Campers are responsible for their own insurance coverage. Personal insurance information will be collected with the camper’s registrations, and will be kept on file, to be used if the camper needs medical treatment.

Due to the intensity and the scheduling of the programs, the public phones will be unavailable to the campers. As always, our medical personnel will contact you in case of a sickness or injury.

  4. Campers will conform to the camp dress code which is casual and modest.

 

Our staff arrives before camp begins every summer to undergo an in-depth series of training sessions that cover everything from team-building exercises to handling personal tragedies. The following are just a few of the areas in which our staff are trained:

  • How to talk to kids about Spiritual things
  • Working with personalities
  • Leading devotion times
  • Team Building
  • Safety and Emergency Procedures
  • How to deal with homesickness
  • How to deal with tragedy
  • CPR & First Aid

Our training methods prepare our counselors and staff for just about any situation they may encounter, and pave the way for our counselors to give your child the best, most exciting week of their summer!

At Frontier Village the campers sleep in teepees! Teepees have a cement floor, canvas cover and single or bunk beds for 10-12 campers. Teepees do not have electricity, so campers should plan to bring a flashlight. Restrooms and showers are located in the boys & girls bathhouse which do have electricity. Campers should bring a sleeping bag, towel & wash cloth and all toiletries.

In order to keep out the local wildlife, campers are asked not to have open food containers in their teepee.

Our counselors are trained to get to know their campers as individuals, and this forms the foundation for our evangelical technique.  Each week, we present biblically themed lessons during daily chapel that culminate in a Thursday night presentation of the Gospel.  This is paralleled by a week-long skit at town-time that presents the same message dramatically.  On Thursday night, after the climax of the skit and the Gospel message at chapel, the counselors meet with their campers and go more in depth, sharing their own experiences with Christ.  Our counselors understand that each person comes to Christ according to God’s timing, and will never force a camper to make a decision or judge a camper for not choosing to accept Christ.

Our Frontier Village staff is made up primarily of volunteers. Each summer we select a team of high school and college students who desire to spend their summer working with this ministry. From our pool of applicants, we select the most qualified individuals to work with your children.  Applicants provide references and go through an interview process to determine who will make the best candidates for working at Prescott Pines Camp.  Each applicant also is subject to a background check to ensure the safety of our campers.

  • All paid guests are given a wristband when they arrive at camp and are asked to wear it for the duration of their stay.  Anybody on campus who is not wearing a wristband will be asked to check in at the main office.
  • All visitors need to check in at the welcome center upon arrival and will be directed to their group leader.
  • Prescott Pines Camp is surrounded on three sides by National Forest and by private property on the fourth side.  There is a fence surrounding the property and the entrances are both clearly marked.
  • Group leaders can request keys for various levels of security in the lodging.  By default, we will give one master key for each building you are using, mainly for the purpose of unlocking doors that were accidently locked.  If you would like individual room security though, we can provide you with a specific key for each room.  Please keep in mind though that there is a small fee for lost keys.
  • Please do not bring valuables or expensive items to Prescott Pines Camp.  We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.  The safest place to keep these items is in your private vehicle.
  • Our biggest security concern here is the animals.  Squirrels and skunks live fat and happy lives here at camp and are not afraid to walk through open doors day or night.  They also have not figured out how zippers work either and tend to just chew their way through a bag to get to the food.  Please help us out by keeping doors closed, even when you are in the room.

If you submit your registration online, you should receive an email confirmation within a few minutes.  Please check your spam box to make sure it wasn’t filtered.

If you sent in your registration via “snail mail”,  you will receive an email when it is processed, assuming you gave us one on the registration form.  If you did not, then you may verify we received it by calling.  Please give us at least a week to get your registration in the mail and process it before calling.

With enough warning, we are able to accommodate most dietary needs.  Please let us know about your needs via the Dietary Request Form.

If your dietary needs constitute a serious health risk, the safest thing to do is bring your own food.  We can provide refrigeration and a microwave for you to prepare your own meals.

Email Your Camper

camper@prescottpines.org – Email your child while they are at camp.  In order to ensure accurate delivery, please include the Camper’s First and Last Name, as well as the camp name “Frontier Village” in the subject line.

Summer Camp 2017 “Shine” will be an exciting time for kids to come and experience a week at camp. Our hope is to teach these kids about the love of God and it is our prayer that they go home changed. They get to experience kid-friendly worship and sing and dance. We are committed to teaching the Bible in a way they can understand and participate in.
