GET

PREPARED

Gear Up for an Unforgettable Camp Appalachia Experience!

We’re so excited that your child will be joining us for Camp this summer. We want to make sure you and your child have everything you need to have a great experience. Our staff works all year long to prepare for the time your camper spends here. Now that you’ve signed up, here are the steps you can take to make sure you’re prepared.

Food allergies

Please be sure to disclose any food allergies or dietary restrictions on your child’s registration form. We will do our best to provide alternatives. 

Campers are allowed to bring a small amount of snacks, but only if they are stored in an airtight container, such as a Ziploc bag. Drinkables are not allowed, except for bottled water. Due to allergy sensitivities, we ask campers NOT to bring products with peanuts or tree nuts.

Students with Physical Limitations & Special Health Needs

If your child has a disability or special needs, please call us at least 30 days in advance of the camp date for an evaluation of the camper’s care needs. Camp Appalachia counselors are encouraging and patient and can help facilitate successful camp experiences for children with mild and moderate disabilities. Our programs are not designed for campers who need significant assistance or personal care, require constant one-on-one support, or have difficulty managing their behavior in group settings.

Health conditions requiring advance clearance include, but are not limited to: Insulin Dependent Diabetes, Cardiac Situations, Asthma, Seizure Disorders, Autism Spectrum, and Serious Food Allergies.

Pack your bags like a pro

Make sure you pack the right stuff for an exceptional week at Camp. Because learning personal responsibility is an important part of the Camp experience, please talk to your camper about keeping track of personal items. To help recover lost items, put your name on all belongings.

Clothing Guidelines

In striving to provide a safe and appropriate environment for our campers, we ask that you help us in the choices of clothing your child brings to Camp. Campers should have enough clothing to last the duration of their stay. Campers should bring clothing that can get wet, dirty, and muddy without concern. All clothing should be marked with the camper’s name.

Appropriate Clothing

Please ensure all clothes are acceptable for a youth camp. We request that phrases/graphics/logos be in good taste. Camp reserves the right to prohibit the wearing of clothing the Camp Director deems inappropriate.

Swimwear

To help maintain an atmosphere of modesty, we ask that all swim-wear be conservative in nature. For boys, please stick to board short-style swim trunks (no Speedos or Jammers). For girls, one-piece swimsuits or modest “tankinis” are great.  


Bringing Food to Camp

Camp provides healthy meals, so snacks are not needed. Camp will allow campers to bring a small amount of snacks, but only if they are stored in an air-tight container, such as a ziplock bag. Please do not bring a large container of candy or other sweets. Due to increased allergy sensitivities, please refrain from bringing products with peanuts or tree nuts.

 

Camp Appalachia will not provide storage containers nor be held responsible for lost or stolen food items. Counselors will regulate when campers can have their food. Drinkables are not allowed, except for bottled water. Care packages may also be mailed to your camper during their stay.

Swim Checks

All of our campers will visit the pool for a swim check. In addition to gauging a camper’s swimming ability, it allows our counselors to monitor for injuries that may need special attention during the week.

Swimmers unable to swim two widths of the pool, using a good front crawl and a secondary stroke will be automatically enrolled in swim lessons each morning. In addition, these campers will not be able to enroll in deep water swimming or boating clinics.

 

For all other questions & information, please contact our office at 304.757.1122 or email j.davis@campappalachia.org

What 

To Expect

Character, leadership, enrichment 

 

When you enroll your family in the Camp Appalachia experience, you are joining our camp family where we explore character development and social interaction through the natural beauty of Appalachia. 

 

Days are filled with games, activities, and opportunities for personal growth by helping our diverse group of campers achieve mastery in an array of challenges and activities. By the end of the camp experience, campers will be more resilient and have an increased sense of community. 

 

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
