A Special Note To All Attendees

We are excited about another spring youth camp and will do our best to accommodate as many as we can. While we understand that every group needs chaperones and youth leaders, we have to request that you work patiently with us as we try to accommodate each one. We request that the chaperones and youth leaders also be counselors. There are, of course, motels in nearby Deridder and Kinder but reservations should be made as soon as possible. The hotels will not block rooms for our group, nor will they provide a group discount. Thank you for all your support and keep this camp, and all that attend, in prayer. Please note: There will be a $5 late registration fee increase effective March 15th until camp time. Please make sure you submit your form and payment ASAP
