Also, I notice the trips say that you can visit up to 3 of your sponsored children during the trip at no additional cost. So if I just want to visit one child, can I visit with my sponsored child three days in a row? Thanks for your help.

The way the Compassion Planned trips go, they have a "Fun Day" in the schedule when your sponsored children are brought to you.  That is when you can have up to 3 sponsored children brought. There is no extra days to see a sponsored child other than that time.  

If you go to Future Trips, you'll see a group trip to Burkina Faso planned for November 2020. It says "Registration opens in February 2020" so I'd expect it to show up on the first page of trips by the end of this month. Once it shows up you can see costs, approximate schedule (where they will be each day, etc)

Hi Leah! From what I can see on our Future Trips page, our Burkina Faso trip is actually scheduled for November of 2021, and the registration opens on the 23rd of this month. As Sarah mentioned, that's when you'll be able to see the itinerary, approximate cost, etc. 

Our trips are generally planned pretty tightly, so if you do want to take time to see your friend, I would recommend planning some extra days the the beginning or end of the trip to spend time with them. :)
