Due to increased attendance at recent retreats and space limitations, at this point in time, we only need 4 chaperones. Priority is given to all youth who wish to attend and the minimum number of chaperones necessary to ensure that we have a safe weekend. The number of chaperones over our past few events has overwhelmed our participants, so this needs to be addressed in such a manner. If participants need to be driven to the event, I ask that parishes limit the number of adult chaperones staying the weekend to only 1 adult per parish.
The number of chaperones for this retreat will be strictly aligned with the Diocesan Policy of having 1 chaperone for every 6 participants (ex: 25 participants, only 4 chaperones).
Chaperones will be selected on a first come, first served basis. Only 1 chaperone per parish.
If any additional adults/clergy (non-chaperones) arrive unannounced WITHOUT having registered with the intention of staying for the weekend OR only for a day, the venue WILL NOT allow this – the Diocese must pay for all expenses upfront prior to the event.
Given that we are working with a new venue, please be respectful of the guidelines set forth, particularly the registration deadline of November 8th. Our Diocese must provide an initial headcount two weeks in advance, so please do not delay.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding this year's retreat, please contact our Department Chairperson, Danielle Geeza, via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
