Life Teen has partnered with Dube Travel Agency to make WYD 2016 a life-changing and safe experience. Dube Travel Agency was founded on July 1, 1962. In the past 51 years, DTA has remained a Catholic-family owned company which allows them to insure that their family and faith values are the primary ruling principles in running the company and that is what has allowed them to succeed and continue to grow. Dube Travel has three locations in Maine but serves groups across the United States. Dube Travel’s first World Youth Day was in 1997, to WYD Paris with the Salesian Youth Ministry and the Diocese of Portland Maine. Since then they have grown numbers of pilgrims for each event (including Rome, Toronto, Cologne, Sydney, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro). For World Youth Day Krakow, DTA is expecting to move well over 3000 pilgrims with groups from many dioceses over the United States. Life Teen Staff traveled to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2013 to experience the Dube Travel Agency and are confident in the WYD experience that they will bring to our parishes.
Additonally, Dube Travel Agency is partnered with Mazurkas Travel. Mazurkas is a leading Destination Management Company in Poland & the official travel company of WYD 2016! They are based out of Warsaw and have an office in Krakow. Mazurkas has over 25 years experience in managing meetings, events, congresses and corporate and leisure travel throughout Poland, and are uniquely qualified to provide arrangements for attendees of Krakow World Youth Day 2016.
*Note: Itinerary & Pricing are not finalized until airline fees/taxes are set and WYD logistics are announced from Poland. These are very close estimates of the final price.
In addition to the great experience of Dube Travel Agency, the Life Teen Staff will be hosting day programming and excursions in Poland, catechetical sessions at holy sites around Poland, daily Mass & XLT in Krakow. Life Teen will also be bringing our own musicians (TBA) to assist in liturgies and prayer services. All of the hotels/dorms are within 5 minutes walking of each other in the Jewish District of Krakow. Life Teen Staff have already visited Poland in October 2014 to scope out the city and see the sites of WYD events ahead of the 2016 pilgrimage. To check out their findings from that trip CLICK HERE. Life Teen Staff and Dube Travel Agency will be on hand to make sure all needs are met and all excursions are exceptional experiences!
Life Teen and Dube Travel will offer Webinars for group leaders and parents of participants at a designated date. These Webinars will be recorded for those that cannot attend live. Prior to departure, Life Teen & DTA will hold a preparation meeting for all group participants to review all documents, review the trip itinerary, documentation requirements, packing tips, and all other relevant information.
All Hotels/Dorms are located within the Jewish District of Krakow which is very close to the city center. This will provide easy access to other Life Teen hotels/dorms (5 minutes walking) as well as many of the WYD sites. The only time pilgrims will not be in the hotels/dorms is the first night of the trip we still stay at an accommodation TBD in Warsaw, Poland and the evening of the Prayer Vigil with Pope Francis will be camping style at WYD site TBD.
Payments per person are due according to the following schedule:
