Where will we be staying?          
Doe River Gorge - 220 Doe River Gorge Rd. Hampton, TN 37658

 We will be staying in lodges. Each cabin is made up of several sleeping rooms. The rooms have 3-5 bunk beds. There will be 6-10 students in each room as well as one leader. The sleeping rooms have a bathroom with two sinks, two showers and two toilets. Food is not allowed in the lodge. Students may request one person they would like to stay with at camp. Our goal is to put students with their friends and we work hard to make that happen.

What are color teams?
During the majority of camp students spend time with their cabin mates and their friends. For our Rec time and morning worship we divide students into color teams they compete on. Students will be paired with at least one friend on their color team.

What happens in medical situations?
We will be traveling with a licensed nurse who will handle medical situations. We also require all students to check in all medications (prescription and non-prescription) to our staff for safety.

What happens with phones?
Students will be allowed to bring their phones with them on the bus ride to and from camp. All students will be asked to send a message to their parents when we arrive to let them know we are safe and then will check their phones in for the remainder of camp. Phones will be returned when we get on the bus to come home. Service is very limited at the camp location but our staff will have their phones on at all times.

Who is organizing this camp?
Wild week is completely run by and organized by First Baptist Concord. We work in conjunction with Doe River Gorge who rents their facility to our church.
