When you’re a chaperone or group leader for a student travel trip like the ones organized by Son Tours, there’s a lot to keep track of and do for yourself and for the students. We want to help, so we have compiled a fantastic checklist for group leaders, chaperones, and students for various stages of the trip, including a packing list, tips for going along on student travel trips, and more.
As you travel, there will be responsibilities at various stages of the trip that you must fulfill as Group Leader or Chaperone. Either way, make sure that these tasks are completed to ensure everyone’s safety and that the trip is as smooth as possible.
□ Announce your rules on the bus as well as hotel curfew hours.
□ Have students report to you any existing room damage as they check in.
□ Supervise evening activities in the hotel – at least one chaperone must be present if students will be using the swimming pool.
□ Meet with the security guard to outline your expectations.
□ As necessary after student curfew, meet with the Son Tours escort to review the day and plan for the following day.
