Group members cannot skip group activities (including service activities, reflection, group dinners, etc.). You might be able to meet during free time if approved by the trip leaders however, keep in mind the purpose of the trip is to engage with your group and site.
Bringing money is necessary since you will be responsible for covering the cost of your meals during your travel and free-day. Additionally, most of the trips have allotted time to explore the area, so you may want to bring additional money to purchase souvenirs. However, you are solely responsible for safeguarding your money during the ABP trip. The amount of money you decide to bring is up to you, and is dependent on the trip. Your ABP Coordinator(s) will elaborate more on the amount during your pre-trip meetings.
