Why did we decide to move Camp?
Based on the current situation relating to COVID-19, we have moved the dates of our camp to late summer in order to allow us greater time to prepare, learn about the Coronavirus, and ensure the safety of students and leaders attending.
What if we are still not allowed to meet in large groups?
It is our plan to have Wild Week and Beach Week in late summer, right before students return to school! If government and health organizations’ do not advise us to meet, then we will have to reconsider these dates. In that event, you would be able to get a full refund on your registration for Wild Week/Beach Week. We are actively looking for ways that we can minister to our students during this time and know that camp is something so many look forward to.
Will changes be made to camp to deal with COVID-19?
We are evaluating every part of our camp experiences in light of social distancing, restrictions on gathers, and the recommendation of officials. We have multiple alternate plans in place for transportation, recreation, worship, and activities. We will modify any and all parts of our camp experience in order to do our part to ensure the safety of students. We will make these decisions as we get closer to the dates of our camp.
Who can come to Wild Week?
Wild Week is for students who have completed 5th - 7th grade as of summer 2020.
What is the cost and what does it cover?
The cost of the trip is $195. There is a $50 deposit due at signup. The cost covers includes all travel, lodging, meals, t-shirt, rec, speaker, band, etc. The only thing not covered will be money for souvenirs or personal spending (parent discretion).
Where will we be staying?

We will be staying in lodges. The rooms have 7 bunk beds bunk beds. We will determine the number of students in each room as we get closer to camp, but it will be a maximum of 14. 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.
