Registration Details
Cost: $250 November 1-December 31, $275 January 1-Feburary 15 (Online Registration Closes). If we still have open spots after online registration closes we will do what we can to get students registered. If we have room after online registration closes on February 15 the price of camp will be $300 to cover the additional administrative expenses. If you would like to register after online registration has closed please email Laura at lshelley@chcc.org.

Cancelation Policy: Due to our payment obligations, no refunds will be given within 15 days of our departure to camp. Sorry for any inconvenience this might cause you. For emergency circumstances, such as a family tragedy, please email Laura at lshelley@chcc.org.

The ONE Scholarship is a free scholarship for students who do not regularly attend church and would not identify themselves as a Christ follower. This camp will be an environment where your child can be transparent, experience authentic friendships, and where they can freely explore the basics of the Christian faith with no pressure, no obligation, and no charge.

Please don’t bring: anything you would be sad to lose, electronics (cameras are allowed but please leave your phone at home, you can use our phone if you need one), knives, matches/lighters, drugs, 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

Early Departure or Late Arrival Form

Helpful Information
• Check-in will take place on March 1 between 5:00-5:30p. Please arrive as early as 4:30 if you can. Buses are scheduled to leave around 6:00p. We will do check-in on the far south side of the building in the gym. Please eat before coming or pack a dinner for the bus. Buses should return from camp at church around 4:30p and drop off in front of the chapel. We will update our social media sources (Facebook) with our ETA on the way home. Find us on Facebook at facebook.com/MidpointStudentMinistry/.
• Parent Meeting: There will be a parent meeting on March 3 at 4:00p for parent prior to the arrival of students in the chapel (the fancy steeple building on the north side of campus). 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.
• Frontier Ranch’s Food Service team is very willing to work with your child’s dietary needs. Please make sure to fill out the form during registration or linked below to get to information to the kitchen staff. As an extra level of protection our camp nurse will have a list of everyone’s allergies and dietary needs. Frontier Ranch’s kitchen is nut free. Food Allergy/Dietary Restriction Form
• 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 the camp office at (Office Phone: 719-395-4111). You can try Laura’s cell phone at 405-420-8765 as well. Cell reception isn’t great so text messages have a better chance of going through or please leave a voicemail.
