COVID Safety The reality is that there are risks inherent with living in close quarters with up to 16 other people and attending a conference of 700 participants. We strongly recommend that all participants who are eligible for vaccination begin that process soon so that they receive their second dose by July 11th. We will be consulting with DCPC’s safety team on best practices while living together and adhering to all of Montreat’s safety protocols. Please read those protocols in their entirety:

Fee $450

Financial Assistance We do not want this fee to be an obstacle to anyone who wants to go. DCPC’s Journey Fund is in place to help pay for trips like this. Click here to find out more and apply to the Journey Fund for assistance.

Capacity We have room for 14 youth and 3 leaders.

Wait List If we hit capacity, we will create a wait-list and wait-listed youth will be next in line to take the place of any youth that have to cancel.

Next Steps Complete registration and pay $200 (balance due on June 15th). Click here to register.

Cancellations Refunds will only be possible if there is a student on the wait list.

Actual Costs The fee for Montreat ($450) is subsidized by the church to make it accessible to as many youth as would like to attend and we will never ask more than that fee. That said, we do want to make available the actual costs of the trip so that families who feel moved can have the opportunity to make an additional donation to help close the gap between the fees and the actual costs. Total costs for the conference, food, and lodging are approximately $525 (the number of youth paying for housing determines the actual cost per person), of which the church subsidizes $75. Again, the fee for the trip is $450 and no more, but any additional donations will be gratefully accepted.
