During the six-day trip, South Carolina's students will visit places
like Mount Vernon, the White House, Arlington Cemetery, the U.S. Supreme
Court and the Smithsonian museums. They'll also tour the U.S. Capitol
and meet with our state's senators and congressmen.
The students heard all about the trip during the annual Youth Tour
orientation. They also got a briefing on how to pack, what to wear and
how to behave while on the trip.
Seven chaperones, representing various co-ops across the state, will oversee the students during the weeklong trip.
Photos from the trip will be updated daily. View them here . You can also follow the group on twitter .
