Summer Camp  2021

Parent and Guardian Information

Covid-19 Update: The Christian Conference Center staff has been learning everything we can about how to best serve our guests during the pandemic.  We have put extra cleaning and safety measures in place for all user groups at the CCC.  We are doing everything in our power to make the CCC as safe as possible for campers, volunteers and staff.  While we cannot completely eliminate the risk of a Covid-19 spread, we can promise that the following measures will be in place: lower bed capacity, socially distanced gatherings, mask requirement in large groups, outdoor recreation whenever possible, and extra air filtration systems in our large group meeting spaces.  Click here for a list of all of our Covid-19 Mitigation Efforts.

Registration: There are 3 ways to register for camp.  1.  Online by clicking on the link below (after Feb. 1).  2.  Download a form and mail it to the Christian Conference Center.  3.  If you're affiliated with a Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) congregation, register through your church office.

Payment:  Payment is due at the time of registration.  Don't forget to ask if your church offers scholarships for camp.  Many congregations help pay part of a camper's fee.  The Christian Conference Center also offers scholarships if needed.

Refunds:  If a camper cannot attend their scheduled camp and can’t switch to another event, we are happy to refund their registration fee (-$15 processing fee).  We do not refund fees for campers who simply do not show up for camp as food and supplies have already been purchased by the time the event begins.  If a camper needs to quarantine or isolate at home because of a Covid-19 exposure and as a result must miss their camp session, the camper can transfer their registration to another event at no charge, or they can receive a refund (minus a $15 processing fee).

What to Bring to Camp:  Click on the link below for what to bring.  Please note - our list is just a starter list.  Campers will also receive a packing list from their event director which may contain 1 or 2 items not listed here that are needed for a specific camp activity for that session.  In addition to the list provided, please bring 2 masks per camper per day of camp.

 

Emergencies:  If you need to reach your camper while they're away, just call our camp office at 641-792-1266.  If no one answers, an on call number will be provided.

Safety:  We take safety very seriously and consider protecting  your children our highest priority.  All of our full-time staff have been through extensive training and participate in professional development in their given fields.  Lifeguards are CPR and First Aid certified.  Safety procedures are in place for emergencies and severe weather.  All volunteers are required to go through a criminal background check, submit character references, as well as complete required training before camp.  All camper activities are supervised.  We feel that we do everything in our power to ensure the safety of our campers and our adult volunteers.
