AWAKEN: Youth Summer Camp | Frequently Asked Questions

What meals will be provided at the camp?

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner are all provided daily! Gluten-free options will also be available. When you sign up online please let us know if you have any other allergies (dairy, gluten, etc.).

 

What time does the camp start? What time does it end?

Monday through Wednesday, the camp starts at 9 AM and ends at 8 PM. On Thursday, we will be leaving to go to Vancouver at 7:30 AM and staying overnight. On Friday morning, we will leave Vancouver to go to Cultus Lake Waterslides and arrive back at the church between 6 and 7 PM. Parents can pick up their youth at around 7 PM.

 

Do the youth stay at the church overnight Monday-Wednesday?

No. Parents can pick up their youth from the church at 8:00PM on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. As much as it would be fun to have the youth stay overnight each day, the leaders need time to clean-up and prepare for the next day’s awesome events. Plus leaders need sleep too!

 

What about the Vancouver Trip?

The Vancouver Trip is taking place in downtown Vancouver and Richmond. We plan to leave around 7:30AM on Thursday and arrive back at Summit Drive Church by 7:00 PM on Friday.

For this trip, we are partnering with Mark Buhler of Faith Fellowship Baptist Church in Vancouver. We will be doing some street ministry on East Hastings Street as well as some international ministry around the City. This will be our third year partnering with him, and it is always a joy!

This year, we are also partnering with the youth group at Bethany Baptist Church in Richmond, who will be joining with us for ministry in the afternoon and for games and fellowship in the evening. We will also be staying at Bethany Baptist Church overnight.

On Friday, we will have breakfast together and then head to Cultus Lake Waterslides to enjoy a day of waterslide fun!

 

Can I choose not to do the Vancouver trip and just come for Monday-Wednesday?

Yes, if you want to come for Monday-Wednesday only just let us know when you register online.

 

How much does the camp cost?

The camp costs $75 per person for the whole week. If you ONLY want to register for Monday-Wednesday and not join us on the Vancouver trip, the cost is $50 per person. If you ONLY want to do the Vancouver Trip, the cost is $50 per person (we are offering a deal to those doing both!)
