February 5th – Baked Potato Lunch. After morning service we will hold a fundraiser lunch in the Family Life Center. Ways to get funds from this lunch are: set up/ kitchen help before church during small group time (9:45) and serving food/drinks/dessert during lunch. If you want to get funds, please work in the ways mentioned above or arrange an alternative with Miss Kristi

April 2nd – Youth Silent Auction and meal. All campers will work the meal and the auction. Please start getting items that can be donated for the live auction. Have questions – contact Kristi. We need items by March 22nd, unless they are fresh, then by 5 pm on April 2nd.

Participation in the fundraisers will result in the money raised being divided equally between the students that work it. These generate a large amount of camp funds and we want to share that with all the students. Your students are highly encouraged to participate.

Getting Ready

May 1– Camp balances will be sent out.

May 14th– Camp balances due.

May 31st – Mandatory Parent meeting at 6:30 pm in the Worship center. Any forms needed will be completed. We will go over schedule, expectations, and plans for the week. Questions will be answered and the adults going on the trip will be there. All students and parents need to attend this meeting.

June 4th – Bag Drop off 5-6pm. Please have students drop bags off at Bethany. When the bag is dropped off, it will be checked by an adult leader going on the trip. We will be checking for unauthorized items. You will find the packing list in the packet. Any items found to not be allowed on the trip, will be placed in a bag and given to parents the next morning at camp departure. You can also bring medication for campers and leave with Kristi. All meds will be kept by Kristi and given out per the instructions.

Snacks can be sent with students for the week. We will provide snacks and gatorades/waters for the kids. If they want something specific they can bring it. ZERO energy drinks will be allowed on the trip.

COVID – Any student with a Covid diagnosis or in a home with a Covid diagnosis 10 days prior to camp will not be allowed to attend camp. There are over 1000 kids at camp (with over 40 being in our group). We feel it is honorable to Bethany Baptist and to God in being great stewards of our health and not spreading Covid knowingly. Zero exceptions will be made.

The Trip

Students can bring a small bag for the trip (with items needed on the drive – wallet (please send money for Chick Fil A there and back). This bag will also be checked before we leave.

June 5th-9th – Camp. A drop off and pick up time will be posted at a later date.

June 10th – Youth Sunday. All campers will be part of the morning worship at Bethany. Come see what camp was about, what they learned and listen to the testimonies of a week we have been praying for. Students need to wear camp t-shirts. We will spend some time in our small group at 9:45 going over the plan for worship.
