Common Questions

What is the Deposit?

A non-refundable deposit is $100.00 is required with registration. This is deducted from the camper fee. The balance is due on the first day of your camp week.

Squirt Camp deposit is $35.00 required with registration.

What is your cabin leader to camper ratio?

We have one Cabin Leader and one LIT (Leader in Training) assigned to every 10 campers.

How do you pick your cabin leaders?

We recruit students from Christian colleges from around the Midwest. We also have a number of previous campers that apply to work here at TLC after their first year of college. They go through an intensive screening process, personal interview, background and reference checks. We typically have three times more cabin leaders apply than we have positions available, so we are able to be extremely selective in our hiring process.

What if my child gets hurt?

We have volunteer RN’s who spend the week at camp to oversee medical needs. If your child gets hurt during the week and needs more care than she can provide, they will be sent to the local hospital. You will be notified as soon as possible (usually before they leave).

What is chapel like?

Chapel is age-appropriate in both content and length. Worship is led by a band made up of our counselors and one of our camp directors.

What are your church affiliations?

We are an evangelical Baptist camp that is conservative in theology. Campers from a variety of church affiliations attend our camp and are welcomed.

What about mail?

Mail is delivered during lunch Monday - Friday. Campers who receive packages or 6 letters in one day are thrown into the lake on Friday. This has become a fun camp tradition. We will only accept, daily letters and 1 small package at the ARC (activities center) when you drop off your camper but because of the number of campers that we have - it must be a small box or a large envelope.

Communicable Disease Plan

The following measures are in place, and we will follow any others as best practices are realized.

· Additional soap dispensers placed in each cabin’s restroom.

· Additional hand sanitizing stations place in common areas (in addition to the ones already in the dining hall).

· Additional screening during the check-in process and awareness campaign sent to families before arriving at camp.

· Salad bar and cereal bar changes - use hand sanitizer before use.

· Door handles, restrooms, and other common usage areas throughout camp, including cabins, will be sanitized on a daily basis, and more often for high- traffic areas.

· Other changes as recommended by Health Care and Food Service Professionals.

While we cannot guarantee the health and safety of our campers, we are committed to having each camper have a great camp experience. Our first rule is “Have Fun”, and campers aren’t having fun if they are getting sick or getting hurt. What we are trying to express is that we will do what we can to help campers not be exposed to any type of sickness (like we have every year), and to limit the exposure if it occurs.
