I have applied, when will I know if my application is approved?

You will get an email when we receive your application. We do our best to have an answer for you within approximately 2 weeks. That time frame can be dependent upon your references getting back to us in a timely manner. If we have not heard from your references we will email them again. If we do not hear back from them after a second try we will let you know. At that point you can either speak with them to let them know we are trying to contact them or you send us a replacement reference. If you have further questions about your application, please email us at: registration@submissivejourneyweekend.com

Why do I need references?

SJW is a weekend designed to allow all s-types to let their hair down to be in a safe environment where we can be vulnerable, learn, grow and of course have fun. To that end we want to make sure that all attending are little letter people who share common goals for the weekend.

Are there scholarships available for SJW?

There are several scholarships each year. You can apply on the scholarships page.

When is my payment due?

Final payments are due no later than July 31, 2018 for payment plan.

How many people will be at SJW?

Attendance is capped at 40 people for 2018.

Who attends SJW? Is it all women? All men?

SJW is open to all along the gender identity and s-type spectrum.

My dominant wants to come along to learn too, is that ok?

SJW is set up for s-types and taught by s-types and is not open to Dominants/Owners/Masters/Tops.

Can I have my own room?

The cabin is not equipped for individual rooms. Attendees do sleep 2 to a bed; queen & king size beds. We make every effort to make sure our attendees are comfortable. However, we do ask that you try to be flexible.

Can I room with someone I know?

When filling out your questionnaire indicate in the “Anything else you need to tell us?” that you would like to room with someone in particular and their name. We will absolutely do our best to accommodate your request.

Do I need to bring my own sheets, pillow, towels?

Nope! Everything is provided for the weekend. If you have that pillow you just can’t sleep without though, of course you can bring it! 🙂

What DO I need to bring?

Changes of clothes, toiletries, etc. What you would normally take for a weekend away in a mountain cabin.

Also, please bear in mind that with nearly 40 people the amount of space for personal property is limited. Please bring only what you will need.

The PayPal link didn’t work, what email do I use on PayPal for payment?


Do I have to participate in every class, meal, etc.?

No, you get to set your schedule for this weekend. If you want to attend as many classes as possible then go for it! If you need to space things out, rest some, spend time in the hot tub then you do you! We support each other in taking care of ourselves throughout the weekend.

If I forget something can I go into town to get it?

No, once we are at the cabin we are there for the weekend unless there is an emergency.
