We are so excited your child is coming to Woodlands Camp! They are going to have an unforgettable time at camp, learn more about Jesus and so much more! Below is some helpful information for you. If you have any questions, please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check in is from 3-5pm on Monday (Pee-Wee campers arrive on Thursday). Please do not arrive any earlier than 2pm. Upon arrival, please make sure there is easy access to your camper's luggage and camper mail. You will drop it off in front of Pine Cove. Don't forget to take out any medications and spending money! You will turn them in at check-in. You will be directed where to park throughout the camp. The final balance will be due 7 days prior to the first day of camp. Please login to your account to pay your balance in full.
Pick-up takes place at your camper's cabin or on the Trading Post deck (if you have an Xtreme camper) after closing activities at 9:15am. Please be sure to pick you camper up by 9:45am on closing day. If your camper is still at camp after 9:45am, they will be sent to the office. The Trading Post will be open on the closing day of camp for any last minute purchases. Junior campers will be picked up on Friday. Pee-Wee, Junior High and Teen campers will be picked up on Saturday.
We do hope that your camper will be able to stay at camp for the entire duration of camp. In the event that your camper is arriving late to camp, leaving early or riding home with a friend, please complete the Late Arrival, Early Check-Out or Alternate Pick-Up Form.
If your camper needs to cancel their registration, everything but the deposit will be refunded. The deposit is $100. It is non-transferable to other campers and non-refundable.
All campers are required to add a minimum of $10 to their Trading Post account online. However, additional funds may be added to the camper’s Trading Post account online on check-in day or throughout the week while your camper is at camp. Campers will be able to visit the Trading Post several times throughout the week. In the Trading Post, there is a snack shop, gift shop and bookstore. The coffee shop is located in the basement of the chapel. Junior High and Teen campers will have the opportunity to play paintball as well as have a pizza party on the last night of camp. Here are the average amounts of spending money each age group brings to camp:
Pee-Wee Camp - $10-$30
Junior Camp - $20-$40
Junior High Camp - $40-$60
Teen Camp - $60-$80
Any remaining funds will be given back to the camper in cash on the last day of camp unless specified to donate the remaining balance to the offering.
Each week, we teach our campers the joys in giving generously, then we give them an opportunity to give some of their spending money in our weekly offering. Summer 2018 Causes:
Biblica – Biblica focuses on three pivotal focus areas - Bible translation, Bible access and Bible engagement. This summer’s offering will focus on Bible access by raising enough money to put a Bible in the hands of one at-risk child somewhere in the world for every camper that attends Woodlands this summer!
Woodlands Scholarship Fund – designed to enable at-risk kids from northeast Georgia to attend Woodlands, experience an unforgettable week and hear about Jesus. 3,474 at-risk kids have attended Woodlands on scholarship since 1998. 15% of those kids have trusted Christ.
