Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What does my registration fee include?
A. Two nights-- this year, Friday and Saturday, December 18 and 19-- at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, plus a group dinner on Saturday night, and three days of programming for adults and kids.
The fee is per room, not per person. (So if you and a friend are staying in a Standard Double, it works out to $210/person.)
All other meals (and your drinks) are up to you. The Ace has a fantastic restaurant, cafe and bar on-site, but we're also not far from downtown Palm Springs if you want to get out and see how the locals live.
Q. Is there childcare available?
A. Yes! We run programs for kids aged 4-12 for most of the day on Saturday and in the morning on Sunday. There's also a kids' movie night on Saturday so that parents can relax for a few hours while little ones are entertained.
Q. Can I get a room near my friends'?
A. We can't make any guarantees, but if you have special room requests please let us know and we'll talk to the Ace about how to make them happen.
Q. Can I get a room for one night only?
A. Sure! Email Zan to talk about how.
Q. What's the programming like?
A. Diverse! We try to offer something for everyone-- and we encourage you to participate in as much or as little of it makes sense for you. We start each morning with a yoga class, and the days include things like alternative Shabbat services, local hikes, live music, and a handful of classes and workshops. (In the past they've been things like making seedbombs, learning how to read palms, and even one year a storytelling workshop in the Ace's pool.) If you've got something you want to teach, get in touch! We love to have community members contribute to Exodus every year.
