About the Trips
When youth trips take place, TCEC pays transportation, lodging, meals and other incidental costs incurred with all trips. Students are responsible for souvenirs and any extra personal items they may need.
If you know a student who will be an eighth grader, a junior, or a senior in the 2021-2022 school year, encourage them to submit their name when applications open in early November. More details are available online at www.tcec.coop under “Our Community” then “Youth Programs.”
