Camptendo – Preteen Camp

Your completed 3rd- 6th grader is invited to join us July 7-10 at Carolina Creek in Huntsville, TX, for Camptendo! During our 4-day, 3-night camp experience, gamers (aka campers) will be on adventures like swimming, canoeing, zip lining, and team-building activities as they take on challenges, collect keys, and battle their way to the top of the leaderboard.  Our campers will study the lives of Gideon and Caleb as they learn how to face life’s challenges, explore God’s purposes, and gain confidence as they become MORE THAN CONQUERORS in Christ. It’s a week your gamer won’t want to miss!

FAQ:

-How do I know my kid is ready for sleepaway camp? A kid that is ready for a week of camp is able to be away from mom and dad for an extended period of time, has slept away from home before for more than one night, is able to be responsible for his/her own belongings, is able to shower, wash hair, change clothes, apply sunscreen, and fix hair (girls) with little to no assistance. Kids who are ready for camp are able to follow instructions when asked, be on time, stay with the group, be flexible with schedule changes, be able to articulate health and dietary needs, and maintain a positive attitude with late nights and early mornings. A kid who is ready for camp gets along well with others, is respectful, and can be trusted to follow the rules. Have questions or concerns about whether or not your child is ready for camp? Feel free to contact Kimberly or Jennifer in the church office.

-My child has (baseball, dance, swim practice) in the middle of the week. Can they leave and return? At this time, camp is open only to campers who will arrive on Sunday and stay through late morning on Wednesday. If you have specific questions, please call the church office.

-Can my 2nd grader attend? Because of the length of camp and the nature of the program, we are accepting 2nd graders with an accompanying parent, only as camper and chaperone space allows. Please reach out to the office for more info.

-Can my child bring a friend? Absolutely! We look forward to meeting your child’s completed 3rd-6th grade friend.

-Can I visit my child at camp? To maintain the security of all of the children in our care, we do not allow parent visits at camp.

-Can I email my kid at camp? Will you accept care packages and letters? We will not have access to email at camp. We will be collecting letters only to take to camp. Because of the lack of storage and rules about food in cabins, we will NOT be accepting care packages.

-Can I call my kid at camp? You will be provided a phone number for church staff and your child’s individual counselor. We do not allow kids to call home, or take calls from home, and counselors are not able to accept requests for individual photos throughout camp. Kids are absolutely NOT permitted to bring phones or electronic devices to camp. We will, however, have a closed FB group where we will be updating photos throughout the week.

-Can I send my kids’ meds or inhaler to camp? What if my child gets sick at camp? We will have a nurse on site who will maintain and dispense all meds and take care of minor injuries. In case of a contagious illness or moderate injury, a parent will be called to pick up their child.

-What if my child has special needs? Can they attend camp? We want all kids that attend camp to have a fun and successful week. Please contact the Kids’ Ministry office directly to discuss your child’s individual needs, and whether sleep away camp is the right fit for your family.

-Can I take my own kid to camp? Parking at camp is very limited, and Forest Glen has asked us to keep our cars to a minimum. Please call the church office if you have any questions.

-Can I be a camp counselor? We love our camp counselors and would be very interested to hear from you. If you would like to be considered as a camp counselor, please email Katy at Katya@thewoodlandsfirst.org

-Is there a parent/camper meeting? How do I find out camp details and packing lists? This year’s camper meeting is tentatively planned to be an online meeting you and your camper can view at your convenience and then download camp forms. Stay tuned closer to the summer with more details or an alternate on-campus meeting time.
