  • How do you ensure my student’s safety?
    • We are bringing our own security and medical teams that will be present throughout the entire weekend at Fall Retreat. We also have access to rapid COVID-19 tests, urgent cares, and hospitals within a short distance.
    • Please note that we cannot hold on to or dispense the prescriptions that your student brings. We ask that they keep the medication with them and take it as prescribed. Medications must be in their original packaging. Please prepare them ahead of time to take their own medications. A trained medical volunteer will be present at all times during Fall Retreat to assist with general medical needs and emergencies.
    • What COVID-19 precautions might be part of my student’s time at Fall Retreat?
      • We will pay close attention to any local or state guidelines as we approach Fall Retreat, and notify you of any changes. At this time masks will be needed only in the wellness center and you will be asked screening questions at check-in.
    • What happens if someone gets sick at Fall Retreat? Will everyone have to go home?
      • We anticipate that the pre-retreat information, precautions, proactive mitigation measures, and operational changes we are implementing while students are onsite will allow all students, volunteers, and staff to stay for the entire length of the Fall Retreat event. However, if a student, volunteer, or staff member presents with COVID-19 symptoms during Fall Retreat, that person, and all students and staff in their Group, may be isolated and/or sent home. We will notify you and ask permission to test if symptoms or exposure occurs.
  • What does my student need to bring?

    • 3 sets of clothes (including an outfit that can get messy/ruined!)
    • Sleeping bag & pillow
    • Toiletries
    • Towel
    • Bible & pen
    • Flashlight (for real! the camp gets really dark!)
    • Spending money for the camp store & snack shop
  • Can my student bring their cell phone?

    We discourage students from bringing their cell phones to Fall Retreat as it is a great time to “unplug.” However, the final decision lies with the parent/guardian. If you believe that your student is capable of being responsible with their device, they may use it at appropriate times (for example: taking pictures, free time, Bible reading). We believe that it is important for students to learn how to appropriately engage with their devices, and our leaders aim to help guide our students to learn how to do so; however, if cell phones are used inappropriately, they may be confiscated. All confiscated devices will be returned at the end of the weekend.
