frequently asked questions
What is the student/leader ratio?
Although we do not know the exact ratios until after registration closes, we like to have one leader for every eight students.
How will parents be contacted in case of an emergency?
Someone on staff will call the phone number you provided us when you registered your student.
Will there be a medical professional at W3?
Yes. We will have an EMT present during the main sessions. If your student is on medication, there will be a table at check-in for you to leave the medication with the small group leader, who will dispense it throughout the weekend.
How do I find out where my student will be during the weekend?
Your student’s group will be assigned a host home by the church before Walking Wisely. At that point, the small group leader should contact you with the necessary information.
How can I contact my student in case of an emergency?
The emergency contact information will be given to you at check-in on Friday night. You may also contact your student’s small group leader if needed.
What if my student has a food allergy?
Please indicate this in your student’s registration.
What if my student needs to be picked up early for a sporting event?
First, make sure the small group leader is aware of your plans. There will be a Time Away table at check-in on Friday night. You will need to fill out a form then.
Will my student need any spending money?
No. The cost of registration includes all food and the group activity (with the exception of paintball).
Where can parents hear the messages from Walking Wisely?
The main sessions will be streamed live on our Facebook page.
Where can I find the medical release information?
We are excited to say that we have added the medical insurance and information to the registration page. No additional forms are needed.
