Gatherings FAQ

Do I need to register?

Yes! We would love for you to register to help us prepare for your arrival. Gatherings are available on a first-come, first-served basis. By registering, you will secure a spot in your Gathering of choice.

Can I register for more than one Gathering?

Sadly, no. Because spaces are limited, we want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to participate.

Are Gatherings free?

There are some Gathering options that you can participate in free of charge! However, there are also some that cost money, particularly if the Gathering involves a meal or an event. You can find more information about the average cost by selecting “Gather Here” under the Gathering of your choice.

Is there a waiting list?

We don't offer waiting lists for Gatherings. But be sure to check back next season to see if the Gathering you’re looking for is available again.

Can I bring my children?

Seasonally, we will offer Single Parent Gatherings for parents with children in elementary school or older. For the rest of our Gatherings, we request no children (as cute as they may be).

Why are Canopy Gatherings organized according to age ranges?

In our experience, people connect best with others who are similar in age and life stage. Therefore, we provide a variety of age-range options for each group in hopes of connecting you with your peers. We appreciate your honesty and respect of these designated age ranges when you register.

What if the Gathering I want isn't offered for my age?

The Gatherings we offer change with each cycle, so it’s possible that the Gathering you’re looking for could be available next season. However, if you want to guarantee it, you might want to consider Canopy Gatherings Leadership, where you can lead a Gathering for your desired interest and age range.
