Who can attend?

 Adventure Nauvoo is for youth in the Young Men’s or Young Women’s programs of the Arlington TX Stake who will be 14 or older. Youth who graduate from high school in 2017 may attend.  

How were adult and youth leaders selected?

All adult leaders will be prayerfully selected and invited to come under the direction of the Stake Presidency.

 

Can I bring non-member or a friend from another stake?

Due to the logistics and expense associated with the Nauvoo trip, participants who are not members of the Arlington TX Stake will not be able to attend.

 

Can parents or other family members attend?

Should your family choose to come to Nauvoo while we are there, they should not expect to participate in activities planned for you, tag along on the planned itinerary, or keep you from these events.   Family attendance may distract you from the full life changing, spiritual experience that High Adventure Nauvoo will provide.  Please plan your family vacations at a different time.

 

Can I meet up with my family at the end of the Nauvoo Trip to leave on our family vacation?

Activities during the travel to and from Nauvoo are part of the trip, and we encourage you to participate.  However, it would be possible to meet up with your family before the group leaves Nauvoo. Advance arrangements with stake leaders will be necessary.

 

If I have a conflict, can I come for just part of the time in Nauvoo?

We would ask you to commit to attending the entire Nauvoo Trip due to the complexity of making arrangements, providing accommodations, and ensuring for the safety of over 120 youth. Also, great activities are planned for each day, which you won’t want to miss!​

What if someone (who meets requirements to participate) moves into our stake after the registration deadline?

It will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Participation will depend on availability.

 

Do I need to bring money?               

You may bring some spending money for snacks and souvenirs.

 

Will there be bathrooms on the buses?

Yes, and we will stop occasionally for bathroom breaks.

 

Will the cabins be air-conditioned?               

Yes!

 

Can we bring snacks on the bus?                   

You may bring WATER and snacks.

Can I bring electronic devices?

Cell phones are permitted as long as they are used in an appropriate manner and at appropriate times. 

They may be used to take pictures, access scriptures, read books, listen to music, etc., especially on the long bus ride, but should generally be turned off/put away during any group discussions/activities, and Sunday meetings. *Schedule will designate when phones are NOT permitted.
