Camp

Kids, Junior High, and Senior High Camp

Summer camps are the CAN'T-MISS event of the year!  Every year 5 states and 30+ churches come together for one week of awesomeness separated in three camps Kids Camp (3 - 5 grade), Junior High Camp (6-8 grade), Senior High Camp (9 - 12 grade).  Summer camp has been an experience where students are taken away from the distractions of home and place in an environment where they are encouraged to grow closer to each other and to God.  First MB Students/Kids value camps as part of the kid/student's faith journey.  Register below!

You can also make withdrawals to donate to the offering project.

Parents/Guardians – To help the bank withdrawal process go quickly, please send small bills – preferably as $1, $5 or $10 bills. Please note: any money left in the Camp Bank following check-out will be added to the offering.

 

WHAT NOT TO BRING:

Personal junk food stash:  This includes all candy, pop & energy drinks.  Pop will be available during lunch and at the afternoon snack bar along with Gatorade, candy, chips, cookies, etc.  Anything not purchased at the snack bar may be confiscated by the counselors and will not be returned.  Parents/Guardians, please help us by not sending food or drink with your camper.
Valuables: Please leave any valuable jewelry or other expensive personal items at home, as we cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items.
Electronics (cell phones, music systems, electronic games, etc.) are NOT permitted at camp.  Parents may call or text the director in case of emergencies.  When texting, please identify yourself so we can quickly respond to your concern.

Extra Information
What is this policy that everyone over 18 has to take an online safety course?  
For Any Attendees 18 and Older (student or leader).  Our student's spiritual growth is a goal but their physical SAFETY is also important. For this reason, Glorieta Camps REQUIRES all attendees 18 and over to complete a Child Abuse Awareness Online Training as part of the camp’s Child Protection Plan. Any adult on the property (includes youth who are 18, adult leaders, band, interns… everyone) who turns 18 before June 1 will need to complete this 60-minute online training prior to attending. There will be no exceptions, mainly because Glorieta Camps run this entire process.
