2020 Jonathan Creek Camps
We exist to proclaim the Gospel and to see God transform lives, grow leaders, and partner with the church to the glory of Christ. Specifically, we want to see students and kids find true joy in an abiding relationship with their heavenly Father and Creator. We strive to do that by coming alongside the local church every summer through camp to focus on Biblical teaching, discipling relationships, and to encourage a worshipful focus in all areas of life. At Jonathan Creek, which is just forty-five minutes outside of Paducah, it is our prayer that your student will enjoy all of the fellowship, activities and fun we have to offer, but ultimately that he or she will walk away with a lasting joy in the Lord.
Our housing does not guarantee you will be the only group in that space. We will always separate genders but some groups will need to share bunks/rooms/floors with other groups.
Just steps away from the Price Dining Hall, this dorm-style housing is perfect for large groups looking for value. It has four wings, with each wing sharing a large bathroom. The large lobby in the center is perfect for hanging out between sessions.
Kids 3-Night $267 | Student 4-night $273 | Student 5-night $348 (per person)
Gray Motel is focused on affordability, comfort, and convenience. This motel-style accommodation is perfect for groups of all sizes. From the rear deck, guests overlook a grassy area that boasts a panorama view of the lake and our magnificent sunsets. Each room has four bunk beds (sleeps 8) and a private bathroom.

How many adult leaders should I bring?
An important aspect in the ministry of Crossings is the relationships that students build with the adult leaders from their church. Crossings requests one adult for every five students (gender specific) in order to facilitate discipleship between students and adults that will extend beyond camp. As your students will be looking for guidance from the adults that come with your church, it is important that you bring adults who are at least 21-years-old, maturing Christians, and can be examples to your students and lead them spiritually.
What is the camp rate and what do the accommodations look like for adult leaders?
The camp rate will be the same for both students and adults. Your adult leaders will stay in the same accommodations as their students overnight. During POIs and recreation activities, we encourage leaders to hang out with their students. They may even participate in activities after every student has had their chance.
May adult leaders bring their young children?
Our facilities do not have accommodations for parents to bring children who are too young or too old to register for that camp session.
Can I get a refund if someone from my group drops out?
The Early Bird $25 deposit is non-refundable but is transferable toward the final balance until February 28. Registration deposits after February 28 are both non-refundable and non-transferable.
What is the dress code and are life jackets required?
We ask that all students and adults dress modestly.
Yes. Life jackets are required at all times. For females and males, shorts need to be longer than fingertips when arm is extended down the side of leg. We do not allow spaghetti strap tank tops, any tops where undergarments can be seen, or any shirts with the sides cut out. Swimsuits must be one piece, no exceptions. For females, shorts must be worn over swimsuits at all times, even in the water. For both males and females, shirts must be worn at all times when walking to and from the lake/pool.
What about laundry, cell phone reception, and spending money?
There are no laundry facilities available on property, so bring enough clothes for your entire stay. Camp phones are available for your use if you do not have reception and need to make an emergency call. Lastly, students can purchase beverages, snacks, convenience items, books, and Crossings apparel at our Shack and General Store.
Do you have first aid? Where do we go if someone gets sick or injured?
We have basic First Aid supplies on hand. More serious injuries can be treated in Paducah, KY 45 minutes to the north.
What if I have a student with food allergies?
If you have a student with food allergies, please make sure this is noted on their 2015 Crossings Medical Release Form. The staff will do everything to accommodate them and keep the kitchen staff aware of the student’s needs. Please advise your student to find a member of the kitchen staff to discuss their options during meal times. At Kids Camp, please send an Adult Leader with your student to the Food Service Director.
Does it cost extra to do the activities?
Crossings is an all-inclusive and any activity that your students, adult leaders, or you may want to participate in is already included in the registration price.
What time will my group arrive and leave camp?
Arrival times are on the first day of camp between 2:00 and 4:00 PM in 10-minute windows. You will be able to sign up for a window two weeks before camp when our hospitality staffer calls you. All student camp groups must depart by 9:00 am the last day of camp. Kids camp groups must depart by 10:30 am.
What age ranges can attend student camp ?
Student camp is for students entering 7th grade through graduated seniors.
