The theme this year is Passport to Jerusalem: Taking a journey with Jesus.

This year will highlight the different places that Jesus visited, in order to get to know Him on a personal level and learn what He did for us and for the glory of God. Your kids will have the experience of a lifetime as they collect their stamps, fill up their passport, get to know the Savior of the world, and grow in friendship with one another! You won’t want to miss out!

Trinity (Miller) Queen is married to her husband, Josiah Queen. Together they tour the United States, spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ through: Christian Music, Biblical Preaching, Prayer, and more! Trinity has grown up serving in the Kids’ ministry of her home church, “Waverly Life Church” in Waverly, IA. Trinity is BEYOND excited to be sharing her heart with us this summer, as we take a JOURNEY together to JERUSALEM, and learn about the many miracles that Jesus performed during His ministry. Don’t miss out!

What to bring:
Here is a list of items a camper will need to bring or may wish to bring to camp this summer: great attitude, bedding, (pillow and blankets or sleeping bag), toiletries, towels, Bible, pen, swimsuit (one-piece), and clothes that can get dirty at game time. A plastic bag to transport wet or dirty clothes home may be a good idea.

What not to bring:
Phones, laptops, tablets, kindle readers, tobacco, alcohol, vapes, narcotics, pornography, weapons of any kind, fireworks, or other combustible materials. Possession any of these items may result in immediate dismissal from camp.

CAMP RULES/GUIDELINES:

Mobile phone policy
Phones and other electronic devices will not be allowed to be used at camp. If they come with the camper, the device will be taken from them, placed in a protected area, and returned prior to departure from camp. The primary reason for this is attention. Our hope and goal is to encourage our students to take their focus off the electronic world and pay attention to God and the friends around them. If a parent is concerned about connectivity with their student, please speak with your youth director or pastor.

Dress code
Everyone must wear shoes when walking on the grounds.

Guys – Shirts must be worn at all times, except in the lake. Your shorts need to stay up around your waist. For swimming, guys must wear swim trunks that stay up, no speedos and no cut-offs.

Ladies – Your shirt and pants should touch. Your shorts or skirts should be at least mid-thigh. For swimming, ladies must wear modest one-piece suits. If you have a two-piece, you must wear a t-shirt over it.

Staying in dorms at night
Our desire is to protect students and provide the safest possible environment. Anyone found outside of their dorm building after hours will immediately forfeit the remainder of his or her camp experience. No warnings. No exceptions. No refunds.

Social skills
Fighting, intimidating, or verbally abusing anyone, camper or staff, is not permitted and may result in the camper losing their privilege of finishing camp. Public displays of affection are not allowed during camp.

Use the brain God gave you
When you make decisions during camp week, use common sense and treat other people the way you would want to be treated. Also, show respect for the campgrounds.
