You have questions, we have answers
This is our 38th year of Family Camp. We only have a few that were there in the beginning, but we have plenty that are seasoned campers. Take a look at some frequently asked questions to help you in your plans for Family Camp this year.
If you have more questions, shoot us a comment below and we can add it to the list
How much does camp cost?
Camp is only $40 per person. That get's you 3 nights and 8 meals of awesomeness at Camp David Jr.
Kids 2 and under are free.
What do I need to bring?
We have the food & cabins covered, so just plan on the basics for camping. The bunks carry a reputation for not being super comfy, but the jury is still out on that one. Here's a quick list to get you started:
- An extra camping mattress for the bunks (thermarests are great)
- A Sleeping Bag & Pillow
- Toiletries & Towels (beach & shower)
- Bathing suit
- Coffee Mug & Water Bottle (Camp mugs and glasses may not be taken from the lodge)
- Camping Chair + a great book
- Card/Board Games to play in the lodge (write your name on it)
- A large dessert to share (please turn in to the kitchen when you check in at camp)
Can I bring my boat?
Yes! The camp has aluminum canoes and we have seen everything from sailboats, kayaks, SUP boards, ski boats and fishing boats make their way to camp. If you do plan to bring a boat just let us know in your registration form.
Can I go swimming?
Yes! We hire a beach certified lifeguard to keep us safe in the water. We will have a couple hours each day where the beach is open and the life guard is on duty for you to swim. There will be times when the beach is closed.
What are the cabins like?
The cabins are super simple. Most cabins have 11 bunks in them with pads for each bunk. They are all heated with skylights and concrete floors. Most cabins will have 2 families in them. There are partial walls dividing the 2 sections with a common space in the middle (there are no interior doors). The cabins have no bathrooms in them, but are not far from a bathroom. Showers are located in the lower level of the lodge.
Can I bring food?
We have a great kitchen staff that is planning and prepping to feed you and your family as you read this. You don't need to bring any food except the large dessert to share, but feel free to bring your favorite snack to hold you over between meals that can be stored in your cabin.
If you have a special diet or allergies you can let our camp staff know on your registration form and they will plan for you. If you need to refrigerate food at camp, we will set aside a small part of the fridge to be shared by all.
What do I have to do to get a camp shirt?
Easy, just follow this link and buy yours by May 3rd. Buy as many as you like, we love to see camp shirts and hoodies worn all year long! We cannot guarantee we will have your size available for purchase at camp.
What is the schedule at camp like?
We schedule camp with as much free time as possible for you to enjoy time with your family and your church. There are some all-camp meetings here and there for teaching, singing and all-around fun, but we build camp to give you space to enjoy time together.
Can I get a ride to camp?
We love to encourage carpooling, especially to Family Camp. The church will not be providing any rides to camp this year through a bus or a van.
