Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q:  When will registration be open?
A: Registration opens January 1 and will remain open untill three weeks before the camp date.  After that time call for space availability before registering.  When a week is full, we will indicate that on the Dates and Rates page and in the online registration.  We recommend early registration to confirm your desired date.

Q:  Do campers need to be Baptist to attend?  
A:  No, all are welcome to attend!  

Q: Can we register if we are not apart of a church group?
A: Yes, for boys camp, father-son, father-daughter, and mother-son.  Many of our campers come by themselves or with one or two friends.  

Q:  Can campers bunk together with their friends?
A:  Yes, if they are in the same age group up to a group of 4 boys during weeklong boys camp.  A pairing request form will be sent to you in an information e-mail and must be returned prior to arriving at camp for this to happen.

Q:  How much interaction do the different age groups have with each other during weeklong boys camp?
A:  The different age groups are seperated into different units, but may occasionally see each other at meals and camp wide programs.

Q:  How do you serve campers with food allergies or medical related food needs?
A:  Please contact our director prior to camp with any special instructions for food allergies.  We will gladly work with you and your child as much as possible.  

Q:   How do you deal with sensitive issues such as bed wetting?
A:   Our staff are trained to be very sensitive and encouraging when helping a boy who has wet his bed or with other sensitive issues.  We will wash the boys linens as discretely as possible.  If bed wetting is a current challenge we suggest packing overnight pull ups that resemble underwear.

Q:  Are medical physicals required?
A:  No, they are recommended if your camper hasn't had one within 24 months, but are not required to attend.

Q:  What if we don't have the camper's shot record? 
A:   Document what shots you know your child has had on the medical form.  At a minimum we suggest that campers have a tetanus booster within the last 5 years. 

Q:  How is medication administered? 
A:  We follow the American Camp Association's standards for medication administration.  Our trained staff will administer the medication as directed on the original packaging or prescription.  We have nurses available by phone when needed for questions.  Medical and medication forms will be included in the information e-mail after you register.

Q:  What if a child cannot swim?
A:  There is a shallow section in the pool and there is a basket ball goal next to the pool for those that do not wish to swim.  We require campers to pass a swim test before they can jump off the diving board.  Personal flotation devices are required at all times in the lake and are checked by our trained staff.
 
Q:  Can campers leave camp early? 
A:  Yes, however, we recomend that campers stay for the entire week to not enterupt their experience.  Early pickups must be documented on the waiver form and adults checking in campers on the first day of camp must confirm the early pick up time.

A:  Click here for a list of ways to contact your camper.


Q:  When do the camp sessions begin and end?
A:  Drop off and pick up times are listed on the registration forms and you will receive an information e-mail after your registration is processed with times and additional information.   For weeklong camp, drop off is at 10am on Monday and pick-up is Friday after lunch (in your information e-mail you will receive information and times about an optional parent meeting and picnic lunch with your child on Friday for weeklong camp).
