Sometimes questions just need to be answered! This page will contain a lot of the more Frequently Asked Questions as well as answers. We hope this helps! If your question is not listed below, please feel free to email the KSNE Conference Youth and Young Adult Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: What time should I drop my kiddo off?
A: Registration is from 2-5pm each Sunday
Q: Can I drop my camper off earlier than 2pm on Sundays?
A: It takes a lot of work to reset the camp each week. We have a lot of cleaning, inventories, staff meeting that has to happen before we are ready to receive the next batch of campers. So we strongly discourage early drop offs.
Q: What time should I pick up my camper?
A: Breakfast is at 8:30, and we have staff meeting at 10:00 am sharp. Because of this, we encourage parents/guardians to pick up their campers anytime before 10am.
Q: Should my camper dress up for the weekend program?
A: We don't enforce a camper Sabbath dress code, but a lot of campers do decide to dress up. Some decide to wear nicer Sabbath clothing for the Friday night program, others opt for dressing up for the Sabbath Church program. We have no burden either way, we're just happy they've decided to join us for the week :)
Q: Does my camper need to have a physical before attending summer camp at BAR?
A: We definitely want our campers to be able to navigate the terrain at Broken Arrow Ranch, there is a lot of walking that could require physical stamina. We don't currently require a doctor's sign off. But if you already have a copy on hand, it would be nice to have it on file.
Q: If my camper runs out of money in their Camp Store account, can I add more for them?
A: Yes! You can add money to your camper's store account in UltraCamp at any time during your camper's stay.
Q: Does my camper need to be able to swim in order to participate in any of the activities?
A: We have lifeguards on duty at all water activities, and we require a lifejacket at the boats and jet skis. Being able to swim is a definite advantage, but not a requirement for fun!
Q: Can I visit my camper during their week at camp?
A: Absolutely! Our weekend program is designed to minister to the youth age group, but you are more than welcome to join us for worship, or during the the week. Just as long as it doesn't distract from the program.
Q: Can my camper get baptized at camp?
A: Yes please! We love having baptisms during the summer, it makes for a nice Sabbath blessing after church. It would be nice to know ahead of time so we can plan a program around it, and so you can invite family to attend. But yes, we encourage baptisms at the camp!
Q: Can I call my camper during their week at camp?
A: You bet! Just know that they may be spread all throughout the camp & it might take a while to bring them down to the phone. Appointments are easier, because we can have them in the office prepared to answer the call.
Q: I keep calling the camp & no one answers, what's that about???
A: We do operate regular hours, however not the standard hours you'd expect a business to operate. Most of the work we do is outside and active rather than in an office setting. Our morning worship programming goes until 10am each morning, we break for lunch and rest period, and we're off serving the campers from recreation time through to the end of the evening worship program. But our office manager is in the office answering emails and phone calls from 10-12:20 and again from 2:40-5:00. If you call before 10am or after 5pm there is a good chance you will get the answering machine. However, if you leave us a message, we will get back to you as quickly as we can!
Q: I signed up for Horses, is there anything I should know ahead of time?
A: I'm so glad you asked!
