FAQ’S:   If you have additional questions please do not hesitate to call us at 940-691-8777.

Lodging: Each hotel room has its own private dressing area and private bathroom with tub/shower (includes all linens and towels). Rooms have double beds or twin beds and some rooms have beds to sleep 5 or 6. If you have a larger group up to 6 let us know and we will try to keep you all in one hotel room together, first come first reserve basis.  Call 940-691-8777 or stop by the store to purchase your retreat. Please remember if  you purchase the $310 or $355 retreat ticket there will be 3 people to a room, if you do not have a room mate we will try to help you otherwise you will  both be charged the correct room rate 2 weeks prior to the retreat  Therefore please let us know if you have preferred roommates. Otherwise we will fill the room for you with others that also want roommates.  In the past many have booked their room for 3 and then only 2 of them registered resulting in the store having to pay the cost for the no show of the third person – effective 10-1-17.  This will be the responsibility of the attendees, as it should be. Please try hard to get the numbers in your room based upon what you book your room for.  The store has had to pay the difference for those that did ot get the correct number in their reserved room there this policy WILL BE enforced from now on.   Thank you for helping us be fair to all attendees.

The facility has a regular size community refrigerator near crop area for our use plus a microwave. Feel free to label your drinks or snacks and store them in there.  We use to offer a full coffee service during the retreats but were asked not to anymore to cut back on retreat ticket expense since no all ladies drink coffee, plus so much was wasted it wasn’t fair to the facility.  If you want coffee you are more than welcome to bring your own small coffee pot and coffee as their is a nice area in the main lobby right by the crop area you can make and leave your coffee pot.

Meals: All lunch and dinner camp chef meals also include a fully stocked salad bar and are prepared by the camp chef. He is very good but can’t seem to figure out how to remove the calories, lol, so feel free to take a walk afterwards along the walking paths of the private country side, as it’s very beautiful this time of the year!   The ** 6 meals for Thursday attendance include:   Lunch & Dinner (Friday), Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner (Saturday), Breakfast (Sunday).  The ** 5 meals for those attending starting on Friday include:  Dinner (Friday), Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner (Saturday), Breakfast (Sunday)

Retreat Policies:  Please no soliciting allowed.  SNS hosts this event and only SNS has the right to sell product, take orders, etc. Those in violation of this policy will be asked to leave without a refund. In the event something happens and you cannot attend, we do not offer refunds but all tickets are transferrable and once our occupant is filled we will help you find someone to purchase your ticket from you.  We just ask that you please let us know whom will be attending in your place. Please no alcohol on Church Camp Grounds.

To purchase your retreat ticket:  Call 940-691-8777 or stop by the store.  You may also mail your check to: Scrapbook n Such, 4701 Southwest Parkway, Suite 1, Wichita Falls, Texas  76310. Be sure to include your t shirt size, whom you want to room with (unless you want a single room with no roommate) room and include sales tax 8.25% to the amount of your retreat ticket. Also let us know if you want to take the class by Suzy West (only pre registration class kits will be made so be sure we know, in advance, if you want to take the free class on Saturday morning. 

***  If you purchase a retreat ticket for 3 to a room and only end up with 1 or 2 to a room you will be responsible for the change in occupancy rate within 2 weeks prior to start date of the retreat.   

***  If you purchase a ticket to attend on Thursday but your room mate(s) do not come till Friday you will be responsible for the room rate increase for Thursday night.  The increase in your room rate will be due within 2 weeks prior to the start date of the retreat.

These changes will be enforced as in the past it has become too expensive for the store to continue to pay for additional accommodations rates compared to what was originally booked.
