WHO IS PASSION CAMP FOR?
Passion Camp is designed for student groups of rising 7th graders 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.
DO WE HAVE TO PAY THE FULL PRICE TO REGISTER?
No. 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 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 7, your hotel rooms will be released. If payment is received after May 7, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide you with the same hotel choice or number of rooms at the original pricing.
IS MY DEPOSIT REFUNDABLE?
No, but it is transferrable to your remaining balance due. If you choose to lower your number of Passion Camp registrations before January 31, any deposit paid will be applied to your outstanding balance. After January 31, 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 10 students. However, we have found that students thrive most and have the best experience at camp with a 1 to 8 ratio.
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?
Yes. 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 May 15. We will be glad to accommodate any requests that are communicated prior to May 15.
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?
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 hotel. Additional rooms may be available and rates will vary by hotel. Please contact the Passion Team for more information.
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 email [email protected] to submit a request for more information.
WHAT ARE SQUADS?
Squads provide a high-energy, fun, and competitive element to Passion Camp! Students are grouped into teams and led in large group activities as they compete throughout the week, and at the end, only one Squad will win!
WHERE SHOULD MY GROUP MEET DURING CHURCH GROUP TIME?
Some groups choose to meet in their hotel rooms or on the beach, and others arrange with the hotel to reserve meeting space.
WHAT DO MY STUDENTS NEED TO BRING?
Students should bring their Bible, a notepad or journal, a pen, beach towels, sunscreen, spending money, and anything else they would normally bring to the beach.
WHAT CAN STUDENTS DO DURING FREE TIME?
Your group can enjoy the beach or the pool at your hotel. There are also various other attractions nearby. To see a complete list of what Daytona Beach has to offer, visit www.daytonabeach.com.Please note that leaders will be responsible for the supervision of their students during all free time.
WHERE CAN I PARK?
Parking at the Ocean Center is included in your registration cost. A Passion Camp parking pass is required and will be provided to you.
DO YOU HAVE ANY PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS AVAILABLE FOR PASSION CAMP?
Yes. A promo video and digital promotional materials will be available on our website soon and will also be provided to you by email once your deposit is received.
