When is High Def?

February 15-16, 2019. See Schedule tab for more details.

Who can attend High Def?

High Def is designed for students in grades 6-12. Students will be integrated for large group sessions, but will be grouped by age and gender in small groups and host homes. All attendees must register.

Are there lodging accommodations for High Def attendees?

High Def is an overnight event. Students will spend Friday night at host homes with their small group.

What are host homes?

During High Def Weekend, trusted members of the Preston Trail family graciously open their homes to host a small group of high school or middle school students. We run background checks on all adults present in a host home to ensure student safety.

Can we request a group or small group leader?

Yes. When you register your teen for High Def, you will have the opportunity to request a certain small group leader and friend(s) to be included in your student’s group. We do our best to accommodate each request, but the best way to ensure your student is grouped with friends is to serve as a host home and host his/her small group.

What does High Def cost?

Prior to January 1: $90

January 1-30: $120

Registration closes January 30, or when all spots are filled.

What is included with High Def Registration?

Registration includes recreation supplies and activities, a High Def participant T-shirt, and meals on Saturday.

What should I bring to High Def?

  • Weather-appropriate clothes, shoes, phone chargers, pillows, sleeping bags/blankets/towels, small bag for personal items at church, and bathroom essentials for the entire weekend.
  • Beverages and snacks to share with your group. A two-liter bottle of soda and cookies or chips are perfect.
  • Spending money for the High Def Store.

Can my registration be cancelled or transferred?

If you find that you cannot attend High Def, you can request a refund up to January 15. After that we cannot give refunds. Tickets are non-transferrable due to host home assignments. If you have any questions concerning cancellations, please email

Will childcare be available?

No. Families are extremely important to us, but we are unable to accommodate children at the conference.

Register to Serve

Food Allergies and Restrictions

You will have an opportunity to tell us about food allergies and restrictions when you register. We cannot guarantee that your host will be able to accommodate all food allergies and restrictions, so you may need to provide your own food.

Pet Allergies

Host Homes often have pets. If you tell us about a pet allergy on your registration, we will do our best to place you in a host home without pets, but it may limit our ability to accommodate friend and group requests. Our ability to accommodate pet allergies is limited to the families who are hosting. The best way to ensure your allergies are accommodated is to host your small group at your home.
