We want to make these trips available at a very affordable cost to ensure every child is treated the same. We will have available a Captain who is proficient in ASL.
We want to provide trips for children who are shunned by a lot of society. Joy can be seen in their eyes as much as anyone else. Ask how you can help provide a trip for someone such as this.
We also want to do all we can to offer trips for those who are disabled. As of now, we do not have available accommodations to meet all these needs but we can make an effort to do what we can with what we have.
Everyone deserves an opportunity to experience things that fascinate us all. It's sad that money has to be an obstacle. We want to make these trips available to those children who otherwise would never have the chance to experience them.
