We’re so excited you’ve decided to join us for a fun-filled week as we focus on BRAVE – Joshua 1:9. We’ll discover we can be strong & courageous, not because of the strength of our own roar but because we have a heavenly Dad who is with us wherever we go, and whose roar surpasses all!

SKC INFO - NEED TO KNOW

SPONSORS REQUIREMENTS

Each church will need to provide a minimum of one sponsor for every 7 campers of each gender with a minimum of 2 sponsors per gender (this is for safety reasons in case of emergencies). Every sponsor must be *19 years of age or older and will need to have a completed background check through ABSC and completed the MinistrySafe Abuse Awareness Training by June 5. *Sponsors 18 years of age are allowed on a case-by-case basis and require a letter of recommendation from the church’s pastor.

A MinistrySafe training link will be sent to each sponsor following their individual online registration to complete the abuse awareness training. If a sponsor has completed the MinistrySafe training within the past two years they will not have to complete the training again. If your leaders have taken the awareness training at your church within the last year the leader or church group leader may submit their certificate to the camp director.

Please note for the safety of your kids we ask each sponsor to rotate with your group during the scheduled activities. Sponsors will be assigned to a specific track to assist the track leader. We also encourage the sponsors to travel to a Bible Study class with one of their group grade teams to assist the Bible Study Leaders.

 

HOUSING

Each church will be assigned a cabin for boys and a cabin for girls. Each cabin holds up to
24 people. Churches may be assigned to a cabin with other churches based on the number of campers attending. You will recieve your housing specifics during check-in. Linens are not provided, so each person will need to bring twin bedding, a pillow, and towels.

 

GROUP BIBLE STUDY/RECREATION TIMES

Campers will be divided into teams/Bible study groups based on the grade they just completed and assigned a team color. Take time to double check with the parents which school grades their children have just completed. We want to have the campers in the correct Bible Study.

 

MISSIONS OFFERING

Our missions offering for the week will go to Pure Water, Pure Love which provides missionaries with water filters that supplies families with clean water. For more info visit www.wmu.com/pwpl.

This is time designated for you to follow-up with your church group after worship each evening. Use this time to recap what the kids studied or have your own church group devotional/activity time.

 

CAMPERS WITHOUT PERSONAL INSURANCE

If a camper requires medical attention while at camp, the camper is responsible for the cost. If the camper does not have insurance, the sponsoring church will be the financially responsible party.

Email and attach ministry card with any special needs which we should be aware of prior to camp to the camp director. Please specify if it is a mobility, dietary, housing, or emotional/spiritual need and include the week you will be attending camp.

 

ILLNESSES AT CAMP

We will work with church leaders to handle cases of illness at camp on a case-by-case basis. We must ask that campers displaying flu-like symptoms be sent home for the safety of all campers. Please do not bring children who are already showing symptoms of sickness before you leave home.

 

CAMP NURSE

We will have a camp nurse on site to help with minor injuries and to dispense medications. We recommend that you bring band aids & anti-itch spray for minor scrapes and cuts. Medications
for your child will need to be put in a ziplock bag with your child’s name, medication
dispensation form with detailed instructions/times, and the parent’s name/phone number.
