These group leaders will be responsible for keeping track of their group throughout the trip. Additional adult leaders will also be at Beach Rally to provide overall supervision.
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.
How will the group be traveling to Beach Rally?

What all does the registration cost cover?
The registration cost includes transportation, housing, activities and all meals while at Beach Rally.
How much spending money will my student need?
Students will need money for two on-the-road meals: one meal on the way to Beach Rally and one meal on the way home from Beach Rally. Students will also have the opportunity to buy snacks and Beach Rally merchandise during the trip. Whatever amount of cash you allow your student to bring is up to you.
How are rooming assignments determined?
Rooming assignments are determined by the information collected during registration. We will make rooming assignments according to grade, gender and school. Our goal is to ensure each student is in a room with someone they know. Please let us know if your student is inviting a friend who does not attend Venture Church so we can place them together.
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 introduce an unchurched student to the idea that church can be fun and exciting.
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 on Friday, July 20. We expect to return to The Lincoln Road Campus on Monday, July 23. Students are encouraged to contact their parent/guardian when we are approximately one hour from arrival. We will also give travel updates on our Venture Students Facebook page and Venture Students Instagram account.
