Travel back in time to see Noah's Ark
Deadline: In order to secure your room at the hotel on June 6, we need you to register for the Ark Encounter by May 25, 2019!
ISI at Virginia Tech will sponsor a trip to the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky on June 6-7, 2019 and we are inviting all internationals to travel with us.
The Ark is one of the largest wooden boats ever constructed and is a reproduction of the actual Ark built by Noah as described in the book of Genesis in the Bible. Visitors will be able to explore both outside and inside the gigantic structure. There will also be fascinating exhibits to explain how the craft was constructed and how Noah, his family and all the animals who were transported with him survived.
Those taking part in the Ark Encounter will depart Blacksburg at 11 AM on Thursday, spend the night in a hotel near Lexington, KY, and enjoy the day Friday at the Ark. The group will drive back to Blacksburg late Friday afternoon. An added feature on Thursday will be a visit to the Fayette Mall in Lexington for dinner.
The cost for this event will be $110.00 per person. That fee includes a ticket the Ark Encounter and lodging at the hotel. A free breakfast is provided by the hotel on Friday morning, but other meals on Thursday and Friday will be paid for by participants.
Children: There is no hotel charge for children stying in the room with their parents. For the Ark Encounter tickets, prices are as follows: Youth (13-17 years) - $25.00, Children (5-12 years) - $15.00, and Children (4 and under) Free. The fees for children will be collected during the trip.
