Come join us for our 8th annual trip to beautiful Puerto Peñasco!

The cost is $1,500, which includes:
The project fee does not include:
Participants must pay a NON/REFUNDABLE, NON-TRANSFERABLE deposit of $250. Applications will not be considered complete, nor will your spot be secured, until your deposit has been paid.
The remaining balance MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN April 14th, 2018. If you don't meet this deadline, your spot may be made available to a person on the waiting list.
Register online (scroll down to start the registration process).
Once registration is complete and your deposit paid, a paper application, along with other required forms will be available.
You will mail the paperwork to the Project Chair to secure your spot. No application paperwork will be accepted without payment of your full deposit.
Space is limited! Registration deadline is February 17th, 2018 or until our maximum number of participants has been reached, which ever comes first. After this time you can apply to be placed on a wait-list.
We require at least ONE ADULT participant for every 6 youth. We are unable to accomodate groups of any size that cannot or do not provide sufficient adult chaperones for the youth
Safety and Security
Utah Rotary has established policies and procedures to protect the safety and well-being of all volunteers. Although we cannot avoid every emergency, we have taken several steps to prevent and prepare for an emergency. Please read the Utah Rotary Mexico Code of Conduct. It is essential that our volunteers strictly adhere to these policies in order to ensure their individual safety and the safety of the team.
Several trips are made throughout the year to ensure border crossing, lodging, transportation and logistical needs are meet.
With life and travel outside the United States, there are risks and no 100% guarantees that everything will go as planned or that there will be no incidents. We are very cautious in our preparations and planning to ensure the safety of our participants. Even so, we cannot make a 100% guarantee that everything will go as planned even if we were participating in an activity across the street from your own home.
