What are True Life Summer Camps?

Attending True Life Summer Camps can be an incredibly rewarding experience for youth. True Life Summer Camps allow youth to build lasting relationships with like-minded peers who share their faith and values. This can be especially important for young people who may feel isolated or disconnected from their peers in their day-to-day lives. Additionally, True Life Summer Camps offer a chance to deepen one’s spiritual practice and strengthen their relationship with God. Through prayer, Bible study, and worship services, youth can understand their faith better and develop a sense of purpose and direction for their lives. True Life Summer Camps are also a chance to unplug from distractions and reconnect with nature in a beautiful outdoor setting at Silver Lake Camp.

Cell Phone Policy

We believe cell phones can be both a distraction and a tool. Students can bring phones if they choose and if their parents allow them. True Life, BCA, and Silver Lake Bible Camp are not responsible for lost or damaged cell phones. Students can use cell phones for photos and share what’s happening at Summer Camp on social media, but ONLY during Activity time. If cell phones become a DISTRACTION from what is happening at camp, leaders will confiscate them until camp is over. We hope that cell phones will be used positively.

Medication Policy

Medication is not to be kept in possession of students or leaders for the primary reason of student safety. Students will turn in all medicine to our camp nurse at check-in. Please bring medication and special instructions in a Ziploc bag labeled with your student’s name. Medication includes but is not limited to prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins/supplements, ibuprofen, allergy medication, etc.
