BreakAway Sign-ups


Sign-up day will be Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 7:00am in the Phelps Room located in the south entrance of the Todd M. Beamer Student Center. After sign-ups close in Phelps, please come to the Office of Christian Outreach to sign-up. Places will be filled first come, first served.

This year, we will be going to: Angola, Louisiana; Appalachia, Tennessee; Nashville, Tennessee; Deering, New Hampshire; Denver, Colorado; St. Louis, Missouri; Kansas City, Missouri; San Francisco, California; Savannah, Georgia; St. Louis, Missouri; and Toronto, Canada. Because the Toronto trip is international, you will need to bring your passport or a color copy of your passport at the time of sign-up. San Francisco and Angola participants will need to bring their driver's license to the office.

All BreakAway trips are offered on a first come, first served basis, so plan accordingly and come early if you prefer a certain trip.

All trips, domestic and international, require a non-refundable deposit at sign-up, which will be applied to your total trip cost.  Deposits must be paid at sign-up, in cash or check only. Deposits are $50 for domestic trips and $100 for international trips. Checks should be made out to Wheaton College/BreakAway, and the name of the trip choice should appear in the memo section.

Please refer to our “Trips” page for more information about each individual trip.
