At this time, we are not able to handle those with special needs that require personal and constant supervision and care. Please know that we will do our best to support your child, but all campers must be fully able to participate in the camp programing.
Parents will be contacted if there is a continuous problem of non-participation in the program, bullying, stealing, telling off-color stories or using inappropriate language, or any other behavior that detracts from the Christian and wholesome environment the camp wishes to provide. Profanity is prohibited. Violent, threatening, dishonest, dangerous, negative or otherwise unsatisfactory behavior on the part of the camper could lead to his or her dismissal from camp. We ask all staff/volunteers and campers to abide by this statement, “I will honor God and others with my words and actions”.
