Will you have a children's program?

An amazing children’s program will be offered for 1 y/o – graduating 5th graders and will allow parents to check in their children before each teaching session. The children 3 y/o – 5th will have scheduled teaching and worship time, crafts, snacks and games/recreational activities. This program is often the most memorable highlight for the children attending the retreat!

Will you have a youth program?

This year, we won’t be having a separate youth program. Instead, the youth students will get to join the rest of the church in the main sessions! 6th-10th grader will still be in youth-specific small groups, while 11th and 12th graders will be incorporated into the adult small groups.

I have physical limitations that require housing accommodations and/or prevent me from participating in certain activities. What should I do?

We would love for you to be involved in every part of retreat and would like to hear how we can make accommodations for you. In your registration, please indicate your specific needs and we’ll reach out to you for clarification if necessary.

Can we attend retreat part time?

We would love for everyone to be with us for the whole length of the weekend. We understand that there some of you have unique circumstances, so if there is a need to come late or leave early, please let us know in your registration. Please note that we cannot provide discounts for part time attendance.

Can I choose my roommates?

If you’d like to request specific roommates, we suggest that you talk amongst your friends and confirm with each other your housing type and preferences. Please note that we will try our best to match groups, but we cannot guarantee that your requests will be fulfilled. Families will be assumed to be living together, unless otherwise noted.

What kind of free time activities will there be?

While our free time activities have not been determined yet, we’ll be sure to have a variety of activities available to a range of interests!

I forgot to sign up! Can I register late?

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate for late registrations. Final names and numbers will be sent to Forest Home upon the close of registration.
