Summer Camp

Every day at CONNECT Christian Camp is filled with activities, fun and friends.

But nights are also an opportunity for campers to get even more out of their Christian camp experience. Main sessions, campfires, worship, big group games and family group times make each day at camp full of fun.

This year our EPIC camps will give your child a more unique camp experience while giving your family the flexibility you need to pick the week that works best in your schedule.

Think of it as 3 sessions of camp (EPIC Elementary, EPIC Middle School & EPIC High School) all running at the same time to give your child and your family a better camp experience!

Info for Epic Camps

Drop off is on Sunday at 5 pm.

When you arrive, go straight down the main road to the Assembly Building. Go to the cafeteria and check-in with camp staff. After check-in we will serve a light meal for campers.

At check-in, you will receive your bunk assignment, camp T-shirt, and a wristband that must be worn during the camper’s entire stay at camp.

Please bring: Campers will need bedding, (twin sheets, blankets, pillow or sleeping bag), toiletries, towel, bathing suit, (one piece for girls, trunks for boys), play clothes, pajamas, tennis shoes, Bible, flashlight, sunscreen and bugspray. Closed toe shoes are suggested for general camp use, flip flops or sandals may be worn to the pool. *6th-12th graders should bring one nicer outfit for an evening banquet.

Medical Stuff: The camp first aid care giver will be at the check-in site and available to receive camper medications. Please have written instructions about all the child’s medications. All medications must be in their original container.

Canteen: Our Canteen is a snack bar that camper’s will visit twice per day. Each item is $1 and camper’s may get up to 2 items per visit to the Canteen. If you did not already purchase a Canteen Card at registration, you may purchase a Canteen Card at check-in. Please bring cash or check made out to Connect Christian Camp. Any money remaining on Canteen Cards at the end of the camp week is donated to our summer mission, Crossroads Mission.

Missions: All summer, each of our camps will learn about Crossroads Mission! Each camper will have the opportunity to give to this mission through their Canteen Cards throughout the week.

Pick-up is at 11:00 am, Friday, at your designated pick-up point, which will be told to you at the time of check-in. Don’t forget to pick up medications from the first aid care giver.

Remember, we have instituted a “No Cell Phones” policy to meet industry standards. Please make sure your camper has another way to take pictures if they choose to do so and that all cell phones stay home or go home at check-in.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
