What do the students need to bring?
We ask that all students to bring a small suitcase and a personal bag only. For more details on what to bring see the "Packing List" below in our resources.
Are cell phones/ devices allowed at camp?
Like most camps, we strongly encourage campers to leave cell phones and devices at home but leave the final decision to each church's Youth Leader/ Director. Our goal is not to enforce unnecessary rules but to eliminate distractions so students are able to fully engage and experience all that God has for them while at the same time realizing that students may use their devices for YouVersion, note taking and to take pictures. Regardless, we ask that all students honor their leaders by following the guidelines they set.
What not to bring:
All handheld games are prohibited, as well as drugs, alcohol, firearms, tobacco, knives and fireworks.
How do I contact a camper, how does a camper contact me?
We recommend you get the contact info of your home church's Youth Leader should you need to contact your camper. If your student needs to contact you, any leader at SoCal Camp will have a phone they can use.
Is there a deadline to get a camper registered?
Yes! If students/leaders are not registered by June 1st the price goes up to $290. Be sure to register as soon as possible and reach out to your church in regards to payment.
