Frequently Asked Questions
1) If I can’t come to the entire conference can I come to part of it? What is the cost if I do that?
Yes, you can come to part of the retreat. The broken down cost for the retreat is $15 per meeting, $25 per night, and $5 per meal. If you are not attending the entire conference, there is no freshman discount, but the early registration discount is $5. Your base cost must exceed $45 for the discount to apply.

2) What should I bring to the conference?
You should bring casual clothing, a coat, any toiletries you need, a notebook, a pen, a Bible, clothing for basketball if you want, games, anything you might need for the talent show if you are performing, and a camera.

3) What is covered in my registration costs?
Your registration covers the entire program, two nights at the hotel, all three meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. It does not cover any travel costs (if you are riding with someone you should pitch in for gas). In the past most students who drove stopped for dinner on the way there and lunch on the way back. It also does not cover the cost of late night trips to a local restaurant.

4) Do I want to participate in the talent show?
Yes.

5) Can high school students attend?
We do allow mature high school seniors to attend if they are interested, but keep in mind that it is a conference for college students. Also, if you’re in high school, you probably need to fill out a general-liability-release-under-18 and bring it to the conference.
