We can't wait!
Below you will find everything you need for Summer camp.
It may seem confusing at first, but don't worry.
Just make your way down the list and you're golden!
Forms and Lists
EVERY participant going to camp needs to have every form signed and turned in by July 1st.
The forms/waivers are digital and will be sent to me when you are finished.
The Participant Form (number 2) is picky and requires a 3 step process:
1. Click the link
2. A page will pop up with three options. Click the far right box that says "Participant Form (All other Locations)"
3. The form requires a 5-digit code at the very beginning.
Type it in to make your life easier :)
To finish up your payment click HERE.
Whether you signed up during the Early Bird special or after, this is the link you will want to use.
If you are unsure how much you owe, please email Pastor Evan :)
During camp, we will be doing manual labor to help a local ministry there.
We will be cleaning up trails and clearing old debris like shrubs, cactuses, and overgrowth.
Please bring gloves and work clothes!
Drop-off and Pick-up
Camp is at Glorieta Conference Center in New Mexico.
We will be taking a bus to and from our camp location.
The drive is roughly 6 hours. WOOHOO!!!
Because of this please meet at Faith's main entrance on July 5th at 7 AM.
We will arrive at 6 PM on July 9th at the main entrance as well.
(PLEASE NOTE! Arrival back to FAITH is subject to change. We will have your teen call/text you if pickup time changes.)
FAITH'S Address: 6250 Wright St. Arvada
Glorieta's Address: 11 NM-50, Glorieta, NM 87535
Contact & Health
Your teens can bring their cell phones to camp but the service will be hit or miss.
If you need to contact your teen for any reason or vice-versa, your calls or texts may not go through.
If it is an absolute emergency your teen might be able to be reached at the Camp's phone but this still isn't a guarantee.
Glorieta Phone Number:
You can also try to call one of the 4 leaders attending camp with your students.
Evan Magelssen: 5152573972
Brad McLean: 3039070099
Amy McLean: 7205458800
Eli Miller: 7209848307
Our cell phones will also be spotty so we apologize for any delay in response.
If your teen has an allergy or takes medication, be sure to list those in the waivers you fill out.
Medication will be turned into the camp nurse upon arrival and your teen will need to see her to take their medication.
The camp offers a wide variety of food to accommodate your teen's diet. Feel free to also bring food and snacks to supplement any needs.
If for some reason your teenager sustains a severe injury we will attempt to get a hold of you so that you can come down if you would like to.
By then we will have consent from you, along with their insurance, to take them to a hospital and will do so if we need to.
Glorieta, StudentLife Camps, and FSM take the rules very seriously.
Camp is a privilege and we want all of your teens to have a safe and fun experience while we are away.
We do want to emphasize that any type of behavior that results in the harming or disrespecting of myself, FSM leaders, other students, or the Camp will not be tolerated.
If your teen displays such behavior we will call you and ask that you come and pick up your teenager.
Please take this into consideration and talk with your teenager before they leave that this is a possibility.
FSM has been placed in team SURGE!!!
That means us along with other youth groups will be competing against team SHOCK.
The best way to win is with SPIRIT!
Surge's color is blue, so I encourage you and your teen to go out to the thrift store or dig in the closet for as much blue as you can find to wear.
Bring facepaint, sunglasses, bandanas, sandals, flags, etc.
As long as it's blue!
It is a true honor and joy that the Lord has called me to be your teen's Youth Pastor. I have been praying that your teen experiences a deep impact from Jesus during these 5 days at camp. Whether we see it or not, Jesus is ALWAYS at work in the hearts of these wonderful young people. Be encouraged by the fact that camp isn't what saves teens, I am not what saves teens, you are not what saves teens, its the wonderful work of the Holy Spirit that penetrates their hearts and molds them into His image.
What a relief! That means it's not all on me, this camp, or you to save our kids from their sin.
All we can do is display Christ in our actions, point them to Him, and give them opportunities to see Jesus for who He really is.
Please join me in prayer as we work our way to Summer Camp. Many of your teens are walking through hardship, struggles, confusion, doubt, grief, loss, fear, and a slew of other sufferings. And those won't go away during camp, but my prayer is that during camp, their gaze would transition from their sorrows to the hope of Jesus.
That they can learn to be like Paul who said:
"Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need." Philippians 4:11-12
My prayer is that your teen will grow and mature in Christ so that no matter what they face, they can have a peace that surpasses all understanding because of what Christ did on the cross.
