Mission Trip Agreement Student Parent Expectations for Participation (Please initial each expectation): Attend all training sessions with the team prior to the trip. Attend team building times and team retreat, if applicable. Discuss in advance with the team leader if a scheduling conflict arises. Approval must be obtained to miss a meeting. Maintain Christ-like character and behavior. Handle any and all medical needs/immunizations prior to the trip. Raise prayer and/or financial support. Pay acceptance fee as noted in trip booklet at first team/parent meeting February 15. Commit to: Praying before, during, and after the trip, submitting to the authority of the leaders, valuing unity of the team, and having a

flexible, servant attitude.

Payment Schedule If I am able to participate in the Mission Journey I commit to raise support and submit:

Percentage or Amount Deadline

See trip book for acceptance fee amount With approved application and/or by first team meeting

50% Within 2 months of departure

75% Within 1 month of departure

85% Within 2 weeks of departure

Balance Remaining Prior to departure

**Failure to adhere to these deadlines may result in removal from trip.

Student Parent Cancellation Procedure: Applicant must submit a letter in writing to the Student Missions Coordinator stating the reason they no longer wish to participate in the trip. Applicant must send a letter to supporters informing them of his/her decision to not go on the trip and advising them that support will go

towards others on the trip. For trips in June, cancellation must occur before March 1 for no additional costs to be incurred. If airline ticket has been purchased, student

will be responsible for that amount. For trips in July, cancellation must occur before April 1 for no additional costs to be incurred. If cancellation occurs after these dates, the applicant must pay the difference between the cost of the trip and amount of support raised. Plane tickets will be retained by Bent Tree for future use. If at least 50% of the fund raising is not in by the time to buy plane tickets, payment for that will be requested.

Student Parent Trip Guidelines: For medical expenses incurred during a trip, receipts will be obtained and given to the parent(s) upon return. Reimbursement to Bent

Tree needs to take place as quickly as possible. Filing claims with your insurance company is at your discretion and will not be done by Bent Tree and/or its staff.

If a student becomes ill and needs to return home, the expense will be the responsibility. If medically necessary, an adult will accompany the student. If not, the student will fly home unaccompanied.

If a behavior is deemed unacceptable by Bent Tree staff or its trip leaders, the student will be removed from the team or sent home at the s expense.

I agree to have my name posted on the Bent Tree Bible Fellowship website from January 23-25 for team placement decisions. If you do not give permission to have their name posted, sign here.
