How can I become a chaperone?
Take part in the experience. Your student's teacher is the decision maker on parent participation and they make the chaperone choices for their trip. Once the teacher decides about parent participation and chaperones, Student Discoveries makes the trip enjoyable for everyone! Adults are able to book double rooms sharing with other adult participants or single rooms, depending on their wishes and budget (prices provided specifically for your program's itinerary). Student Discoveries also helps teachers and chaperones by providing a suggested list of guidelines and information for chaperones to get everyone working together to create the most enjoyable and safest experience for your student.
