Youth Summer Camp

Camp may be the single most important event that our student ministry does. During camp, we have the opportunity to spend quality one on one time with students. During camp, students are growing closer together and build life long bonds. Each student’s faith is stretched as they each get experience God through worship, bible study and recreation. For our overall ministry that includes students, volunteers, and parents, camp is one of the best events for our ministry and absolutely crucial to what we are trying to do: Bring those far from God close to God.

What is Camp Like?

Camp is a Christ-centered, Bible study driven style camp for 6th – 12th graders. It includes a personal touch from staff, engaging worship, sound Biblical teaching, Bible Study, and fun recreations. Your students will get one-on-one time with staffers. Your students will walk away knowing they were loved and have heard the Gospel.

Can Parents Go?

We do ask for some adult chaperones to go. If you’re interested in going with us Email Richie@jcpineville.com or call the church office 318-640-1273

What is the Dress Code?

The reason for our dress code is so the focus of camp will not be altered. We want to
enjoy camp with as little distractions as possible. Dress modestly at all times.
Immodest shorts or tops, spaghetti strap tops, midriffs, distasteful designs or
messages, and other extreme clothing are not acceptable at any time.
T-shirts and shoes must be worn around campus except by the pool area.
Guys, here are some guidelines to follow:
• Please make sure all attire is modest and appropriate.
• No speedos or anything that resembles a speedo.
• Unless at the beach or pool, wear a shirt that completely covers the chest and torso
at all times.
• No sagging of shorts, pants or swim trunks
Girls, here are some guidelines to follow:
• Please make sure all attire is modest and appropriate.
• No tank top style shirts for everyday wear.
• One piece bathing suits – (no cutouts) or tankini’s that fully cover the stomach.
• Stomach should be covered at all times.
• All shirts and dresses should have a modest neckline.
• Shorts must be longer, but due to different arm lengths, a 2-3” above the knee short
is recommended.
• Skirts and dresses should keep you fully covered when bending over.
It is very important that group leaders and sponsors also maintain the dress code and
give direction to the students about attire. If students do not follow dress code, camp staff and your adult sponsors hold the right to ask students to change into
appropriate clothing. Leaders will be contacted if necessary.

What is the Cell Phone Rule?

We cannot police the total cell phone activity but please do what you can to discourage
texting, consistent use of their phones, and playing games while the students should
be sleeping. NO CELL PHONES are permitted during Bible study.

What is the smoking/tobacco standard?

Absolutely no smoking or tobacco products allowed during camp or on campus. For
adults who come to camp who smoke, we respectfully request that they do not smoke
on campus.

What is the alcohol/drug standard?

Alcohol is strictly prohibited during camp as well as narcotic drugs. If you
have a prescription, they need to be in the original prescription bottle and notify your
adult sponsor.

What are the Basic Rules?

• No foul language.
• Do not venture out after curfew.
• Watch the guy-girl thing. Guys should not be “hanging around” or entering girls rooms at all and vice versa.
• During any part of camp (Bible study, worship, etc…) students must be in their place with their group.
• Any defacing or damaging property will result in two consequences determined by the director:
o Full reimbursement for all damages & a possible trip home.
• NO PRANKS! NONE! This is a no tolerance issue for camp. Pranks cause division and hurt people ultimately.
