Radios, CD/MP3/DVD players, skate boards, bikes, roller blades, large knives, or firearms. No smoking. No pets.

More

Dress
From its beginning West Branch has encouraged its guests to honor the Lord in appearance. Wholesome standards displaying modesty and distinction between the sexes are intended to be a help and blessing to you.

Boys No shorts. Since all campers are asked to be neat and clean for the services, sweatpants or wind pants will not be appropriate for services. Jeans are fine.

Girls No shorts (see last line), slacks, capris or gauchos. Skirts, dresses, and activity attire (culottes/athletic wear) must be knee-length and of proper fullness. Skirts or dresses are required in the mornings and evenings. This would include all meals and services. Culottes of proper length and fullness should be worn only in the afternoons for sports and other activities. (Junior camper girls may wear culottes throughout the day.) We accept knee-length, baggy athletic shorts as culottes.

Food
Three delicious meals to youth and adults alike will be served each day from our mobile commercial kitchen with various options at each meal. Dining is outdoors under the beautiful pines with indoor options in case of rain.

Cabins
Church groups stay together in our cabins (bunkbeds) with full restroom facilities. Church counselors would need to stay with the campers in the cabins as no other lodging facilities are currently available. During family camp, each family has their own cabin with bunkbeds; tent campers use available cabins for shower houses.

Medical

All camper medications must be turned in to the camp first aid station and will be dispensed by staff on a regular schedule. Information and instructions for taking medication should be sent on the registration card. Diabetics or others on special diets must bring their own foodstuffs if supplement beyond regular meal is desired. A refrigerator and microwave is available for use under supervision for those with special dietary needs.

Arrival
Plan to be West Branch for the first meal and first service. A good beginning is important to the success of the entire camp. Youth and Junior camps begin Monday afternoon with check-in from 2:00-4:00 PM. During Youth and Junior camps, there is an opening meeting at 4:30, and the first meal is served at 5:30. The first Junior Camp service at 7:00 and the first Youth Camp service is at 7:30. Family Camp begins Thursday afternoon with check-in from 1:00-3:00 PM followed by an activity, supper (5:30), and the first service (7:00).

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When do we arrive?
A: Youth and Junior camps begin Monday afternoon with check-in from 2:00-4:00 PM. During Youth and Junior camps, there is an opening meeting at 4:30, and the first meal is served at 5:30. The first Junior Camp service at 7:00 and the first Youth Camp service is at 7:30. Family Camp begins Thursday afternoon with check-in from 1:00-3:00 PM followed by an activity, supper (5:30), and the first service (7:00).

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 he/she is coming as an adult. The cost for camp is the same as the cost for the camper. *Note: two church counselors per church may come free as a result of Fast Track reservations. One additional church counselor may come free for every 15 campers registered by February 28.

Q: Who qualifies as a church counselor and how many counselors does our group need?
A: We prefer church counselors to be at least 20 years old or married. (Contact us about exceptions.) 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 stay with the campers unless they have made separate reservations off camp. (We recommend all adults stay with their campers.)

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 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 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 reserve their own accommodations off camp. No children under camp age are permitted in camp cabins.

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 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 us 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 staff 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 each week, we cannot accommodate every allergy and diet represented. Campers with special food needs can bring supplemental food with them. We will ask church counselors rather than the campers to keep track of the foodstuffs during the week.

Q: What is your policy about cell phones?
A: While youth and junior 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 West Branch (928.635.2097) if a message needs to be conveyed to their children.

Q: Is there a place to do laundry?
A: There are no facilities available on camp, but there are several coin-operated laundromats in nearby Williams.

Q: What is the cost for renting linens?
A: A full set of linens (bedding, pillow, towel, washcloth) can be rented from the Linen Room for $7. If a camper needs an individual item, the costs are as follows: sheets ($2), towels ($1), washcloths ($1),pillow/case ($1), blanket ($2).
