When returning to the camp, the camper will turn the pass and their keys into the camp director. Reasons and times for leaving and returning will be given on Sunday at check in. All cars are to be kept locked from Sunday to Friday.
  • Discipline and Spiritual Problems: Counselors/Teachers are to be treated with respect. If there are problems that they and the camp director cannot handle together, they will take the situation to the Board of Directors. It will be the Board’s discretion whether or not the camper may remain at camp. The camp chaplain, with at least one other adult present, will be available to handle spiritual problems. There will also be a minimum of two adults present when disciplining.
  • Doctrine: Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was born of a virgin, crucified for our sins, resurrected on the third day, and sits at the right hand of God to intercede for us. We believe in the Trinity is God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one God – three persons. If campers accept Jesus as their savior at camp or prior to camp, a baptism class is made available. With parental consent, the campers will have the opportunity to be baptized on Friday at 11:30 am.
