Registration Day: Summer Camp Registration is from 4:00-5:00pm on Sunday. When you arrive at camp head to the Dining Hall. Please have meds in original containers and marked with camper’s name to give to our Health Officer at registration. Campers will get their T-shirts and cabin assignments at registration, and after being checked in they can settle in to their cabins.
Closing Day: Summer Camp Check-out begins at 2:30pm on Friday (Tuesday for mini-camp). A closing celebration takes place at 3:00pm in the chapel. Get a glimpse of what your camper did throughout the week and meet their new friends. After singing and fun, campers are dismissed to their cabins to be picked up.
Our Staff: Our summer staff is what MAKES the experience for your kids, and we put lots of time and attention into selecting and training our summer staff. After scouring over 15 colleges and universities, we have personal interviews, and then bring them in for try-outs. The ones that make the cut have in-depth training before summer starts and refreshers throughout the summer to make sure we’re working with all our hearts! We are proud of our summer staff, and we know their love for the Lord will rub off on your campers.
