Scholarships available

Write "Scholarship Requested" on the top of the camp form and pay $55 instead of $110 for those needing a scholarship.  An additional requirement is a thank you letter from the camper to the camp.  This letter from the camper may be included with the registration or it can be written and turned in to the director at the camp.

We invite you to send a few cabin leaders (age 21 and up) or assistant cabin leaders (age 19 and up) to the camp with your teenagers.  All cabin/assistant cabin leaders must have a background check completed.

Intro to Camp 2021 June 25-26

3:30 pm Friday—1:00 pm Saturday

For kids who have completed grades 1-2 and are too young for Children's Camp. A great way for children not old enough to attend a full week of camp on their own to experience what camp will be like.  This is an overnight stay with all the activities encountered in a normal week of camp.  Parents are encouraged to join their children for this experience.

2020 Report of the Camp Team Coordinator
 

As I write this report we are still in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. I'm sure everyone is aware that our camp team came together in June and regretfully made a decision to cancel camps for the summer. There was a lot of thought and prayer before that decision was made. Our camp team worked very hard preparing and had everything in place, ready to have camp. In the end, it turns out that all camps at Grand Oaks were cancelled for the summer. I'm confident that our Lord and Savior was fully aware of what would take place and continued in his plan of salvation and discipleship of our children and youth.

Now we begin to plan for next year's camps.   We will kick off the summer in June 2021 with our youth camp. This camp is for our youth who have finished 6th-12th grades. Once again we will team up with the Linn/Livingston Assn. and the dates will be June 7th-11th. Also in June, there will be an "Intro to camp" for children beginning 1st or 2nd grades. This is an overnight camp that they will attend with a parent or guardian that gives them a sense of comfort of what to expect when they attend our week- long children's camp. The dates for "Intro to camp" are June 25th and 26th. We will finish the summer in July with children’s camp. This camp is for our children who have completed 3rd-6th grades. The dates for this camp will be July 26th-30th. If you have a child who has finished 6th grade, He or She may attend children’s, youth, or both camps. Please be in prayer along with our team as we prepare for next year's camps. We will provide more details as they come along. I look forward to seeing what great things God has in store for us in this next year. I want to thank the association for the opportunity to serve our Lord and Savior.
