HOW DO I REGISTER MY CHILD?
This will now be done by a children’s pastor/leader from your home church, so children will now register through their children’s ministry and not the camp.
CAN MY CHILD STILL ATTEND ENCOUNTER IF WE DO NOT ATTEND A PAOC CHURCH OR HAVE A CHILDREN’S PASTOR?
Of course! Everyone is welcome to attend Encounter Kids Weekend. If you find yourself in this situation, please contact us and we will be happy to direct you to the closest local church or one you have a relationship with and register with that group.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ATTEND?
Early Rate is $165 and the Late Rate is $180 plus accommodations. The overall registration fee will differ on the choice of accommodation selected by the children’s pastor/leader.
HOW DO I PAY FOR KIDS CAMP?
You will register and pay with your local church/children’s ministries.
WHAT DOES THE SCHEDULE LOOK LIKE?
The length of camp has been shortened but you will still experience many of the same awesome activities. You will participate in encounters, group devotions, games, crafts, camp fires and more.
WHY IS THE SCHEDULE SHORTER?
Due to the impact of Covid-19 we believe a weekend model is more attainable during this season of uncertainty. We also below the weekend model creates more opportunities for children’s ministry leaders to get time off from work to invest in your students.
WILL MY CHILD MEET NEW STUDENTS OUTSIDE OF THEIR CHILDREN'S MINISTRY?
Definitely! Some of the activities will happen in children’s ministry group (devotions and team building etc.) but other components will be in mixed team along with campers from other churches (sports, activities etc.)
WHAT IF MY CHILD HAS SPECIAL NEEDS/REQUIRES EXTRA SUPPORT?
One of the benefits of having children sign up with their children’s ministries is that the church is responsible for bringing their own leaders. This means that you can work with your Children’s Pastor/Leader to ensure there is proper care for your child.
