Beach Retreat: Frequently Asked Questions

  • “How do I sign-up my student?”

    • Sign-up by clicking here (beginning 9/16 @ 11am)! You can also bring in cash or a check ($80) on a Sunday morning and turn it in to Zack or Lexie.

  • “How will transportation work?”

    • Everyone is responsible for their own transportation on this trip. Since Doheny is only a short drive away, we decided to save on transportation costs to keep the weekend more affordable. We are asking that you drive your students or find another family to carpool with. If you are not able to find transportation for your student, we may be able to help you find another option. If you need assistance, please email Zack.

  • “When do they need to be dropped off on Friday and picked up on Sunday”

    • Friday: 5pm; Sunday: 930am sharp

  • “My student can only be there for part of the weekend - is that okay?”

    • While we believe students will get the most out of this experience by being there the whole time, parents needing to pick-up their kid early/drop them off later will be able to do so. However, please contact Zack ahead of time to let him know your plans.

  • “What type of adult supervision will there be?”

    • In addition to a number of TerraNova staff and pastors who will be leading discussions and programming, eight of our HSM Adult Leaders will be camping with our students.

  • “What’s the sleeping situation going to be like?”

    • Males and females will sleep in separate tents, supervised by our HSM Adult Leaders.

  • “What if my student doesn’t have a tent?”

    • That’s okay! There will be a spot for him/her. Note: If you have a tent that you are willing to let our group use, please email Zack.

  • “What do they need to pack?”

    • Bible, Journal, Pen, Toiletries, Sleeping bag, Towels, Swim gear (you never know in SoCal, it might still be warm enough to get in the ocean in November), Warm clothes for night time

  • “Will there still be an 11am HSM service on Sunday?”

    • Yes! We’ll be back at The Hub, ready to wrap-up our incredible weekend with our HSM service.

  • “Is financial assistance available?”

    • There is not. However, if money is the only thing holding your student back from attending, please reach out to Zack and we’ll come up with a creative solution.
