Additional Policies Relevant to the Retreat Coordinator
AGES FOR RETREAT ATTENDANCE
PB&J Retreat is a discipleship camp focused on 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. It is important that these guidelines be followed, for we want your campers to receive effective ministry on a level that is most appropriate for their age. If you have any question on whether or not a camper meets the age criteria for your camp, please contact the OCM Office.
Any Volunteer Staff who serves as a Coach, must be 18 years old or older. Since Coaches are responsible for the campers in their room, legally they must be an adult. Support Staff must be at least 17 years old or older. No exceptions.
Guests are not allowed at camp, except credentialed ministers with the Assemblies of God. Likewise, Volunteer Staff may not bring children who do not meet the Camper age requirements. No exceptions.
SUBSTITUTIONS, LATE REGISTRATION, AND CANCELLATIONS
Camper substitutions may be made at no additional charge. We will try our best to accommodate t-shirt sizes for substitutions. (Substitutions for Staff are not allowed.)
We cannot guarantee T-shirts for changes or additions made after Nov. 3rd.
REGISTRATION FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
All OCM Camps have a “Nit-Free Policy”. As the Retreat Coordinator, it is your responsibility to facilitate two lice checks – one two weeks prior to the retreat and one the day of the retreat. This procedure is required for retreat attendance. Each Retreat Coordinator will be asked to sign an agreement during registration that states every person in your group has been checked. Any person found to have lice at camp will be sent home immediately; transportation is the responsibility of the church.
All prescription medication must be sent to camp in the original prescription container, and the label must display camper’s name, physician’s name, and pharmacy. This includes inhalers.
All over-the-counter medication must be sent to camp in original packaging with current expiration date clearly visible. If expired, medication will not be administered at camp.
The Concession Stand will be available during PB&J Retreat. Encourage campers to bring spending money. Since PB&J Retreat is just an overnight event, the Camp Bank will not be available.
Registration will begin at 4 p.m. in the Dining Center. Medical Forms and medication for both Campers and Staff will need to be turned in at this time.
