Camp Registration Info

Paperwork & Payment

You need to check off a few things before dropping your student off at the campground! For your student to participate in the camp, we need:
 

  1. Bethany’s Guardian Permission Waiver

  2. Black Diamond Participation Guardian Waiver

  3. Med lists/food allergies

  4. Remaining fee (if not paid in full)

Please check your email for “checklist” updates. If you have something turned in, the checklist will have ‘COMPLETED’ next to it and a ‘NEEDED’ if this is something we still need from you. Your remaining fee, if you have a balance, can be paid using the link sent to the email given at the time of registration. Your remaining amount will be next to the ‘remaining fee’ on the checklist.
 

Once all waivers, information, and payment is paid in full, you will get a ‘Good to go!’ email, which will have ‘COMPLETED’ next to all things on the checklist as well as all the information below:

  • Camp Address

  • Camp Drop off

  • Meds/supplement instructions

  • Camp pick up

  • Emergency contact information

  • What to leave behinds (like cell phones, as for safety we have a no cell phone policy for campers)

  • Packing list

  • And reminders of most forgotten things

 

We know all the paperwork and checklists can be annoying, and sometimes mistakes are made, so we appreciate your participation and patience.

*Make sure you don’t forget anything; top forgotten items are always towels, a pillow, a toothbrush, and a water bottle. It's gonna be warm and sunny, so we gotta ‘hydrate so we don’t die-drate’. And just as a seasoned Bethany students camper, pack a couple snacks and money for the snack shack!*

Medications/Supplements

For your students’ and other students’ safety, it’s part of Bethany Students’ protocol to sign in all medication/supplements, no matter what they may be. This ensures they get the correct dosage, take them at the right time, and stay safe. A form for meds and the proper dosage is provided. You will write the student’s name, the name of the med/supplement when they need to take it, how many times a day, if necessary, and the directions. The nurse will be at meal times and have a station set up in the morning and evening to care for each student’s needs. Pro tip: only pack the necessary amount needed for camp.

 

In Case of Emergencies
An emergency phone number will be provided to call in the case of an emergency.

General Rules

  • You can't touch, take, or go through other people’s belongings.**

  • Do not go into or look into an opposite genders cabin or a cabin or bathrooms that you aren't assigned to.

  • Be present at scheduled activities and locations as per the schedule. There will be daily free time to do other activities.**

  • The Common Sense Rule: If you're unsure whether something is allowed or not covered in the rules, please ask a leader or the camp director for clarification. Additionally, if you identify a loophole in the rules and exploit it, resulting in potential harm to yourself or others, and it violates any of the established guidelines, this may warrant removal from the camp.

General Tips

  • Remember to wear sunscreen/sunblock.

  • Make a new friend!

  • Be on time, even a little early!

  • Hydrate so you don’t DIE-drate.

  • Personal hygiene is important! Daily showers and brushes are important.

  • Find your cabin table for mealtimes, look for your labeled tables or cabin leaders. Family style meals!

  • Only pee in camp toilets...thanks.

 

Swimming Pool Rules

  • You need to pass a swimming test before having full access to swimming activities.
  • Please listen to the lifeguards and staff around campus.

  • No going into the pool outside of the set swimming hours (students will be given these times)**

  • Remember to bring a bathing suit cover-up for the ladies and a shirt for the gentlemen when walking to and from the pool. While in the pool, wearing a shirt or cover-up is optional.

  • Shoes must be worn on the way to and from the pool. (If we have to keep reminding you, this could be a phone call home, and potentially cause for removal.)**

 

Camp Wind-Down Time

  • ​You will be given a period of time to get ready for bed, fill water bottles, chat and relax for around an hour at the end of the day before lights out. This is not a time to be out of your cabins.

  • Once lights out time comes, it really does mean lights out. Please be respectful of the people in your cabin wanting to take advantage of this time. No talking or doing things that cause noise or disruption to others.

  • No sneaking out or leaving the cabin past lights out.**

  • In the morning before breakfast, stay in cabins or feel free to be in designated spots (like the student led morning devotional or in area around cabins)

 

Items Not Allowed

  • Cell phones/gaming electronics.

  • Weapons of any kind (This includes pocketknives & pepper spray)

  • Drugs/alcoholic substances.

  • If you brought any items/things/substance you weren’t supposed to, turn it into a leader
