Volunteers: What to Bring


  • BIBLE - Most important item to bring!! 
          Otherwise known as your SWORD, the WORD of GOD!  Our campers will receive a bible to use at our Fireside Chat.  It would be a wonderful example for our staff to also have one in their possession to read!

  • Closed toe and Closed heel shoes with rubber soles i.e. running/tennis shoes, Teva/keens, hiking boots (If possible, preferably bring 2 pair of shoes) Open toed Chacos & Flip Flops are NOT close toed. Only wear pre-camper arrival, in cabin, and post-camper departure. Also bring an extra pair of shoes you don't mind getting wet and muddy.

  • Bath Towel, Wash Rag, Beach Towel,

  • All toiletries - toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, soap, deodorant, etc.

  • Shorts, lightweight pants, Capris (ladies) - as many changes as you feel you will need for 4 days (and more!)  It will be hot, and you will sweat, ALOT.

  • Plenty of socks/undergarments (remember that sweat thing)

  • Sleeping Bag/Bedding for Twin Bed - YES, there is air-conditioning - so maybe a blanket.

  • Pillow

  • Flashlight

  • Swimsuit and T-shirts.  You will be given 2 Camp T-shirts that will be washed daily for use the following day.

  • Sleepwear 

  • Alarm Clock - Coaches, you will not have use of your cell phone in the bunk areas with the campers.

  • Any medicines you take


  • Electronics (Exemption made for cell phones.)

  • No knives, guns, brass knuckles, pocketknives, any weapon or anything that could be used as a weapon.

  • No Shirts/ Clothing that has questionable language, gestures, sayings or objects that would be offensive or suggestive.

  • Books, Kindles, Nook e-books.  You most likely will not have time to read them while at camp. 

Cell Phones:

     Volunteers are permitted to bring their cell phones to camp. Coaches can leave their phones charged in the main headquarters (HQ) area, where they can access them during nightly breaks to check messages and make calls.

Support Staff volunteers are requested to keep their phones in their cabins and refrain from carrying them during camp activities.

Ginger and camp staff will have their phones with them for emergency purposes only.

***Please remember that the privacy and safety of our campers are highly important. Therefore, we strictly prohibit taking any pictures of campers with personal cell phones. ***


       Lastly, prayer is key! If you haven't already begun, please start now, lifting up our staff, coaches, campsite, and the entire camp experience. Pray for the safe arrival of all campers, and for God's protection and guidance throughout our time together. Let's pray for unity, safety, and for the presence of God to be felt by each camper. May they leave with boosted self-esteem, a renewed sense of hope, and a deep understanding of God's unconditional love for them.
