Summer Kids Camp Update 3-20-20

As a result of this Coronavirus and the impossibility to prepare camps effectively, the securing of cook teams, summer staff, etc., the BCNM will not be holding summer camps. One aspect of this decision is that we recognize that even attempting camp would put an increased financial and burden on individual families and local churches. In these days, some families are going to have to tighten their belts as never before.  If you have any questions about Camp or Team Kids,

please contact Deanna Kartchner or Jessica Allsup.

Camp Parent Meeting & Paperwork Deadline

 is Wednesday, April 15th, 5:30 p.m.

There is a packet of paperwork that must be filled out correctly, signed by parents, and notarized. Without the proper paperwork, campers will not be allowed to register when we get to camp. This meeting will give us the opportunity to share some important information with campers and parents and will be a great opportunity to fill out all the paperwork, ensure it is complete and correct, and have it notarized. 

Please bring the following information to help in filling out the paperwork.

Your child’s insurance card or a photocopy. We can make a copy of the card for you at this meeting. The name, address, and phone number of your child’s doctor.

It would be very helpful for all parents to attend this meeting, but we understand that in some cases it won’t be possible. If you cannot attend the meeting, please get in contact with either Beau, Anita, or Tammy to get the paperwork ahead of time, so your child can turn it in at youth on April 15th. There is also an agreement that must be submitted online. Please let us know how best to provide you with this link. Thank you for giving your child this incredible opportunity.
