What is tuck shop?
Tuck shop is like a candy store were the kids get to buy something once a day. Candy bags, pop, freezies, and chips are available alongside beach balls, frisbees, and books.
How much money should I send for tuck shop?
We do put a cap on what the kids can spend in one day, dependent on the age group. For the younger kids we usually suggest $2 – $6/week and for the older kids $10 – $20/week. If they would like to purchase additional t-shirts, books, or personal items additional money is recommended.
Can my child call home?
Yes, your camper can call home if they need to speak with you or if they are just a little homesick.

Are we a Christian Camp?
We are a Christian camp, but we happily welcome campers from all faith backgrounds and religions. Campers that come who are not from a Christian background are able and invited to participate in all of our activities. We have two chapel times each day – one in the morning, and one in the evening. One is usually shorter, 15-20 minutes and has a couple of fun songs and a story, and the other is a bit longer with more songs and a longer story/message. The songs and stories are age appropriate for each camp. We talk about God throughout the day as it comes up in conversation, but about 30% of our campers are not from a Christian background so we try to keep the conversations easy for all campers to engage with.
