The ONE Scholarship:

ONE Scholarship Form

Summer Peak Scholarships:
We want to do our best to make sure money is not a barrier for any student to attend camp. If you, or a friend, need financial assistance to attend camp please fill out the linked scholarship form. If you would like to pay for camp in installments please email Laura at lshelley@chcc.org.

What should I bring:
Please try to limit your students packing to one bag/suitcase. Remember, we will just be gone for the weekend and do not need bedding. Your student should be able to carry all of their belongings by themselves to their cabin in one trip.

Packing List:
A sack dinner for the trip there (or eat before you come), tennis shoes, boots, swim suit (one piece for girls), flip flops, PJs, pants, shorts, shirts, undergarments, Bible, notebook, pen, a set of clothes to get very dirty in, a trash bag for dirty clothes, toiletries, medication, sunscreen, pool towel, warm clothes, a coat, a reusable water bottle, a flash light, and money for snacks/souvenirs (optional). All bedding is provided by the camp. You can bring a pillow if you would like one for the bus.

Please don’t bring:
Cell phones (they will be taken away), electronics (cameras are allowed), knives, matches/lighters, drugs, anything you would be sad to lose, bad attitudes.

Camper Safety, Our #1 Priority:
The safety of our students is always our first priority when planning any event or retreat. The following steps are just some of the ways we do our best to provide a safe experience for everyone.
• We always maintain a minimum of a 10 to 1 ratio of students to leaders
• Leaders are never permitted to be alone with a student in any situation
• All of our small group leaders undergo a thorough background and reference check
• Small group leaders undergo our Child Protection Plan training in order to provide awareness, prevention, and reporting guidelines.
• We provide our own personal certified nurse and life guard to care for the needs of our group
• Transportation will be provided by a professional bus company with CDL licensed drivers operating charter buses
• Partner with retreat center to ensure there are procedures for emergency situations in place

Helpful Information:
• Registration will take place on August 23 between 4:45-5:15p. Please arrive as early as 4:30p if you can. Buses are scheduled to leave around 5:30p. Registration will be located at Midpoint Student Ministry in the gym. Please eat before coming or pack a dinner for the bus. Buses should return from camp at church around 5:00p. We will update our social media sources (Facebook) with our ETA on the way home. Find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/MidpointStudentMinistry/.
• Parent Meeting: There will be a parent meeting on the Aug 25 at 4:30p prior to the arrival of students in the chapel. This meeting will recap our weekend, give you a peek into our retreat through a highlight video, and provide you with some powerful ways to follow up with your student regarding their retreat experience.
• Crooked Creek’s Food Service team is very willing to work with your child’s dietary needs. Please make sure to list all needs during registration and we will be sure they get to the kitchen staff. As an extra level of protection our camp nurse will have a list of everyone’s allergies and dietary needs. Crooked Creek’s kitchen is nut free.
• Medication: If you child will be taking any medication over the weekend they will need to bring them in a zip-lock bag with their name and instruction for our nurse. We will turn all medication in to our nurse during registration to distribute during meals and at night. We will announce mediations times at breakfast, lunch, dinner, and at night. We will do our best to get your student their medication at these times but ultimately it is the responsibility of the student to come to the nurse during these times. Please remember to pick up your medication after camp.
• Contacting Students: If you need to get in touch with your student during camp please contact Laura Shelley at 405.420.8765. Cell reception isn’t great so text messages have a better chance of going through.
