  • All attendees must check in on arrival. A chaperone will be just outside the shelter checking people in.
  • We know some drive far to attend, parents are welcome to stay, we just ask you bring your own folding chairs and hang out in the parent areas, so as not to take away space from the kids in the shelter.  The venue is just not large enough to accommodate all the guests, their parents and siblings. There are many other amenities at the park that are available for you to enjoy.There are some restaurants in close driving distance, as well as a Video Game World if you have younger siblings with you.  A map with nearby attractions will be provided. 
  • Attendance is conditional upon respectful behavior at the discretion of the hosts. 
  • Parents will be notified of any disruptive behavior. 
  • There are volunteer parents that will be chaperoning the teens as they hang out and have some fun.  
  • All of the music played at this event are clean radio edited versions of the Top 100 Hits.
  • We cannot take song requests. Music is purchased before the dance and is being provided by volunteers rather than a professional DJ.

Great gift idea for homeschoolers!
