Group Expectations

Please allow the youth director/sponsor to fill out this form.

I’m bringing a group to Teen Extreme. What do I need to know?

GROUP REQUIREMENTS

  • Groups must have 6+ campers and 1+ sponsor staying in the residence hall with the campers. Groups that do not meet this requirement by the week before camp will be switched to individual campers and will not qualify for the discounted group cost or offers.
  • Sponsors must help the teens stay on track with activities, games, services, and dress attire.
  • We’ve found the best sponsor-to-camper ratio is 1:6, and depending on the size of your group, your sponsors may be able to attend for free! Visit the Cost and Offers page for more information.

REGISTRATIONS

  • Creating a group profile does not reserve a space for you or your campers. Since camp fills quickly, encourage your campers and sponsors to register soon!
  • Sponsors must be out of high school and no longer qualified to attend camp as a camper.
  • Each participant attending with your group must register and pay the registration fee to reserve their space.
  • To minimize issues for youth directors, parents should complete their campers’ registrations online.

DRESS EXPECTATIONS

All dress expectations apply to campers, parents, and sponsors attending camp. Churches, sponsors, and leaders are expected to enforce dress expectations within their group.

Girls Dress Example

Girls

  • Modest shirts that cover the shoulders (no low, spaghetti-strap, or midriff-showing shirts or shirts with writing or pictures that are contrary to biblical principles)
  • Walking or athletic-style shorts that extend to the top of the kneecap
  • Knee-length skirts, dresses, and shorts are appropriate for evening services.
  • Modest swimsuit that covers the midriff
  • T-shirt to wear over swimsuit (required when surfing on the FlowRider)
  • Clothing should be loose-fitting enough to allow for gathering an inch of fabric on either side of the garment without stretching the material.

Note

No pants, jeans, capri pants, or short shorts. Wind/athletic pants are permitted for ice skating and required to rock climb (facilities provided to change at these activities).

Guys Dress Example

Guys
