7th & 8th Grade Trip to Washington DC
We are excited to invite your child to join us on our annual trip to Washington DC. This trip provides an opportunity for our students to further their learning about the Holocaust while bonding with their peers and connecting to the BJ community outside of the classroom. We will visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, tour monuments, celebrate Shabbat together, and learn and reflect on our experiences.
In order to maximize our time and ensure a meaningful experience, we will be leaving Friday morning, March 4, 2022 at 7:15AM. We will return from Washington DC on Sunday, March 6 around 6:30PM.
This program is included for all students enrolled in Haverim ‘20-’21 (current 8th grade) and ‘21-’22 (current 7th grade), or can be purchased for $450. We hope you will consider joining us for this special trip!
Registration closed Tuesday, November 23, 2021.
What are our Covid Protocols for this trip?
This plan has been formulated based on guidelines from the CDC, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), and our peer programs, building upon BJ’s Re-entry Task Force August report and campus operations plan. These guidelines are based on the conditions on the ground today. As such, they are subject to change if conditions change.
- All participants are required to submit proof they are fully vaccinated (two weeks after JJ shot or second Pfizer or Moderna shot) before the trip. No exceptions.
- All participants must provide proof of negative PCR test results within 3 days of departure for the trip.
- Students will be in shared hotel rooms for the trip, as well as busses. When with their hotel pod, they are allowed to be unmasked, but as of now, all group travel will be masked.
