May younger children come to camp?
We want group leaders and adults to be able to spend time with loved ones during their busy summer, and we understand that, in some situations, parents or guardians may want or need to bring younger kids to camp. Infants or toddlers who do not require additional bed space or meals may come at no charge. Younger kids who need a bed or who will eat meals at camp should be registered as a participant at full price. Younger kids should remain under adult supervision at all times, and may not participate in Bible study, recreation, or track times. Please also consider the needs of your campers, and ensure enough adults accompany your group to build relationships and focus on their camp experience. All participants (even younger kids) must have a completed camp waiver and release.
Are accommodations made for kids with food allergies?
Many of our locations are able to accommodate food allergies and sensitivities. Please let us know ahead of time of any allergies so we can communicate them with our locations – we will let you know if they are not able to accommodate your child’s food allergy.
How do you handle medication at camp?
Adult Leaders are responsible for medication brought to camp. CentriKid staffers are not responsible for dispensing medication to campers.
Can guests come visit camp?
Safety at camp is very important. Group leaders should inform the camp director of any visitors throughout the cycle of camp. Upon arrival, visitors must immediately check in with the camp director. Visitors will receive a sticker that must be worn and visible at all times while on campus. Visitors are not allowed in the housing areas of campers and should remain in public or common areas while at camp. Visitors who plan to stay overnight should book their own lodging off campus and should make arrangements to pay the venue directly for any meals eaten on campus. Guests who wish to stay overnight on campus with their group should work with their group leader to register as a full participant and follow all policies related to adults at camp (background check, Child Protection Training, camp waiver, etc.).
Should my child bring money to camp?
There will be a camp store open throughout the week where they can purchase fun camp souvenirs. There will also be a missions offering that they will hear about and can give to if they would like.
What will the accommodations look like where my camper will stay?
Click on Find-A-Camp page and select the location your group is attending. From there you will find information about the facilities, housing, and other fun stuff. When you have questions, your Kids Minister or Group Leader may have answers from our regular updates, or they can get in touch with our office!
Are there theme nights or anything special my child should pack?
There are no “dress-up” nights at CentriKid. For OMC, our all-camp event on the last full day, kids and adults are encouraged to wear their team colors! This could be as simple as packing a t-shirt in that color. (Refer question above to find out what color team your child will be on)
Where can i find lost items after camp?
At the end of each day, misplaced items are displayed near buses in the hopes of returning them to their owner. If a camper’s name is on the found item, we do our best to return it to the camper that day. At the end of the week, we discard dirty socks, beach towels, and half-full water bottles. All remaining items left at camp will be kept until the end of the summer and then donated.
