Registration Process for Summer Trips

Fall Registration Period:
September 10, 2018 to October 15, 2018

• Only active participants or church members may register during the Fall Registration Period.
• This is not first-come, first-served. All who register online between these dates will have equal opportunity of securing a spot.
• Adults will be invited to participate as summer trip leaders during this period.
• The number of spots confirmed will be dependent upon the availability of registrations by the particular ministry site, transportation availability, and the size of the leadership team.

What happens if there are more registrants than available spots
on a particular trip? Preference will be given in the following order: students who have a family member serving in a leadership role on the trip, students in their last year of eligibility for a particular trip, students who are regularly active in the life of WMPC, and then all others. Within those groups, a random drawing process will be utilized. For the Haiti Mission Trips, preference will be given first to those who attended the 2018 Haiti Mission Trip. 

Confirmation emails will be sent October 22, 2018.

The registrant has 10 working days (Friday, November 2, 2018) to submit payment and all appropriate paperwork. Failure to do so will result in loss of a spot and the registrant will have to re-register in the winter period.

Winter Registration Period:
January. 8, 2019 to February 4, 2019

• Any youth may register during the winter registration period with advance approval from the youth staff trip leader.
• There is no guarantee that all trips will have spots available during this registration period.
• Adults will be invited to participate as summer trip leaders during this period.
• Order of preference will be the same as the Fall Registration Period.

Confirmation emails will be sent February 11, 2019.

Exception: Montreat Worship & Music and Summer in the City will not follow this process.
