Arkansas Church of God Youth Camp is not responsible for any items lost or stolen at Youth Camp.
We don’t use cash at Youth Camp. Cash money is exchanged for “Camp Cards.” These cards are simply carried by the camper and each time they make a purchase that amount is “punched” off the card. In this way no “real” money is lost or stolen. Each camper should write their name on each camp credit card so that it can be returned if found. At the end of camp, if any camper has left over camp credit cards an amount equal to their remaining credit will be returned to them. During Kids camp, counselors hold campers money and, in many cases, camp credit cards so that they can keep track of the card & the campers spending. The young campers tend to blow through their money pretty quick so counselors are encouraged to keep an eye on them.
Camp Safety and Administration
Arkansas Youth Camp is a wonderful place for kids to get away from life’s pressures and share time with friends while having fun in a Christian environment. Every attempt is made to provide the utmost security and safety for your child. Around the clock emergency first aid medical care is provided. The entire camp staff are carefully screened to make sure that they are suitable to work with campers.
Training sessions for all our staff is mandatory. The camp board of directors (composed of the Camp Director and the State Board) have been empowered to make decisions in the best interest of the Arkansas Youth Camp and those attending. All Campers and their parents/ guardians recognize the board of directors as the authority in any altercation or situation.
Health & Medical Info You Need To Know
Medical Insurance is provided as a secondary coverage to the primary insurance of the camper’s family.
All medications will be administered by a nurse. Prescriptions should be clearly labeled. Please send only the exact amount for the time at camp. Medications should be checked in and out with the staff nurse during registration and camper check out.
Head Lice Policy
We have a NO TOLERANCE POLICY REGARDING HEAD LICE AND NITS. Each camper and staff member are checked by our nurse and staff during the registration process. If infected, the child will be returned to the care and responsibility of the person who brought them. They will not be permitted to join the camp until they have been treated and checked again by the staff nurse. All registration money will be returned in full (less the $75 deposit) after the camp season has ended if the camper does not return to camp.
Please submit refund requests in writing by post or email. Requests will be processed and mailed at the end of the camp season. All money prepaid will be refunded minus the non-refundable $75.00 deposit.
