Health Forms for Youth and Adult Campers:
Health and Departure forms MUST be sent NO LATER than May 15th to the camp you will attend. Please make a copy of the health form for your records before sending to your camp. If you/your child will be attending more than one session (even at the same site) with Crossways this summer, one health form for each session attended is required. The health form contains information about dietary needs as well as health and social/emotional needs that help our staff adequately prepare to serve you/your child's needs to the best of our ability.
Camper Departure Forms:
Health and Departure forms MUST be sent NO LATER than May 15th to the camp you will attend. Every camper must have a departure form on file, signed by a parent/guardian, stating the names of adults authorized to pick the camper up from camp. We will not release any camper to any adult not listed on this form. If plans change and different adults will be picking your child up from camp you can call the camp or fill out a new departure form to bring with you to check-in at the start of your camper's session.
Summer Camp Parent Guide:
The parent guide includes our summer Bible study theme, packing lists, information on where to find directions to camp, as well as camp policies on technology, contacting your camper during the week, homesickness, and more. Be sure to read this document thoroughly at least two weeks before your child's week at camp!
