WHO IS PASSION CAMP FOR?
Passion Camp is designed for student groups of rising 7th graders (summer following 6th grade) through graduated seniors. Because group leaders assume full responsibility for their students at all times during the week, we are not able to accommodate individual students at Passion Camp. To register, a group must bring both students and leaders. We require at least one leader for every eight students.
DO WE HAVE TO PAY THE FULL PRICE TO REGISTER?
A deposit of $50 per person is all that’s required to secure spots at Passion Camp. However, deposits are due within 2 weeks of registering and spots are not guaranteed until payment of deposit is received. In addition, your hotel choice and rooms will be held with your deposit; however, they are not secured for your group until your final balance is received. If your final balance is not received by May 12, your hotel rooms will be released. If payment is received after May 12, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide you with the same hotel choice or number of rooms at the original pricing.
Please note that spots dropped after May 12 are not transferable or refundable. Each group is required to pay in full for all dropped spots and hotel rooms following the payment deadline.
IS MY DEPOSIT REFUNDABLE?
No, but it is transferrable to your remaining balance due until January 29. If you choose to lower your number of Passion Camp registrations before January 29, any deposit paid will be applied to your outstanding balance. After January 29, deposits will no longer be transferrable or refundable.
HOW MANY ADULT LEADERS IS MY GROUP REQUIRED TO BRING?
For the safety and well-being of all students, we require a minimum of 1 adult leader for every 8 students.
ARE CHILDREN OF ADULT LEADERS ALLOWED AT PASSION CAMP?
While families are extremely important to us, we are unable to accommodate children at Passion Camp. If you do bring children who are younger than a rising 7th grader, please make arrangements outside of Passion Camp for childcare.
CAN PASSION CAMP ACCOMMODATE FOOD ALLERGIES AND DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?
If your registration option includes meals and you have students with allergies or special dietary needs, please list them in your Passion Camp portal account prior to June 1. We will be glad to accommodate any requests that are communicated prior to June 1.
WHERE WILL MY GROUP STAY?
If your registration option includes lodging, there are multiple hotels for your group to choose from. Please refer to the Hotels page for more information. Lodging is included in your registration price and the cost per person is based on the occupancy of 4 per room. The number of rooms allotted to your group is based on the number of registrations purchased. Discounts are not given to individuals using rollaway beds, cots or air mattresses.
WHAT TYPE OF ROOM WILL I GET?
All rooms at Passion Camp will accommodate four (4) people. Please note that room types (2 Queen beds vs. 1 King bed + pullout couch, etc.) cannot be guaranteed. Hotel requests can be added in the Passion Camp portal but cannot be guaranteed by the hotel, as requests are based on availability at the time of check-in. Requests for adjoining rooms or rollaway beds may incur an additional cost, which varies based on hotels. Please note that some hotels have very strict rules about a four-person maximum in each room.
WILL ADDITIONAL STORAGE BE AVAILABLE FOR OUR GROUP?
Storage space will not be provided by Passion Camp. However, if your group requires storage space, you may consider purchasing an additional hotel room for this purpose. All additional room requests are subject to hotel availability and room rates may vary. Please submit your requests for additional hotel rooms here.
