Q: What's new for Pursuit this year? Why is this the event you need to attend this summer?
A: Get all your questions answered about Boundless' back-by-popular-demand summer event by listening to Colorado + Summer + You: Episode 366 from The Boundless Show podcast.
Q: Who can register?
A: Pursuit is open to unmarried young adults ages 18-39. If you are married or over age 39, you may volunteer at the event.
Q: How do I volunteer?
A: Email Melinda at HRvolunteer@fotf.org for more information.
Q: What does the registration cost include?
A: The cost of your registration (whether VIP or standard) includes conference attendance, a snack break, a coffeehouse/dessert on Thursday, morning coffee and lunch on Friday and Saturday, and a dinner on Saturday night as well as conference materials.
Q: Why is there an age limit to attend Pursuit?
A: Our decision to restrict the age limits for attendance was not made quickly or lightly. We know that Boundless has readers and listeners of all ages, and the diversity of age and experience makes our community truly unique. That said, because of the nature of Pursuit, we felt it necessary to provide age parameters around the core of our audience — namely, 20- and 30-somethings. This doesn’t mean that we’ve forgotten those who are older or younger; it just means that for this particular experience, our inherent limitations made it necessary for us to draw a line on attendance.
Q: What airport do you recommend I fly into?
A: It is usually cheaper to fly in and out of Denver (DEN) than Colorado Springs (COS), but check both airports when searching. Discount airlines such as Southwest or Spirit both fly in and out of DEN. Also keep in mind that DEN is a hub for United and Frontier.
Q: How am I supposed to get from the airport to my hotel?
A: A couple of modestly priced shuttle options from either DEN or COS include Colorado Springs Shuttle and Front Range Shuttle. Front Range Shuttle drops off and picks up at Hilton Garden Inn, which is within walking-distance from Focus on the Family — a great option if you want to avoid renting a car.
Q: When should I book my hotel?
A: The hotels listed on our Travel page have set aside a number of rooms for Pursuit, which means when they're gone, they're gone. Do not wait until the last minute to make your hotel reservation, or you may not get your first choice of places to stay.
Q: What is the address of Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs?
A: Check-in for Pursuit will begin at 3 p.m. on Thursday, July 9 in the Focus on the Family Welcome Center located at 8685 Explorer Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80920. VIP attendees may register starting at 2 p.m. in the Focus on the Family Administration Building.
Q: What if I have some dietary restrictions?
A: When you register for Pursuit, you will be able to indicate any medically necessary dietary requirements, including gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian. Your meals will then be specially made and plated at Pursuit, and you will not be able to switch meals.
Q: Are there group discounts?
Q: Will you provide childcare?
Q: What should I bring?
A: Here are a few things we recommend: A light jacket, water bottle, your Bible and a journal, sunscreen and sunglasses. Dress code is casual yet classy and modest.
Q: Is there a way for me to find a roommate or find others with whom to carpool?
A: Yes. Go to our Pursuit event page on Facebook to connect with other attendees and make arrangements.
Q: What will the coffeehouse/mixer on Thursday be like?
A: Our Thursday night coffeehouse/mixer is our way of kicking off the conference in a fun, laid-back and relational way. We'll have coffee (obviously!), snacks, music and tables that encourage meeting and mingling. Think your favorite coffee shop with hundreds of your closest friends. Lisa may also provide get-to-know-you questions for your table to get the conversation started.
