Leader FAQs

» Does RYM require background checks on leaders & chaperones?

Yes. All leaders and chaperones (over 18 years old) are required to have BOTH of the following:

1. National Criminal Background Check 
2. Ministry Safe Child Sexual Abuse Awareness Training

Please refer to the RYM Child Protection Guidelines for more information including links to each requirement. Deadlines for completing the national criminal background check and the Ministry Safe Child Sexual Abuse Awareness training are before you attend RYM as a chaperone.

» When can I start registering my group? How do I reserve space for RYM High School Florida 2?

Churches can now reserve spots for any RYM summer conference via the 2017 RYM Summer Conference Registration Form. Spots are first be secured by the church. Individuals need to be in communication with their church/group leader who will reserve spots through RYM. A $100/person deposit is required to reserve space. Deposit payments must be made to finalize your group reservation.

» Is the $100 per person deposit refundable? Transferrable?

No. The deposit is non-refundable and non-transferrable. If you drop your numbers/spots, the deposit of those unused spots cannot be refunded or applied toward the remaining balances. This applies even if you have registered for multiple RYM conferences.

» Are there ever any late fees for anything?

Yes. After May 15th, there is a $25 late fee incurred (per person in your group) for any remaining balance unpaid. If your group consists of 10 people, and you are late paying your remaining balance, your late fee would be 10 x $25 = $250. For a group of 25, your late fee would be 25 x $25 = $625.

» Can I make changes to my registration list?

Yes, you may exchange students or chaperones on your registration list. However, within two weeks of the conference (June 26th), you may only exchange a boy for a boy or a girl for a girl (because housing assignments will be arranged). Please communicate clearly with the RYM Conference Coordinator about any changes.

» What about students who drop out? Do we still have to pay for their spot?

You only have to pay for the spot if they drop out within a week before the conference (July 3rd). If they drop out before this timeframe (and you let us know), you can get a refund for that spot less the $100 non-refundable deposit. Again, please communicate clearly with the RYM Conference Coordinator about any changes to your roster.

» What is the suggested chaperone to student ratio?

While we leave the specifics up to the trip leader (you know your students best) we suggest a ratio of 1 chaperone to every 6 students. 

» Can chaperones bring their children?

No. No exceptions (unless your children are at the proper age to fully participate in RYM).

» Do we need both male and female chaperones?

If you are bringing both male and female students, you will need both male and female chaperones.

» Can we request a certain room?

No.

» Can we request to stay with another group?

Yes, however there can be no guarantees as housing is tight.

» Where can I find all the forms my students have to fill out?

You can find all the necessary forms at the High School Florida #2 Info Hub.

» What age is considered high school? Who can come to HSFL2?

For high school, rising 9th graders through graduating 12th graders can come to RYM. Rising 9th graders have the option to attend middle school or high school RYM, or both according to individual church needs. If you have any questions, please ask the RYM Conference Coordinator.

» What kind of swimwear is allowed?

Modest swimwear is required - for both boys & girls. For girls, a one-piece bathing suit or tankini is acceptable, as long as it is modest (please - no bare midriffs). Boy's shorts/swim-trunks must be modest in length and coverage; boys are expected to wear a shirt when not at the pool or beach.
