Frequently Asked Questions
How can I help with Discovery Weekend?
We have three major ways you can help with Discovery. Firstly, check out the our opportunities for roles we need filled over the weekend. Most of them are only an hour commitment. Secondly, you can donate to the Discovery Weekend general fund or donate a Discovery scholarship. Lastly, invite friends to Discovery. Text them, call them, invite them in person! Invite friends to our Facebook event and share our content on social media. You can reach people in a way that we can’t!
What’s the deal with phones?
Middle schoolers will leave their phones at home during the weekend in order to eliminate that distraction. Trust us, they won’t miss them! Adults will have their phones if your student should ever need to reach you. High schoolers are permitted to have their phones, but if misused, they will be taken by their Discovery Group Leader.
I can’t be there the whole time. Who do I tell?
Let us know on your registration. If you found out after registration, no sweat! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, high schoolers are only permitted one check out.
