Camp 2014

Kansas City District Summer Camp 2014

This year the KCD NYI is again running its own camp! We will enjoy a great week of camp at Sky Ranch Cave Springs in northeastern Oklahoma, July 7-11, 2014. The total cost for College Church students is $250. Registration and payments must be completed by June 1. After June 1, the total cost of camp increases to $300. Once again, initial camp registration must be completed online. Look below for the link to register for camp.

The initial $50 camp deposit and registration must be paid and completed online at the Kansas City District website by June 1. The balance due must then be paid to College Church by June 1. To register and pay your $50 deposit, go to www.kcdistrict.org/youthcamp. Once you complete the initial registration and pay the $50 deposit online, you will need to pay the rest of your balance due to College Church by June 1. After your initial $50 deposit is paid online, all checks need to be made payable to College Church. The $250 cost for College Church students is $15 more than the district's cost due to transportation costs and adult sponsor fees. All College Church students of The 11 must have a College Church The 11 Medical and Travel Release Form on file with the Student Ministries Office in order to ride on College Church vehicles to camp. Students are guaranteed a ride to and from camp with College Church only after they have registered and paid their deposit online, paid their remaining balance due to College Church by June 1, and have a current College Church The 11 Medical and Travel Release Form on file with the Student Ministries Office.

Students in grades 7-12 during Spring 2014 are eligible to attend this camp.

College Church camp vehicles will leave from north CFLC on Monday morning, July 7. We'll return to the church on Friday, July 11. Exact times will be announced as the dates approach.

Please submit this completed participant agreement to the College Church Student Ministries Office by June 1. Campers will not be allowed on the College Church vehicles without first submitting this completed participant agreement.
