As long as you have given us your correct flight information, we will be able to track any changes to your arrival time. Someone will pick you up, be patient and do not leave the Airport.
Ample, gender divided, shared accommodation is available at the Centre. However, due to number of participants expected, we ask that those who can to bring tents, your own bedding and supplies. We encourage people who live within commuting distance to sleep at home and offer billets if possible.
If you require private accommodation, you will need to make your own arrangements at your own expense. If this is what you choose to do, make sure to reserve early; offsite accommodations are very busy during this season. The information package includes a list of nearby B&Bs, hotels and motels.
There will be daily dragon practice sessions during CIT Week. To join, send a message to the Dragon team.
Want to get an idea what you would be practicing for? See the video’s featuring our dragons on our Youtube Channel.
Spending time at the International Centre as a volunteer will help deepen your understanding of our community and organization. We encourage you to arrive early and stay on after programs to help with making CIT Week/IAD a success. See the information package for further details on short-term volunteering.
