Camper Expectations and Packing List
Grace Adventure’s mission is to impact people with Jesus Christ. We believe very strongly that your child is a precious gift from God. Therefore, we want to do all that we can to provide the best camp experience for your child. It is our desire to remove anything that would distract, hinder or prevent us from creating such an experience and fulfilling our mission. By no means are we saying these things are immoral. Rather, we are choosing to stay true to our mission. We ask for your help in creating this environment.
Over the past years, the standard of acceptable clothing in our culture has changed dramatically. In today's society, the "less is more" mentality is displayed in various ways from low cut jeans and shorts, to tight shirts showing midriffs, to exposed boxers and bras. Please understand that Grace Adventures is committed to protecting the innocence of your child in the midst of a camp setting.
With this in mind, we will ask campers who are inappropriately dressed to change into clothing that is acceptable. Inappropriate dress includes, but is not limited to, short shorts, tight tank tops, spaghetti straps, crop tops and clothing supporting beer, tobacco or secular music groups, etc.
Furthermore, Grace Adventures is also committed to creating an environment that is both physically and emotionally safe for your camper. Respect and responsibility is the standard of conduct. Grace asks that while at camp everyone respects God, authority, others, self and property. We appreciate your sensitivity and cooperation with this matter.In order to create a physically and emotionally safe environment for each camper, please see the list of items below that are not permitted and will be confiscated:
