Some Basic Camp Rules:

You must agree to the below before coming to camp!

This camp is staffed by experience counselors who volunteer their time and energy each year to insure that your camp is safe, fun, Christian, and one that many wish to come to year after year.

Therefore;

  • We expect all to follow directions and schedule.
  • We expect sickness and injuries to be reported immediately to a counselor.
  • We expect no one to leave the group on their own.  If you are upset about something then you need to tell a counselor.  If you need to go somewhere or go to get something, tell a counselor, do not take off by yourself.
  • Christian judgment and speech is expected.
  • We expect everyone to have fun and learn Christian Values!

HELPFUL PACKING TIPS:

  • Have all items clearly labeled with their first and last name (including shoes, socks, toiletries, etc).
  • ALC requires that everyone wears “closed toed shoes”.
  • All clothing should also be able to get dirty and messy.
  • It helps campers if their daily clothes are arranged in separate zip lock (gallon) plastic bags by day or ensemble for ease of changing each day.
  • Have their toiletries in a clear plastic bag with their name on it.
  • Have all prescription medication in a clear plastic zip lock bag with their name on it.  See What to do about medicines section below for more information.
  • Socks should be above the ankle to prevent blisters.
  • Recommend two pairs of closed toed shoes, a pair of tennis shoes for regular wear and a pair of shoes for water activities.

CAMPERS SHOULD NOT BRING THE FOLLOWING:

  • No Food or Candy
  • No Electronics including Games, I-Pods, Cell Phones, Pagers, Radios, Tape Players, TVs, video’s
  • Non-prescription (over-the-counter medicine) or Illegal drugs
  • Tobacco products / Vaping products
  • Guns, Knives, Bows
  • Alcohol
  • Clothing with vulgar or offensive graphics
  • Expensive jewelry or clothing

Campers tend to over pack, so let us remind parents and campers that this is not a “dressy” camp – please do not send nice clothes! Anything you want returned home should have your child’s first and last name clearly marked– no initials please.

What to do about medicines:

ALL MEDICINES must be registered and given to the Camp Nurse or Director.

Have all prescription medication in a clear plastic zip lock bag with their name on it.  Prescriptions must be in their original containers and be clearly labeled with the campers name and the amount to be taken daily.  We highly recommend sending only the amount for the time at camp plus a few days.

Note:  This is a Christian Camp and Christian attitudes and acts are demanded and expected.   The Camp Director has authority to go through any campers belongings and if banned items are found the Director has authority to send the camper home.  As well, the Camp Director reserves the right to reprimand or dismiss any camper who does not follow the rules.
