Where do students sleep?
Our college students graciously host our YQ Retreaters in our college dorms.
Often sleeping arrangements will be on the floor, so feel free to bring a single foam mattress.

Where do Youth Workers sleep?
Youth workers are placed in dorms with their groups by default. This helps your group settle into their arrangements quickly.  If you require special accommodation arrangements please contact Melanie at yq@briercrest.ca or call 306.756.3251

Do youth workers have to stay in the dorm?
We do have a limited amount of space in dorm set aside for leaders.
These are gender-specific, shared rooms and are filled on a first come, first served basis.
Please make a special inquiry with yq@briercrest.ca to request placement in this dorm.

Can I book a hotel room?
We'd suggest booking in early to the Pilgrim Inn located in Caronport. It fills up fast.
We are, however, unable to reduce registration cost if you opt out of the provided lodging.

Where do bus drivers sleep?
Bus drivers who are not youth leaders with your group will be placed in our youth worker dorm as long as space is available. Please make a special inquiry with yq@briercrest.ca to request placement in this dorm.

Does my bus driver have to register?
Any leader who will be around the event and in Briercrest lodging is asked to register.

Do we need to bring our own bedding?
Yes, please do!

Some dorms have one large bathroom for an entire hall and others have one small bathroom for every 2 rooms.
Either way, it's a college dorm so plan accordingly.

If you are concerned about your particular vehicle please come and see our staff at the registration booth and we will do our best to help you.

Is there medical care on site?
