What should I bring?

Our team will send out a packing list a few weeks out before the event to your email. If you have any specific questions please feel free to email our team at

What adults will be going?

We will be bringing an entire team of pastors, church staff, and volunteer small group leaders who have been trained and background checked. We always try and bring about 1 adult for every 4-5 students.

How will we be getting there?

Our team will be contracting Rocky Top Tours for all of our transportation. Our bus drivers are trained, licensed, and insured by their company.

What will housing be like on this event?

We will be staying with Eagle Rock Retreat Center. The retreat center will be hosting us in their bunk houses that have a separate bed for each student and private bathrooms and showers.

What will we be eating?

Eagle Rock will be accommodating all meals for the retreat with the exception of our Saturday night. Foothills Church will be providing our last meal. But in all situations we make sure to provide meals that everyone likes. As always we do encourage students to bring snacks and let us know if they have any major allergy restrictions so we can do our best to accommodate.

Will there be scholarships?

Unfortunately, Foothills Church cannot provide scholarships. But, it is so easy to raise the money. If you need help with ideas on fundraising email us at

What are you doing in regards to COVID-19 for this event?

Before allowing students to attend our event we will be performing a health screening. If a student has a fever of 100 or above, a confirmed positive COVID case in their household, or is currently sick, then we will ask them not to attend. If a student cannot attend, we can will transfer their registration to next year or allow the registration to be gifted to another student who cannot afford the event. If a student becomes ill while in attendance, we will isolate the student and you will be required to pick them up immediately. In regards to other pre-cautions, we will be asking students to wear masks on the busses and other select areas where social distancing is not easy. Our bunks house will also be socially distant for sleeping arrangements and most activities will take place outside.

Are there refunds for this event?

Once you register, you are responsible to pay for the entirety of the balance. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds or allow any cancellations this year unless the event is cancelled all together. You may transfer your spot to someone else with the approval of Foothills Church.
