The following is an overview of our Next Level and Elevate camps.
Registration is between 12:00PM and 2:30 P.M on opening day. Please do not arrive at the school before noon as the staff are making final preparations for your arrival. Arrive with enough time to settle in, unpack and become familiar with the campus. The first program of the week begins at 3PM SHARP.
All participants will sleep in classrooms or a gym at the school. Bring a sleeping bag, foam padding, cot or an air mattress (twin-size only). No recreational vehicles, buses or cars may be used for lodging.
Due to contractual agreements, we cannot allow groups to sleep at the school the night before camp begins. Check local hotels for the best rate.
Lunch is NOT provided on the first day of camp. Dinner will be served at 5:15PM.
You will be divided into small work groups of 5-7 youth and 1 adult chaperone. Small work groups, worksite assignments and additional work-related directions will be handed out on opening day. We do our best to balance males and females, and experienced and inexperienced people on each team.
Each participant will be working with a team of people who are not from their own church group. This may be uncomfortable for some at first, but team members quickly form friendships. For many this becomes a highlight of the week. This arrangement also provides many different experiences for your group to share when they return home. All young adults (18-20 years old) will be placed in work teams together.
The day will end with mass, which will fulfill the Sunday obligation.
