United Teen Camp is for kids who have completed 6 - 11 grade. 

While at camp, your student can expect to have a ton of fun. We have activities and events planned throughout the day. These events will cover a wide variety of interest and entertainment - team sports, puzzle “escape room” activities, etc. But most importantly, we will prioritize our devotional time as well as our evening services. We expect God to do some awesome things with your students while we camp out! 

The deadline to register is July 19. If you sign up after that, you won't be guaranteed a shirt / camp extras.

housing + staffing

Campers will be split into groups. We will have designated areas for our girls and guys. There will be a significant distance between those camps sites. For every 1-4 campers we will have 1 leader, every 5-9 campers we will have 2 leaders, etc.

snacks + food

Students are free to bring snacks, but the camp site will no be responsible for them. We will also be providing snacks each day. 

Staffing – For every 1-4 campers we will have 1 leader, every 5-9 campers we will have 2 leaders, etc.

nurse / medication

There is one nurse on staff whose sole purpose is to tend to the health and well-being of the campers and staff. They are responsible for distributing medication as needed, as well as administering basic first aid. In the event of any severe illness or injury, campers will be taken to a hospital to be treated. Every effort is made to contact parents to acquire their permission and keep them updated on the camper’s situation. All camper medication, including vitamins and over-the-counter drugs, must be turned into the camp nurse at the beginning of camp. All medications should be placed in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag and labeled with the camper’s name. All medication must come in the original packaging (no pill boxes) and should include a note listing the dosage amounts and frequency of dosage for each medication. Camp nurses will have ibuprofen and acetaminophen (Tylenol) to distribute as needed. 

What To Pack

Luggage should be limited to one suitcase or duffel bag per camper. Please pack siblings separately, and label everything you send with the camper’s name. Please leave all valuables at home.

  • Clothing – appropriate, modest play clothes to wear for day time activities, a jacket or sweatshirt for cool evenings. (Two outfits per day are strongly recommended). No tube tops or spaghetti straps are permitted. No dress clothes please.
  • Modest swimwear – one-piece bathing suit is required (or shirt to cover a 2-piece suit)
  • Pajamas

This camp has been organized by Crossbridge Community Church of the Nazarene and we will do our best to adhere to the NWIL district church’s Biblical principles and see to impart these vital truths in all we do. We have the best interest at heart for our teens and want God’s best for them during the 3 days of camp. Therefore, the following guidelines are respectfully required of each camper and participant

campers are expected to stay with their assigned tent or group and to listen to and show respect to all Crossbridge / United leaders and staff at all times. Campers are expected to participate in all scheduled activities, including meals, sports, and chapel. Immoral conduct, vulgarity and profanity will not be tolerated. Teasing, bullying, and fighting are not allowed and may result in the immediate removal of the camper from camp. Fireworks, sparklers, knives, tobacco, drugs and alcohol are not permitted. If a camper chooses not to be a part of the scheduled program and or disobeys the rules, the parent or guardian will be expected to provide immediate transportation home.

To help maintain a safe camp environment, the following policy has been adopted: Except for ministry staff of our local churches (Pastors/Associate Pastors/Youth Pastors/Children’s Pastors or Directors and/or Ministry Leaders), no teens or adults who are not current United Teen Camp 2020 Leaders/Staff will be allowed access to the Campground or the campers without prior approval from the Pastor in charge.
