Cape Cod Trip FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

1. When is the Cape Cod trip?
This year the dates of our trip are May 24-26, 2017.  This is the Wednesday through Friday before Memorial Day weekend. We leave school around 7:45am on Wednesday morning and return to WMS at 4:00pm on Friday.
2. How do we travel?  
We will travel in motorcoach buses owned and operated by the Silver Fox Bus Company.
3. Where do we stay?
We stay at Cape Cod Sea Camps in Brewster, MA. This is a summer camp facility with cabins, shower houses, dining hall, beach access, and open spaces for recreation.
4. Does my child get to pick his or her own group?
For their cabins, students will have the opportunity to select 5 students whom they would like to have as cabinmates. Students are guaranteed one of their choices. There will also be times when the entire grade will be together and the students may be with whomever they choose.
The travel groups are assigned. During the day students will travel in their TAG (Teacher Advisory Group). There may be an exception to this given the structure of the TAG groups and the number of buses. We will contact parents if their child does not travel with his or her TAG group.
5. What about supervision?
During the day, there will be 3-4 Wayland staff members on each bus. In the cabin, there will be 1-2 cabin leaders depending on the size of the cabin. During our evening, activities all 7th grade staff members will be there to supervise.
6. Do the school rules still apply?
The normal school rules will apply on the trip. Students and parents should review the behavior guidelines sheet, which is part of this packet.
7. My child has dietary restrictions. Can you accommodate special diet requests?
Yes. The kitchen staff at Cape Cod Sea Camps is used to such requests and is very accommodating. Please contact your child’s cluster leader with specific information and we will do our best to meet your request.
