Most important… don’t forget to bring your friends!

Campers will be pre-assigned to housing based on space available and roommate requests. See registration form to indicate a roommate preference, we will try to honor your requests. Church groups will be assigned housing together, based upon gender. No cabin assignments will be changed on check-in day.

Prescott Pines is not responsible for any items left behind, lost, or stolen. After 30 days, unclaimed items become the property of Prescott Pines and will be given to needy families or charitable organizations. We recommend that you leave valuable items at home .

The camp broadcasts a wireless internet signal from the Welcome Center and the Hungry Bear Depot outside of the Dining Hall.  You can access this signal using most wi-fi enabled devices.  Please stop by the Welcome Center to get the access code.

Depending on your provider, you will either have partial cell phone coverage or none at all.  Verizon is the best for now, AT&T is a close second.  Sprint is pretty sketchy and T-Mobile and other smaller companies are probably out of luck.

  • 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.

The Hungry Bear Snack and Gift Shop is available upon request by the group leader. We offer a variety of snacks, hot food items, and fountain and bottled drinks. There is also a selection of souvenirs, t-shirts, gifts and toys to choose from.

We are sorry, but pets of any kind are not allowed at Prescott Pines Camp.  Feel free to become attached to our local wildlife as a complimentary substitution.

While all of our buildings are non-smoking areas, there is a central (and covered) area where smoking is permitted.    Alcohol is not allowed at Prescott Pines Camp.

  • Lodging is assigned according to how many people are in your group and what is available.  Your lodging assignment may not be the same as last year!  We will let you know what has been assigned to you as soon as we can.
  • We only assign you the number of buildings you need.  You will need to assign your campers and chaperons to the individual rooms.
  • You can see floor plans and cabin assignment sheets on our website.
  • Guests must bring their own bedding, towels and toiletries.  Upgraded lodges include bedding and towels, but not toiletries.  Upgraded lodges are also an additional fee.
