Youth Bible Camp

Important Details

CHECK IN (ARRIVING): Campers will check in on July 11 and 18, from 2:00–4:00 pm. Campers may not check in before this time. 

CHECK OUT (DEPARTING): Camper checkout will be on July 18 and 25 from 10:00–11:30 am.

CLASSES: Class registration will open a few months prior to camp. Those who registered for camp first will have the option to choose classes first (i.e. receive class registration codes and will be able to complete online class registration).

COVID-19: Camp will remain as much the same as possible, but will be smaller than usual, and some activities may be adjusted to facilitate compliance with the current health mandates such as physical distancing or wearing of face coverings. Because we don't know what COVID-19 regulations will be in place in July, we can’t give a absolute guarantee that camp will happen. Because of this uncertainty, a no-questions-asked cancellation policy is instituted for this year. If you need to cancel, just let us know and we will give you a full refund, including your application deposit. 

FOOD: Tasty, nondairy vegetarian meals will be provided. If you need gluten-free meals, please mark that on your application.

FINANCIAL: The camp fee of $365 covers meals, lodging, airport pickup/dropoff, camp activities, and most class options. A refundable application deposit of $50 is due at the time of application, and is deducted from the balance due. Limited needs-based financial aid may be available. Please contact the camp office for more information. 

FLIGHT INFORMATION: Begin looking for discount airfares starting in the late winter or early spring. Check sites such as kayak.com and southwest.com for sales. Please be sure your application has been accepted prior to finalizing travel plans.

LODGING: Enjoy a real camping experience! Lodging will be in cabin tents or simple wood cabins.

PHONES/ELECTRONICS: We believe that camp should be a place to make friends, enjoy nature, and learn about God. To best acheive these goals, camp policy requires that phones, games, computers, media players, etc., be left at home or checked into camp customs for safekeeping. Campers needing to place approved calls (i.e. family emergency), may do so in the camp office under the guidance of their counselor. Parents are encouraged to send messages to their children via mail or email.

TRANSPORTATION: Bus service from/to Spokane International Airport is available for campers arriving by 2:30 pm on Sunday, July 11 or 18, and flying out after 1:00 pm on Sunday, July 18 or 25. The camp cannot provide pickup/drop-off service outside of these times.

STAFF: Staff are carefully selected based on their commitment to the Lord, high Christian standards, abilities, and love for young people. A high staff-to-camper ratio is maintained.

VOLUNTEERS/PARENTS: Staff volunteers are vital to the camp program! Service positions are available in a number of areas, and especially for food preparation. If you know of someone that may be able to serve, please contact the YD office or have them complete a staff volunteer application. Unfortunately we are unable to offer meals and lodging for non-staff parents or family members.

WELLNESS: Medical staff will be stationed on campus while EMS services and a medical clinic are just a few minutes away.
