The ONE Scholarship is a free scholarship for students who do not regularly attend church and would not identify themselves as a Christ follower.

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 leaders undergo a thorough background and reference check
• Leaders undergo our Child Protection Plan training in order to provide awareness, prevention, and reporting guidelines.
• We provide our own personal certified nurse(s) and life guard(s) 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

Late Arrival or Early Pickup:
Do you have a scheduling conflict that is preventing your student from coming to camp? We are happy to do whatever we can to enable them to come to all or part of camp. If you need to drop a student off late or pick them up early please fill out the attached form and email it to the Midpoint Staff at midpoint@chcc.org. If you prefer to print the form and turn in a physical copy you can mail it to Attn: Midpoint Staff, Midpoint Student Ministry 3900 Grace Blvd. Highlands Ranch, CO 80126.

EARLY/LATE FORM

Helpful Information:
• Check-in will take place on the February 28 between 5:00-5:30p. Please arrive as early as 4:30p if you can. Buses are scheduled to leave around 5:45p. We will do registration in the Midpoint Worship Center (the far northeast 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 5:00p and drop off in the main circle drive. We will update our social media sources (Facebook) with our ETA on the way home. Find us on Facebook here.

• Parent Meeting: There will be a parent meeting on March 1 at 4:30p for parents prior to the arrival of students in the chapel (the steeple building on the northwest 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 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. Frontier Ranch’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 medication 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 719.395.4111.
