We are in the initial stages of a cycling program at our summer camp and I'm definately going with a sag on our trips the first year. It is a great tool to deal with problems. Our pick up has On Star for emergencies and with kids on your first tour, you are likely to run into an issue or two. On another note, the experienced program director's at our camp made it clear to me that the trip had to have a lot of fun for teens to truly enjoy the experience. Plan on stops to swim, canoe, and activities and things kids like to do. We plan to let the kids participate in the planning and daily decision making, so the trip is really theirs within reason. It can still be a challenging ride, but remember they are kids too and they like to have a good time. Good insurance is a must. One claim could ruin your life and don't rely on a release to protect yourself. Good success to you and have a safe trip.
