At our marriage getaways, we need several couples to help us with set-up and administrative details throughout the weekend. If you have skills in guest relations or administration please fill out the form below to volunteer. These positions require a Friday-through-Sunday commitment. Most require taking time off of work on Friday. Registration discounts may apply for those who are accepted.

FamilyLife recommends that you enhance your getaway experience by staying overnight at the getaway hotel. The getaway hotels have graciously extended a special discount for all Weekend to Remember guests. Hotel information can be found with the getaway event information on the Find your getaway page.

You are responsible for making your hotel reservations.  When you call the hotel to make your room reservation, mention that you are attending FamilyLife’s Weekend to Remember so that you will receive the discounted room rate we have negotiated with the hotel. You must reserve your hotel room at least three weeks prior to the getaway in order to guarantee this special discount rate.
