We are going to the King of the Mountain Lodge!  Your rooms have been assigned in advance.  It’s going to be so fun to all be together again!  Some folks may be on an air mattress or futon, so please bring your own pillow!

Free Time

For those of you who have been to Resurrection before, we are doing free time a little differently.  You will have two options on Saturday between the second session and dinner time.  They are:

  1. Return to the cabin.
  2. Go to The Island.
  3. Go to the Tanger Outlets.

You will sign up for which activity you would like to be apart of on Friday before bed.  I have provided links to each place to help you make your decision.  Remember, the Island & Outlets most likely require extra money.


We will talk about these more on Friday, but please keep these guidelines in mind for the weekend.

  • You will travel in the same van all weekend.  No switching around. (This excludes travel to and from free time, which might require a shift due to which activity you choose.)
  • The chaperone who checks your room at night will also be your chaperones in the Convention Center.
  • You must stay in groups of 3 at all times.  If I see you walking alone at any time, you will have to go home.  I know this sounds harsh, but we have to remain safe and remain together.
  • There is a Starbucks kiosk at the Convention Center.  We will not be using it.  The lines are too long and you miss part of the session when you get in line.  There will be coffee at the cabin if you are wanting some.
  • Your rooms in the cabin will be assigned.
  • There is a movie room in the cabin.  You can bring movies to watch remembering:
    • they must be G or PG rated
    • lights out still means lights out – even if it isn’t done
    • movies will be voted on by the majority planning to watch – democracy, people
