ACWC is held in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Weather is something we cannot predict and since our conference is a winter conference, we have made arrangements for you to secure travel insurance should you chose to do so. We have yet to be snowed out, but it’s important you realize ACWC continues, regardless of the weather. If you fear that snow could be an issue, then you might consider the purchase of travel insurance on your own. Vetting coverages is the responsibility of the conferee as this changes from year to year with travel insurance. ACWC cannot refund conference registrations due to weather. ACWC is under contract with the Cove, and registrations must be paid and are non-refundable after a certain point.
AIG Insurance has contacted us and offers very affordable travel insurance (anywhere from $25-$90 depending on your age, amount to cover, and the state you live in). As we noted – the weather has never been an issue, but we don’t want you to lose your registration should you feel you cannot make the trip. Should you choose travel insurance it is your responsibility to check out the exact coverages. The Asheville Christian Writers Conference is not responsible for the rules and variations of travel insurance. We are not responsible for the return of conference fees due to weather.
You may contact AIG at 1-800-826-4919. ACWC makes no money or rewards from the sale of travel insurance. This number is provided merely as a convenience to our conferees. Should you choose to purchase the insurance it is your responsibility to flesh out all the details or locate other companies that might offer the same coverage.
The Cove’s Policy on Children
The Cove is a Christian Adult Retreat Center meant for personal restoration and conferences. Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to stay on campus. There are personal retreats and additional conferences running alongside ACWC. Please respect this policy. Of course, there is an exception to every rule. Teens age 16 and over are permitted to attend ACWC but only with an adult registered for the conference. The paying adult must attend all conference activities with their teen. Teens are not allowed outside the parameter of the conference. If you have a teen who wishes to attend ACWC please contact Cindy so she can secure the proper permissions for this attendee. The rate is the same as is an adult.
Please do not ask us about bringing your children. It will only force us to say no.
Unfortunately, ACWC cannot be used for family accommodations while our conference is in session. Three hotels are located at the entrance of the Cove where families can stay and then enjoy a long weekend in beautiful Asheville. All individuals must be registered and attending the conference in order to stay on the premises of the Cove. (This is not us, this is the 501(c )3 status requirements for The Cove.) We ask you respect that and not put us in a position to have to say no.
Cancellation Policy: Cancellations can be made prior to January 1 with full reimbursement. Cancellations after January 1 are non-refundable.
