THEME

'Apart from Me you can do nothing." John 15:5

“Apart from Me you can do nothing" John 15:5
This summer we will explore the idea that it is God alone who sustains us, it is He who empowers us and it is for His glory that we do it all. We are not alone on this journey as we struggle to survive in a harsh and untamed environment. In fact, every breath we take and every beat of our heart is a gift from Him. The world is telling us to believe in ourselves, but God's Word tells us to believe in Him.

Please ensure that medical forms are filled out completely. All campers' medications must be in their original containers, labeled with name and clear instructions.

We supply masters for the registration form, confirmation notice, medical form, etc. that you will need to register and confirm your campers. You will receive a $37.00 reduction in camp fees for each camper. The individual camp fee for 2014 is $401, so that means you pay only $364 for each camper by registering as a group. Plus, each camper and counselor will receive a free camp tee shirt, a free camp photo, and free access to recreation activities. We will also provide you with a free promotional video and posters to get the word out to your students and parents.

Your Part:
1. You decide how many camper spots you want to reserve and mail or fax your Letter of Intent.
2. You secure the spots by signing the contract(s) and making a non-refundable deposit of $35 per camper.
3. You collect the completed registration cards and money from your campers.
4. You give the campers the confirmation information, medical forms, etc.
5. You supply one counselor for each 7 campers. There is no charge for the counselors to attend camp.
