What do I need to bring to a Happening Weekend?
This Happening will be hosted by a church, in this case St. John’s Episcopal. To this Happening, you need to bring the following: casual and comfortable clothes for the weekend (you do NOT need a dressy outfit for Sunday), something to sleep on/in (air mattress [if you go this route, consider also providing an air pump], sleeping pad, sleeping bag, pillow[s], blanket[s], etc.) shower toiletries including a towel and shower shoes, and a water bottle.

During the weekend, we will ask you to turn in the following items, so as not to be distracted by the outside world: cell phone, iPod, iPad, laptops, watch, etc. Please do not bring valuables, tobacco, alcohol or nonprescription drugs, firearms, fireworks or weapons of any kind.

What if I cancel?
If you notify Happening leadership one week prior to Happening, we will refund your registration fee minus a $75.00 processing fee. If you do not call and cancel, there is no refund. There is a lot of preparation that goes into Happening. Please give prayerful consideration and talk to your child before signing them up.

What if I need financial aid?
