Frequently Asked Questions

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 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. For females, shorts need to be longer than fingertips when arm is extended down the side of leg. We do not allow spaghetti strap tank tops or any tops where undergarments can be seen. Swimsuits must be one piece and shorts must be worn over swimsuits, even in the water. For both males and females, shirts must be worn at all times when walking to and from the lake/pool. Life jackets are required for all water activities (these are provided) and they must be fully buckled before anyone steps onto the dock to participate in water activities.

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 a camp nurse? Where do we go if someone gets sick or injured?

This summer we are providing camp nurses for Jonathan Creek and Cedarmore. Their primary goal will be to manage the infirmary and work directly with our staff to ensure the safety of everyone at camp. The camp nurse can assist you in storing and administering medications as well as assessing any situation that comes up within your group.

Does it cost extra to do the activities?

Crossings is 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 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.

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 after March 1. Leaving times are between 10:30 and 11:00 AM on the last day.

What age ranges can attend kids camp?

Kids Camp is for kids entering third grade through entering sixth grade.

What do I need to bring to camp?

For a list of items to bring, visit our 2017 Packing List. We expect the items will be nearly the same for the next year, but we will have an updated version on March 1st, 2018.
