WHO IS KAIROS FALL GATHERING FOR?
Fall Gathering is designed for collegiate/young adults, 18-25 years old, and their leaders.
WHAT ARE THE CURRENT COVID-19 GUIDELINES AND POLICIES FOR FALL GATHERING? (UPDATED: September 13,2021)
We are committed to making sure that all of our attendees are safe and feel comfortable as they participate in
Kairos Fall Gathering 2021. The following guidelines will be in place for Kairos Fall Gathering 2021:
All Fall Gathering attendees will be required to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status, when indoors and in designated public areas on the Eagle Eyrie campus. This includes Community Groups, Main Sessions, and Breakout Sessions.
If you experience any COVID symptoms in the 48 hours prior to Fall Gathering 2021, we ask that you stay home. Attendees will be asked to complete the Fall Gathering COVID Health Screen checklist prior to attending.
If you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID in the past 14 days, please stay at home.
In order to gather safely, we will have socially distanced seating in our main sessions. Attendees are asked to stay seated together with their respective campus/church and sit in the same seat throughout the weekend.
Block scheduling and spaced seating for meals will be set up to reduce crowding in the dining hall. Groups will be asked to eat with their respective campus/church during their assigned block.
Indoor masking will not be required inside for individual/church lodges and accommodation capacity requirements will not be altered for lodges at this time. Individual campus/church groups will determine their own safe practices inside of their group’s lodge(s).
If you have any additional concerns for your group, please let us know by October 1 by emailing us at here.
If any attendee tests positive or develops COVID-19 symptoms during Fall Gathering, the individual, and
anyone that the individual has been in contact with for more than 15 minutes consecutively, will be required to
isolate for the remainder of Fall Gathering. The Kairos Fall Gathering Event Director should be notified
immediately. Attendance for Main Sessions, breakouts and activities will be prohibited. The Kairos Team will
make arrangements for the group to receive all included meals. A plan will then be developed for the
individual’s safe return home.
We will continue to assess the situation and provide updates at the 15-day and 7-day marks leading up to Fall
Gathering. Future Fall Gathering updates will be emailed to you directly as well as posted here on the FAQ
CANCELLATION / REFUNDS DUE TO COVID-19
We do not expect that Fall Gathering will be cancelled this year. However, if there is a change in the status of local government guidelines and large gatherings are not allowed, your group will receive a full refund.
If you are unable to attend Fall Gathering due to the impact of COVID-19, we will work with you on a case-by-case basis in refunding your registration costs as much as possible.
Please note that if you choose not to attend Fall Gathering due to a situation unrelated to COVID-19, the Fall Gathering cancellation policy would apply.
