At dinner each night, there will be a unique and fun theme.  Campers and counselors will be encouraged to dress up according to the dinner them, which will also correspond with that evening’s late-night party.  Encourage your group (including leaders) to pack their outfits.

SWIMMING TEST

There is an optional swim test for ALL campers at 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 8. The test is to ensure that all campers avoid wearing a life jacket while swimming.  Anyone can swim, but without passing the test, they must wear a life jacket.  This is the only time the test will take place; please plan accordingly.

 

LODGING INFO.

ASCENT staff will assign dorm locations for each church, separating genders.  Due to the size of most of the dorms plan for all males and all females to be in the same door (up to 20 bunk beds in each door).  Please prepare your group by enforcing a quiet time after 11 pm so as not to disturb other campers.

 

SNACK SHACK

NEW!  Camp W.O.W. offers a snack shack where campers can purchase items like food, drinks, candy, ice cream, t-shirts, and more.  Campers are free to bring cash or pre-purchase a “Cash Card” with a select amount on the card (campers will pick up their pre-purchased card when they arrive).  The card is optional and only needed if the camper doesn’t want to carry cash.
