WILL MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL BE TOGETHER?
No. Just like the past few years, our Middle School Camp and High School Camp will both be at Pineywoods Camp at the same time. However, just like in years past, our Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers will have separate schedules to allow them to have their own unique and powerful experience at camp with their peers.
COST AND WHY?
All you need to sign up for BSM CAMP is a $100 deposit. Early bird pricing for BSM CAMP starts on February 8 and costs $325. The price increases on March 6 to $350, and then $375 on May 1. This will cover all meals and lodging while at BSM CAMP, transportation, and all camp activities and materials. (Students are responsible for bringing their own lunch on the way to camp.) Electronic, cash, and check payments are accepted.
Are scholarships available?
Partial and Full Scholarships are available for BSM Camp 2017. Scholarship Forms are available for pickup (there are no electronic Scholarship Forms) at Beltway South and North campuses. Parents will need to fill out the Scholarship Form and meet with a Youth Pastor.
WHAT ARE THE ACTIVITIES AT BSM CAMP?
Pineywoods Camp offers a ton of AMAZING activities that are included in the price of BSM CAMP. Included at Pineywoods is the Adventure Park, which includes a 3-story High-Ropes Challenge Course, a Quick Jump free fall platform, automatic zip-line, and trapeze jump. Pineywoods also has a giant swing, climbing tower, human foosball court, basketball courts, swimming pool, canoes, kayaks and much more!
IS THERE A PARENT MEETING AND WHEN?
We will be having mandatory parent meetings! Our Middle School Parent Meeting will be on June 10 @ 9:30am in the Beltway South Campus Gym. Our High School Parent Meeting will be immediately following at 11:00am. If you have students in both Middle School and High School, you will need to attend both meetings.
WHAT IS ADULT SUPERVISION LIKE AT BSM CAMP?
We take a number of adults to make BSM CAMP successful and safe. Our current life group leaders (who have been trained and have background checks) will be the cabin leaders for your students. There will be an RN available for each camp in case of emergency. We also bring adult leaders from our church who will help oversee the safety and spiritual needs of your student.
MY CHILD HAS A FOOD ALLERGY. What are my options?
Pineywoods Camp does not offer accommodations to food allergies. If your student has a known food allergy, please let us know beforehand, and have your student bring their own food. Pineywoods Camp will store any allergy-sensitive foods your student may bring.
what about Electronics?
We recognize that more than ever our culture relies on digital connection, especially via smart phones and other Internet connected devices. To help create the best experience, our camp will be a phone and internet device free environment.
The heart behind this recommendation is to help our students:
- be free from distraction.
- have a chance to unplug (kids and teens need this too!)
- bond with friends and Family Group Leaders at camp.
- reduce homesickness and the need to feel connected to things happening back at home with family and friends.
However, we understand that each family and each camper has unique needs. We want to honor those needs. If you feel that your camper needs to have access to a phone during camp please talk with us ahead of time.
