- Cell phones We understand that cell phones are common among today's youth and may be helpful while traveling to and from camp. However, due to camera and video capabilites and uploading to the internet, cell phones will be collected and stored in the office during the camp session. Cell phones found by Bluewater staff not turned in will be placed in the office, and there will be a required $25 donation to the missions project when retrieving it. We desire campers to have an experience in a natural setting where the distractions are removed.
1) When does the bus leave/return from camp?
The bus leaves the church parking lot at 9:00am on the first day of camp. Campers should be at the church by 8:30am on the first day of camp. Campers will need to eat lunch on the way to camp; please send a sack lunch or money for snacks from the gas station. Youth Camp ends at noon on the last day, and the bus returns to RECC between 4:30-5:00pm on the last day of camp. An early lunch is served before departure.
2) How much money should I send with my camper?
- The canteen is open twice a day, and items are between $1.00-$2.00.
- The camp store has items ranging from T-shirts ($12.00) to Sweatshirts ($40.00) and some items in between.
- The craft cabin is open daily and items range from $0.50 to $2.00.
- BCBC sells a picture DVD with all the pictures and videos from the week at the end of the week for $10.
- The BCBC missions fund is a great way to give, and an offering is taken at the end of each week.
3) Can my child bring a cell phone?
No, cell phones are not allowed. They are collected at check-in. If cell phones are not handed in during check-in and BCBC finds them later in the week, a $25 donation to the missions fund is required to get the phone back. In the event that a camper needs to get in touch with a parent/guardian, they are able to use the phone in our camp office.
4) How should I send medications with my child?
Medications are collected during check-in. Please make sure dosage is legible on the container and please write further instructions if needed. The BCBC nurse distributes the medication to each camper as directed by the dosage instructions. The camp has basic medical supplies in their First Aid Room. Campers are encouraged to bring sunscreen and bug spray as you see fit.
5) What should I send for bedding/towels/etc.?
Campers sleep on bunk beds with single mattresses. You can send either a sleeping bag or bedding for a single bed. Campers will need a pillow and a towel as well.
6) Can I send mail to my camper?
Absolutely! Mail is delivered to campers at supper each night. Note that it may take an extra day to be delivered to camp, so it is a good idea to send your mail before your camper comes to camp. Also, since the mail arrives around 2:00 pm, campers do not receive mail that arrives on their departure day. This is another reason to send it early! If you wish to email your camper, send an email to office(at)bluewatercovcamp.org with his/her name in the subject line. BCBC will print it off and deliver it to the camper. Please limit emails to one per day.
