All Family Camp, All the Time
We are excited to offer "All Family Camp, All The Time" this summer at Mt. Cross! Watch the video to learn more about how the summer will be structured, the precautions we are taking to keep everyone safe, and then check out the information below to get your family registered for Family Camp at Mt. Cross!
This year, we'll be having Family Camp all summer long! Families will have the option to stay one night, two nights, or even every night in the summer if they want, and counselors will be assigned to a family to be their "host" for their time at camp. Your counselor will be ready to do "all the things" that make camp, camp - leading Bible studies, playing games, singing songs, doing arts and crafts, creating relationships with campers, and sharing God's love with everyone - but it will look a bit different than a "normal" summer, because families will have the option to take advantage of everything that camp offers every day they are here, or they could inform their counselor they would like to have a low-key, unprogrammed/unstructured morning, afternoon, or entire day.
We are excited to be able to offer camp in this unique way this summer and cannot wait to have you be a part of it!
Plan Your Family Camp Experience in 3 Easy Steps:
Step 1: Choose your Dates
The first day of camp is Monday, June 14, and the last night to stay is Thursday, July 22. This calendar shows which accommodations are available each day. It will be updated on a daily basis, around 9 am and 6 pm, so be sure to have some additional dates in mind in case your first choice isn't available.
Step 2: Choose your Housing
As part of our efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Families will be housed together in their own space, with their own restroom. We will allow 8 families onsite on any given day.
Capacities for each space are:
Lower Jensen: 2-5 people
Evergreen: 2-26 people
Madrone: 2-10 people
Campground*: 2-15 people
You can learn more about our facilities by clicking here.
Prices are calculated on a per-person, per-night basis, plus housing, and includes meals while you are at camp. You can refer to the interactive chart below to figure your family's total price. There is no charge for children ages 0-2. However, please do include them on your registration form. While there is nothing that says you have to eat the camp's food, please note that not eating meals at camp will not reduce the price.
*The campground can accommodate up to 2 RVs/campers. Please note on your registration form if you will be bringing your RV/camper.
Step 3: Fill Out & Send In Your Paperwork
Download, fill out, and return the Family Camp Registration Form to begin the registration process. You can fill it out online, save it, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or print it out and mail it to Mt. Cross Ministries, PO Box 387, Felton, CA 95018. Registrations will be processed as they arrive, so emailing it increases your chances of getting your preferred dates and accommodations.
Once we have processed your registration, you will be emailed a registration confirmation and invoice. Additionally, you'll be emailed the Pre-Arrival COVID Symptom Check Form and Packing List 15 days prior to your arrival.
Payments and Financial Information
When your registration is confirmed, you will be emailed an invoice. To fully register for Family Camp, you will need to pay a non-refundable deposit of $100.00. If you would like us to set up a 3-payment plan schedule for you, we are happy to do so (just note this on your registration form or send us an email to request this before paying your deposit). Final payment is due 14 days prior to your arrival.
Cancellations made 30 days or more from your arrival date are eligible for a full refund minus the non-refundable deposit.
Cancellations made less than 30 days but more than 14 days from your arrival date are eligible for a refund of half the total balance minus the non-refundable deposit.
Cancellations made less than 14 days your arrival date are not eligible for a refund.
Special consideration may be given in the event of illness or other extenuating circumstances. Cancellations due to a member of your immediate household contracting COVID-19 or under physician-directed quarantine before attending camp are eligible for a full refund, less a $50 administrative fee.
So what is there to do at camp?
While no two days will look the same this summer, there are lots of activities in which you can partake while you are here! There's Alpha (morning worship) and Omega (evening campfire worship), Bible study, hiking, the challenge course, arts and crafts, archery, volleyball, horseshoes, basketball, swimming, and field games. Additionally, each evening will have an "all camp activity" (socially distanced and masked), and your family will have time to visit the Trading Post each day so you can get snacks and Mt. Cross swag.
New this year will be a Talent Show on both Tuesday and Saturday evenings! If you'll be at camp on one/both those nights, you're encouraged to bring your instrument, artwork you've created, poetry, sing a song, etc. God has blessed all of us with incredible gifts and talents, and this is your chance to share them with what could be the most supportive audience for whom you'll ever perform!
