EMPOWER this year will be different due to social distancing guidelines due to Covid-19 facility restrictions. Here are some important notes for people to remember this year.
We will be wearing masks.
All guests, ages 5 and older, are required to wear a face-covering that fully covers their nose and mouth, and secures under their chin, while visiting the resort. Guests are required to wear a face-covering in all public areas of the resort except while dining, visiting outdoor areas where a physical distance of six feet is maintainable, or when actively enjoying the water park attractions.
Wearing a face covering is part of the resort rules and listed in the terms and conditions guests agree to when visiting a Great Wolf Lodge. If a guest doesn’t have a face covering, the resort will provide one. If a guest repeatedly refuses to comply with resort rules that have a direct impact on the health and safety of resort guests and staff, the guest may be asked to stay confined in their room or leave the resort.
We will be socially distancing
Due to social distancing guidelines determined by Great Wolf Lodge there are strict limits on the number of people who can be present in a meeting room at any one time. In order to accommodate the largest number of people possible, the MWBC is implementing a rotation and simulcast schedule for EMPOWER.
We will be rotating rooms so everyone can attend one plenary session in person
The plenary sessions at 1:00 pm Friday, 7:00 pm Friday, and 9 am Saturday will be held in the Black Wolf Room and simulcast to Red Wolf, White Wolf, and Gray Wolf Rooms. Attendees will be assigned rooms in a rotation so that each attendee will be able to be in the Black Wolf Room for one of the three plenary sessions. During the event, attendees will visit other meeting rooms to view a simulcast of the plenary sessions in the Red Wolf Room, White Wolf Room, and Gray Wolf Rooms.
We will be releasing people from sessions in a staggered five-minute schedule so we do not overwhelm the lodge hallways with guests and hamper social distancing.
We will be sitting in family groups. Please sit with people you live with at home. Great Wolf has structured all the seating to keep families together and maximize the number of people in the room given the social distancing guidelines.
Just as MWBC churches have had to find creative solutions to meet for worship, the MWBC has had to be creative in hosting EMPOWER this year. Thank you for your flexibility in meeting with us during these unusual circumstances.
Great Wolf is requiring that all attendees of EMPOWER fill out and sign this form to be physically present on their property.
Gophers will start in Red Wolf Room at 1pm Friday.
Badgers will start in Black Wolf Room at 1pm Friday.
Loons will start in the White Wolf Room at 1pm Friday.
Robins will start in the Gray Wolf Room at 1 pm Friday.
