Frequently Asked Questions
Does this event replace Grandparents & Me / Mom & Me / Dad & Me?
Who can come to this weekend?
We envision an event that welcomes families to a site that holds a special place in the hearts of so many. Experience camp in a new way with the people you love the most! It is a weekend full of sharing, growing and learning… so let’s bring the whole family! Everyone is welcome. This event is designed with family in mind so, in its current state we are planning for families with elementary and middle schoolers in mind, but we are exploring options to keep older students engaged and involved as well.
Make this family-focused event a place that works for you. Can grandma and mom bring all the cousins? Yes! Can a group of dads bring all the kids camping? Yes! You got an RV during the pandemic and this sounds like a fun way for the family to use it? Come on! Your kids want to try summer camp but would love a weekend event that would allow you to introduce them to camp? This is it!
Where will we sleep?
It depends on what you register for.
RV/Tent Sites: If you want to ‘camp at camp’ then you have the option as you register to select tent camping or RV camping. We have 30 and 50 amp sites. You will need to provide all the gear and/or vehicle. We provide a site, a power source, and a sewer hook-up at RV sites. There is a comfort station at the camp ground, providing toilets, showers and laundry. The campground is on the Conference side of our 300 acre property.
Family Bunk Room: On the Conference side, some of our standard hotel rooms have been upgraded to Family Bunk Rooms. There is one single bed and another bunkbed that is a single over a full-size bed. This room can sleep four. Most of these rooms can be linked to another family bunk room by an interior door, so the double room count can go up to eight. Each of these rooms include a standard hotel bathroom with sink, toilet and shower. Linens and towels are provided for these rooms.
Lodge Bunk House: On the Camp side, our sleeping lodges can be subdivided into tiny rooms that contain 3 or 4 bunkbeds (sleeping 6 or 8) and a bathroom that has 2 sinks, a toilet and shower. Bedding and towels are not provided. This would be an excellent option for a church group of same gendered parents and kids, or a large family that includes several adults and kids. A ‘side’ of a sleeping lodge can be divided (or not) into 4 sections: 8 + 6 + 6 + 8= 28 beds on one side.
The event is $80 per person (over 5 years old), what does that include?
The cost includes all programming, 4 meals (breakfast Saturday to breakfast Sunday), and where you are sleeping (site, room or lodge). Once you have paid for the event, there shouldn’t be any other things to pay for… unless you make a trip to the camp store for some camp swag.
I want to bring all of my friends from church, but not everyone has tents or RV’s. Will we still be together?
Your room is just where you sleep. All of the activities include everyone, no matter what lodging option you choose.
Will there be events where the kids are supervised by camp staff and the adults are free?
Nope. This is family weekend, all activities are designed as family bonding experiences. Kids should be supervised by their adults at all times. Our camp staff will facilitate activities and worship experiences but you are in charge of your minors. No free-range kids at camp. All unattended children will be given a raccoon and a sharp s’mores stick.
How much walking will be involved in this weekend? Can we bring bikes? Can we bring golf carts?
We will be using both sides of our property for this event. So there will be some distance covered! Most families would be fine walking. Some families should at least have a vehicle that can cross the road, back and forth between the Conference side and the Camp side. Bikes, scooters and other manually-powered gear are welcome. Personal golf carts are permitted as means to cross the street and should not be used to navigate sidewalks and grass areas on property. Call and ask if you have a special circumstance. We can help you find out if you qualify for an exception.
