LIFE EXPERIENTIAL TRIPS

As part of its continuing education program Life supports Experiential Trips to various local venues for its members and their immediate family. These trips are managed entirely by Life volunteers and require sign ups utilizing this website. For all events sign-up and payment will be via PayPal.  Tour prices are for contracted special group rates. This may result in minimum and maximum tour group size.  Tours must be paid for when signing up.  Fees are non-refundable unless the member or coordinator can find a replacement and member notifies the coordinator at least 3 days before the event.

As with all our programs LIFE member volunteers are needed to support this effort.  Tour leaders are required for all events.  If you are interested in helping out with this new program contact Marie Ruckstuhl at marie.ruckstuhl@gmail.com.

Trips will be published on this site when they are confirmed by the Trip committee.  Sign-up forms for these Experiential Trips will activate approximately 3 weeks prior to the each trips.  The names of all participants must be listed on the registration form.

Trip attendees must enter as a group in order to get the group rate.  So please arrive 10-15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
