A Few Tips For Planning Your Senior Trip

Aug 17, 2007
A senior class trip is a great time in the life of a senior. It's time to celebrate the end of one journey and the beginning of another. There is undoubtedly some planning still to come to ensure a successful trip. The biggest question that needs to be answered is where to go. Trying to locate that perfect destination that will keep everyone happy can be difficult. In fact, it can be down right frustrating, if you let it. However, the most important part of the trip is not the destination at all.

Keep in mind that the senior class trip is made up of seniors. The most important part of the trip is the people who are taking it. If you lose sight of that, you're in for a terrible journey. No one ever looks back on their senior trip and says, "Man, I wish our stupid class President would have picked Cancun instead of Florida. That beach was terrible!" They're just thrilled that instead of going to class for another week, they get to go somewhere away from their parents and have fun.

The more likely scenario is they won't even be able to remember who the class president was five years from now. They'll think back to some small memory of them and their friends doing something totally random. Prank calling all of the girls at the hotel, or a water balloon fight, or enjoying one final bus ride with the gang. These are the things you will remember.

In all likelihood, this could be the last time you ever see some of your classmates. You'll probably keep up with two or three of your closest inner circle. The rest will fade into obscurity. No matter how much you think you'll keep up with everyone, you won't. People change. People move on and so will you. Take advantage of your last fun time with all of them. Don't worry about whether the hotel is four or five stars. Worry about enjoying the company of your friends. Appreciate the fantastic times that you've had with them.

If you're worried about finding a good deal on the trip, you shouldn't have to look far. There are numerous travel agencies that would bend over backwards for a group of your size. They can offer you multiple discounts that will allow you to find what you need. If they can't bring you what you need, try an online company. All you have to do is watch TV for a few minutes and you'll be inundated with a number of discount travel commercials. Just shop around and you'll be sure to find what you want.

Keep planning and keep trying to make everyone happy. Just don't let the details get in the way of what this senior class trip is all about. Enjoy the last moments you have together as seniors. You've been through a lot of ups and downs together. They've all made it possible to be where you are right now.
