How do I register?
Once the registration for 2023 opens mid-September, scroll down and register online, or you can print, complete, and send the registration form to Laurelville Retreat Center at 941 Laurelville Ln., Mt. Pleasant, PA 15666, or call 724.423.2056 to register by phone during office hours. Payment in full is required with each registration (your $50 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit is included in the registration cost). Please be sure to indicate any special dietary needs you might have so we can make necessary accommodations.
Many congregations choose to register their participants together and we encourage you to do this. Please note however that we must receive individual names, contact information, and payment in order to hold your spots. Whenever sending payment, please clearly indicate the names of the congregation and participants so that we can divide the payment accordingly.
Note: Please contact us at 724-423-2056 if you experience any issues with online registration.
What if I must cancel after I have registered?
Life happens, weather happens. We get it. Your payment is refundable until two weeks prior to the event (minus a $50 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit). While we cannot issue refunds after the two-week deadline, you may transfer the balance of your registration payment to a participant coming in your place or we can roll your money into the next year (minus the $50 non-transferable deposit).
