General Trip Information

General Trips & InfoThe following general information pertains to all overnight trips.

Eligibility
For all trips lasting longer than three days and two nights, participants must attend an NSSRA overnight trip prior to the registration deadline for the desired trip in order for our therapeutic recreation specialists to assess the individual’s readiness for the trip. If a participant has not attended an overnight trip with NSSRA and is interested in a trip lasting
longer than three days and two nights, please contact Recreation Specialist Jerod Mikkelsen at (847) 509-9400 x6833 or jmikkelsen@nssra.org to discuss eligibility. Assessments will be completed at the end of all trips to determine eligibility for future trips. All participants are expected to follow scheduled activities.

Housing
Participants will be sharing rooms, and possibly beds, with peers. If you want your own room or bed, you must call Recreation Specialist Jerod Mikkelsen at (847) 509-9400 x6833 or jmikkelsen@nssra.org by the designated registration deadline to make arrangements. An additional fee may apply for these arrangements if they are available. Refer to the specific trip information for more details regarding housing. For adult trips, NSSRA staff members may not be present in all rooms. Room assignments will be made at the staff’s discretion. Participants are expected to stay in their rooms and be respectful of their roommates.
