Please do not arrive at camp before 2 PM. Registration takes place on Sunday afternoon the week your camper is attending (or Wednesday at 2 PM for Ao-Wa-Kiya First Class, Week 2).
Counselors will be at their cabins at 2 PM to hand out numbered tags. Campers may place luggage and sleeping bags on the cabin porch and take a tag to reserve a bunk. Tags will only be distributed to campers present at the cabin and bunks may not be reserved for campers arriving later. CABINS ARE NOT PREASSIGNED and it is important that campers desiring a cabin with friends arrive together. This method for cabin sign-up assures that campers get into a cabin with friends of their choice.
Check-in with the registrar begins at 2 PM at The Five Pines building. Campers with no medical concerns will turn in the medical health form and pay balances due at this time.
At registration, parents will be asked whether their camper has any meds and who will be picking them up on Saturday. Whoever picks up a camper on Saturday will be required to show identification matching the person who we have listed.
At around 3 PM, the camp bell will ring and campers may move into their selected cabins to begin their week at camp.
No medications are allowed in the cabins (this includes nutritional supplements and vitamins). Medications must be in original containers with your child’s name and dosage clearly labeled. Our medical staff will take great care to administer these medications accurately. During registration, you will turn in your camper’s medical form (or receive one to fill out if you didn’t bring one). PLEASE DO NOT SEND IN THE MEDICAL FORM; IT NEEDS TO BE BROUGHT TO CAMP WITH YOUR CAMPER.
Middle School and Elementary campers have chosen crafts during registration. They decide which order to attend them on Sunday evening. This helps your camper to sign up with their friends for crafts. High School campers choose an activity for each day of the week on Sunday evening.
ITEMS TO BRING
Suggestion! Label any item your child is bringing to camp with their name.
Bible, pen and paper, sleeping bag or bedding, pillow, modest clothing, shoes, sandals, bug repellent, flashlight, water shoes (Zebra mussels are still present in Stony Lake and they are sharp!) and modest swim wear. Girls: A one-piece swim suit is required (or a t-shirt to cover a two-piece), and a swim skirt/shorts are required to use the water obstacle course.
Suggestion! Label your child's clothing with their name.
No suggestive or immodest clothing is allowed.
Girls: No halter tops or spaghetti-strap tops. All tops must be long enough to be tucked in. Bras, bare shoulders, and cleavage are not allowed to be exposed. Skirts and shorts must be fingertip length. If legging-style pants are worn, shorts must be worn over them.
Guys: No tank tops, t-shirts/sweatshirts with sides cut out, or suggestive athletic wear. Underwear of any sort should never be showing.
Inappropriately dressed campers will be required to change.
ITEMS NOT TO BRING
Bad attitudes, candy, pop, water guns, knives, balloons, lasers, matches, fireworks, lighters, or personal electronic devices (including cell phones, iPods, and MP3 players). Electronics brought to camp will be turned into Senior Counselors until departure.
Pranks and defacing of God’s property (i.e. camp buildings and equipment) will not be tolerated and may result in dismissal from camp. The use of tobacco products, alcohol and illegal drugs are strictly prohibited.
Cell phones, computers, and media devices distract campers from the focus of camp, which is to build lasting relationships with others and God, and should not be brought to camp.
PICK UP TIME
Pick up is on Saturday at 10:00 AM (or Wednesday at 10:00 AM for Ao-Wa-Kiya First Class, Week 1). Parents must meet and pickup their campers at the cabin, where a camper release form must be signed.
Campers of driving age who drive a vehicle to camp must turn their keys into the camp office at the beginning of the week, and can pick them back up during departure.
New for 2017!
Mail Policy: We will only deliver emails, cards, & letters to campers during the week of camp. We are asking that no packages be sent, or dropped off. Exception: Any camper with a birthday during the week of camp they are attending can have packages deliver to them on the day of their birthday.
If a package arrives during the week of camp it will be held until Saturday for the camper during checkout.
Thank you for helping us with this new policy. We have had to implement this to keep food, and other items from cabin areas.
