FOOD: Breakfast will be provided by the hotel. All group suppers are included with the exception of Friday and Monday evenings. Students will be responsible for all lunches.
COST: The total cost for this trip including round trip airfare, all ground transportation, group travel insurance, accommodation, sightseeing activities, festival fees, performance costs, chaperone costs, and group breakfasts and
dinners will be $1550.00/student. Please note that CAMPA provides a significant transportation subsidy for all music tours! See the back of this sheet for payment details.
FUNDRAISING: In order to provide this opportunity and keep costs down for individual students, it is important that every member of the Campbell Music Family support the CAMPA group and individual fundraisers in some way. Please check for group fundraising events posted on the CAMPA website: campa.ca. Working at CAMPA bingos is a great individual fundraiser - please contact the CAMPA Bingo Coordinator, Maureen Pennington, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in earning funds to offset your personal tour fees. Each person working a CAMPA bingo earns 50 trip reward points, which equates to $50. For example, if you have 4 people working one bingo for you, you can earn $200 toward your tour fees in one bingo evening! If you currently have funds in your family’s account, you will have received a statement during late August 2019. All bingos are held at Centennial Bingo (2311 2nd Avenue) and the upcoming bingo
dates will be posted at campa.ca.
