Terms + Conditions

Focus is a fully-catered, three-day weekend getaway for Vintage Church and invited friends.

1. Registration is essential

Guests arriving at Focus without a confirmed registration will not be admitted. A confirmed registration means that you have paid in full for your accommodation or for a day ticket.

All new registrations and changes to existing registrations must go through the Focus office. To change an existing reservation, please contact the Focus office directly at focus@vintagechurchla.com

Any guests discovered on-site without having registered will be asked to leave. Please note that only the guests who have registered for a particular accommodation may occupy that accommodation.  If any other person/persons are found occupying the accommodation, they will be asked to leave the site immediately and no refunds will be given.

Before we can finalize your registration and reserve your accommodation we will need the names, email addresses, mobile numbers and ages of all members of your party. In order to ensure guests’ needs are catered for adequately, we will need to know whether anyone in your party has any special needs, including restricted mobility or access requirements.

2. Refund policy

A full refund of your Focus purchase (registration and accommodation) booking fees of $25 p/p can be requested until May 1, 2017.  Please email focus@vintagechurchla.com for all refund requests.

3. All guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult

Please note that all children and youth remain the responsibility of their parents or guardians at all times, including at the swimming pool, except when they are with their age-group leaders. By agreeing to the Terms and Conditions you are accepting this responsibility.

6. Limitation of Liability

Vintage Church shall not be liable in any way for any failure to perform our obligations or for any loss, damage or delay incurred by the guest resulting from circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

5. Infectious diseases

Guests must inform the Event Coordinator on-site of the occurrence of any illness during their stay that may affect other guests. In order to protect other guests and employees, anyone with an infectious illness may be asked to remain in their accommodations or, under extreme conditions, asked to leave.

6. Care of facilities and personal items

Please treat your accommodations and camp facilities with care so that others may continue to enjoy them. We ask that you report any accidental damage to the Event Coordinator immediately so that they can make a repair or replacement. Accommodation is inspected at the end of every stay and you may be charged for any loss or damage.

Vintage Church and the Salvation Army, the owner and operator of Camp Mt. Crags & Camp Gilmore, will not be held liable for any loss or theft of personal belongings. Guests are encouraged to leave non-essential valuable items at home for the weekend and to care for their own belongings while at Focus. Please report any loss or theft to the Event Coordinator immediately so that any necessary action can be taken.

7. Filming and Photography

There will be official photographers and video crew on-site and guests may feature in these images. Images may be used on the Focus website, in promotional material or other Vintage Church printed material. Please note that this includes children. Should you prefer that any photographs of your child are not included in any official publications, please advise the Focus office in writing in advance of the week by writing to focus@vintagechurchla.com.

8. Pets

Focus guests are not allowed to bring pets on-site, with the exception of assistance dogs for persons with disabilities. Please contact the Focus office at focus@vintagechurchla.com should you need to bring an assistance dog on-site. Guests bringing pets on-site without permission will be asked to remove them immediately.

9. Lanyards/Name badge

As one of our safety measures, we operate a name badge policy and these are issued to guests upon arrival at the event. It is vital that you wear your name badge at all times whilst at Focus. Guests without name badges will not be granted entry to any venues and will need to request a replacement from the Focus office.

10. Smoking and Alcohol

Focus is a smoke-free, alcohol-free event, and Camp Mt. Crags/Gilmore is a smoke-free, alcohol-free camp. Anyone found in possession of smoking paraphernalia and/or alcohol will be sent home immediately.  No refund will be issued.

12. Illegal drugs

We have a zero-tolerance policy on illegal drugs.  Anyone found in possession of illegal substances will be sent home immediately and may be prevented from coming to future events.  No refund will be issued.

13. Unacceptable behavior

We reserve the right to terminate a retreat if unreasonable or anti-social behavior, caused by those persons named on their registration, impairs the enjoyment, comfort or health of other guests.  In extreme circumstances we reserve the right to escort any individual off-site.  No refund will be issued.
