Summer Trips 2018

Driving Through Dairyland: Golfing in Wisconsin with Mr. Newmark and Mr. McArthur

June 10-14, 2018

Do you love to golf? Does a road trip help you reconnect with your soul? Do you like applying mathematics to the world around you? If your answers are yes, yes, and yes, this trip is for you! We will be golfing, calculating, sightseeing, and unwinding after a fulfilling school year. Our trip begins Sunday morning, June 10, 2018, and takes us on a road trip through Wisconsin, from the shores of Lake Michigan to the Dells to the hardwood forests. We will be playing at least 5 rounds of golf, including a round at Kohler's spectacular Blackwolf Run!

Throughout the trip, Mr. McArthur and Mr. Newmark will share their passion for golf and math by employing a variety of math applications to the game. All lodging, meals, tee times, and transportation are included in the price. Students will simply need to be dropped off and picked up at Latin. Students may bring their own clubs, or they may be rented. Previous golf experience and enthusiasm recommended.

This will be our fourth consecutive annual trip. Both Zach McArthur and Jeff Newmark are currently math teachers at Latin. Mr. Newmark annually chaperones a 5th grade trip to Laredo Taft, has led a summer trip to Paris, a summer camping trip to Kettle Moraine, and a few high school ski trips to Colorado. Mr. McArthur leads upper school Project Week trips, mostly of the volunteer/service kind. Mr. Newmark is very familiar with the state of Wisconsin, as his daughter is a junior at Madison!

No student will be allowed to participate in Summer at Latin who has any outstanding tuition balance.

A limited amount of financial aid is available for these trips. Any student who currently receives aid and will be receiving aid in the fall from Latin is eligible. Please contact us at 312.582.6080 for more information. In case of a student's withdrawal from the program, the Summer at Latin Office must be notified in writing. Latin reserves the right to cancel a program if unforeseen circumstances occur. Notification of cancellation of a program will be done as early as possible. Each trip has a minimum and maximum enrollment. If the minimum is not met, families will be notified, and the price will either be increased, or the trip will be canceled.
