Friday, July 28 - Monday, July 31

3. Will there be adult supervision?

We will have all types of adult supervision. At Beach Rally, the students will be divided into small groups of around ten. Each group will have 1-2 college-aged/adult leaders. These group leaders will keep track of their group throughout the entire trip. We will also have additional adult leadership to help supervise Beach Rally.

4. Where in Panama City is it taking place?

We will be staying at Laguna Beach Christian Retreat. This is a private retreat center that has a private, access only beach.

5. How will the group be traveling to Beach Rally?

We will be traveling via charter busses with professional drivers. Our top priority is the safety of the students.

6. What all does the registration cost cover?

The registration cost includes transportation, housing, activities and all meals.

7. How much spending money will my student need?

Your student could come to Beach Rally with $0 and be perfectly fine. Everything is provided. However, during Beach Rally the students will have opportunities to buy ice cream, snow cones and Beach Rally merchandise. Whatever amount of cash you allow your student to bring is up to you.

8. How are rooming assignments determined?

Rooming assignments are determined through the information that is collected through registration. We will room students according to grade, gender and school. Our goal is to make sure each student is in a room with someone they know. Please let us know if your student is inviting a friend that does not attend Venture Church so we can place them together.

9. Can my student bring a friend who does not attend Venture Church?

Yes! This is highly encouraged. Our desire is to be a church for the unchurched. We see Beach Rally as an incredible opportunity to get a student involved who isn't involved at a church.

10. What do students need to bring to Beach Rally?

Please download the packing list here.

11. When do students depart and return from Beach Rally?

Students from all campuses will meet at The Lincoln Road Campus for departure and arrival. Beach Rally check-in will be at The Lincoln Road Campus at 7:30 a.m. on Friday, July 28.
