Calibrate FAQ

HOW DO I REGISTER?
This will now be done by a youth pastor/leader from your home church, so students will now register through their youth ministry and not the camp. 


CAN I STILL ATTEND CALIBRATE IF I DO NOT ATTEND A PAOC CHURCH OR HAVE A YOUTH PASTOR?
Of course! Everyone is welcome to attend Calibrate Yth. 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 $TBD and the Late Rate is $TBD plus accommodations. The overall registration fee will differ on the choice of accommodation selected by the youth pastor/leader. 


HOW DO I PAY FOR CALIBRATE?
You will register and pay with your local church/youth 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, sports, late night and more. 


WILL STUDENTS BE ASSIGNED A COACH?
Youth ministries will provide their own youth leaders. By bringing their own leaders we can do a better job ensuring follow-up happens for each student once camp has ended. Having students come with others (leaders and students) from their local churches helps keep the discipleship journey moving past the end of camp. 


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 believe the weekend model creates more opportunities for youth ministry leaders to get time off from work to invest in your students. 


WILL I MEET NEW STUDENTS OUTSIDE OF MY YOUTH GROUP?
Definitely! Some of the activities will happen in youth ministry group (devotions and team building etc.) but other components will be in mixed team along with campers from other churches (sports, activities etc.)

HOW DO I REGISTER MY CHILD?

WHAT IF MY CHILD HAS SPECIAL NEEDS/REQUIRES EXTRA SUPPORT?
