At least one adult from the church is required to be present the entire time.  Adults can stay in a cabin with other adults, or with the same gendered youth if they have a Safe Gatherings certificate, or the equivalent.  Group registration is required.  Cross Trails requires parents/legal guardians to submit registration for their youth.
