WIBC Frequently Asked Questions

If I choose the hotel lodging, is there supervision?

  • Yes, we run a very tight ship. There are 6 full-time, adult chaperone/hotel monitors who stay up all night. Students found out of their rooms after curfew are sent home immediately. Here are the regs that each student AND parent must sign in agreement during online registration:
