    I tried to reach my daughter Amber Devine while on the Washington trip to see if she was ok. I did not get a response. This is her first time away without her parents. I understand the telephones would be collected at some point but i would think a chaperones number would be on the website or would have been provided? what happens in case of an emergency? Is there any one in contact with them?

    • Hello Mrs. Divine,
      This is Mrs Dubei. Thank you for your comment. I understand your concern.

      I am here in NYC but in contact with Mr McMahon & the other chaperones. All is well on the trip. Due to the recent rage of sending inappropriate texts (“s-xting”) they did collect phones. Should there be a true emergency that requires contact, you may call Mr McMahon’s cell phone: 917-365-8678. Please only call in a true emergency as he is busy running the trip.

      Phones will be returned early tomorrow AM.
