SCAT Tours for Rotary Youth Exchange Students


SCAT recognizes that students and their parents have paid a lot of money for these trips. However, that does not mean that students have the right to do as they wish while on the tour. Our tours are recreational and educational trips, not an opportunity to party non-stop, stay up late at night and do as you please. The tour director and the tour chaperons have the full authority and right to control all students’ behavior, regardless of the student's age. Read this document carefully and if you agree to follow the rules, return it with all the required signatures along with the other required documents. Your reservation is not complete until this document is received with the two required signatures.


Simple Rules…..

...and what happens if YOU choose to break them.


  1. Any Drinking or possession of alcohol (we can & will search personal belongings)…

  2. Any use of illegal Drugs or possession of drugs (we can & will search personal belongings)…

  3. Leave your room after bed check and the security taping of doors for any reason

  4. Shoplifting or stealing especially from each other or from hotel rooms…

  5. Break any hotel rule such as smoking in a room or encounter with security such as for too noisy…

  6. Break any local, state or federal law or have any encounter with law enforcement officials…

  7. This is a non-smoking tour as most of the students are underage and can not legally purchase tobacco products. Anyone caught smoking inside of a hotel or within 50 feet of the door will be SENT HOME...


…and YOU have made the choice to GO HOME IMMEDIATELY, at your expense – no refund.



  1. This is an ENGLISH language ONLY tour (even when in your hotel room because it is impolite to speak your native language when others cannot follow the conversation).

  2. Photo I.D. badges must be worn at all times – it should be put on before you come out of your room each morning and removed when you are back in your room at room check time (except when swimming) – no exceptions.

  3. You will have a nightly curfew, maybe as early as 10 PM, when you must be in your hotel room (this is a hotel rule for youth tours). If you can’t live with this, do not sign up for the tour.

…..there may be penalties such as not participating in scheduled events, cleaning the bus, spending the day with a staff member instead of friends, loading or unloading luggage from the bus or other things to be determined by the tour staff.  Repeated breaking of the above minor rules causes disruption to the smooth flow of the operation of the tour for other participants/staff and can result in being sent home.


INTERPRETATION of any violation of the above regulations is left up to the tour staff and does not have to be listed in print in this document to be considered a violation. Repeated violation of ANY regulations, regardless of how insignificant they may seem, that are considered to be impeding the success of a tour, may be cause for a student to be sent home early, with proper written warning, at their own expense with out refund of any fees previously paid. Tour staff has the right to initiate and enforce additional rules and/or punishment as deemed necessary for the success of the tour.


I have read and understand the above regulations and consequences of violations and agree to abide by them. Pleading ignorance on the tour, saying that you didn’t read it, is NOT an excuse.
