Breakaway Guidelines

Listen to the leader: All students are expected to cooperate and follow the direction of their group leaders, Breakaway staff, and hotel personnel.

Curfew is not optional: No one is to be outside their room or in anyone else’s room after curfew without a leader present. If your group returns to the hotel after curfew, please proceed quietly to your rooms. Shouting, loud talking, slamming doors, etc. should be avoided.

House rules: You need to make sure that you follow and obey all the rules and policies at the hotel. This also applies to the late-night activity locations, restaurants, and malls.

No trespassing: You are not to be in anyone else’s room without their permission. Make sure that you close and lock your room whenever you are not present.

The boy/girl thing: Guys are not allowed in girl’s rooms, girls are not allowed in guy’s rooms – PERIOD. The only exception to this is if a group leader wants to gather students for pizza, etc. in a room. There must be adequate leadership supervision. No adult leader is to be alone in a room with a student at ANY time.

Find your floor: Do not use the elevators just for fun. Use them to get to your floor and then exit the elevator. There are stairways, please use them.

No smoking, vaping, alcohol, illegal drugs, or tobacco: These things are not permitted at Breakaway. Students have the opportunity to turn those things in right away to their group leaders and work things out with them.  If students are caught with these items, they will be dismissed from Breakaway and will need to be picked up immediately by a parent or guardian at their own expense, without refund of registration.

You break it, you buy it: Damage to the hotel and its property, Breakaway equipment, band equipment, or property of Central Region Open Bible is not allowed and is the responsibility of those who cause the damage. Individuals/groups will be held responsible for the cost of repair or replacement of damaged items.

Leaders – We ask that you not rent pay-per-view movies in your rooms following late night activities. Our curfew is late and if you rent a movie, you end up staying up until 3:00am or so watching it. This really inhibits students’ ability to get anything out of the services the next day.
