These numbers are for EMERGENCY USE ONLY. Please do not ask your child to call you during camp. If there is an emergency at camp, the director will contact you.

What if My Child Takes Medications? Is My Child Required to Have Head Check for Lice?
All medications must be properly labeled and included on the health form. Medications will be collected at check-in and will be administered by a registered nurse. Allergies must be reported on the health form, and those campers with food allergies will meet with the camp cook at check-in time. All campers are required to have a head check for lice upon entering camp. This will be done under the supervision of the camp nurse. If a camper is found to have lice, the child will be sent home. Refunds or carryover fees will be considered on a case by case basis.
Should I send money with my child?
Faith Adventures Camp will not be responsible for any money brought by a camper. A suggested maximum amount of $20 should cover daily canteen and mission offering for the week.
What if I need to leave early or come late to camp?
One of the significant faith experiences of camp is becoming a part of an intentional Christian community. Campers are expected to remain at camp for the entire camp session. Leaving camp for even a few hours or arriving late is disruptive to the entire camp community. For the safety and well being of all campers, unless there is an emergency, plan for your camper to stay at camp without interruption.
Why should I attend Faith Adventures Camp?
Camp is a safe place to explore who God has created you to be. It is guided by caring, trained leaders. Camp gets us out in nature, away from computers, video games and TV and all our “stuff”. It’s Sabbath time – to relax, look at stars, experience the wonder of creation. Camp is a time to create and learn new things – crafts, dramatic arts, music, worship and outdoor skills – you name it! Camp is a Christian community where we learn to live together in God’s world. Camp teaches you to cope with life’s obstacles, to become leaders, to think outside the box. Camp celebrates diversity… no matter what your gender, color or economic circumstances, whether you’re from a big city or a small town, your beautiful spirit is welcome.
Can someone else pick my child up from camp?
For the safety and protection of all campers, any camper being picked up by someone other than the parents/guardians listed on the registration form, MUST have written permission or verifiable approval through the camp coordinator.
Is my child allowed to bring a cell phone?
Cell phones are a disruption to the faith experience. They are also costly, and Faith Adventures does not want to risk the possibility of loss or theft of a cell phone. If your child does bring a cell phone it will be collected at check-in and kept by the camp director until check out. Faith Adventures is not responsible for any stolen electronic devices.
Will you be posting pictures or videos of my child at camp?
Pictures and videos may be posted once camp has ended. These photos and videos will include ONLY those campers who have signed a media release form allowing Faith Adventures to use such media for news publication or promotional materials for church camp. This includes use of such material in newspapers, flyers, and on the Internet.
What is the policy for driving my own car to camp?
High school campers who are 16 or older and have a valid driver's license may drive their own vehicle to camp, but they will not be allowed to use the vehicle during the stay at camp. The vehicle must be locked and the car keys turned in to the camp director/coordinator upon arrival who will store the keys for safe keeping.
