Drop off: Friday, September 18 between 4:00-4:30 pm
We will be meeting up at the River Parking Lot (right at the end of the park, next to the Logger's Revenge ride) during this time to gather our group for registration. We will be at the far end of the parking lot. You will be able to pull into this paid parking lot for free, just let them know you are dropping off your kid for the Boardwalk Blitz.
Pick-up: Saturday, September 19 between 4:00-4:30 pm
We will be gathered at the River Parking Lot (same place as drop-off) If you would like to join your kid for the remainder of the day you are welcome to do so as they will have a wristband that is good for the whole day.
What to pack?
Please visit the Boardwalk Blitz website at www.beachboardwalk.com/blitz and click on "planning list" for a full list of recommended items to pack. We will be providing tents for the kids, so just make sure they have a soft cushion to sleep on and warm sleeping bag as we will be camping on cement. PLEASE make sure your middle schooler has ample warm clothes to wear!! It does get pretty chilly in the evenings that close to the beach! If you own a tent and would like to let us borrow it, please reply to this email and let me know how many it can sleep!
The registration cost included dinner on Friday night as well as breakfast on Saturday. Please send your kid with money to purchase lunch on Saturday. It would also be helpful to add a water bottle and a few snacks for them.
Who should I contact?
Dawn Jackson (Youth Ministries Director) will have her cell phone with her at ALL times so please feel free to call or text at any time regarding your child.
How many leaders will be coming and who will be directly overseeing my kid?
We have a wonderful group of leaders who serve with the Middle School and High School ministries. As of right now, we have 32 students signed up and 8 youth leaders attending. Each leader has been interviewed and background checked to ensure the safety of your kid. Each leader will be "in charge" of the kids that are in their tent for the duration of the Blitz. For much of the Blitz we will be together as a whole group.
Who is permitted to enter the event? ONLY registered kids and adults will be allowed to enter the Boardwalk. Unregistered parents/ guardians will not be permitted to enter the park until it is open to the public on Saturday at 11 am. This is to ensure the safety of your child. If you need to contact your child at any time during the event, please call Dawn.
What else can I do to prepare?
The Boardwalk Beach Blitz aims to bring together Middle School and High School ministries-away from everyday influences and distractions- for a chance to encounter God and fellowship with other teens from all over Northern California. We'd love for you to pray that each student would strengthen their relationship with Jesus and grow in community during this time!
We look forward to seeing you there!
