You have questions. We have answers.
Spring Retreat is a conference-style retreat. Therefore, all meals and transportation are not included your $100 Spring Retreat registration cost. When we send pre-retreat communication, you will receive a list of restaurants and grocery stores near the resort so you can plan meals/expenses for the weekend.
The Well Staff team will be finalizing all housing/room assignments up until Spring Retreat. We will have your roommates ready for you upon check in on Friday!
You will go to Linkside Exhibit Hall (LEH) to check-in with The Well Staff team. You will not go to the resort's front desk (spoiler: we have your keys, not them!). Please check your email the week of Spring Retreat for information of how to get to LEH.
You will receive the Spring Retreat schedule in an email the week of Spring Retreat which will include the check-in time frame. If you are unable to check-in before the Friday night session, we will have a 30-minute check-in period immediately following the Friday session. We will not have early check-in so please plan to arrive at the time check-in starts (conveniently, you can wait on the beach).
No. The homes/rooms will have bedding and towels provided. We encourage you to bring a sleeping bag or air mattress as sometimes they come in handy during the weekend!

Late Evening :: Free Time

At the time of registration, there is a non-refundable $50 deposit. Partial refunds are available through Sunday, March 31. On/After Monday, April 1, we are unable to provide any refunds and any remaining balances will be still be due.
We would love for you to still join us even if your time is cut short. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer reduced rates based on arrival/departure times.
Being car-less is no reason to miss out on Spring Retreat. When you fill out your registration form, there will be a question asking if you need a ride. Check "yes" and then save the date for our Carpool Meeting that will immediately follow The Well on Wednesday, April 3.
