Each participant must sign out when leaving the Campus and sign in at the place where they are spending time (Beach, Day Trip, etc).  Everyone must stay in groups of 4 when moving outside the Campus area and Middle School Students must be with an adult or college leader while off campus, at Broadway on the Beach, etc.  Anyone not abiding by the boundaries and rules of the trip will be sent home.  We will maintain the best interest for the group for personal safety and always reside on the side of caution.
