Frequently asked questions
Q. What is included in registration?
A. Registration for the Winter Retreat includes: transportation to/from the retreat, lodging for the entire weekend, meals, a Winter Retreat student booklet and a Winter Retreat 2019 shirt.
Q. How do you get there?
A. Transportation is included! Students arrive for Check-In on Friday, January 18th by 5:30pm and we leave from Calvary Church around 6:30pm. Students will ride together with their Student Group on a coach bus, with their luggage loaded on the bottom of the bus. We will return to Calvary Church on Sunday, January 20 around 2:00pm for our Post-Retreat Celebration with all of Calvary Church!
Q. Where does everyone stay?
A. Students and leaders are housed in duplex cabins that are carpeted and heated, with about 12 bunks in each side of the cabin, including a pillow and blanket for each bunk. Some groups that are larger than 12 students and leaders will receive extra mattresses for the floor. There is a bathroom with 2 showers, 3 toilets and 2 sinks in each side. You will need to bring bedding, towels, toiletries, etc. Each Student Group is assigned to their own cabin.
Q. Will the students get any sleep?
A. It's our goal that all students will be alert each day to hear the main speaker! Lights out is typically around midnight, so it is up to the leaders to make sure that their group is getting some much needed rest each night.
Q. Is there any free time?
A. Yes! Saturday afternoon is considered "Free Time" and there are lots of activities for students to enjoy! There is an indoor climbing wall, outdoor climbing wall, flag football, zip line, giant swing, pool & table games in the cafe, soccer and basketball in the gym, and a great outdoor ropes course.
Q. Should we send any money?
A. Spending money is optional. There is a snack shop in Frog Spit Cafe that will be open during Free Time where students can purchase ice cream, soft drinks, and snacks.
