Each DEC has a limited number of seats. If the registration form will still let you register, then you know that there are still possible openings.
An email will be submitted immediately to you. If you received it, we received it also.
We have found that DEC retreats are best when we have at least 16 participants. Some weekends, we have at least 16 participants right away. Some weekends, we don’t know until very close to the weekend if there will be at least 16 participants. If you will be travelling from another state, please keep in touch with us before making any travel plans.
Please talk with us first before making any flight reservations. We prefer to have 16 participants before we commit to a weekend. If we do not have enough participants for a weekend, we typically postpone the retreat until the next DEC weekend.
We encourage arrival on Thursday evening and departure on Monday morning. If you must arrive on Friday morning, please ensure arrival no later than 9 am. If you must leave Sunday evening, please ensure your departure is no earlier than 9 pm.
If you are from outside of Minnesota, DEC will arrange your hospitality needs for either Thursday, Sunday, or both.
Transportation from/to the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport/train/bus stations will be taken care of by DEC, including transportation to/from the retreat center.
Deposit refunds are given for notifications of cancellation 5 days prior to the retreat. Use the “Contact Us” link to notify us of any cancellation. Deposits are non-refundable but it can be carried over to future retreats.
If you used the online registration form, you should have received an email after you finished your registration. In the email, you will find instructions on what to bring. You will also have similar information in your welcome letter.
