Where will my student be staying? Students will stay in cabins during the weekend with students in the
same grade and the same gender. All cabins are heated/air conditioned and are split into pods.
Depending on the size of the cabin, a pod can sleep anywhere from 24-50 people (there will be one
leader assigned to every 12-15 students) each has a bathroom with a minimum of two sinks, two toilets,
and two showers. All small group leaders accompanying students are trained and background checked.
Medical Releases – Does it really matter? Each student will need to bring a signed copy of the medical
release or have a parent sign one during drop off. We want to take the best care of your student. If there
were an emergency, the medical release form would allow us to provide the necessary care for your
student. To best protect your student, a signed medical release form must be completed in order for them
What will students eat during the weekend? Students will be provided a hot meal for dinner Thursday,
Breakfast, lunch and dinner Friday, and breakfast and lunch Saturday. Between meals and large group
session, a light snack will be provided for each student. Students will also have the option to purchase
additional snacks should they desire to. The camp can accommodate most dietary needs, but they need
to be notified no later than 2 weeks prior to the camp start date. If the camp cannot accommodate the
specific dietary need/restriction, they will recommend that the student come with individually packed
meals that the camp will store in the kitchen and reheated during their mealtime.
Can my student bring food or snacks? To avoid attracting insects and small animals, we ask that students
do NOT bring any food or drinks besides water into the cabins. Students will be given plenty of time to
eat and snack in designated areas.
Can students request to be switched? We will work very hard to make sure students are in a group with
people they know. Changes to small group assignments are handled on an individual and case by case
