Registration Small Print:

EVERYONE is welcome to sign up for our Creative Weekend Retreats.  Our retreats are open to all types of creatives (papercrafters of all kinds, mixed media artists, sew/quilt fanatics, knitters, etc.)

Please let us know who you wish to room with when registering.  If you are alone, we will match you up with another attendee (or possibly  3!).  Please let us know if there is a group registering together so I know who to put in the same room/crop table.  There are rooms where we will have to book 4 to a room, so please know that we may need to add someone else to your room.

As we have to pay per person on the facility grounds, those who are registered for the retreat may be on the facility grounds.  The crop space is in the same location as the food service area.  Since COVID, we have decided that meals will continue to be eaten at your assigned table space. However, there is a lovely wrap-around deck where you could sit outside to eat if you wish and take in the waterfront view. If you are registering younger family members, please be advised and understand that all discussions are unfiltered.  Please make proper arrangements for the love, care and safety of anyone you registered under the legal age while attending our Creative Retreat weekend.   Camp Pringle is also a Christian family camp facility.  Therefore, NO alcohol is to be on premise (If alcohol is discovered, we will all be asked to leave and it will jeopardize our ability to book in the future).

If you have special needs for the weekend, please be sure to communicate that with us when registering.  Remember we want the weekend to be the best-  this time is FOR YOU!

Cancellation – If  WE cancel the retreat (although that is not our intention to do!), we would refund your money.  Unfortunately, we cannot refund the deposit.  Refunds for the amount (minus the deposit) will be refunded in full if 2 months notice is given.  If you cancel between 1-2 months before the retreat, half of your fee (minus the deposit) will be refunded.  No refunds will be given with less than a month notice given.  If you wish to find a replacement attendee to take your spot, we are happy for you to do that.  Any financial arrangement for your fee to be compensated is your responsibility (between you and the other person).

To Guarantee Your Spot – Your spot is secure once your non-refundable deposit is received.

Retreat Payments – You may choose to make one lump sum to pay your retreat fee, or pay on our payment plan schedule.  Payment plans will be due on the 15th of each month.  We are sorry, but we must stick to the same payment plan for everyone.  It is too difficult to keep track of numerous different payment schedules.

No Show – Please refer to cancellation policy.  For those who find themselves unable to attend due to extenuating circumstances (after the cancellation deadline), will receive all the regular handouts that the attendees receive.  If there is an attendee who is present and can take them to you, please arrange for that.  If not, it will be your responsibility to make arrangements for pick up within 1 month after the retreat.  If you would like the items shipped to you, you will be responsible for the exact shipping costs.

Accommodations – Camp Pringle is a Youth/Family Christian camp facility.  The accommodations are dorm-style.  Therefore, attendees will need to bring their own bedding (pillows/sheets/blankets).  There is a mattress.   This is NOT a luxury resort.

On-site Store – We will bring our mobile store to the retreat.  If you have special product requests, please contact Stacey well in advance.  Payment for purchases can be made by MasterCard, VISA, Debit tap or chip, as well as cash.  E-transfer can also be arranged.
