we have separated questions into the following categories:
general, registration & payments, first day of camp, check-out & pick-up, parents, and youth pastors/leaders


GENERAL

Who can attend Victory Mountain Youth Camp?
Any student that has completed 6th through 12th grade can attend Camp.

Does my child have to attend a Wesleyan church to attend Camp?
No. Youth Camp is open to any student who wants to come and enjoy a Christ-centered camping experience and have lots of fun! If you register as a Parent, a box will appear that asks you whether you are attending with a Wesleyan church. Just select that you are not and continue completing the form.  

What is the schedule for Camp?

What should students plan to bring? Is there a packing list?

My child/student takes daily medication. Is there a policy for this at Camp?

All medications brought to Camp must be turned in to the nurse at the time of Registration on the day of camp. We have strict guidelines regarding the safety and administration of medicine to your child/student as well as the protection of consumption by another camper.

Can rising 9th graders attend High School Camp?
Which Camp students are allowed to attend is based on the grade that they have just completed. For example, if they are completing 8th grade this year, they will go to Middle School Camp. However, students who have just completed 8th grade may attend High School Camp ONLY IF they register for Middle School Camp as well. If you have further questions about this, or there is a date conflict with your rising 9th grader coming to Middle School Camp, please contact us by filling out the Contact Form here

Do students need to bring extra money?
Snack cards are available for purchase in $5 increments. These may be purchased at Registration on the day of camp. Aside from this, from time to time, we may have guests that sell t-shirts or souvenirs that students sometimes will want to bring a little extra money for. If you wish to send money with them, please remember that they will be responsible for keeping up with their own money.

Are cell phones/iPads/computers allowed at Camp?
While we do allow electronics at Camp, we would encourage students to go without these if possible. Multiple electronics can lead to distraction throughout the week. In addition, there are risks involved with electronics including water damage, loss or the potential of theft. If making calls/texts becomes a significant distraction to the campers' purpose for being at Camp, the cabin counselor will notify the Camp Director and a parent may be called. *Counselors are NOT responsible for keeping up with electronic equipment or keeping phones/tablets secure.

What safety precautions are taken at the pool/lake?
There will be a certified lifeguard on duty at the pool during scheduled swim times. In addition, we will have a lifeguard on duty at the lake during scheduled activity times. All campers must wear a lifejacket provided by Victory Mountain Camp while they are on the pier and/or while they are on the lake in a boat, kayak or canoe.

Will guys and girls swim together? One-pieces or two-pieces for girls?
Guys and girls will have separate assigned swimming times at the pool. Because of the separation, girls are allowed to wear appropriate two-piece bathing suits. Guys and girls must be properly covered up while going to and leaving the pool.

Who are the Camp volunteers/staff?
All Camp volunteers/staff are carefully selected through an application process. A Pastoral Reference is required as part of the application process, as well as a complete background check. Most volunteers/staff have served at the Camp for many years, and the majority are Youth Pastors/Leaders at their churches.

Who should I contact in case of an emergency?
Brian Charles (Youth Camp Director) - 336-471-4444
Dennis LaRue (Victory Mountain Camp Manager) - 919-302-1138
Camp Office - 336-861-3131

REGISTRATION & PAYMENTS

How do I register my child/student for Camp?
Click on "Register" in the menu at the top of this page. Once on our Registration page, click on "Register Now." From there, you will select whether you are a Youth Pastor/Leader or Parent registering your child/student. After clicking one of these two options, you will be able to complete the rest of the registration form. *It is extremely important that you select the correct option (Youth Pastor/Leader or Parent) when registering.

How do I pay my deposit?
During the online registration process, you will be prompted to pay a deposit using our secure payment processor. *Students attending Camp with a Wesleyan church have the option to indicate that their church will be sending a group check on their behalf.  

What if my church is paying part or all of the registration cost?
Please check with your Youth Pastor/Leader at your church to verify that they are paying for part or all of your registration. When registering, you will be able to select that your church is sending a group check on the payment page.  

What forms of payment do you accept?
Payments can be made via debit/credit card (all major cards accepted; processing fees apply), or by group church check (for students attending with a Wesleyan church).
For those churches who will be paying by group church check, make them payable to NC East Wesleyan Youth and include the names of those students who will be covered by the check and how much should be credited to the balance for each student. Group church checks should be mailed to the following address:
Deborah Rhodes (Youth Camp 2017)
c/o Kernersville Wesleyan Church
930 N. Main St.
Kernersville, NC 27284


Can I pay in full for Youth Camp when I register?
Absolutely! Just select the "Pay in Full" option via debit/credit card (processing fees apply) when you register to go ahead and pay for Camp as you register online.

Can I make an additional payment for someone already registered?
Yes. You will need to have the first name, last name, and address used on the student's initial submitted registration. Click here to make an additional payment for someone already registered.

Can I pay my balance the day of Camp?
Yes. However, we encourage everyone coming with a Wesleyan church to go ahead and take care of their balance with their Youth Pastor/Leader before coming to Camp. This will speed up the registration process for you and others that need to register.
*Debit/credit cards (processing fees apply), checks and cash will all be accepted for balance payments on the day of Camp.

Is there still a paper form that I can fill out?
All registrations must be completed online. This allows us to gather necessary camper information more efficiently and securely. However, we have made paper registration forms available for use only in churches in a case where Youth Pastors/Leaders may need to collect information from their students manually before registering them online. Paper forms will be made available from our Media page soon.

FIRST Day of camp

What time do I need to arrive on registration day and where do I go?
Registration starts at 4pm. Upon your arrival, you will be met at the gate by one of our leaders who will pray for you and give you directions to the Lodge. There is no need to arrive extra early. Cabins are already pre-assigned.

What should I bring to registration?
Please bring any unpaid balance due (unless you are registered with a Wesleyan church, in which case you will need to take care of your balance with the Youth Pastor/Leader). All medications must also be turned into the nurse. You can also bring money to purchase snack cards in $5 increments at Registration.

How do I get my student/child's luggage to their cabin?
Leave your luggage in your vehicle and proceed to the Lodge to Register. After checking in at Registration, you will take all of your luggage to the assigned area outside of the Lodge according to your cabin assignment. Your luggage will be delivered directly to your cabin. You are welcome to carry any items directly to the cabin yourself. However, no vehicles are allowed in the cabin areas. Take this time to enjoy the casual walk to the cabin.

Why can't I just drive my vehicle into the cabin area to unload my luggage?
Due to the limited space and narrow roads leading into the cabin areas, vehicles can become quickly backed up and trapped leading to congestion and delays.

check-out and pick-up

What if my child/student has to leave Camp during the week for a sports game, family function, doctor's appointment, etc.?
Please notify our Director of Registration, Phil Surrett, when you check in on the day of camp if your child/student will need to leave during the week. At the time they are leaving, they must let their cabin counselor know and must be signed out in the camp office downstairs in the Lodge. This is required each time they leave AND return to Camp. DO NOT leave Camp with a child/student without notifying their cabin counselor, no exceptions.

What if my child/student gets sick/homesick during the week?
We have a registered nurse on staff at the Camp 24 hours a day. If a child/student is sick or significantly injured, you will be notified immediately. Any injuries will be assessed by the nurse and additional medical care will be given if necessary. In addition, we will do our very best to comfort any camper who is showing signs of being homesick. In most cases, getting the child/student involved with other campers and activities allows them to start enjoying their time at the Camp. If, however, the they are not consolable, we will notify the parent/guardian about the best course of action.

What time does Camp end on Friday?
Camp ends at 1pm on Friday afternoon. Students/children can be picked up at the Lodge and must be signed out with their cabin counselor before they will be released.

PARENTS

Can I come and visit my child during the week?
On Wednesday night, we invite you to come and visit during our evening rally that begins at 7:30pm. We highly encourage those parents whose children may be unable to emotionally handle their visit to seriously consider not coming if there is a risk that your child may want to leave Camp. Although this may be difficult, we want your child to enjoy the full Camp experience. However, the decision to visit is completely up to you. Should a situation arise where your child should decide to leave Camp with you, the child/student's counselor or the Camp Director must be notified.

Can my child sit with me during the evening rally?
For the safety of your child and the need for our counselors to know where students are at all times, we ask that they remain with their cabin and their cabin counselor during the rally. In addition, we want them to remain focused throughout the night on how God might speak to them at the rally, so it is our desire to eliminate as many potential distractions as possible. There will be a time following our evening programming when you will be able to visit with your child.

YOUTH PASTORS/LEADERS

I'm the Youth Pastor/Leader/Volunteer at my church. Do I still need to fill out a Counselor/CIT Application?
Yes. Everyone who is planning to come to Camp as a Leader must fill out an application and consent to a background check. Click here to fill out your Counselor/CIT Application now!

Will all the students from my church be in the same cabin together?
All attempts will be made to keep groups together. As students are registering, if they are being registered by their parents, please remind them to indicate that they are coming with a Wesleyan church and then correctly indicate which church. This will help as we attempt to keep groups together in the same cabin.

When will I be notified which team my students will be on for team competitions?
We will notify you the week before Camp which team your group will be on - Red, Blue, Green, or Gold.

Are there promotional posters or images I can use to promote Camp?
Promotional posters, images and videos will be available soon.

Since registration is online, how can I know who is registered from my church?
Youth Pastors/Leaders should request a username and password that you can use to log in and see which students have registered from your church. You will also be sent regular balance updates for your group.

Can I just register all of the students from my church as a group?
Our current online registration system does not currently support mass group registration. You can, however, collect their registration information and register them individually yourself if you would like. As you register them, just be sure to indicate that they are attending with your church. 

I am sending a group check from my church. What's the process for doing that?
For those churches who will be paying by group church check, make them payable to NC East Wesleyan Youth and include the names of those students who will be covered by the check and how much should be credited to the balance for each student. Group church checks should be mailed to the following address:
Deborah Rhodes (Youth Camp 2017)
c/o Kernersville Wesleyan Church
930 N. Main St.
Kernersville, NC 27284
