Because we’re at camp to learn more about our relationship with our Heavenly Father, it will
also be important to grow in our relationship with each other by participating in all camp
activities. It is also to be expected that each camper will be helping with cleaning up and
other chores that may be necessary.
If a camper has food allergies it is the parent/guardian's responsibility to contact the cook prior to camp, discuss the camper's need and provide food substitutions if necessary. It is the cook's responsibility to provide a menu and work with the families to determine what substitutions are necessary and reasonable. This only applies to medical needs and not food preferences.
- No boys in girls’ cabin areas and no girls in boys’ cabin areas.
- Kitchen food supply areas are also restricted.
- Additional restricted areas may be determined by the directors.
We’d rather you use this time to build up your relationship with God instead of building a
romantic pursuit. Stay public and take a break from hand holding, hugging, kissing, etc.
Because we’re taking time out from the usual activities that might distract us, please leave at
home any items such as cell phones, MP3 players, radios, portable game systems, etc.
Items such as tobacco, alcohol and drugs are prohibited, as campers should be receiving a
spiritual high that will surpass any man-made chemical.
Please turn in a list of and all medications (prescription and over the counter) that the camper
will be needing during the time at camp, and the nurse will make sure campers receive them
at the appropriate times. Exceptions can be made for asthma medications, so please discuss
any concerns with the nurse.
