We are not providing onsite registration. You have to register to attend and must register online only.


Those in need of housing will be housed on the Spartanburg Seventh-day Adventist Church campus. There will be separate sleeping arrangements for the guys and girls along with overnight supervision. Please note that these sleeping arrangements including sleeping on the floors on the church campus.

There will be a tent area on the field if you are wanting to bring a tent to sleep in. All tents must be supervised by a chaperone that you bring. Male and females are not allowed in the same tent unless you are a family or married.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are planning to bring a group and you have both boys and girls, you are required to bring male and female chaperones to supervise your youth.

We have provided a list of hotels on our website that are close to the church in case you, your group or family wish to stay in one of them. There are no discounted rates available.

There will be showers available Saturday morning at the local YMCA. Shower transportation will be on Saturday morning starting at 6am. The YMCA will generously provide towels, soap, shampoo, and conditioner so you do not need to bring those items to Alive if you are staying overnight and taking a shower.

There will be options, during online registration, to purchase meals if you want us to serve you. This has to be selected and paid for during online registration via credit card or PayPal account. There will be NO ONSITE REGISTRATION and NO onsite payments made for food either.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are wanting to eat at Alive and have not purchased meals, you will have to bring your own food. You will not have access to the kitchen nor are you allowed to plug in crock pots or any other electrical cooking devices.
