Rally Your Church & Friends
Get Your Church Behind You… Accountability is good! If you are going as a church group, we assume your pastor is already in agreement with the trip. Why not take a Sunday night or part of a Sunday Morning, with their permission, and talk about the Festival. You could show some pictures and part of the promotional video, and use the opportunity to get the congregation behind you in prayer. You never know, it may spark a few more folks to want to join you and it will open the door for more people to come to Jesus. After the Festival, get permission to share all God did while you were gone. It will thrill everyone and bring excitement to the church!
You must be 18 or over to check in the festival. Anyone under the age of 18 must be with a parent or a guardian or youth pastor.

The festival is an outdoor event and everyone should come with some type of shelter in case of rain. Showers and port-a-johns are provided. There are no individual electric or water hookups for campers.
A parking space is available for you to park your cars, buses, and/or recreational vehicles. Please follow the instructions of the parking attendants by parking where they direct you. Most of those camping may park their vehicles at their campsites (Camping Area “A”). There are certain areas (Camping Area “B”) due to terrain where you will have to park in one area and camp in another. Staff will help those staying in Camping Area B to get their camping gear from their vehicle to campsite. You can walk anywhere on the ground so please drive your car only when entering or exiting the grounds.
Campfires are NOT ALLOWED at the campsites due to the geographic location of the festival grounds. The grounds are in a valley and smoke from the campfires will lay low in the valley and make it difficult to breathe. There will be a bon fire at the top of a hill for everyone to enjoy, started, and controlled by festival staff on Friday and Saturday night.
Campers Used Water
There is a 300 gallon water tank designated for those who are camping at the festival. This tank will be located close to one of our water sources on the outer edge of our main camping field. This will be a water dumping station for your used water at your camping site. By request of Floyd County the Health Department regulations, we are NOT ALLOWED to pour used water on the ground.
Lost children should be taken to the first aid station, front gate or Replenish Store so management can find their parents or guardians.

Never let a child sleep on the ground while music groups are on stage…especially at night! The creek that runs through the property is deep in some places.
Children can fall in and drown. Please choose shallow areas if your child wants to play in the creek. Parents must stay with their children while playing in the creek.

Things To Consider When Coming As A Group
- It’s a pretty monumental task to prepare for a massive outing with a group. If you keep your list year to year, you can add to, take away and continue to tweak it each year, but it will always give you a head start on your preparation for the next year.
- Many groups divide their group into family or small groups of 4 – 6 people and require that each group contribute for instance: two packs of hot dogs, two packs of rolls, one big pack of toilet paper, a few rolls of paper towels, one bag of fruit, one breakfast ‘treat’ like donuts, pop tarts etc. and one bag of snack food (chips, pretzels etc.). When you bring all the food items together, there is some- thing you know that you enjoy and you can share yours with others in the larger group.
- It’s also a good idea to have an ice contribution can. Take an old coffee can, and cover it and indicate it is for contributions to purchase ice. That way, everyone gets in on the expense.
- It may be a good thing, depending on the size of your group, to bring one person Certified in CPR and First Aid along with you. We are not expecting anything to happen, but in a massive group of thousands, anyone who is Certified, may be a real blessing to someone in need.
- One thing some deem essential as a group is a pre-set list of rules, or do’s and don’ts that you can institute at your campsite. This is especially essential to or just be sure each ‘rule’ is explained and is clearly understood before clarification concerning conduct etc. Hey, the Bible is our guidebook or rulebook, as well as God’s word. Rules are good. Some of the things you may want to include in your ‘do’s and don’ts’ may include: your personal group dress code, conduct between guys and girls at the campsite, campers responsibilities (everyone should have a job!), campsite curfews, establishment of eating times and devotions times, etc.
- Obviously, before you come to Replenish it would be great to meet with your group and establish all your hopes and parameters concerning the trip. You will want everyone to have a great time, and if all the expectations of your group are clearly stated, everyone is thinking alike and will know what to expect and what is expected of them.
