Do Key CLubs Send More THan One Student?
We’ve had as many as eight from the same school. Every school is entitled to two delegates. Two same gender students from the same school can room together. Even so, there are schools that send just one member.
What If No one Else From My School Is Going?
Not a problem! By Saturday afternoon everyone will have been introduced and you’ll know your roommates. Typically, everyone has a “permanent” roommate, but roommate pairings will rotate at the convention. Everyone is welcome and treated as a valued member of the group!
Who Are The ChaperonEs For The TOur?
The Kansas District has a group of male and female faculty advisors and Kiwanians who have been on prior tours and are accustomed to traveling with students. All adults attending the convention must pass a background check.
How Are The Attractions Selected?
The emphasis is on variety. Every attempt is made to strike a balance between indoor and outdoor activities, blending cultural and educational choices with entertainment and physical activities. Simply put, if it isn’t going to be fun and rewarding, we probably won’t do it.
How Much Spending MOney Will Be needed?
Fees are typically $1,000 to $1,100, which includes transportation, lodging, at least seventeen meals, the convention registration, admission to the selected attractions, pins and sidetrips. Spending money for snacks, gifts, souvenirs, personal items and, for some, clothes, depends on your shopping habits. Most Key Clubbers spent in the $125 -$200 range, although several spend less and a few spend more.
