Q: What is the dress code?
A:
Campers are to only wear modest clothing. Shorts to the knees and t-shirts with sleeves are recommended for each camper’s daily attire. No one is allowed to wear muscle shirts, thin shouldered tank tops, spaghetti straps, midriff shirts, or tight clothing. We do no regard our dress code as the absolute in right or wrong, but as a balanced approach in harmonizing many diverse opinions and one that reflects being a “vessel of God”. Please accept that when you register, you are agreeing to these rules for the week of camp.

Q: Can I bring food to camp?
A: Yes…however, all proceeds from the canteen go toward FC Scholarships. The procedure as determined by the Camp Highland regarding food is as follows: NO food is to be brought into the cabins. We will honor this request by having each cabin counselor retrieve food items brought to camp and store them in the Pouch during our camp session. Please write your name on any food items brought to camp and secure in a large zip lock bag. We thank you for your support!

You are allowed to make ONE cabin request on your camp application. Please limit your request to someone that is very near your grade and/or age group.

Please note a younger camper will not be placed in a cabin with older campers. However, an older camper may be placed in the cabin with younger campers if the older camper agrees to the request

This camp is designed for campers in grades 6 through 12; Students going into the 6th grade and seniors that have just graduated from High School.

Q: What do I wear for swimming?
A:All water activities are coed – You MUST wear modest clothing over your swimwear. Dark colored t-shirts only and knee length swim trunks are suggested.    

Q: How are cabin assignments determined?
A: By Age/Grade levels. Experience has taught us that grouping similar maturity levels together help campers enjoy a less stressful and more positive camping experience. Sharing an environment with peers and a counselor who can relate to a single specific age group eliminates confusion and complements the camping week.
