What you're probably curious about!


Where do I stay?

You will be staying in the Hunters Ridge Apartments (EC Housing) with your EC host! The EC students all live in the same apartment building - so all the EC apartments are just a couple steps away from one another! 

What should I bring?

Bring a Bible, notebook, pen/pencil, overnight clothes, warm outdoor clothes (coat, mittens, boots), and cash for late night food runs (if you'd like!)

How much is registration?

Registration is $45

What does registration include?

That $45 includes 3 meals, games, fun stuff, etc.

Do I need a car?

Nope! Only if you need to drive yourself to the Church, otherwise your EC host will drive you around!

How many people usually attend?

Usually, we have 80-90 total students at UpClose Weekend. It is a full, exciting weekend where you will meet many others who are in the same season of life as you, looking to grow spiritually. 

What if I can only make it to part of the weekend?

Sometimes we have students who really want to attend UpClose, but they have previous commitments for a couple of hours over the weekend. We think UpClose is worth coming to, even if you miss a couple hours of it! We encourage you to register and just email us (ericagiesow@valleyfamilychurch.org) to let us know of any potential scheduling conflicts.
