Dear Ministers, Youth Directors, and Youth Sponsors,
Summer Camp 2017 is rapidly approaching! In this packet you will find registration materials and camp information for all of our summer camps. The Registration Form has been updated, so please use the one that says Mission South 2017.
Please be sure that your campers and their parents complete the necessary information contained on the form. Incomplete forms will be returned. We strongly suggest each church hold a Camp Sign-Up Sunday. This makes completing the form much easier on everyone. All signatures, which can be found on the front page of the Registration Form, are required. The signature of a minister is no longer required, however we do need the contact information of the person at the church that is sponsoring each camper. (That info. should be recorded on the 2nd page of the registration form.) Payment should be made out to the Bluebonnet Area or the Coastal Plains Area on a church check. Please do not send part of the payment on a parent check and the other part on a church check. This is very difficult and confusing to process. Some scholarships are available.
Please make every effort to submit completed original forms to the Area Office prior to the deadlines. The deadlines for all camps except for CYF Conference are May 1, 2017. Registrations after the deadline are discouraged. We want as many kids as possible to go to camp however, last minute stragglers make it difficult for directors to make budgets, order supplies, and plan activities. If you have one or two kids you are still waiting on, send in the completed forms by the deadline and we will try to accommodate the stragglers.
Please remember, summer camp is different from retreats. In order to serve as a Small Group Leader for summer camp, you have to attend be trained in Ministry Safe and pass an exam, have a background check completed by your Area Office (You must have a completed a 2017 adult interest form,) and you have to be invited by the Director. Our camp staffs are being formed now. If you are interested in volunteering for a camp, please contact the Emily Wycpalek or Beth Graham. Adults who volunteer themselves at the last minute will not be permitted to remain at camp!
If you have any further questions please feel free to call Emily Wycpalek at
(210) 262-6626 or Beth Graham at (409) 892-3212. See ya at Gonzo!
In His Service,
Pastor Emily Wycpalek
