Summer Camp Frequently Asked Questions
What is the total cost per person and what does it include?
Total cost is $309/ person and it includes activities, room and board (4 nights lodging and 11 meals), camp materials, and camp T-Shirt.
When is the total cost due?
The final balance is not due until June 1st but you will need a $50/person (non-refundable & non-transferable) deposit paid as soon as possible but no later than February 15th in order to register and reserve your spot. We will receive registrations until all weeks are full. First come first served. If final balance payments are not received by June 1st in full, a late fee of $5 per day per registration will be charged.
Where is camp located?
Camp is located on the campus of Anderson University in Anderson, SC.
Can I register without a deposit? And do I need names to register?
If there is available space after Feb 15, you must pay $50 per person at the moment you register. And no, we will not need names. All we need to register is a total number (chaperones and campers).
When do I receive camp paperwork?
We usually send our camp packets around the beginning of March. This allows us time to finalize our activities, schedules, and any other changes for camp.
What if someone backs out? Do I get their deposit back or can I transfer it to the remaining balance?
Unfortunately, no. However, you can replace that person with someone else and transfer their deposit to the other person. And if you let us know before the June 1st deadline, you will not be charged the remaining balance for that person.
Will I be able to add to my group total?
As long as there is space available. If there isn’t space available, we can always put them down on a waiting list.
What is the age limit for camp?
Campers need to be at least 11 yrs (typically rising 7th graders) to graduating seniors. College students are welcome to attend as chaperones.
Can I come to camp as an individual or with a small group that is not a church?
Yes and no. As long as you have a chaperone, we will welcome any group regardless of size. Unfortunately, we cannot have any teenagers unchaperoned.
What about Day Campers?
Unfortunately, we cannot take day campers. Any person desiring to come to camp must have a chaperone and has to participate in the entire week.
What are the accommodations like?
You will be staying in college dormitories. Most rooms are double occupancy and have two beds, two desks, two chairs, and two dressers. (There are a few one and three person rooms on campus that we use.) Bathrooms vary based on each dorm. (Some rooms have private baths, some share with the room next to it, and some have hallway baths shared by all.) You will need to bring your own linens to fit a twin size bed.
What if someone in my group has special needs?
If you will let us know in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, we will try to meet those needs. Anderson University is a Handicap Accessible University, including dorm rooms.
How many chaperones do I need to bring and what are their responsibilities?
You will need to bring 1 chaperone for every 8 teenagers. This needs to be separate for both males and females. Their responsibilities are to make sure that all of your teenagers are getting to where they need to be throughout the day. They are also there to help advise and counsel your teenagers with their daily walks with Christ. Throughout the day, chaperones will participate in all activities (besides tournaments) as if they were a camper themselves. You must have at least one male and one female chaperone if your group contains both genders.
