frequently asked questions

What is 6th Grade Camp?

It is a high-energy, fun-packed retreat designed specifically for rising 6th grade students and their small group leaders. There will be incredible worship, helpful teaching, and life-changing small group discussions. This event kick-starts friendships that your student will build on over the next three years. 

Will there actually be “camping” at 6th Grade Camp?

Nope! Small groups will stay in air-conditioned cabins with their adult leaders. Don’t worry about packing a tent. 

What if my sixth grader doesn’t know many other students?

6th Grade Camp is the perfect place to be! Students will form healthy relationships in their small groups that they will build on over the next three years. 

What is the student/leader ratio?

Although we do not know the exact ratios until after registration closes, we like to have one leader for every eight students.

We are nervous about this being our student’s first weekend away. What safety precautions have you implemented?

We understand completely. Each year, hundreds of parents trust us with their students for their first weekend away. We take their safety very seriously and maintain a student-leader ratio of eight to one. Dozens of staff are onsite for the entire weekend. We also have multiple registered nurses at camp at all times.

How will parents be contacted in case of an emergency?

Someone on staff will call the phone number you provided us when you registered your student.

What if my student has a food allergy?

Please let us know when you register, and we will be happy to accommodate your student. Alternative meals are often available. 

How do you determine the cost per student for your events?

Many factors play into this decision, and parents are often surprised to learn that our events do not pay for themselves. There is a portion of our yearly Transit budget that supplements the event cost. Some cost factors include: facility rental, transportation, camp production, medical professionals, security, lifeguards, and much more. Also, since we ask so much of our small group leaders, we use the cost of registration to cover their expenses for attending. So, when you pay for your student to attend one of our events, a portion of that money is used to cover the cost of their small group leader.

Can you offer financial assistance?

Yes. We have scholarships available. We never want a student to miss an event because of financial issues. You can find an application on our website. 

What if my student has a conflicting event or game?

Your student won’t regret prioritizing 6th Grade Camp over an outside activity. While we would love for your student to attend the entire retreat, if that isn’t possible, you may pick them up early or drop them off late.

What is the cancellation policy?

Cancellations made between Sunday, May 19, and Thursday, August 22, will receive a full refund. Cancellations sent after check-in on Friday, August 23, will receive no refund of any kind.
