Effingham County Methodist Campgroud - YOUTH
Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.
Youth and children are a very important and special part of the activities of the Campground. Youth and children's encampments are held annually during Camp Meeting. These events include local mission work, praise and worship, study time and good ole' fun. Area United Methodist youth workers, along with the Trustees, sponsor the event.
The site has adopted a Safe Sanctuary policy that protects young children and youth from abuse. This policy outlines chaperone guidelines, background checks, and other important children protection policies. This policy can be found in the "Forms" and "Policies" section on this website.
YOUTH CAMP 2021
Welcome to Youth Camp 2021... We are excited to have Youth Camp this year! We also understand that we have to take appropriate measures to ensure the safety of the participants and volunteers involved with Youth Camp. That means Youth Camp will look and feel different than in past years. Out of an abundance of caution, we are limited to the number (40 total) of Overnight Campers we can have on sight. In an effort to be fair, we will be taking Registration on a first-come/first-serve model, beginning with Recent Graduates, rising Seniors, rising Juniors, rising Sophomores, rising Freshmen, rising 8th graders, rising 7th graders, and rising 6th graders. The Registration WILL BE OPEN FOR ONE WEEK for each age group. At the end of each week, we will close registration for one group and open it for the next and continue until the 40 available slots are filled. After the Overnight slots are filled, ALL other youth will be considered Day Campers. Day Campers WILL participate in ALL activities of Youth Camp, with the exception of staying overnight. You will be notified through email or phone call if your youth will be an Overnight Camper or Day-Time Camper.
You can register at anytime for Youth Camp, just know that priority for Overnight Campers will be given to youth as we follow the descending scale from oldest youth (recent Graduates) to youngest youth (rising 6th graders).
The cost for Youth Camp is as follows:
Overnight Youth Camper - $55
Day-Time Youth Camper - $40
We understand this is different and not the ideal situation. However, we want to provide a Youth Camp experience that is safe, meaningful, fun, and filled with memories. As a Youth Camp Staff, we appreciate your understanding and support of Youth Camp 2021.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Rev. Chance S. Ward, Youth Camp Director at 912-667-4903.
