Canteen cards can be purchased for campers. These cards take the place of cash. NO CASH WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THE CANTEEN.
Missions money can be designated for your child to give to the summer’s mission. Unused Canteen cards will be donated to the mission.
This summer all of our weeks of camp will be taking up offerings for Hippo Valley Christian Mission. Campers will also have the opportunity to sacrificially give to missions from their canteen card. An information table will be set-up near the check-in tables with more information about this mission.

Faculty members and campers are to abide by the schedule unless excused by the dean or Assistant Director.
No one is permitted to leave the camp without the permission of the Dean or Assistant Director. With permission, you must sign out at the camp office.
Any sickness/injury must be reported to the camp first aid care giver.
No one is to go barefoot on the camp grounds at any time.
Any camper causing property damage will be held accountable for the cost.
No food or drinks are allowed in the cabins or chapel.
In matters of dress, modesty must prevail at all times. No halter tops, tube tops, bare midriff, strapless tops, exposed underwear, “short” shorts, or shirts with inappropriate graphics or words. NO cleavage or buttocks should be visible.

Dress in fun play clothes.

No weapons, guns, knives, fireworks.
Leave all electronics at home: CD player, iPod, MP3 player, video games.
Leave any valuables at home.
Cell Phones are not permitted. This is a common policy among Christian camps because of privacy concerns, safety issues, and the affect it can have on homesickness and a camper’s ability to disconnect. We want to set all campers up for the best possible camp experience.

To send your child mail at camp, use the camp address. Make sure the camper’s name and camp week are plainly written on the outside of the letter or package.
You can also send a camper telegram using our new online registration system.
