This cost is all-inclusive (air and ground transportation, lodging, all meals, trip T-shirts, etc.) with the exception of the following:

Prestonwood makes a significant financial investment for each participant by covering a portion of the cost for church members. Due to this, we are unable to provide any additional financial assistance for students.
*** All payments and donations are tax-deductible but are nonrefundable/not transferable. ***
