Campers need to bring a lunch and water bottle. If they’re signed up for the "Get Messy" skill, they will also need a change of clothes. If you have any questions about our clothes-changing policy, please ask.
Snacks are included. Campers bring their own lunch or they may purchase lunch at camp (only offered at some locations). We also ask that you do not pack peanuts in any form for your campers.
We also ask that you please write your campers name on their lunches!
Your camper needs to wear comfy clothes (i.e. gym shorts and a t-shirt) that you don't mind getting a little messy. We also ask that your campers wear closed-toed shoes. Make sure to apply plenty of sunscreen as some of our activities and recreation will take place outdoors.

Each group, or what we call a "Pack," has around 18 kids. Local church volunteers and Connect Camps counselors team up to lead groups. This helps ensure a low 10:1 ratio of campers to adults.
We see camp as a great opportunity for your campers to make new friends in their age group. You can request for your camper to be in the same group as a friend in your registration under "special concerns," but we cannot make any guarantees.
All middle schoolers at Connect Camps are involved in One-Eight skill. This ultimate service opportunity is more than just a skill.

Check Out will take place at 2:00 pm before this closing session on Friday, that way you can take your camper home with you as soon as it's over at 3:30 pm.
At the end of each day, we’ll send your camper home with some great questions and topics to continue the conversation about what they learned at camp around your dinner table.
We do not have specific programming for campers with special needs.
We are happy to provide a volunteer to serve as a shadow if this is something you feel is necessary for your camper. Please let us know in advance if this is something you need so we can work with your church host to find the best volunteer for your camper’s needs.
Unfortunately, if your child is not able to participate in camp activities, we won't be able to host them at camp. We want our campus to be a safe and fun environment for each camper!
• Powder Springs, GA: We will have a team of 30+ volunteers to accommodate campers with special needs. We can't promise that your camper will have their own shadow, but please communicate with your church host to see if a suitable volunteer is available. These will be handled on a case by case basis.
Scholarships, or discounts, are given out by the church that is hosting your week of camp. If you have questions about who to get in contact with at your location, feel free to contact us at (706) 310-6055 and we will get you in touch with the right people.
