BACKGROUND CHECK POLICY

Each adult who is accompanying the children at camp must have a nationwide 
criminal  background check from a reputable company (i.e.:  Missouri Highway 
Patrol) completed and on file at the association office.  

Adults who do not have a background check on file will not be allowed to stay at camp.
  

It is a requirement by the 1000 Hills Association Camp Board to have this on file at the 
association office.  If you have had a background check in the last 2 years,
you may send a copy to place on file.  Background checks should be renewed every 2 years.
 
Background checks for camp workers are now currently available at a cheaper rate from Campbackgroundchecks.com

2017 Report of the Camp Team Coordinator

 

First, on behalf of the Camp Team, I would like to thank you for your many prayers.  Your camp team is aware that we can do nothing that pleases God unless He is the one leading and empowering us.

Secondly, I would like to inform you of what God did this summer at our two camps.  Youth camp was held during the week of May 30 through June 2nd.  This was the fourth year that we have partnered with the Linn-Livingston Baptist Association to conduct youth camp.  We had 147 campers and 40 workers.  There were 16 professions of faith and 9 youth rededicated their lives to Christ.  This year was our association's highest largest attendance at camp.  At this camp the THBA had:  
     70 campers
     12 workers 
     7 professions of faith

Children's camp was held during the week of July 10-14.  Sarah Mires from First Baptist Church, Kirksville, was our camp director.  we had
     107 campers
     42 total workers (22 cabin leaders and 20 other camp staff)
      8 children trusted Christ as savior and a number of others wanted spiritual conseling

Lastly, I would like to encourage you to consider coming to camp as a cabin leader or worker.  Attendance at our camps is increasing and we need the additional help.  Just as importantly however, being at camp will give you the opportunity to see firsthand how God is working.  If you cannot come to camp, would you consider sponsoring a worker?  
These are the dates for net year's camps:  
     Youth:  July 2-6, 2018
     Children:  July 9-13, 2018

"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy."  (Psalm 126:3)
