Gateway Kids | Summer Week FAQ

Can I register my child for any location?
We are hosting Summer Week at three hubs. You are welcome to register for any of these locations:

  • Southlake Campus Hub: Our Southlake and Grand Prairie Campus Kids teams will meet here.
  • North Fort Worth Campus Hub: Our North Fort Worth, North Richland Hills (NRH), and Justin Campus Kids teams will meet here.
  • Frisco Campus Hub: Our Frisco, Prosper, and Dallas Campus Kids teams will meet here.

Do you accept same-day registration?
Yes! We will gladly offer same-day registration if space is still available.

Is financial aid available?
It’s our desire for every child that wants to come to Summer Week to be able to attend! If you are experiencing financial difficulty, please contact us at for more information.

Can my child attend if they are under 6 years old?
Summer Week content and activities are specifically designed for elementary kids ages 6 years old through 6th grade. We are unable to have kids under 6 years old attend. Thank you for understanding.

Can my child with special needs attend the event?
We want to make every effort for your child to attend. Please contact us at to discuss how we can provide your child a great experience.

What should my child wear to the event?
All of our activities will be indoors. Because the auditorium is enclosed and air-conditioned, we recommend jeans or pants and layered clothing, including a light jacket in case they get cold.

Bonus: At check-in, your child will receive a Summer Week team T-shirt to wear at the event!

What should my child bring to the event?
Your child should bring a Bible and light jacket in case they get cold. We ask that all other personal items be left at home. Thank you!

What if my child has an EpiPen or inhaler?
If your child has an EpiPen or inhaler, we ask that you bring the item with you to Check-In along with the following completed Medical Release.

Is lunch provided at the event?
A nut-free snack* will be part of our activities, but lunch will not be provided. To ensure your child is ready for a ton of fun at Summer Week, please make sure they have a good breakfast to start the day.

*Due to extreme allergies of some attendees, Gateway Church has a no-nut snack food policy that says, “no products may contain nuts.”

Can my child sit with their friend at the event?
Yes! We ask that your child and their friend check-in together on the first day of the event so we can assign them to the same team.

Can I drop off my child early?
Doors open for check-in at 9 am each day. We ask that you stay with your child until auditorium doors open for seating at 9:30 am.

Can I pick up my child early?
Because of our planned activities, we ask that your child stay through the duration of the event and not leave early.

Can I stay during the event?
For the safety of everyone attending, we do not allow anyone into the building that is not a registered Summer Week volunteer or staff member. We require every adult working the event to have a background check and attend training. This is the best way for us to ensure your child is safe. Thank you for understanding.

Are there any special guidelines due to COVID-19?
We will follow the same guidelines we do for our weekend services. See our In-Person FAQ.

I want to serve at Gateway Kids Summer Week! How do I sign up?
Volunteers 7th grade or older are welcome to be a part of Summer Week! Learn more.

Can I get a refund for cancellation?
We know plans change! We can only issue refunds through Sunday, June 6, when event registration closes.
