Classic ReBoot:


Details on March 31st cancellation decision deadline.

Our desire is to provide a tremendous transition retreat experience for MKs at ReBoot ON & AB. To accomplish this we need 15 MKs in attendance at any ReBoot as we place a high value on peer learning. If by March 31st we have 15 registrants, we’ll run ReBoot. If not, we’ll consider amalgamating ReBoot ON & AB.

Once the decision has been made an announcement will be sent out on or before April 15th to all interested parties.

When should I book flights and make travel plans?

Please wait to book any flights or make any travel plans until the following events have occurred:

  • the announcement regarding the March 31st cancellation decision has been sent out. This will occur on or before April 15th and will be sent out to all interested parties as well as posted on the Canadian MK Network and MORE Network websites.

Why do we need signing permission for MK's who are minors (under 18)?

Some of the special activities we participate in during ReBoot require the signing of additional liability and safety forms while on site prior to participation. MK’s over the age of 18 can sign on their own behalf. MK’s younger than 18 technically need the signature of a parent or guardian, however, if your parent/guardian have given us permission to do so we can sign on their behalf. To request specific information on what these activities might be please contact the appropriate ReBoot Director.

  • and the staff team has reviewed and approved your application.

When is the balance of funds due?

The $525 registration fee is due at time of application for your application to be considered for ReBoot. $100 of this is non-refundable right away. The  full $525 is non-refundable after May 31st. Participants are not personally responsible for the balance of funds. See next section below in FAQ for an explanation on how the remaining funds are raised. 

BACK TO THE TOP

How are the remaining funds raised?

The total cost of ReBoot is $1,350/per person. The remaining $825, after registration fees have been paid, are raised through a partnership of mission sending and training organizations, churches, and personal donors.

BACK TO THE TOP

Can I make a roommate request?

Roommates are assigned by the ReBoot Director and the staff. You have the joy of being with your friend during the day as well as building new friendships with your roommate.

BACK TO THE TOP

If arriving from overseas, when should I arrive in Canada prior to ReBoot?

When traveling from overseas to attend ReBoot we highly recommend that you arrive in Canada at least 5-7 full days before the beginning of ReBoot. This is especially important if you are traveling from Asia, Africa or Europe. The schedule for ReBoot is very busy and requires your full attention in all session to make the most of the experience. The learning is cumulative, and we want to ensure that struggles with jetlag at the beginning won’t interfere with your learning in later sessions. We want you to be able to fully participate and engage in the programing right from the start.
