Spring Retreat FAQs

You have questions. We have answers.

What's included in the $100 cost?

Spring Retreat is a conference-style retreat. Therefore, all meals and transportation are not included your $100 Spring Retreat registration cost. When we send pre-retreat communication, you will receive a list of restaurants and grocery stores near the resort so you can plan meals/expenses for the weekend.

When will I know who is in my house/room?

The Well Staff team will be finalizing all housing/room assignments up until Spring Retreat. We will have your roommates ready for you upon check in on Friday!

Where do I check-in when I get to Sandestin Resort?

You will go to Linkside Exhibit Hall (LEH) to check-in with The Well Staff team. You will not go to the resort's front desk (spoiler: we have your keys, not them!). Please check your email the week of Spring Retreat for information of how to get to LEH.

When do I check-in, and what if I can't make the check-in time?

You will receive the Spring Retreat schedule in an email the week of Spring Retreat which will include the check-in time frame. If you are unable to check-in before the Friday night session, we will have a 30-minute check-in period immediately following the Friday session. We will not have early check-in so please plan to arrive at the time check-in starts (conveniently, you can wait on the beach).

Do I need to bring bedding, a pillow, or bath towels?

No. The homes/rooms will have bedding and towels provided. We encourage you to bring a sleeping bag or air mattress as sometimes they come in handy during the weekend!

Something came up, and I can no longer go to Spring Retreat. Can I get a refund?

At the time of registration, there is a non-refundable $50 deposit. Partial refunds are available through Sunday, March 31. On/After Monday, April 1, we are unable to provide any refunds and any remaining balances will be still be due.

I have to come late / leave early from Spring Retreat. Can I still come, and do I have to pay the full price?

We would love for you to still join us even if your time is cut short. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer reduced rates based on arrival/departure times.

I want to go to Spring Retreat, but I don't have a car.

Being car-less is no reason to miss out on Spring Retreat. When you fill out your registration form, there will be a question asking if you need a ride. Check "yes" and then save the date for our Carpool Meeting that will immediately follow The Well on Wednesday, April 3.
