Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When do we arrive?

A: Each summer camp week begins Monday afternoon with check-in from 3-6 PM. The first meal is served at 6:30 PM; the first service is at 8 PM. The camp week ends after the last service Friday night. Plan to leave by 8 AM Saturday morning.

Q: Do church counselors need to register, and what is the cost for them?

A: Yes, every adult that comes to camp needs to register using the same forms that the campers use. There will be a place to mark that they are coming as an adult. The cost for camp is the same as the cost for the camper.

Q: Who qualifies as a church counselor and how many counselors does our group need?

A: All church counselors must be at least 20 years old or married. One church counselor for every 8 to 10 campers is an ideal ratio. If possible, there should be at least one man and one woman with each church group. Please contact the registrar if this is a problem. All adults will automatically stay with the campers unless staying in a Fast Track room or renting a deluxe room.

Q: Can church counselors bring their young children with them to camp?

A: We encourage church counselors not to bring their young children with them to camp, if at all possible, for two reasons: (1) our youth weeks are not set up to accommodate small children (no nurseries, etc.), and (2) necessary care for the children during the week would keep the church counselor from fully being able to focus their attention on the campers that came with them. With this said, we understand that sometimes this is unavoidable. In this case, the church counselors may rent a family deluxe room. Contact the registrar for prices and to reserve the room.

Q: Can my group add on campers after our week is declared "full"?

A: Yes. Though a week is declared "full" to any new groups, we purposely leave space for any of our existing groups to grow. We never want you to have to turn away campers! Please just be sure to send their registrations in to us as soon as possible so that we can plan appropriately. Any last-minute add-ons (within 1 week of your camp date) should be communicated to the registrar by phone or email, and the registration forms can be turned in upon arrival.

Q: What about camper medication?

A: For the safety of all campers in the cabin, we ask that all medication be turned in to the First Aid station upon arrival. Our medical staff will keep careful records and will ensure that each camper receives his/her medication when needed.

Q: What about campers with special diets?

A: Due to the wide variety of campers that come every week, we cannot accommodate every allergy and diet represented. Campers with special food needs can bring supplemental food with them. If the food needs to be refrigerated, please accompany the camper to the First Aid Station to store it there. Specific menu information will be available upon request.

Q: What is your policy about cell phones?

A: While campers may bring cell phones with them for use on the trip, they will be required to turn them in to you or another church counselor for the duration of the camp week. Their staff counselor will collect any phones that have not already been collected by the church counselor. Any emergency calls can be arranged through the church counselor. Parents may feel free to call the Ranch if a message needs to be conveyed to their children.

Q: Is there a place to do laundry?

A: Yes. Our Wash Tub is available for use by church counselors throughout the week. The Wash Tub is fully equipped with several washers and large dryers. The washers and dryers take quarters, and there is a change machine in the room.

Q: What is the cost for renting linens?

A: A full set of linens (bedding, pillow, towels, washcloths) can be rented from the Linen Room for $8. If a camper needs an individual item, the costs are as follows: sheets ($3), towels ($2), washcloths ($1),pillow/case ($1), blanket ($3).
