The registration cost covers snacks & water, conference supplies and a National Park pass (good for 7 days).

Transportation to the conference is up to each individual. Once in Springdale, we'll be utilizing the free shuttles which go from our campsite to the conference every 12 mins. Click here for shuttle times. We'll only be able to fit 8 cars at our campsite, so some cars might need to be moved into the nearby Visitor's Center.
WE'RE CAMPING! We opted not to stay in hotels because $, or to be split up in home-stays with local Rotarians because we wanted to hang out. As such, you are responsible to bring your own gear, including a tent w/ rain protection, sleeping pad, bag & pillow, appropriate clothing & shoes, etc. Please don't underestimate mother nature in the spring!
Don't sweat (or do!)-- you can shower at Zion Outfitters until 10:30pm, which is walking distance from our campsite. Click here to learn more.
Weather: Late April in Zion can get up to 80 degrees, and as low as 40 degrees. There can also be lots of wind & rain, so plan accordingly. If the forecast predicts extreme conditions, we may need to cancel the event.
What to expect: At the conference, you'll mingle with like-minded folks, doing hands-on service in Zion, dinner with Rotarians, a sunrise hike, an interactive conference, and of course, s'mores around the campfire. Click here for the schedule.
What to bring: Camping gear (tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, pillow, camping chair, etc.), regular travel stuff (clothing, toiletries, yada yada), bring your bike + lock if you're into biking, bring your guitar or clarinet for the campfire, bring friends, and bring your positive attitude (ha ha...had to include that!).
