Preparation for families before their children travel with us is important. How each local group approaches it may vary, but children and their parents will have lots of opportunities to meet the other group members (helpers and children) before the trip. Regular home visits are also made to ensure that the children get to know and have confidence in their helpers.

Getting ready for a trip away can be very exciting, and if it is a child’s first trip away from home, can be an anxious time for children and parents alike. Stay calm and keep in touch with your Group Leader who will be happy to answer any questions which occur to you as the trip draws near.
