Out of State Travel
The Century High School Orchestra Departement will offer an extended tour every two years. Eligibility for this trip is limited to Centrury orchestra members grades 10-12. All students are expected to follow all school and NDHSAA rules at all times during the trip. These trips are optional and are in no way required for participation in the curricular orchestras. This trip will often, but not always, be scheduled over a break or after school is out to minimize the amount of school being missed. Past trips have included Albuquerque NM and Orlando FL. These optional tours will generally cost between $1,000 and $2,000 per student.
All orchestra trips will be appropriatly balanced with a good mix of educational, musical, and fun experiences; highly structured with an active and well planned itinerary in which students are busy throughout the trip; adult chaperoned with a ratio of one adult for every 15-20 students, who are with the students at all times.
Whenever possible, a doctor or nurse travels witht he orchestra. Other district orchestra directors often serve as chaperones as well.
