Family Events bookings
• Rainbows Weekend 28th April – 1st May 2017
• Family Weekend 30th June – 2nd July
• Family Camp 19th – 27th August 2017
There is one application form that can be used for any of these three events. Can you please ensure that you complete all applicable sections and return to the bookings coordinator by 31st March 2017.
We can accommodate approx. 60 people at Rainbows and June Weekend; 90 people at the Summer Camp. There is a need to balance continuity in the running of these 3 events with reaching out to new people who wish to attend. To achieve this a number of places are allocated to those with previous experience of family events and for the coordinators. Other places are reserved for new families, and are allocated by a 'picking out of the hat' system.
The deadline for receipt of the booking forms for these three events is the 31st March 2017.
Young Person's Retreat bookings
• 1st – 3rd December 2017
There are a maximum of 25 places on the Young Persons' retreat. These are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Young people who are between 13 and 19 years old at the time of the retreat can apply.
Creative Retreat bookings
• 22nd – 24th September 2017
The Creative Weekend 2017 theme is yet to be confirmed.
Most Family Events book up quickly and have a waiting list. Late cancellations can sadly lead to precious places being unfilled, since families on the waiting list often make other arrangements. Cancelling can also mean families who would have liked to participate cannot be given a place. Finally, unfilled places mean we loose income, while still being liable for costs.
In order to avoid cancellation please ensure that you are clear about your dates before you book.
Cancellations can be made by telephone or email to the Bookings Coordinator. Please note that cancellations can only be accepted from the family named on the booking form.
For any queries, contact Gina Willow, the bookings coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
Amaravati Family Events reserves the right to cancel any bookings that are deemed unsuitable or inappropriate.
