Campers

Monday, June 19 – Friday, June 23, 2017
For those who have completed grades 3, 4 and 5
$180 per camper

What to bring

  • Bible and a pen
  • Sleeping bag and pillow
  • Clothes for all weather (5 days worth): shorts, pants, T-shirts, long sleeve, jacket (clothes will get dirty and or wet, so please pack play clothes, not nice clothes)
  • Swimsuit, towel and sunscreen: we do play outside a lot, so sunscreen is a really good idea… we are in the woods, so bug spray is a good idea too…there are some games we play where “hiding” is important… while “camouflage” is not required, it is a really fun idea!
  • Shoes: tennis shoes, maybe a pair of sandals
  • Personal hygiene items: toothbrush, toothpaste, body soap, shampoo, bath towel
  • Laundry bag for dirty clothes: an extra bag campers can use to place their dirty clothes in at the end camp – like a garbage bag
  • Water bottle
  • A good attitude
  • Flashlight (optional)
  • Small fan (optional)
  • Disposable camera (optional)
  • Money for the snack bar (optional), recommended $10-20

It is a good idea to label personal belongings with camper’s first and last name. Lost and found items (of which there are always many) will be held for a month before being donated to a non-profit. Please use the contact form to inquire about any lost items after camp

What NOT to bring

  • Candy, soda pop, or extra snacks (unless dietary needs require it)
  • Cell phones, iPhones, Android phones, etc.
  • Electronic games
  • Radios, CD players, mp3 players, iPods

  • Over the Counter Medications: these are provided by the nurse as necessary
  • Prank or gag materials
  • Knives of any kind, firearms, fireworks, tobacco, drugs or alcohol
  • A bad attitude

Camper Behavior Expectations

The Kids Camp staff expects every camper’s behavior to be respectful:  respectful of the staff as well as respectful toward one another (fellow campers). We think that this models the great commandment of Jesus – Love God and Love Others. We get a whole week of showing each other how to love “up” to God and to adults as well as “across” to our friends and fellow campers. So to sum it all up in one word: RESPECT.

We realize campers will make mistakes and will need gentle correction (even adults need this from time to time). Mistakes are okay. The staff will not overreact to mistakes. What makes a respectful environment is how we all respond to correction; positively or negatively. Negative response to correction will not create an environment of respect. But a positive response to correction will. We encourage positive responses to any gentle correction needed while at camp!

Mailing Address

We provide the address to camp to allow family and friends to be able to write letters to campers while at camp. We make it a big deal when campers get mail, so we encourage family and friends to send mail.
