    It will answer a lot of questions, and contains very important information regarding your visit.

    Participants may be excluded from activities if this form has not been completed. These forms must be collected by the Group Leader and presented to your host on the first day of your visit.

    Weather conditions are remarkably different in the Berkshires than elsewhere. Additionally, there are items you'll need that we don't provide.
