FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. What is the schedule?

2. WHO IS THE SPEAKER?

Chris currently serves as the Communications and Young Adults Pastor at Midway Church in Texas, and formerly served as the Children's Ministries Director there. A graduate of Baptist Bible College, Chris is a fun, energetic, and engaging speaker kids will love. Chris is an aspiring yo-yoer, and always wears the coolest shirts. ​

3. What if my kid has never been to camp?

That's totally ok! There will be plenty of other kids experiencing camp for the first time this week as well. We think that means they'll have even more fun! We believe camp is a week where LIFE CHANGE happens and there is no better way for a kid to spend their summer than experiencing the LIFE CHANGE that knowing Jesus brings. They may be scared (you may be more scared than they are), but our team of volunteers and staff, along with the kids and leaders from your own church, will make sure they have the best week ever!

4. Can i come for a visit?

Absolutely! While camp gives kids a chance to experience LIFE CHANGE and GROW in their relationship with Christ alongside their peers, growing alongside their family is also important. We would love for you to visit during one of our evening sessions and worship right alongside your kids, or enjoy a meal with them and their friends. This can be a great way to encourage them in their faith journey and keep the home-sickness away. 

If you stay too long, though, we'll have to start charging you...

5. Will there be a nurse at camp? What if my child is on medication?

First-aid certified volunteers will be serving as lifeguards during the week, but there will not be a nurse at camp.

If your child requires a full-time nurse to be present, please speak to your Children's Director about bringing one along with your group. Your Children's Director may also be able to assist in the distribution of daily medications if your child needs assistance in that area.

6. Can my kid bring electronics?

Kids Camp is a great time for your kids to take a break from their electronics and focus on growing in their relationship with Christ. However, electronics are allowed at the discretion of your church's Children Director. For emergencies during the week, please use the list of contacts provided by your Children's Director, or contact the Camp Director, Tyler Carleton, at 417.655.7439
