Midsouth Covenant Camp

Frontier camp

August 5-11, 2018

Midsouth Covenant Camp is a summer camp organized by the Midsouth Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church and located in Grapeland, TX, where we rent Frontier Camp.

The primary goal of the camp is to show each camper the love, knowledge, and saving power of Jesus Christ.

Students entering grades 2—9 will enjoy programs tailored to their age (grouped by grade levels 2nd-4th/ 5th-6th/7th-9th).

The theme for camp this year will be “COLORS: Family Matters” based on the story of Joseph found in Genesis 50:20-21.

summer campActivities include a wide variety of water activities, riflery, archery, volleyball, basketball, rope swing, horseback riding, skate park, climbing wall, and crafts.

Camp Registration forms are available online (The $50 deposit and registration fees can also be paid online.)

Printed registration forms are available in Redeemer’s foyer or office.

Camp Costs: The 2018 camp registration fee is $475.  All registration forms must include a $50 deposit to reserve a place for each camper, and can be submitted by mail, FAX, or scan.

Save money with Early Registration!  Early registration is $425 (when the $50 deposit and completed registration forms are postmarked by June 15).  All campers who register by July 15 will receive a t-shirt upon arrival at camp.  Additional t-shirts may ordered for $10 each.  A waiting list will be maintained for registrations received after cabins are full.  All camp balances are due by August 5 at check in.  Payments can also be made online.

Counselors in Leadership Training (CILT) is a learning track for qualified high school students who have an interest in developing leadership skills and becoming camp counselors.  They attend special CILT training sessions while at camp and participate in regular cabin and camp activities where they get “hands on” training experience.  CILT applications are due by June 1 and upon acceptance into the CILT program, they register as a camper.  Camper registration and deposit due June 15.  CILT registration cost is $375.

Counseling Staff is primarily made up of trained volunteers from Covenant churches in the Midsouth Conference.  All staff members attend a training session for instruction about the camp’s purpose and procedures, as well as general counseling techniques.  Parents often volunteer as  counselors while their own children attend camp.
