Top 10 Things you need to Know about Camp:

  1. Campers are encouraged to attend as many age applicable weeks as they wish.
  2. The Cost for your week of camp includes the camp program, 14 hot meals, lodging, 8×10 picture, & camp T-shirt. Extra money is needed to pay for canteen debit accounts (cash will not be accepted at canteen) during Sunday Registration and for daily missions offering or camp store purchases.
  3. **Early Bird Discounts: Pre-register between Feb. 1st – April 19th, Pay $40 deposit, Save $40 off parent balance!   Save $20 between April 20-May 31st.  Full Rate starts June 1st.
  4. Pre-register/Early Bird Express Line: Campers who register by April 19th, our early deadline, help us plan and we want to reward you for signing up early. Campers who register by April 19th  will be rewarded by saving the most money,  being first in line on Sunday, receiving 1st choice of bunks, and be guaranteed the correct T-shirt size. Our max campers per week is 125, to allow beds for faculty, so register early!
  5. Sunday Registration runs from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m for overnight camps (Day Camps on Saturdays 9:30 – 10:00 am check in and camp runs from 10:00 am to 4:00 p.m.). Sunday Pre-registered campers will be registered first starting with our Early Birds, then April 20-May 31st campers, and then late registrations June 1st and after. Dorms will not open before 4:00 and you must register before our staff can allow you into the dorms.
  6. Walk-On’s: Starting at 4:30 p.m. we will accept walk-on’s as there is space available. We cannot guarantee or save bunks until our pre-registered campers are registered. If camp is sold out, spaces will only be available is pre-registered campers don’t show by 5:00 p.m.
  7. Pickup times: for 5 night camps will be Friday at 12:00 p.m.    First Chance Camp Tues day 7:00 p.m.,   and for Day Camps 4:00 p.m.  Speciality camps check your email or ask the office.
  8. Mail: You may send mail to your camper, but please no phone calls or emails. Please send mail early in your child’s week to guarantee delivery before they leave.
  9. Visitor Policy: HMCA encourages visitors to be the exception rather than the rule during camp. They cause major distractions to campers and most times cause more harm than good. If you must visit, for the safety of all our campers, please follow the camp visitor policy and sign in at the office. Our gate locks at 11:00 pm at night for the safety of our guests and facilities.
  10. Volunteers: If you would like to help during summer camp as a counselor, teacher, or kitchen volunteer, you MUST contact the camp before your week of camp to check on availability and need at least 4 weeks before their week of camp. All volunteersworking with children will be required to allow a background check and fill out an online faculty volunteer application @ least 4 weeks before camp begins.
