Can students bring cell phones/electronics to camp?
The short answer is yes, but at their own risk. Next Level Kids Camp and Latham Springs are not responsible for personal items lost or damaged during camp. We realize in today’s world the only Bible students may own is on their phone or device…or students may want to utilize the note-taking ability of their device. We also know that many of today’s parents like to be in constant contact with their children through text or phone calls. All of these uses are allowable to an extent. We request that sponsors monitor their student’s use of the devices to ensure proper use and limited distractions during camp events and the week in general. As a side note, AT&T and Verizon work best out here but both can be difficult to find a signal at times. Limited Wifi is available for adults to use in designated areas.
What do students need to bring to camp?
Bible, toiletries, towels, bedding for a twin size bunk bed, clothes (extra clothes for Rec that they can get dirty in), swimsuits. You can find a checklist here.
What is the dress code?
Dress at camp should meet the highest Christian standards. Campers with clothing that is too revealing, with inappropriate messages, or draws unnecessary attention will be asked to change into appropriate clothing. Please adhere to the following examples:
- Wearing cover-ups to and from the lake. (guys and girls)
- Restrict tank tops to 2 fingertip width minimum – avoid spaghetti strap garments.
- Keep shorts at fingertip length.
- Do not wear low-cut or revealing shirts, dresses, or tops.
- Two-piece swimsuits should be covered with a dark t-shirt.
- For personal safety, shoes should be worn outdoors at all times.
Will there be photos available for parents to view throughout the week of camp?
