What hotels do you recommend?

First of all, it's Carlsbad in the summer, so we recommend booking your hotel soon. Some nearby accommodations we recommend:

  • Legoland Hotel
  • Grand Pacific Palisades Resort & Hotel
  • Hilton Grand Vacations Club @ MarBrisa
  • Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa
  • Carlsbad Beach Inn Resort

For more affordable options:

  • Days Inn Carlsbad
  • Econo Lodge Inn and Suites Carlsbad
  • Motel 6 Carlsbad East
  • Ramada Inn Carlsbad

When I am not at the Summit, what should I do?

San Diego County has tons to offer. Downtown Encinitas, a day at the beach, tons of great restaurants and coffee shops, but we're also known for:

  • Legoland
  • Sea World
  • San Diego Zoo
  • San Diego Zoo Safari Park

Is my registration fee refundable?

Only until May 1, 2017. After May 1, the registration fee is non-refundable.

What time are the North Coast Calvary Chapel Sunday morning services?

8:45am & 10:45am. There is also a service at 6pm if you are staying later than Sunday afternoon. We'd love to have you.

Can/should I consider this work trip that could be expensed?

Several attendees do expense their trip being that most of the sessions do promote professional/leadership development. In addition, each year 20-25 top college seniors (invite only) attend the event, so naturally some recruitment will happen.

Can my spouse come?

Absolutely, and there is no fee for them to attend. They are welcome to sit in on any of the sessions, or just attend the evening dinners/sessions.

What is the attire of the weekend?

Casual. (San Diego in the summer tends to be that way.)

I have more questions that you haven't listed here! Who should I email?

You can email Bob Mackenzie at [email protected].
