We provide an off-campus rate for those conferees live in the surrounding Asheville area and do not have a need to stay on campus. The off-campus rate also helps when our on-campus housing has been filled. Conferees can still stay at the foot of the Cove and attend the conference.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

ACWC is held in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Weather is something we cannot predict and since our conference is a winter conference, we have made arrangements for you to secure travel insurance should you chose to do so. We have yet to be snowed out, but it’s important you realize ACWC continues, regardless of the weather. If you fear that snow could be an issue, then you may purchase travel insurance on your own. ACWC cannot refund conference registrations due to weather.  ACWC is under contract with the Cove, and registrations must be paid and are non-refundable after a certain point. 

AIG Insurance offers a very affordable travel insurance (anywhere from $25-$90 depending on your age, amount to cover, and the state you live in).  As we noted – weather has never been an issue, but we don’t want you to be out your registration should you feel you cannot make the trip.

You may contact AIG at 1-800-826-4919. ACWC makes no money from the sale of travel insurance. This number is provided merely as a convenience to our conferees. Should you choose to purchase the insurance it is your responsibility to flesh out all the details.

                   The Cove’s Policy on Children
The Cove is a christian Adult Retreat Center meant for personal restoration and conferences. Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to stay on campus. There are personal retreats and additional conferences running along side Boot Camp. Please respect this policy. Of course there is an exception to every rule. Teens 15 and over are permitted to attend Writers Boot Camp. They must be accompanied by a paying adult and are required to attend Boot Camp Classes. If you have a teen who wishes to attend boot camp please contact Cindy so she can secure the proper permissions for this attendee. The rate is the same  as is an adult.

The weekend of our conference there will be a very unique one-time conference held on the Cove Campus for young mothers and their infants. This is a one-time unique event and is, the exception to the rule. Please do not ask us about bringing your children. It will only force us to say no.

Unfortunately, boot camp cannot be used for family accommodations while our conference is in session. Three hotels are located at the entrance of the Cove where families can stay and then enjoy a long weekend in beautiful Asheville. All individuals must be registered and attending the conference in order to stay on the premises of the Cove. (This is not us, this is the 501(c )3 status requirements for The Cove.) We ask you respect that and not put us in a position to have to say no.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations can be made prior to January 4 with full reimbursement. Cancellations from January 5-15 will result in a refund less $40. Cancellations after January 15-25, 1/2 the conference rate and after January 25 fees are non-refundable.
