WHAT WE EXPECT OF EACH OTHER
Camp would not happen without our Adult Sponsors, our Families, or our Campers.
Our adult sponsors are volunteers who have a passion for Jesus and a heart for youth ministry. They not only go to camp, they also go through camp — together with the campers. Sponsors attend the morning, daytime, and evening activities and bible studies, they eat family-style at the same tables, and they stay in the cabins with the campers. They get up earlier and stay up later than campers to ensure everyone has the best possible experience. Each sponsor must undergo a FBI background check and sexual abuse awareness training to qualify for the position. They are there to ensure the safety and well-being of campers and to be a source of encouragement and support.
Our families are the ones who love their kids enough to send them to camp! Families prepare their kids so that camp is a success. This means talking to them about what’s appropriate and what’s not. It means ensuring everything is packed that needs to get packed (and leaving behind what needs to be left behind, too). If there’s an emergency or behavioral issue, our families will drive to camp in the middle of the night to pick up their camper. Our families share the responsibility for getting our kids and their stuff to and from camp, usually by driving in a caravan on the first and last days of camp.
Our campers are the ones who … attend camp! Families and sponsors do their bit so we can go, but in the end it comes down to each individual camper to make camp a great experience. Campers are to always be mindful of one another’s safety and integrity, and to follow three simple rules:
1. Please remember your behavior reflects on your family, on your church, on Christians generally, and on the God whom you purport to serve! Honor these relationships by your thoughts, words, and deeds, and by what you do as well as what you leave undone.
2. Don’t break any civil laws.1
3. Obey the moral law.2
1. Failure to obey the civil law will result in being ejected from Camp and can potentially result in prosecution.*
2. Failure to obey the moral law will also result in being ejected from Camp!*
* Parent/guardians will be responsible for picking you up, no matter what time of day or night.
