These courses are FREE with enrollment in a full-week course, but you must register to attend.
IMPORTANT NOTE - IF you are flying in from out of town and plan on using the MARS transportation service to and from the airport, you will not arrive at the hotel in time to avail yourself of these programs. Our shuttle service begins pickups at approximately 1 pm, endeavors to pick up all travelers by 2 pm, to arrive at the hotel in time for check-in, which is approx 4 pm.


Be advised MARS has no control over rooms outside of our week-long block, and the school will not be responsible, nor coordinate, any stay before Sunday, or past Thursday night (Friday morning).

HOWEVER
We have great news!
If you are interested in coming in the day before so you are prepared for first thing on Sunday, MARS has worked with our fabulous hotel, Hyatt Place, Dewey Beach. to offer you a special deal.
You can now book your own "shoulder dates" directly by clicking HERE to access "our area" on their website (your discount will be factored in at checkout).

If this link gets corrupted, you can
  1. go directly to HYATT PLACE DEWEY BEACH website
  2. Click the yellow BOOK NOW button
  3. then in the pulldown menu choose "corporate or group code" use code G-MARS

BOOKING NOTES -
  • choose ONLY the extra date you want to stay (make sure you do not include S-Th of the schoolweek)
  • If you are registered with the school as a double occupancy, choose "one room, 2 guests". This may provide the possibility of staying in that same room all week. While the school cannot guarantee, the hotel will do their best to make this happen.
  • If you are registered with the school as a single room, choose "one room, 1 guest". This may provide the possibility of staying in that same room all week. While the school cannot guarantee, the hotel will do their best to make this happen.

Book EARLY for best chance at getting a room.
Be advised, rooms for shoulder dates, before or after our event, are based on availability at the time of booking, are at the sole discretion of the hotel, and may not be available.
If you are lucky enough to score a room, it is at the hotel's discretion of placement, and, as mentioned, may not be the same room you are assigned during the MARS week.
