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, narcotics, pornography, weapons of any kind, fireworks, or other combustible materials. Possession any of these items may result in immediate dismissal from camp.
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.
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.
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.
