When is the trip?
All Dartmouth College Hillel Trips leave on official Dartmouth breaks. We will share information about the exact dates as soon as we have it (though this will usually not be before registration has closed), you are encouraged to register for Birthright even if you aren’t sure that the dates will work for you for this round (students who register but are unable to attend because of date conflicts, because they are waitlisted, or for other reasons are given priority registration for the next round).
What if I sign up and then I can’t go?
When you register, you are required to pay a deposit to be considered for admission. If you decide you cannot go, you can withdraw and receive your deposit back if you do so before the withdraw deadline. If you withdraw after you will lose the deposit. The deadline will be communicated to all students who register, so that there is no confusion.
If I register am I guaranteed a spot?
We truly work very hard to accommodate everyone who registers, but we are required to register enough students to fill all of our spaces plus a significant waitlist (because many students often find that they have a date conflict or another reason for which they must delay participation).
Can I go with friends from other schools?
Non-Dartmouth students can sign up for the Dartmouth trip but Dartmouth students will get priority if there are not enough spots. Same for siblings / relatives.
Is there anything I have to pay for?
Participants will receive their deposit back upon completion of the trip. Participants are responsible for transportation to and from the point of embarkation (usually in the New York) and for the cost of an average of one meal a day on their own. Participants are also asked to bring between $60 and $90 in tip money for tour providers in Israel and to cover group expenses like t-shirts. Any shopping or additional spending money is at your discretion.
