When can we book our trip?
The Go Adventure season runs from April 15 to October 31. Available dates are limited as groups often request similar dates so we recommend securing dates in the fall or winter of the previous year. Once the staff work with you to create your ideal basic itinerary, you’ll be quoted a price and sent a contract. After the contract is returned with a 25%, non-refundable deposit your dates will be secured. We will ask you (the group coordinator, teacher or principal) if the evolution of your trip is meeting your expectations, offering you frequent opportunities to provide feedback. Lifeschool's goal is always to meet or exceed your expectations.
