Activity Schedule – BY GROUP AND DAY


Group Leaders (Sheriffs & Deputies) ARE required to attend the on-site training before their week of camp. See the details of training info here. This info is in each group binder which goes with the group to all their activities on site. It contains the camper attendance list, policies, forms, etc. There is a separate binder with game instructions for the Deputies.

On-site Training specifically for group leaders and assistants/support staff is the Saturday before each week of camp. Please attend at least one before your week of service. These are to familiarize you with property, schedule, activities and with fellow volunteers, and to pray for campers and staff. Dates: June 10, 24, July 8, 22         Time: 9-3 (lunch provided)       Dress outdoorsy (t-shirt, closed toe shoes, long shorts or pants). Bring your Bible and a watch (if you have one).
