  1. Stay with your group & group leader at all times during Girls Weekend.
  2. Under no circumstances should students or leaders be anywhere other than where they are scheduled to be (church, host homes, activity locations). It is crucial for the staff to know where groups are at all times.
  3. Take care of your host homes. Abide by all house rules that they provide for you. Be sure to thank them for opening their home to you by taking good care of it!  
  4. No pranks. Pranks might be fun but they can be a huge distraction. No water guns, toilet paper, shaving cream, or other prank materials.
  5. Respect all leaders, pastors, and host homes. For your safety do what they ask you to do the first time.
  6. All medications should be given to the leaders / host homes upon arrival.
  7. BE ON TIME to everything on your schedule.
