You don’t want to miss out!

We have been praying all year that your child is continuing to grow in the Lord. And we are specifically praying that that this weekend will be a refreshing & fun experience that will equip your child to take on the rest of the busy school year! We hope they will come out & join us as we dig into God’s Word & focus on Him, all while having an absolute BLAST with some whacky activities around camp!

Additional Info

As we seek the safest and most effective ways to continue running our programming, we will be tracking the latest CDC and PA Health Department recommendations. Our goal is to maintain a safe environment by educating our campers and staff on safe practices and risk management. This will include a regular routine of sanitizing the facilities as well as regulating proper hygiene for the campers and staff within their daily routine. Camper group sizes will be regulated and cohorted to manage exposure potential. Common areas will be used only by one group at a time and will be completely sanitized/disinfected between groups.

Masked/gloved staff members will be serving food to campers from behind serving tables with plexiglass barriers. Rigorous sanitation of food service and dining areas will be in place. Campers will be provided areas where they can eat their meals in a socially distanced setting.

While we will not be requiring campers or counselors to wear masks all day, we will ask each camper and counselor to bring a mask along for certain settings where social distancing may not be possible. For outdoor play and indoor activities where the campers can spread out, we will not be requiring masks. However, as parents, if you prefer that your child wear a mask, they are welcome to do so.

Campers will be reminded to wash hands often, socially distance where possible and practice good hygiene during camp to preventing the spread of Covid19 and other illnesses.

Campers will undergo a health screening at drop off which will include a temperature check and health risk questions. We ask that families keep sick campers at home. Families will not be charged for campers that are kept home because they are sick.

Campers should come prepared to spend time outside every day the weather permits. We are thankful for the 150 acres and spread out facilities here at camp, and we believe that we can still offer a fun, safe, spiritually enriching experience for your child under the guidelines in place.

$80 per person-includes snacks, 5 meals, two-night stay & all programming. Registration requires payment in full. Cancellations later than 3 days in advance will result in loss of the $80.

* Only one adult/person allowed to get out of the vehicle with the camper at drop off or pick-up. All other persons must stay in vehicle while on camp property*

Drop Off: 7:30 pm on Friday evening. Please park in the main parking lot & check in at the Scott Building across the street (white building with green trim) for your cabin assignments & instructions.

PICK UP: 8:30am on Sunday morning. Campers can be picked up at their cabins. Our goal with the time change is to create an opportunity for our campers and staff to return home and attend church with their families.

This retreat is for all kids, ages 11-16. If you were a Creekside camper last year but have turned 11yo, we welcome you to attend this retreat. We encourage campers to invite a new friend as this weekend is a small taste of summer camp & is the perfect way for a new camper to see the camp in a super friendly environment. You are welcome to request one mutual cabin mate for this retreat & you will have the opportunity to do so during the online registration process.

We are experienced in accommodating special dietary needs. But we need your help with making us aware of dietary restrictions & needs in advance so we can make sure your child’s mealtime experience here is great. Please fill in as much detail as possible in the special diet section of the retreat health form (part of the online registration already) & contact our cook (Erin at foodservice@campsankanac.org) no later than the Monday prior to the weekend to discuss the menu & substitutions. Thank you!

Please bring any medications your child may need in their original as prescribed containers. During drop off on Friday evening, you will have the opportunity to discuss dosage & instructions with our staff who will be administering the medications.
