All participants under the age of 18 attending FNCC without their parent or guardian, must submit a signed minor consent form to the FNCC office before arrival. The form can be faxed to FNCC directly at (954) 349-5001 or submitted to the zone/territory office that processed the FNCC application. In addition, participants under 18 must bring a copy of the signed consent form with them to the conference.
Normally it is very hot and humid in Florida in the summer; therefore casual attire is recommended during the conference. You may want to bring a light jacket or sweater to wear inside as the air conditioning in the buildings can be cold. Comfortable shoes such as sneakers or rubber-soled shoes are highly recommended since walking from building to building is necessary. A swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and gymnasium will be available for use during the conference, so you may want to bring your swimsuits and sportswear. It is also advisable to bring a hat, sunglasses, sun screen and insect repellant. Coin-operated laundry facilities are available in the dormitory buildings.
Plenty of food will be available. Meals are served three times a day in the Sunshine Dining Hall and beverages are available throughout the day. There is no room service. Soft drinks are available from vending machines in the gym and the community center. If you require special meals or beverages, you will need to bring them with you. Vegetarian (or vegan) meals can be prepared as long as this requirement is reported to the zone office prior to the conference.
Soap, shampoo, and towels are provided in your room. There are no stores located near the FNCC, so you will need to bring all other toiletry items and any necessary medications with you. It is also a good idea to bring along a copy of your prescription. It is highly recommended you bring sun-block lotion, especially in the summer months.
All instructional materials will be provided for each participant.
