Before you leave for the Abroad
Maintain regular communication with your International Cooperator Axiom

Any changes in your health between the time of application and departure to Abroad.
Contact your Campus:
Send them a copy of your signed placement letter.

Send any additional information the camp may request.
Prepare for Traveling:
Make two photocopies of all your documents. Pack them in two separate bags, just in case one gets lost.
Buy U.S. dollar traveler’s checks or an international pre-paid debit card.
If you have a bank card, make sure it works in Abroad. You should check with your bank before you leave home to find out about any international fees or service charges that might apply if you use your card in Abroad.
Pack according to the list contained in this book or the list provided by your camp.
Say goodbye to your friends and family and tell them to stay in touch.
