FAQs

Registration

If you and at least two other campers are coming to camp and want to be a group, you can create a group profile for the group. Each camper (including you) would then need to register for camp individually under your group to receive the group pricing and be on the same team.

  1. After registration opens in the fall, click “Register” and then log in to your account or create an account if you don’t already have one.
  2. The system will then walk you through filling out and submitting the registration.
  3. The registration and the registration fee must be submitted at the same time.

Note: If your church group has opted to pay the registration fees, the system will ask for a passcode that the church created instead of asking for credit card information.

Yes. We will refund all but the registration fee through the method it was paid. The registration fee is nonrefundable and nontransferable. No refunds are available if a participant attends any part of a week.

Activities/Facilities

Your camper will stay in a college residence hall room with up to two other campers. If your camper is attending with a group, the group is roomed together. Campers are placed in rooms according to birth gender. To see more, take a look at Lodging.

Campers and sponsors may bring their own rock-climbing gear and their own mask and protective gear for paintball (must be checked by camp staff before use) but may not bring their own paintball guns.

However, because Teen Extreme is not responsible for damage or loss of anything you bring to camp, we don’t recommend bringing your own equipment. Paintball guns, and paintballs, as well as masks and protective gear, will be provided.

There will be an activities booth in the Sports Center where your camper may sign up for extra activities.

General

Absolutely! Just include the names of the campers your camper would like to stay with on the registration form. Campers are placed in rooms according to birth gender.

Camp check-in starts at 12:30 p.m. on Monday and goes until 2:30 p.m. After check-in, campers will get acquainted with a brief orientation video, get settled into the residence hall, be able to visit with friends or meet other campers, and sign up for any extra activities as well as getting familiar with the camp.

We collect and store lost items during and after camp and hold lost items for two weeks after camp. Give us a call if your camper left something behind, and we’ll try to find it for you.

Take a look at the What to Bring section for a list of clothing and other items your camper will need. See more information on camp dress code.

Campers must be between the ages of 12 and 18 and be entering into or have just completed grades 7–12.

It’s up to them! If your camper wants to go to West Campus, play paintball, and try the Escape Room, then at least $37.50 should be brought as each extra activity costs $12.50. All three meals (along with dessert) are provided, but your camper might want extra for snacks, souvenirs, etc.

Teen Extreme takes place on an enclosed campus that is staffed with a security team and sheriff department presence, campers are surrounded by youth leaders, camp staff and cabin leaders throughout the day. For an additional cost (paid at camp), participants can travel off campus with camp leaders to West Campus, PCC’s private property with security access on Perdido Key. Our camp leaders supervise and interact with campers at every game, activity, meal, and service. Campers are surrounded by youth leaders, camp staff and cabin leaders throughout the day. They also stay in the residence halls and are available to meet campers’ needs 24 hours a day during the camp week.

Yes. After campers return to their residence halls at the end of the day, camp leaders check each room to make sure every camper is accounted for.

Camp activities include rock climbing, swimming, team competitions, sailing/kayaking, Escape Room, paintball, and an indoor water park with a surfing simulator and three water slides. Campers can expect to walk from place to place during the day and night while participating in vigorous indoor and outdoor activities and competitions.

An Authorization for Administration of Medication form must be submitted if the parent or legal guardian wants the camp nurse to keep and administer any routine or as-needed prescription or over-the-counter medications, vitamins/supplements, or essential oils brought by the camper.

Campers may bring their own food along with a cooler for items that might require refrigeration. All rooms are equipped with a mini refrigerator. Ice machines are located in each residence hall.

Rooming

We recommend at least one leader stays in the residence halls with the campers. Local hotels are available for sponsors who wish to stay off campus

Campers are separated into residence halls by birth gender, so married couples staying with campers would stay in separate buildings. If desired, married couples may find accommodations off campus to stay together.

General

Sponsors pay the same rate as campers with a group unless qualified for a special group offer.

It’s not required, but we highly recommend at least one sponsor is in the residence halls.

If leaders need to bring their younger children along, local hotels are available for accommodations. Younger children are not permitted to stay in the residence halls with campers or to participate in activities. The children must stay with the leader at all times during camp but are welcome to join campers for services and meals. We do have camps available for younger children: Camp o’ the Pines, Discover Day Camp, and Sports Center Day Camp.

Although sponsors are not required, we highly recommend a parent/guardian or sponsor is easily reached in cases of emergencies. We do recommend that at least one sponsor attend with your group because they help the teens stay on track with activities, games, and services throughout the week. We’ve found that the best sponsor-to-camper ratio is 1:6, and depending on the size of your group, sponsors may be able to attend for free!

Visit the Cost and Offers page for more information.

At least three campers must register under a group account to receive the group pricing.

Rooming

Campers are placed in rooms according to birth gender. Church groups always room together, and campers from different church groups never room together unless requested by both churches.

Campers may request roommates on their camp registration form. A leader from your church group may also request that certain campers room together by submitting a group Rooming Request. Rooming requests must be turned in by 8 a.m. the Tuesday prior to camp.

Typically if more than 3 campers request to room together, we will try to place them in rooms next to each other as availability allows.

Campers are normally roomed by roommate request or by age. Campers who are not in high school are roomed with or near a sponsor.
