Here's where you should start:
- Make a list of the names and t-shirt sizes of the youth and youth leaders attending Hammonassett
- Go to:
and use your email address to register (web link coming soon!)
You will receive an email confirmation of your registration which will include all the details you need. Print this confirmation and send along with your payment to the New England Synod. Also, bring a copy to the event.
We recommend that youth leaders obtain written parental/guardian permission for each youth, and bring those documents to the event.
After you've received confirmation of your registration, please visit the "Getting Ready" section of this site for everything you need to know about the event itself. It's important that you read through all the information provided, and print off anything that you would like to have at the event.
Registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis. The park has a maximum attendance of 900 for the group camping area and therefore, we must limit our registrations accordingly. Registrations should be entered by August 17th, 2014. Registrations entered after August 17th may be accepted as capacity allows, however, admittance is not guaranteed. Any group whose registration is received after August 17th runs the risk of not receiving T-shirts due to deadlines for getting the shirts printed.
Who can participate?
Hammonasset is intended for youth in grades 8 - 12. Keep in mind that every person, regardless of age, is considered in the campground occupancy totals, and therefore must be fully registered. Registration includes completing the online registration and paying the $35 per person fee.
Since the event is geared for high school students, we recommend one adult for every 5 youth. We recognize that some groups may need more adults for transportation purposes. In those cases, there should be no fewer than 3 youth per adult. The only exception should be very small groups who need to have two advisors (i.e., male and female).
