Washington DC Trip FAQ’s
How do I sign up?
All participants must sign up using the Worldstrides website (link above). All payments and payment plans are made directly to/with Worldstrides.
How do I pick my hotel roommates?
Hotel roommates are selected during March through a Google form in the DC Google Classroom. Failure to fill out the form will result in selections being made for you. Once hotel roommates are assigned, changes will not be made.
Can parents chaperone?
Brookpark uses staff members as chaperones. At this time, we do not use parent chaperones.
Do I need extra money?
No, all meals are included with the cost of the trip, however many students like to take extra money for snacks and souvenirs.
