FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

July 21-25, 2021
Graduated 5th-12th grade students. Elevate Summer Camp is one week this year, including both middle and high school students!
Camp will be at the Ocoee Ridge Camp in Ocoee, Tennessee (about an eight-hour drive from Raleigh). You can check out their website for more information.
The cost of camp is $350.This covers meals (both travel meals and camp meals), lodging for five nights, transportation to and from camp, activities (including whitewater rafting and/or tubing),T-shirts, activity supplies, and administrative costs.

We offer two types of discounts. The first is our early bird registration from March 1-14. There is a $50 discount for anyone who registers ​and pays in full ​during this time.

After early bird registration, you will need to speak with your student director concerning scholarships. Scholarships are based on criteria such as financial needs and family size and are limited to the amount of scholarship money available. To apply for a scholarship to camp, please email Amanda Springer.

We travel in charter buses. Each bus holds 55 people.
We stop for lunch both ways. Lunch is provided and included in the cost of camp.
Our goal is to provide one chaperone for every five students. Most of our chaperones are your students’ weekend small group leaders, but we also enjoy having parents and other adults there as well. If you are interested, we would love to talk more about it with you. Chaperones are with students throughout the day during worship, meals, small group time, activities, and lights out. And yes, every chaperone is background-checked and trained prior to camp.
No. The cost for leaders is $150. Leaders can register here.
We try our best to place students in their normal weekend small groups (separated by gender, grade, and campus). There are instances where we may have to combine/split groups because of size.
Students will stay in bunkhouses. Each room has six bunk beds for a total of 12 occupants. Each room will have two leaders and 10 students (to follow our 1:5 ratio), meaning each room will contain two small groups. Each room has its own bathroom for the 12 occupants. And we hope it’s a no-brainer that boys and girls will be separated.

All the activities are run by Ocoee Ridge Camp staff and Adventure Unlimited. Both of these organizations are in compliance with state and federal rules and regulations.

Please review our COVID-19 guidelines.

High School students go whitewater rafting. Middle school students go tubing. We partner with Adventure Unlimited for this activity.
We bring two registered nurses with us to camp to assist with medication and any emergencies.
Lights out varies for middle and high school but is anywhere from 10:30-11 p.m.
Ocoee Ridge Camp provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner and offers alternate choices (with advance notice) for those with dietary needs. We can work out what’s best for your family after you register. For dietary restrictions and/or questions, see a sample camp menu or contact the camp.
Our desire is to be as distraction free as possible. Cell phones, iPads, and other electronic devices are not permitted.
