    At the end of each week we will send an email to the account that registered the camper which will have a link to the evaluation form. Please make sure you fill it out! If you don't receive it, please let us know.

  7. Are there any other forms I need to complete?

    Most required forms are already populated on our registration page and your registration won't be processed until they are completed.

    Yes. You may stay on-site in one of our lodge rooms while your youth are participating in camp programs for a price of $100. To prevent disruptions to our programming and your campers' experience, we ask that you leave all leadership responsibilities to our staff whether that's leading Bible study or enforcing camp procedures or organizing an all-camp game, but you're welcome to attend as a cheerleader and participant! We require all adults on-site to complete a background check. Please contact us for more information or to register.
