What is your Cabin Leader to camper ratio?
We have one Sr. 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 around lunch time 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. You may leave 1 package at the camp store when you drop off your camper but because of the number of campers that we have - we ask that you just leave 1 it must be a small box or a large envelope to be delivered during the week due to the lack of space and the volume of packages that we receive. You mail any other packages to the camp.

We are working with healthcare professionals and our staff to establish any additional hygiene standards for the summer. The following measures have already been discussed, and more will follow 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.
· Daily temperature checks of camp staff with additional checks for food service personnel.
· 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.
We are not planning on having campers wear masks, adhere to social distancing or other practices that are abnormal for children. We will ask that campers not give “high-fives” or other practices that are normal, but can be redirected to other types of practices like elbow bumps, etc. This all goes back to our second directive from our camp board, we want our campers to have a good camp experience, that is not alien from what is expected at camp.
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.
