Welcome youth groups!
We are excited to partner with you for our summer
camp program called Base Camp! This program will
allow your junior high and high school campers to
have a great camp experience as we do the footwork
for you. We provide the program, counselors, housing,
food, camp activities, and a great atmosphere for your
campers to grow closer to God.
Base Camp is 7 days long at an all-inclusive price of $375 per camper. Campers will be put into cabins/teams (guys and girls separate) and will go around to all of our camp activities during the week. Our trained counselors will lead them through our Low Ropes Course, laser tag, paintball, etc. The teams will receive points for participation and attitude. The team at the end of the week with the most points will be crowned King of the Mountain!
Our program is designed so that our trained counselors are their leaders in the cabins and for the entire week of camp. As a youth leader, we will let you come for free and provide you with your own room for the week. More leaders are not needed because we would like our counselors to be the ones leading and pouring into the campers. (If you would like to run your own retreat with your own leaders, please see our Retreat information.) We take your students' safety in the cabins and around camp very seriously; if you or the camper's parents have any questions regarding our safety standards, please see our Safety page.
At night, we love our time together at Summit. Summit is our worship service where crazy skits take place and students can engage in dancing, awesome worship, and a message related to our theme for the summer. The theme is a secret to all campers until they get to camp (a highly anticipated part of camp). The spiritual theme will be what the whole week is focused on - the morning devotions, Summit sessions, and cabin times at night.
Everyone loves Theme Nights! Theme Nights are opportunities for campers to dress up according to that night's activities. Keep an eye out for upcoming theme nights on the Base Camp Typical Day page!
At the end of the week, along with King of the Mountain, campers will receive awards for the godly characteristics that we saw them display throughout the week. This allows us to encourage campers and parents that we see Christ working through them!
Book a Week of Base Camp with Us
After talking with us about the dates you would like to attend, we will send you a contract. The contract binds you/your church to be responsible for paying the deposit (20% of your minimum amount of campers) and then to settle up with us in the end. The church is responsible for getting the word out to their campers, signing them up/filling out forms, and receiving payments from them. You/the church will get them here to Palomar and will pick them up on the last day. Lastly, relax while you're here! You are able to hang out with your kids and not have to worry about running the program.
If you are interested in booking with us for a week of Base Camp, please contact Trish Guinn at (760) 742-3400 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org!
