Trip components

This trip allows students to experience post-secondary life first-hand, as they stay in a real-life University residence building. No matter which trip theme you choose, students will be staying in Brock’s Lowenberger residence. Our traditional dormitory rooms provide a safe and manageable space, ensuring that students are housed in one common area. Rooms have twin beds and access to a shared washroom. Bed linens and pillows are provided. Access to each floor is restricted to the occupants and exterior doors are locked each night. Conference Services operates a 24-hour guest services desk and Campus Security Services monitors the campus 24 hours a day. Hotel-style accommodations may also be available at an additional charge. Ask us for more information.

We work with the campus dining hall to provide buffet-style meals throughout your trip. Our all-you-care-to-eat meals are nutritious with a variety of choices available. Our dining hall is vigilant about food allergies and we are happy to accommodate vegetarian, vegan, Halal or Kosher and lactose- or gluten-free meals. All meals are included in your two- or three-day stay, with the exception of lunch upon arrival on day 1 of your adventure.

Before packing for camp, review the packing list that has been provided. Remember that residence does provide bedding and a pillow but NOT a washcloth and towel. Helpful tip: You may also wish to mark your child’s items with his or her name in case they get misplaced.

We highly recommend schools choose cancellation insurance for the benefit and peace of mind of parents, teachers and schools. Purchasing cancellation insurance ensures that parents are reimbursed their full, unused trip fees, which have been paid to Brock University, if their child becomes sick or is unable to attend the trip for any other reason. Unfortunately refunds will not be issued past May 1 when cancellation insurance is not purchased. Insurance Policy Benefits:

  • Prior to arrival and including the day of arrival: students receive a full refund (excluding the cost of cancellation insurance).
  • During the trip: cancellations are assessed on a case-by-case basis and any unused fees are refunded (excluding the cost of cancellation insurance).

Cancellation insurance, if selected, must be purchased for each student of the entire group. Insurance only applies to fees charged by Brock University. Where cancellation insurance has not been purchased, the standard cancellation policy applies. Brock University will issue refunds to the school only.
