If you are a school requesting the FutureMaker experience and are 80+ miles from Wichita, we also ask that you find 2 other middle/high schools in your area that would like to share a 3 day trip over a Tuesday-Thursday. We package trips this way to provide the experience to more students, while allowing fuel costs to be shared across more schools, saving each some money.
2020-2021 reimbursement rates for a standard 3 day trip:
Hotel (3 double rooms each night for 3 total nights @ $125 per room) = $1,125
Generator Fuel (8 gallons per day @ $3/gal) = $72
Truck Fuel (7 miles-per-gallon @$3/gal) = varies by distance, for a 200 mile round trip, truck fuel would be $85.71 for example
Team lunch (5 people per day @$8/person) = $120
Grand total for trip = $1,402.71 (or $467.57 for each school if 3 schools participate)
