Is the school involved in organizing and promoting Xtreme Trips?

Xtreme Trips HS has relationships with many schools across the country. We assist their classes in planning an Xtreme Trip during their summer and spring breaks, educational tours and various other types of trips and events. We are always more than happy to assist students, parents, and/or faculty in putting together the right Xtreme Trip for their school & class. Please keep in mind that most of our trips are organized as non-school sponsored trips and most schools are not allowed to promote or organize these trips. This means that Xtreme Trips HS works directly with students and/or parents to organize our trips. We provide the trained staff and EMT’s on the selected trip. (NOTE: If a school does promote or organize a trip, it is a school-sponsored and teacher-chaperoned trip.

Is there an opportunity to have and participate in a parent information meeting?

Absolutely. Xtreme Trips’ Trip Coordinator’s host online informational meetings prior to the group’s registration deadline; however, should you miss the informational meeting, contact Xtreme Trips HS and a customer service representative would be happy to send you a link to the recorded informational meeting. We appreciate that you may have questions and concerns and want to provide you with all the necessary information regarding our trips.

Do students select their own roommates?

Xtreme travelers always select their own roommates. For senior grad trips, Xtreme promoters and organizers are required to fill out a rooming list based on the students who have paid in full and preliminary rooming is done up to 3 months prior to the trip. For our bus trips, students choose their roommates on the bus on the way up to Orlando. It is the student's responsibility to make sure they have their roommates. If the student's roommates cancel, they are responsible for finding new roommates and/or paying for price increases due to having fewer roommates than when they originally signed up.

The total price of our trips is "per person" and based on a quad-occupancy room (4 paid in full travelers in a room.) Double and Triple occupancy rooming is available for an additional amount per person. Xtreme does not assume responsibility for the additional costs if student travelers do not have enough roommates.

Travelers under the age of 18 wishing to have co-ed roommates must each have an authorization form signed and notarized prior to the trip. They must give it to an Xtreme Manager in order to receive their room keys.
