FAQ - Women's Weekend 2019

Q: What does the cost of camp include?
A: Your camp fee covers room and board and all activities while at camp as well as transportation between the Malibu Landing in Egmont, BC and the Malibu Club departing Thursday at 12:30 pm and returning on Sunday around 11:30 am. 

Q: What should I pack?
A: We provide you with a cozy bunk bed outfitted with blankets, pillow, and sheets as well as a bath towel. You will want to bring your own toiletries, a washcloth, a beach towel, and any special pillow you might like to have.
As far as clothes go, be your self and be comfortable! Layers will be your friend because mornings and evenings are typically chilly...and there is always a chance of rain in the PNW.
Tennies or other sturdy shoes will benefit you on a lot of our rides, and on the wood boardwalks.
Bring your swimsuit because the water is awesome rain or shine - and the pool is heated (really, it is!).
Saturday evening many women get a little more dressed up for dinner (really whatever you have clean is great) so feel free to pack something for "Club Malibu Dinner." 

Q: What are these "health forms" I need to fill out and how much information do you really need?
A: All campers and work staff at all Young Life properties are required to have an up-to-date Health Form completed for every time they are at a Young Life camp. Please do this BEFORE you leave for Canada. This account is different than the one used to purchase tickets!

Here are some health form tips...
Visit http://healthform.younglife.org (log-in if you've done this before or create a user name and password) and complete the form as an ADULT GUEST from Young Life Area AG425 (NOT by searching your zip code/local YL Area). You might notice phrases like "parent/guardian" if you are 18 or older consider this phrase to say "participant." If you have completed a health form for a different camp, use the COPY feature from the most recent you have completed. This will copy over all transferable information to a new form, select Malibu and the correct dates, go through the form to update the necessary fields, fill the signatures, and electronically sign the form. 

 For questions with health forms, please contact Young Life at 719-381-1844 or camping@sc.younglife.org

Q: Do you really need my immunization history on my health form?
A: Yes - to a certain extent. Most importantly, we need the date of your last tetanus shot. All other dates you can approximate.

Q: Who is the club speaker?
A:  The amazing Monica Zylstra will be joining us from Washington as our club speaker this year!

Q: When do I need to arrive in Egmont? When does The Malibu Princess depart?
A: The Malibu Princess will embark on our "three-hour tour" to Malibu at 12:30 pm on Thursday, September 12th. Please arrive in Egmont no later than 12/noon to check-in and get your luggage on the boat. Sailing on the 7:30 am BC Ferry (or traveling the day before) will be the most reliable way to make it to the Egmont landing on time. Please check updated sailing times at BCferries.com​ where you can also make ferry reservations and see up to date sailing time delays and more!

Q: The Malibu Club is not in California? How do I even get there?
A: Correct, the Malibu Club is in British Columbia, Canada. First of all, this means you should find your passport (or enhanced drivers license/passport card) because you will need it to cross the border. Those of you who have been to Malibu know that part of the magic of this particular Young Life Camp is the adventure of getting there! We'll give you a brief overview, but for a more detailed version visit the "Camp Info & Driving Directions" page - a good version to print and bring with you to avoid international cell charges for using a navigation system. Most of you will travel North on I-5 from the greater Seattle/Tacoma area by car. We suggest taking Exit 275 to cross the US/Canada Border at the Truck Crossing. From there, go North on Hwy-15 to West Hwy-1 (Trans Canada Highway towards Vancouver) to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal. Make sure you purchase a ticket to LANGDALE/SUNSHINE COAST on the 7:30 am or 9:50 am ferry (you can make reservations at BCferries.com if you'd like - we recommend it). After driving off the ferry, follow signs for Hwy-101/Sunshine Coast Hwy to the Egmont/Skookumchuck Narrows turnoff. About 2 miles after the Egmont turnoff, turn left onto Maple Road. Continue up the hill until you see a sign for Malibu. Head slowly all the way down the driveway to where our staff and volunteers will be serving as parking attendants and luggage helpers. Walk down to the lower lot and find the check-in desk to let us know you are here and relax because YOU MADE IT and it's going to be a wonderful weekend!! 

Q: When will I get home on Sunday?
A: The Malibu Princess will depart the Malibu Club at 8:30 am on Sunday. This will get you back to the Malibu Landing in Egmont by 11:30 am where your cars are parked. We would recommend making reservations at BCFerries.com on one of the sailings at 1:50 pm or later for the BC Ferry from Langdale to Horseshoe Bay. For a reservation to be honored, you must arrive at the terminal 30 minutes or more prior to sailing. If you arrive later, you will board the ferry with the other drive-up passengers and space is subject to availability. Either way, plan on arriving back in the Seattle area late on Sunday evening.

Q: What are my alternative transportation options?
A: Kenmore Air. If for some reason you are unable to get to Malibu the traditional way, you could book a flight to Malibu from Seattle on Kenmore Air. Prices and flight schedules are handled directly with the camper (you) and Kenmore and are subject to change based on weather. Tickets generally run about $620 round trip per person. Important note for air travel - you must have a valid passport to clear customs to/from Canada via air travel. Call them directly for reservations at 866.435.9524 and ask for CHARTERS, not regularly scheduled flights.

Q: What is the agenda once I'm at camp?
A: One of the greatest parts of Women's Weekend is that you don't have to worry about a schedule, cook, clean or do dishes! Because of that, we keep most of the schedule generally a surprise and post pertinent information on a whiteboard near the office. That being said, we understand you might want to know a little bit about what you're getting yourself into - or what you're inviting your friends to get themselves into. So just know, we have a team of incredible women planning this camp year round so that you and your friends will have the best weekend of the year!
You will eat delicious food in a dining hall with a spectacular view. You will be inspired and challenged by a variety of speakers and seminar leaders. You will have engaging conversations with old and new friends alike. You will have a blast with all the fun activities around camp including water skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, giant tree swing, frisbee golf, volleyball, swimming, stand-up paddle boards, mountain bikes (weather permitting) and much more! Rest assured, you are in good hands - Young Life has been doing this for over 75 years - and we know how to have a good time!
