How to Prepare Your Child for Camp
1. Make sure your camper has gotten plenty of rest before his/her arrival at camp. The camp schedule is very busy. Campers need to be well rested!
2. Check the packing list. Pack with your child instead of for your child.
3. Tell your child that you will miss her/him, but you want her/him to have a wonderful time. Don't say things like: "I don't know how I will ever make it while you're gone!" Instead, say things like: "I will miss you at home this week, but I can't wait to here about all the fun things you'll do at camp."
4. If you think your child might get homesick, don't promise that he/she can call you. Cell phones are not allowed. Stacy, the camp director, will call you if there is a need. Most campers who do get homesick, end up having a wonderful week. Be encouraging! Be willing to let your child develop the skill of being away from home.
5. Send your camper snail mail. You may want to send it the week before camp. Mark the date of your child's camp on the envelope to help staff deliver it.
6. Send your camper with a journal to record experiences and thoughts about God.
7. Pray with your camper before she/he leaves. Ask for safety, the ability to make new friends and learn about missions. If your child is not a Christian, pray that he/she will be sensitive to the Holy Spririt's leading. We will have a commitment service on Thursday nights.
