Opening Day

Here are a few details to help you arrive on time and prepared for an amazing week! Just make sure you don't forget your amazing release forms. Seriously, just don't. 

Opening Day Order of Events

1. 3pm, Check in begins

Once we get a little closer to camp, you'll receive an email with the location of the dorm where we'll be staying for the week. Check in and our closing ceremony will occur at that location. At 3pm we'll begin checking in each camper and, once we receive your completed release forms, you'll receive your room assignment and be able to drop off your bags, meet your roommate, and settle in for a few minutes. 

2. 4pm, First Run

We call this the "shake out" run. It's really just a chance to meet your group leader and running group, and stretch your legs after a day of travel. This is usually when parents say their last goodbyes and give a final wave.

3. Dinner

You're going to be pretty hungry, but don't eat too much because next up is...

4. Frisbee

Don't worry, we're not that cruel so this is the only time you're going to eat a meal and then run out to play frisbee on a full stomach. We'll put together some fun matches (nothing serious) so that campers can get a feel for the game. Official frisbee team assignments we'll be announced the following day.

5. Downtime and Showers

Next you'll have a little time back at your room to settle in some more, meet the counselors in your hallway and grab a quick shower. 

6. 9pm, All Camp Meeting

At 9pm our first official camp meeting will begin. You'll meet the entire staff and hear a little about each person and then camp director Drew Ryun will give everyone a glimpse into what the week holds. He'll also lay down a few ground rules...he does that. 

7. 10pm, Lights out

And you're going to be glad they are. Feeling great and really not that tired? We'll ask you how you feel when it's time to get up the next morning. 

Closing Day Order of Events

1. 6am - 10am, Wake up, workout, breakfast, morning devotions

The last morning will be very similar to all the other mornings but everyone will return to their rooms around 10am to shower and start packing up.

2. 10:30am Parents begin to arrive 

Campers will be busy stripping beds, cleaning rooms and packing their bags.

3. 11:15 Closing Ceremony 

Our closing ceremony will begin at 11:15 and will normally be conducted in front of the dorm (it's usually in our lecture hall across the street at the Virginia camp). This will conclude by 11:45am and camp will officially be over. Campers will be packed up and ready to leave with parents or on shuttles.
