WHAT TO EXPECT
What is the COVID policy for camp?
Providence’s current policy encourages each family to make the best decision for their health and safety. Masks are optional and there will be no tolerance for shaming or bullying for either stance. We do ask families to be mindful and limit activities prior to camp to limit potential exposure and risk during the weekend. Our goal and desire is to keep everyone safe and healthy for the entire week.
All medicine is to be given to the camp medical team upon check-in on Monday. The medical staff will distribute all medicine. Students are responsible to come see them when it is time to take their medicine. Any and ALL medication (even OTC) must be turned in to Camp Med Staff at registration.
Meals are included in the registration cost. Meals are provided by the camp cafeteria served by Ocoee camp staff following all health guidelines. Please notify us of dietary restrictions ahead of time so that Ocoee camp staff can prepare accordingly.
Fifty-six passenger buses will be used to travel to Ocoee Retreat Center in Ocoee Tennessee. Each bus will be pre-cleaned and have a bathroom for the duration of the trip. We will make one stop for lunch and stretch break going to and returning from camp. This is covered in the camp cost.
Students will be grouped into specified bunk-style cabins. Some grades may be combined to maximize sleeping arrangements. Each cabin has separate showers and restrooms. Cabins on campus are separated by gender. Any questions or concerns may be directed to our student ministry team.
Refer to Ocoee Retreat website.
Each leader is interviewed and vetted for serving at summer camp by Jarrick, Kevin, and the student ministry team. Each counselor will be trained, equipped, and excited to serve your student throughout the week. We will plan for the counselors to have an in-person or virtual meeting with students prior to camp.
iPhones/iPads, cell phones, hand-held video games, laptops, etc. are not allowed. If these items are brought, they will be taken and given back at the end of the week. If a cell phone is taken to camp, counselors will take them up until we return home. Campers are not allowed to make phone calls other than to parents. Students can see the Camp Director, Kevin Lambeth, if they need to make a phone call or use their counselor’s phone.
Our packing list of what to bring and how to dress will be sent closer to camp.
PSM will send out more information closer to camp and communicate with parents via Text In Church (TIC) and email throughout the week of camp.
Theme will be announced closer to camp.
