What is camp all about?
We will be heading to Glorieta, New Mexico for Student Life Camp this year. Student Life is a camp designed to allow students to disconnect from their normal routines and take a week to connect with Christ. A typical day consists of programed worship and preaching times in the morning and at night, small group discussions, individual Bible reading times, and service projects during the day. The service projects are a 5 hour block of time where we do anything from landscaping and construction to hosting community activities with local children and the elderly.
What are the travel details?
We will be embarking on an 13 hour charter bus ride that will be departing from Bulverde Baptist Church on Monday, July 9 at 11 pm and arriving in New Mexico the following morning. The first scheduled stop that the bus will take place until we stop for breakfast the next day. Food and drinks are allowed on the bus as long as all trash is properly disposed of. We will leave camp around 10:30 am on Saturday, July 14 and will arrive back at Bulverde Baptist Church around 11pm.
How much does it cost?
The cost for the retreat is $390 which includes your camp food, housing, activities, shirts, etc. You will also need money for meals while we are on the road to and from New Mexico. We will have breakfast and lunch on the trip to NM, and we will have lunch and dinner on the way back to Bulverde. We recommend around $40-$60 for this ($10-$15 a meal). If you want anything outside of this including extra snacks and camp souvenirs, then please plan accordingly.
Do you allow cell phones or electronics?
Student Life Camp is a great opportunity to unplug for a week and focus solely on connecting with Christ. We also want to promote the building of relationships with other students in our Student Ministry. One of the ways that we try to promote this experience is by not allowing cell phones or any other electronics to be brought. We also do not allow non-Christian reading materials. We will have pre-approved movies that will play on the bus ride to and from NM to help with the long trip.
What do I do with my medication?
Please inform us of your medical needs and turn in all medication to us prior to our departure to NM. All medication will be kept secure by the leaders, and we will help remind you to take your medication at the appropriate times.
Who can I contact about further questions?
Please feel free to contact Garrett Ashley with any other questions or concerns. We want you to be fully informed, feel safe, and be excited about going to camp.
