Why should my student attend The Gauntlet?
Senior Pastor, Perry Noble answers this question here.
What can I expect as a parent?
We want to inform you and give you as many details as possible to make sure you know your student is taken care of. We know how important your student(s) are to you, and we want you to know that they are important to us as well! Here are several ways to stay informed and get all of your questions answered:
Our Fuse staff hosts a parent meeting at each campus prior to the trip each year. At this meeting, you will get a booklet that includes arrival and departure times, a list of suggested items to bring, security info, FAQ's and every other piece of information you need to know in order to help prepare you and your student for the trip.

What kind of adult supervision is provided?
We will bring our Fuse volunteers to serve as small group leaders and supervision for our students. Each volunteer will be trained, background-checked, and interviewed. There will be 1 leader for every 3 students.
Will there be trained medical staff accompanying our group to The Gauntlet?
Will NewSpring staff and volunteers be administering student medication?
No. Due to the volume of students attending The Gauntlet, all student medication will need to be managed by the student.
Will my student be able to take a cell phone?
No. Because we believe this trip has the potential to be life-changing, we want to eliminate anything that might distract students from focusing on God.
What should I do if I have more questions?
Bring your questions to the parent meeting. We will cover all of the trip details and have a time for you to ask any remaining questions you have. Also, you may contact us at email@example.com.
