Policy changes to remember for 2023:
Upon completion of this application, more policies/rules will be gone over by the Director on the first day of arrival. Keep in mind, BWH camp policies are established for the purpose of keeping every camper and staff member safe. If any rules/policies are violated, appropriate discipline will be exercised which could result in sending the staff member home. We are so thankful for your willingness to serve in this wonderful mission for the Lord!
1. We do not allow compromise of any Biblical teaching. Zero Tolerance of any immoral: behavior, agenda, clothing (words or images), and/or conversations.
2. Beechwood Hills summer camp cabins will be organized according to biological gender.
3. It is an electronic FREE week with the exception of the Manager, Director & Nurse for safety. They will be collected upon arrival or leave with parent!
4. Clothing Policy:
Part of the magic of camp is making great friends while being away from home. We ask that there be no social visits to campers or staff during sessions as it can be very difficult on other campers. If any individual plans on volunteering a day or even a few hours, please fill out a staff application and submit this application to the Camp Manager before the deadline of May 1st. A Central Registry Clearance form is also required to be submitted to the State of Michigan to volunteer.
If a visit to the camp is necessary, please contact the Camp Manager prior to visiting at (989) 944-1482. Upon arriving please sign in at the office and present valid photo identification. A visitor badge will be issued at check in and required to be worn during the visit.
I also give my permission to be photographed or videotaped and allow Beechwood Hills to release said pictures for publicity purposes.
