Vaccinations are not required for most of the countries you will be traveling in, however, it is advised that you consult with the Center for Disease Control at http://www.cdc.gov/ concerning your specific destination country. If you are not a U.S. citizen, please check your local requirements on vaccinations for travel.
No. Transfers are only included from the specified arrival/departure airports and hotels. However, if you need assistance with transfers that are not included in the price, please contact your mission trip planner at 800-747-2157 for assistance.
Yes, you may stay before or after in any of our locations at your own expense, unless you choose to select one of our optional adventure add-ons (see specification location pages for details). Otherwise, please schedule your flights around the planned itinerary.
Depending upon your chosen destination the temperatures can vary anywhere from a mild 65 degrees to high 90′s with humidity. For more detailed climate information please contact your mission trip planner.
Some adventures are more physically strenuous than others but most Lifetree Adventures trips will include at least four 8-hour service days typically in hot and humid environments. Guests should feel comfortable spending multiple days working outdoors and standing most of that time. Temperatures may be hot and humid, so wear cool clothing and a hat, and drink plenty of water. Service projects consist primarily of construction work but some of our trips include ways to help that aren't as physically strenuous. You'll be given the opportunity to work at a level of physical exertion with which you're comfortable.
The majority of our trips are for families with children ages 7 and up, young people, adults and seniors.
Please note that our Lifetree Adventure trips include activities that present certain challenges to guests with special needs. It is strongly recommended that persons requiring assistance be accompanied by a companion who is capable of and totally responsible for providing assistance. Neither Lifetree Adventures nor its suppliers may physically lift or assist guests onto transportation vehicles. Contact your Lifetree Adventures team to discuss your needs. The volunteer service takes place in impoverished neighborhoods that are not easily accessible or navigable to people who have difficulty walking or are restricted to a wheelchair.
Most meals will be provided by our ministry partners. They have been carefully trained to prepare safe and nutritious meals for our guests.
Lifetree Adventures will make every reasonable effort to accommodate some special dietary needs at no additional charge. Unfortunately, we may not be able to accommodate all special dietary needs requested. Please contact your mission trip planner in advance of your departure to advise us of your needs.
The languages will vary depending on the destination that you choose. Please contact your mission trip planner to find out more specifics regarding the languages spoken. The exchange rate fluctuates so we advise that you check the rate just before departure to determine how much cash to carry. Credit cards are generally accepted at most stores and ATM machines are available. You can exchange money at the airport when you arrive.
Lifetree Adventures reserves the right to cancel or reschedule an adventure at any time for any reason, such as if there are too few guests or if the quality of the trip or the safety of the guests would, in our opinion, be compromised, such as may result from unforeseen circumstances (acts of God) or other circumstances beyond the control of Lifetree Adventures.
If we cancel your adventure prior to its scheduled start date, we will attempt to re-book you on another departure of the same adventure during the same season, subject to availability; however, you will bear any resulting airline re-booking charges. If we are unable to re-book you on another departure, our sole obligation to you is to refund your payment to us for the land portion, which refund shall constitute a full settlement. We assume no responsibility for any losses incurred by you on account of non-refundable air tickets or otherwise.
We strongly encourage the purchase of trip insurance that may allow you to recoup these costs in the rare case of such an occurrence. Carefully review any trip insurance policy so that you're aware of any restrictions. If you have any questions please consult your travel specialist.
To reserve space on a trip, a non-refundable $100 deposit is due when you register. Final payment is due no later than 60 days before departure. If final payment has not been received 60 days before departure (based on the postmark date), Lifetree Adventures reserves the right to cancel the reservation. For cancellations 59 or less days before departure, 100% of the trip cost will be forfeited. The same policy applies to any trip extensions.
