When choosing tour tracks, you must choose the entire row of activities as your first or second or third choice.  EACH ROW REPRESENTS A TOUR TRACK and a child will go on the three designated sites in a row.  Example:  If you select Tour Track 1, your child will be part of a group that travels together from Brain Quest to Aikido to CSI.  The children remain with this group of children and its assigned chaperones for the entire program.
