How can I register a group for SLU 301?
You have two options for registering you and your students for SLU 301. Either is fine with us - we just want you to be able to do what is best and easiest for you. Either option below will ensure your groups are put on the same bus and in the same hotel as long as you fill in the same group name during registration.
- Register as one Group via our online form (Links go live below for registration in late September): This means your church/organization is paying SLU for everyone in your group. You can only register this way through our online form. You will need to download and fill out this spreadsheet completely for each member of your group and submit here. Please note that you will be held accountable for the registration terms if you register this way (even though you don't "sign" the terms as you do on our registration site). Go here to make sure you understand the trip terms. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Register as an Individual or Family through our website: You will choose this option if everyone in your group is paying separately. We can still keep your group together on the same bus and at the same hotel, but you don't have to handle the payments as a group. Just have your students enter the same group name when prompted so we know to keep you together.
What are the requirements to attend SLU 301?
Before Attending SLU 301: All attendees under the age of 18 must have completed the SLU 101 and SLU 201 program before attending SLU 301. We also recommend spreading the experiences out and not completing them in the same summers when possible. Chaperones must be 18 or older to attend.
Age Requirements: There is not an age limit on SLU 301 attendees. The only requirement is that a student who is under 17 must attend with an adult chaperone. Many students attend while they are in college or have graduated, and other students attend with an adult family member.
Families are Welcome! We encourage adult family members to take the opportunity to attend SLU 301 with their students. Siblings may attend if they are over 18, as we do not accept students under the age of 18 who have not attended SLU 101 and SLU 201. Please know that we will do a lot of walking and this trip is physically demanding. Please be prepared to participate in 100% of the experience as an adult chaperone.
Can families or parents travel to 301 with their students?
SLU encourages families and parents to travel together to our international trips. These trips are life-transforming and are a wonderful way to build memories together as well as for you and your children to grow together in faith and in setting goals for the future. We do not accept students under the age of 18 who have not attended SLU 101 and SLU 201. Parents who enroll in 301 must agree to abide by the same rules and schedule as all other 301 participants.
