MIS AMIGOS RETREAT WEEKEND 2020
Registration Deadline Aug. 25, 2019
Dear LAPA Families and Alumni:
Every family who wants to participate must register for a spot. There is a $75 non-refundable registration fee for each family who will attend. You must be a LAPA-NCR member to register. The deadline is August 25, 2019 at 5PM.
EVENT INFORMATION - JULY 10-12, 2020
The retreat will be at the Pearlstone Center just north of Reisterstown, MD. For those who did not attend this year, the 180-acre campus is a mix of fields and forests, including a working farm right next to the lodging. There is a pool complex and the grounds are set up for soccer and volleyball and evening campfires. Indoors there are facilities for art workshops and discussions about parenting, adoption and Latin America. We can pay extra for things like pond access for fishing, kayaking and paddleboats.
Future payments will cover two nights lodging (hotel style, dorms or cabins), six meals (Friday dinner through Sunday lunch) and snacks, as well as additional programming. Depending upon final programming, the cost will be roughly $300-per person plus tax for the three-day weekend. Optional: the ropes course will likely be an additional $20-$25 fee paid later for anyone who wants to do that Friday afternoon.
Payment Schedule: 50% payment will be due January 15, and then a final 50% payment due March 15 so that we can meet Pearlstone’s payment deadlines for LAPA. Because we will have a signed contract with Pearlstone that we have to pay regardless, unfortunately these fees are non-refundable. If you are unable to attend, you can try to find another family who would like to take your place. Note that this registration fee will be used to cover the cost of the pond, any extra pool time, etc. and ultimately will also cover our insurance policy for the weekend.
Families who want to attend but who cannot afford the whole weekend cost, please contact either of the Co-Presidents (or others in LAPA leadership) before Aug 25th about financial assistance.
