Super Summer FAQs
If I'm attending Leadership Forum or serving on Executive Staff, am I still required to send Team Leaders?
A: A church may send students to multiple sessions if there is space available. However, the Team Leader to Student requirement is required per session. The Team Leader to Student requirement is 1 Team Leader per 7 Students. Students from the same church should be registered on the same church account regardless of which session they attend.
A: Super Summer CANNOT hold or save spaces for participants who have not registered and paid online.
A: Recruit qualified Team Leaders from one or more of the following areas:
- Your Church! This is a great opportunity to identify and challenge new leaders to step up in service in your youth ministry.
- Local Baptist Student Ministry
- Local departments of Christian Studies/Ministries at Texas Baptists partnering universities
A: A cancellation occurs when an attendee can no longer attend and no other attendees from the same group are available to take over the registration. A transfer occurs when (1) one attendee cancels and a new attendee is able to take the cancelled attendee’s registration. All cancellations/registration transfers must be reported to the Super Summer Registration Navigator email@example.com.
A: Program Fees are refundable for the following 2021 qualifying cancellation reasons:
- Injury or illness of the attendee
- Death in the family of the attendee
- Attendee exposed to COVID-19 or under COVID-19 quarantine
- Event Cancellation
Campus Fees are refundable until check-in on site.
Refund requests must be submitted in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Refunds will be issued at the end of the event season. Enrollment Fees are non-refundable in all circumstances.
A: The Super Summer Registration Staff assigns students to dorms and rooms according to their gender, school color, and then church. For example, all Red School boys will be housed in dorm rooms in one section of the same dorm, Blue School boys together in another section, etc. Your students will be grouped together as much as possible. Students in different color schools will NOT be roomed together.
A: NO LATE CHECK-INS OR EARLY DEPARTURES or “COME-AND-GO” PARTICIPANTS ARE PERMITTED. Super Summer Students must arrive between 1:00 PM and 2:30 PM on Monday. Please note that your group will need to eat lunch prior to their arrival on campus. The first meal served to Super Summer students is Monday evening. Be certain that all students and their parents understand that students are required to remain on campus from the time they arrive on Monday until 11:30 AM on Friday.
Team Leaders and Super Summer Executive Staff must arrive two days earlier than students. Team Leaders check in at 2:00 PM (Rookies) and 2:30 PM (Veterans) on Saturday and remain on campus until 11:30 AM on Friday. Each church should enlist someone other than Team Leaders to transport students to Super Summer on Monday. Super Summer students are not permitted to arrive on Saturday with Team Leaders. Lunch is NOT served on Friday.
A: YES. Those serving on Executive Staff have other responsibilities that prevent them from doing all of the things that Team Leaders are required to do with and for the students throughout the week. If you send students, you must send additional adults to serve as Team Leaders, to meet the requirement of 1 Team Leader per 7 Students.
