What is Winter Camp?

Winter Camp is our annual winter youth retreat that happens each year in the middle of February. It is an amazing opportunity for students (grades 6-12) to get away for a weekend and have a blast together participating in activities, games and building friendships with one another. Most importantly it is an opportunity for our students to take a weekend to focus on their relationship with Jesus. The experiences students have at winter and summer camps are invaluable and deepen their relationships with Jesus in a powerful way. If you are a parent, we hope you will not only commit to sending your student(s) to camp, but will also join us in helping to sponsor students in need by donating to our scholarship fund. If you are a student, we encourage you to do WHATEVER it takes to make sure you can be a part of this amazing weekend. We hope to see you at this year’s Winter Camp!

Medication Policy:
For student safety, medication of any kind is not to be kept in the possession of students or leaders. All medication will be turned in to our camp nurse at check in. Please bring medication and any special instructions in a Ziploc bag labeled with your student’s name. This includes, but is not limited to: prescription medication, over the counter medication, vitamins/supplements, ibuprofen, allergy medication etc.

Cell Phone Policy:
We believe cell phones can be both a distraction and a tool. Students are permitted to bring phones if they choose and if parents allow it. True Life, BCA, and Double K Ranch are not responsible for lost or damaged cell phones. Phones are welcome and invited to be used for photos and to share with friends, families, social media etc. what’s going on at Winter Camp. However, if phones become a DISTRACTION from what is happening at camp, Life Leaders have been instructed to confiscate them until camp is over. It is our hope that cell phones will be utilized in a healthy way.
