Cedar Lake Ministries’ Winter Camp

 
The experience of getting away from it all for a weekend gives the opportunity for students to evaluate their relationship with Christ. It allows them to see the importance of “simply” seeking Jesus before conquering the fears and worries of the world. At Cedar Lake Ministries we want to be a part of the powerful work that Jesus does and in doing so we present to you our Winter Camps this February 12-14, or February 19-21. Students will enjoy teaching from dynamic speaker Matt Willingham on what it looks like to keep ourselves FRESH in the Spirit, and be filled by the Spirit through worship with the Heartland Christian Center Youth Worship band.

What to Bring

  • Bible
  • Modest, warm clothes (long pants, long-sleeved shirts, sweatshirts, pajamas)
  • Winter gear (gloves/mittens, winter coat, hat, boots)
  • Extra shoes and socks
  • Flashlight
  • Toiletries (toothbrush and paste, deodorant, shampoo, soaps, etc. [Weekend Camps Only])
  • Money for the Kandy Kabin*
  • Water bottle with owner’s name
  • Regular or emergency use prescription medications (e.g. inhalers, EpiPen®, solid or liquid meds [all medications, including over-the-counter, should be in possession of a leader throughout the weekend]).

What NOT to Bring

  • iPods/iPads, laptops, cell phones**, video games, or similar electronics
  • Clothing with questionable slogans or products
  • Non-prescription drugs, tobacco, alcohol, fireworks, weapons (knives, guns, tasers, lighters, or any other items that may cause harm)
**Part of what makes camp unique is the ability to limit distractions. Therefore, we ask that campers leave their cell phones, music-playing devices, and other electronics at home. We understand that many people use their devices as their Bible, but for this event, please encourage your camper to bring his or her paper version of the Bible. This is not a punishment but an opportunity to limit distractions and open up opportunities for quality conversations and time with God. Plus, expensive devices can get broken or lost at camp.
*The Kandy Kabin is open at designated times for campers to purchase candy, pop, or a souvenir. Prices for items range from approximately $0.50 for candy to $35 for merchandise. For Winter Camp, students keep their money in their possession. We encourage students to bring $10-$50 for the camp store and to leave other valuables at home.
 
Cedar Lake Ministries is not responsible for any lost, damaged, or stolen items. Please be aware that this is not a comprehensive list of what your camper shouldn’t bring to camp but some of the obvious things to avoid bringing to camp. Also, remember that Cedar Lake Ministries reserves the right to confiscate any inappropriate items on this list, to be returned to a responsible adult to distribute to the camper upon arrival home.
 
 

Health and Safety

 
Medical Conditions
We are used to working with campers who may have food allergies or other medical conditions (food intolerances, asthma, behavioral issues, diabetes, etc.). To best care for your child, please inform us on the registration form of any allergies or medical conditions so we can effectively prepare to provide great care for your child. If after reviewing your registration form we have further questions, our Program Coordinator, Food Service Director, or Camp Nurse may contact you prior to camp to ensure proper care will be provided.
 
Health Care
Since safety is a priority, 24-hour care by a trained LPN or RN will be available. In case of injury or emergency, the Camp Nurse will be available for basic care and to administer over-the-counter medications. However, the Camp Nurse will not administer prescription medications to campers. Youth leaders and parents should discuss each student’s health needs and plan how to oversee proper administration of prescription medications while at camp.
All medications, including over-the-counter, should be kept by a leader.
