School is almost out and what do the children look forward to most? Going to camp of course! The days are filled with services where they learn the importance of salvation and walking closer with God, different electives to participate in, shopping at the Dorcus House* or the concession stand, and making many memories with new and old friends alike for years to come.
And now, it’s that time again.
Every summer during the month of June, the Louisiana District Campgrounds opens its campus to all the children who want to get in on the fun of church camp. Each week the campus is open to different age groups. The first full week of camp is themed and geared for children ages 8 to 11, AKA Kids Kamp. The second week is for the middle-schoolers ages 12 to 15. And, finally, the last week of June is for the high school & college-aged kids from 16 to 21.

Q: How will my child get to the camps? There will be a designated adult or two bringing the children for each week. They will be in contact with you prior your child leaving for camp with details on transportation.
Q: Will the kids be fed? Yes. The kids are provided 3 meals a day in the cafeteria. Snacks can be purchased at the concession stand throughout the day.
Q: How much will camp cost? Each camp costs $155 per child. In this cost, it covers their meals for every day and a camp t-shirt. Parents will be reimbursed when the child comes back from camp.
Q: *What is the Dorcus house? It is a small gift shop for raising money to help ministries such as the Lighthouse Ranch for Boys, Tupelo Children’s Mansion, LA District Campgrounds, Church-In-A-Day and countless other ministries and people around the world. (more here) This is something the children look forward to shopping at when they get to camp.
Q: Do I need to pack anything special? For Kids Kamp, there is a water day on Thursday during free time before the evening service. If your child wishes to participate, they will need to bring a water gun (or five) and a change of clothes.
Q: I want to send my child with spending money. What should I do? You can put a certain amount in an envelop with your child’s name on it for each day and hand it to the person who will be checking them into camp. The money will be handed to the dorm parent over the area your child will be sleeping in and given to them at the beginning of each day.
Q: Anything else I need to know? Three things. First, upon arrival, every child will be inspected for lice. If lice is found, the child will not be able to attend camp and will be sent home. Second, if the child gets sick, there is a nurse’s station for them to be seen at. However if the child is deemed contagious or severely ill, the child will be sent home. The church is not responsible for transportation home if such a situation occurs. Lastly, phones are okay to bring however no photos are allowed inside of the dorms.
That’s it! Make sure to have your child registered NO LATER THAN MAY 21st. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact us via our Facebook page or this website here.
