NASC National Conference
PASC Heads to Florida
“Aye, mate!” Make your course for Orlando, Florida and come along on the voyage to “Discover the Treasures of Leadership” at the 2014 NASC National Conference. From June 27-29, we drop anchor at Ocoee High School, host of the 2014 conference On June 25, students and advisors from all over PA will head South to Orlando till Monday, June 30.
Travelers will depart from either the Pittsburgh or Philadelphia Airports and head to the amazing Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, located in the Walt Disney World® Resort. The Hilton Orlando is an Official Walt Disney World® Hotel and is ideally situated next to the Downtown Disney® Marketplace, Downtown Disney® West Side, and Cirque du Soleil® PASC squads, composed of advisors and students, will then begin their venture.
The adventure begins as soon as the planes touch down in Orlando, as we head to “the moon”. Ok, only virtually as we take a trip to the Kennedy Space Center and tour the NASA facility and Apollo/Saturn V Center to see rockets and their lunch pads and enjoy a shuttle lunch experience.
The Magic Kingdom and Epcot are on the agenda next as we visit Walt Disney World, which covers an area twice the size of New York’s Manhattan. There will be plenty of rides mixed with a dose of Disney characters, storytelling and thrilling roller coasters. At Epcot, there will be lots of different countries to immerse in food, shopping and culture. We will try to fit in some time in a water park for sun and adventure.
On Saturday, the real adventure starts as we join fellow conference delegates from across America to head to Ocoee High School and the excitement of the NASC Conference. Continue to check out NASC.us for more details about the actual conference schedule and programs. Sunday evening will be spent with all the students and advisors of Region 2 (NY, NJ, MD and DE) for a fun-filled final night at Dave and Busters. Our delegation will leave the “magic,” the friends and the excitement of the Orlando conference as we journey home to PA on Monday, June 30.
The total fee for the trip and conference is $1400. This will include all transportation (plane and bussing), registration fee for the conference, hotel stay at a Disney resort, all entertainment including entrances to the Disney properties and visit to the Kennedy Space Center, meals (except lunches on pre-trip), chaperones, a special Region 2 activity on Sunday night at Dave and Busters, buttons, and state and region shirts.
