Michigan State University

August 1-8, 2020

We are asking for a $200 deposit to secure your spot. After that, you can make additional payments to fit your financial situation. Please click this link to make your $200 deposit:

We are estimating the total cost to be approximately $1400 per person. We are working on some fundraiser patches, scholarships, and other alternatives to reduce that cost. We won't know the exact cost until we have secured airline tickets. 

If you are in a position in which you can pay more than the minimum deposit, please only pay up to a maximum of $1000 for now. Once we know the total amount, we will let you know so that you can pay the balance. This will avoid trying to get refunds from Council. If you have any questions, please email

The cost will include patches, a t-shirt, hoodie, neckerchief, and some other swag. There will be options to purchase additional items such as duffel bags.
