How many students will stay with us?
That is up to you! We ask that you host at least two students, so that each student has a roommate. If you can host more than two, great! You can also let us know if you have a preference for hosting guys are girls.
Do I have to drive them to the church each day?
No, we take care of all the transportation. The only time you need to drive them is after the opening reception on Saturday – and if you don’t have enough room in your vehicle, we can help you out with that too!
What if there is a night we can’t be home?
No problem – once all the students are placed, we give each host a list of all the host families. You could see about sharing meals with another family (one night their students come over to your house, and vice versa another night), or if it’s just for part of the evening, your students might not mind a little down time on their own. You can always feel free to ask us to make arrangements for them if you’re not sure what to do!
What about food allergies?
We try to match up students with major food allergies to host families that are able to easily accommodate special diets. We will let you know about any allergies or restrictions that your students have.
When will we know who we will be hosting?
We try to let you know your students’ names and what school they are from about 2 weeks before SICM, along with any other important details.
What kind of COVID protocols will be in place while students are attending SICM?
- For all conference participants, we ask that they get a COVID test within 72 hours before travel.
- During the conference, participants will be encouraged, but not required to wear masks in-doors.
- We will have rapid test and isolation protocols in place if anyone develops symptoms or tests positive during the conference.
