Quite possibly the best five days your kid will experience this year.
It’s a bold statement, but we have evidence to back it up. Last year, over 400 kids had the time of their lives at one of our MISSION summer camps and we’re planning for even better experiences this year. We know that five days at camp will often be five days a kid will remember for the rest of their lives.
Welcome to Summer Camp 2017!
Frequently Asked Questions
Because it is awesome. Need another reason? Okay. We believe in small groups. We believe that relationships are important. Every week, your child has the opportunity to participate in a small group led by the same small group leader. This consistent relationship with them and their peers can lead to healthy growth relationally and spiritually. Camp is extended time for a small group leader to invest in his/her group. Actually, a small group leader will get an entire year's worth of time with his/her group while at Camp. We see Camp as a very strategic week.
Not unless you want to. When you register, you have the option of paying in full or just paying the non-refundable deposit per child registered. The remainder will be due by May 28th. Your registration confirmation email will provide a link for paying the balance of camp registration.
Yes! We do our best to offer partial scholarships to all students who apply, but funds are limited. Once you register for camp (and pay the deposit), you will get a confirmation email with a link to our scholarship application. All scholarship applications are due by April 16th! Please contact us if you have additional questions about scholarships at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of course you can! We believe this weekend is a huge investment in the next generation. There are many students who experience the amazing environment of Camp every year because of the generosity of people like you. Whether it’s $50 applied to one student’s tuition or $500 applied to several – every bit helps.
Absolutely! We love it when our students invite their friends – especially if they don’t attend church at all. We do our best to room students by grade and gender, so be sure to have the guest mention that they’d like to be grouped with your student and we’ll do what we can to make that happen.
Transportation will be by chartered bus. Please do not plan to drop off/pick up your student at camp unless there is some special need. We cannot offer discounts if students don’t ride the bus.
Our youth pastors, background-checked interns and volunteers from MISSION, and the camp staff, admins, nurses, and interns.
Drop off and pick up will be at MISSION Community Church. Exact date/times vary on the camp, but this information will be included in the confirmation email when you register.
These camps are designed specifically for our youth. Parents cannot attend apart from serving as counselors. If you are interested in being a camp counselor, please contact us.
Yes, although we cannot guarantee it will arrive before the students leave the camp. Information on sending email can be found in the Parent Info Pack (available in April).
Your child will be in a gender-specific cabin with other students in his/her grade, with several leaders per cabin. Your child will need to bring a pillow and sleeping bag.
4th/5th & Jr. High students should bring $25-50 for snacks and meals on the road. We strongly recommend that our younger students bring their money in a Ziploc bag with their name inside (not written on the bag—it can rub off) to be held by their counselor. We have had issues with students losing their money in the past. High School students should bring $50-100 for meals on the road and some incredible (yet optional) camp activities not included in the camp cost.
Students will not be allowed to have electronic devices during camp, with the exception of digital cameras. If a student must call home, leaders will have their phones available. If a student brings their cell phone, we will require for it to remain packed away during the trip. Students may use their phones to contact parents regarding pick up during the drive home.
Please bring all medications in a ziploc bag with the child’s name written on it. We recommend packing just what they will need, not the whole bottle. The camp nurse will dispense the medication. We will provide acetaminophen as needed if parents have given approval.
Yes, especially if your child tends to get hungry at night. Dinners are relatively early. All drinks MUST have a twist top lid (no open cans). Students can also purchase items from the camp snack bar.
Yes, but food is served buffet-style, so to an extent campers must be able to avoid the foods they’re allergic to on their own. If your child requires a restricted diet, please let us and the camp know in advance.
That’s fine. Send an email to email@example.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can!
