Friendship Camp 2022

Informational Letter

 

We are extremely excited to say that it is almost time for Friendship Camp 2022!! Things continue to be different these days, and that will carry over to our camps, but we are doing our very best to follow medical, local, and state guidelines for the safety of campers, staff, and churches, yet allow our campers their usual time of fun, spiritual uplifting, friendship-building they are accustomed to. Please note the following changes that will take place because of COVID 19 recommendations for over-night camps:

  • All campers must pre-register. Knowing how many campers to expect will allow staff to make room and bed arrangements.  We are making forms available through a variety of means:

  • Friends of Friendship Facebook page

  • Associational emails/website

  • Missions office in Jonesboro will have copies.

  • Counselors and board members will try to have some copies available.

  • By request, forms can be directly emailed to anyone needing them.

  • Registration/medical forms and the total $140 ($135 for early registration) fee must be submitted for a camper’s pre-registration to be considered complete. Individuals and churches will be able to pay by PayPal or check. Churches/parents will need to include a list of campers the payment covers. If paying by individual check, the registration form should be included. For churches paying for a group, either a list of campers being paid for can be enclosed with the check or the registration forms could be sent with the payment. If paying by PayPal, the fee per camper should be sent to coonmargaret@yahoo.com (which is the camp’s PayPal account).

If mailing payment, please send to:

Friendship Baptist Camp

P.O. Box 542

Winnfield, LA 71483

  • Completed COVID 19 waivers must be signed by a parent or legal guardian and brought on registration day in order that we may be assured all precautions have been followed to keep our campers and staff safe. No camper will be admitted without the signed COVID waiver.

  • Any camper who is found to be ill with COVID symptoms will be quarantined in an isolated location until picked up by parents. We request that any camper sent home with such symptoms be immediately tested and that we be notified of the results.

  • We ask that all churches/families screen campers BEFORE bringing them to camp. If the camper or ANYONE in the household has been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID OR has had COVID symptoms for an entire week prior to opening day, we ask that the camper not be sent to camp.

  • Registration for each camp will begin at 9 AM. Please make arrangements to bring or have campers dropped off between 9 AM and 11 AM. Upon arrival, each vehicle will be given a number. Please be patient and be prepared to wait in your vehicle until your number is raised.

  • In order to protect campers and staff, no adults will be allowed in the dorm facilities except camp staff. Staff will assist campers in transporting their luggage/bedding and setting up rooms.

  • There will NOT be a closing ceremony for any camp, but we hope to resume this next year. A slideshow highlighting events of the week will be posted on the Friends of Friendship Facebook page shortly following camp.

  • Pick-up on Thursday for each camp will be from 3 PM until 5 PM. We will use the same procedures as were used at registration. Campers and their belongings will be brought out assisted by staff.

 

 

Pack your bags:

Pillow, bedding, towels & washcloths, personal toiletries, swimsuit (1 piece or t-shirt covering), comfortable clothing (remember that we want to honor God with our appearance, so no short shorts). Remember to bring your Bible. We will be using it daily.
