Frequently Asked Questions...
Who can attend?
Ladies of all ages are welcome! This year we will be partnering with our high school and junior high ministries to include young ladies. If you are under 18, you have two options for rooming and registering (Please note that ladies under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult).
When and where do I check-in for the conference?
We welcome you to check-in on Friday beginning at 3:30 pm in the Hospitality Room (near the main lobby/dining room). Check-in will be open before and after the session on Friday if you are unable to arrive earlier. Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm in the dining hall. The first session begins at 7:30 pm in the Sanctuary by the Lake. The conference concludes with our last session around noon on Sunday. Sunday lunch will not be provided.
What meals are provided?
The retreat kicks off with dinner the first night, and includes breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday. We love our conference center chefs and staff! They work so hard to make everything delicious and special. All meals are served family style.
I'm gluten-free. What can I eat?
Our current menu is designed with you in mind and is largely gluten and nut free, with little dairy. We like to say it is "gluten-friendly" because we serve lots of salads and usually a main protein without gluten added. However, we cannot guarantee that it is completely gluten free. If you need a vegetarian meal, we would be happy to accommodate you. Please let us know when you register and we will make the dining room staff aware of your needs.
Will I be rooming with other ladies?
Yes. Our lodges have rooms that sleep 6 ladies. We do our best to accommodate the requests for roommates made at the time of registration. It really helps our registrar if each roommate request matches up with one another. If the requests don't match, we will accommodate at least one request. We put a lot of time and prayer into assigning rooms, so thanks for being gracious. If you need a 2-person room, we would encourage you to register for Retreat and meals only option, and secure your own hotel accommodations nearby.
Can I bring my baby?
Nursing moms, you are welcome to come with your baby if you are able to fill a room with 4-5 other ladies or moms who are willing to room with an infant. There is no childcare provided. We would just ask that you please be sensitive to those around you and sit toward the back in case you need to leave to quiet your baby. If you need a 2-person room, we would encourage you to register with the Retreat and meals only option, and secure your own hotel accommodations nearby.
Where can I park?
Parking is free in the lots surrounding the conference center. There is parking near your lodge as well as the auditorium where we meet for the main sessions.
Will I have to walk far around the campus?
The Murrieta Hot Springs Conference Center is located on sprawling grounds, but don't worry, we've got you covered! If you need any assistance getting from your lodge to the dining hall or meeting auditorium, there are helpful staff members with carts available to transport you wherever you need to go. Just dial zero on your lobby phone and ask.
I have some physical limitations.
We would be happy to accommodate you as best we are able. If you need assistance getting around the campus, just pick up a phone in your lodge and we will have cheerful staff member to pick you up in a cart.
