Frequently Asked Questions


When can I check-in to my hotel?

Check-in will run from 1pm to 5pm on the first day of the trip. Every individual group will receive a designated check-in time roughly 1 week before the start of trip. On a related note, the hotel check-out process will begin at 8am on the final day of the trip.


Does the price of the trip include transportation?

No. Students are responsible for finding their own transportation to and from Daytona.


What is the best way to get down there?

While some students elect to drive, the majority opt to fly. For the students who take flights, the Daytona Beach and Orlando airports serve as viable options for a final destination.


Can friends from other school come to Daytona?
