What are the camper guidelines?

  • Clothing: Campers, Junior Counselors & Staff are required to be Modest & Decent. (That means to cover parts that shouldn’t show). Tight shorts or pants, shorts shorter than mid-thigh, and pajama-type shorts are considered immodest. Shirts must cover midriffs and bra straps, and not be low-cut. Underwear should not be visible. In general, clothing should be consistent with being Christ-like in mixed company, and not invite inappropriate attention or thought. T-shirts with suggestive pictures or slogans, or promotion of products or businesses inconsistent with Christ-like behavior are also considered indecent.
  • Bring two pairs of shoes. One pair NOT flip-flops for outdoor activities.
  • Parents: please check the clothing brought for camp – ultimately, you are responsible if your child is immodestly dressed.
  • Bring your Bible, a notebook, flashlight, insect repellant, and sunscreen.
  • PDA: Public Display of Affection is heartily DISCOURAGED. If campers (or unmarried staff) are here with their “sweet-heart”, anything beyond hand-holding is unacceptable. We’re here to fellowship as brothers & sisters in Christ. We apply the “6-inch” rule… in other words, if there’s no light between you, then you are too close.
  • Bring an attitude of prayer and a heart that is ready to connect to God.
  • We suggest a plastic bag for soiled clothes.
  • LEAVING the camp for any reason during the week requires parent/ guardian arrangements with the camp dean. An Early Dismissal/ Short Absence form must be completed and signed by the parent and the dean at the time of departure. (See Early Dismissal/Absence Form.)
  • PHONE The camp phone does not have long distance service. If long distance calls are made, a PHONE CARD must be used. Dorm parents have cell phones for use in case of emergency. Campers are encouraged not to bring cell phones to camp. If cell phones are brought, they must be left in the dorm.
  • Visitors (including COOKS, WORKERS, & TEACHERS) should register at the main building (dining hall) each time they arrive on campus. This is to ensure the safety of the campers & also for insurance purposes.
  • Toiletries/Bedding – You are responsible for bringing towels, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, etc
  • You will want to bring a sleeping bag or sheets and a blanket. Don’t forget your pillow.

What should I leave at home?

  • All personal electronics, CD/MP3 players, cell phones, skate boards, inappropriate reading material, video games, alcohol, tobacco products, and fireworks, weapons, magazines/ comic books, matches/lighters, and drugs. Also, leave the water balloons, shaving cream and playing cards at home – these will be provided by the deans.

What are some of the camp rules (expectations while I am at KCA)?

  • Campers agree to abide by the rules for dress code and items they bring to camp.
  • Campers agree to abide by the camp schedule or they will be dismissed.
  • Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated. Campers are expected to treat others in a Christian manner and respect the authority of KCA staff, deans, and faculty. A failure to do so will result in dismissal.
  • Campers who destroy camp property, buildings, equipment, grounds, etc. will be responsible for the cost of repair or replacement.
  • Campers caught stealing or pilfering through others belongings will be sent home.
  • KCA has a zero tolerance policy for anyone possessing weapons, alcohol, tobacco or who ingest or inhale any substance that is harmful and intended to induce a “high”. These actions will result in immediate dismissal
