Ocoee Ridge Camp in Ocoee, Tennessee (about an eight-hour drive from Raleigh). You can check out their website below for more information.
The cost of camp is different for Middle and High School (high school is an extra day). Middle School cost is $400. High school cost is $425.This covers meals (as we travel and at camp), lodging for all nights, transportation to/from camp (lunch included), activities (including whitewater rafting/tubing), T-shirts, and activity supplies.
Scholarships are available to families who need them . Scholarships are based on criteria such as financial needs, family size, and are limited to the number of scholarship money available. To apply for a scholarship, please speak with the student director at your campus.
We travel in charter buses. Each bus holds 55 people.
We stop to eat lunch both ways and it is provided/included in the costof camp. Students do not need to bring any lunch money.
Our goal is to provide one chaperone for every six 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 $100. We are very grateful for our leaders.
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 seven bunk beds for a total of 14 occupants. Each room will have two leaders and 12 students(to follow our 1:6 ratio), meaning each room will contain two small groups. Each room has its own bathroom for the 14 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 AdventureUnlimited (whitewater rafting, tubing, etc.). Both of these organizations are in compliance with state and federal rules and regulations. Waivers for each are built into your initial registration.
No. Middle school students will be tubing instead of whitewater rafting.It will be an enjoyable experience for them.
We bring two registered nurses with us to camp to assist with all medication and any emergencies.
Lights out vary for Middle School and High School but is anywhere from 10-11:30 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. Please let us know about these specific restrictions by emailing students@summitchurch.com.
Our desire is to be as distraction-free as possible. Cell phones, iPads, and other electronic devices are not permitted.
In the event of emergencies, you will be able to contact your student’s small group leader or our Summit on-call staff member.
Evening messages will be given by members of our student ministry team or Summit Staff. Worship will be led by worship leaders from all Summit campuses.
The theme of Elevate Summer Camp is Draw Near. James 4:8, "Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you."
