Waitlisting Works: Although trips fill early, every year some people have to postpone their trips due to medical or other considerations. If you are on a trip's waitlist, we'll contact you when a place becomes available. Also, if there are enough people on a waitlist, we will try to add another trip for all of you. So if a trip you want is full, let us know you're interested by clicking Waitlist.
