When is pick-up and drop-off?

Registration for camp begins Monday at 8:00am at New Covenant Church. Campers will take a bus to camp and will return to New Covenant Church on Friday at 4:00pm. The children will present a short program of camp songs when they return.

Where is camp?

For the protection of the campers, we keep the location undisclosed.

What is the cost?

The camp is funded through donations, so the only cost for campers is a $10 registration fee.

What will they do at camp?

The camp schedule is full of non-competitive, non-threatening and fun activities that will allow them to learn something new and experience activities like swimming, ziplining, playing in the lake, riding horses and much more.

What is the adult to child ratio?

Each child is paired with an adult counselor and there is a strict ratio of one adult counselor to every two campers, so each child will get plenty of attention.

How do I know the adults are safe adults?

All counselors and staff are volunteers who have been screened and trained to work with children at risk.
