What are tribes?

Tribes are a fun way to get students involved in the conference. Seating in the auditorium is split into four sections to represent each tribe and they will compete for prizes throughout the weekend. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed in their tribe colors!

Am I able to choose my tribe?

No, Tribes are randomly assigned to students registered. We can assure you that this will not take from a student’s experience. Should they have friends or family members on a different tribe they will still be able to experience the conference with them. They can even sit together in the auditorium during services even if they are on different tribes.

What tribe am I in?
You will be notified of your tribe via email prior to the conference and upon your arrival at check in.
What happens if some of my group is registered under a different tribe?

No worries! All seating is first come first served so your group will be able to sit together regardless of how they registered.
