The cost is $4,235 ($5,719 with airfare). The price is based on a group of 25 participants. Registration is only open to Nassau Presbyterian Church members and friends/family members until October 31, 2016, when we will open it up to other churches and religious institutions. A deposit of $500 is required at the time of registration, fully refundable up to 90 days before departure (February 22, 2017).
Passports must be current and should be valid for at least six months from the date of return from the trip (December 2017). As part of the registration process you will be asked to upload a scan of the signature and photo pages of your passport.
