Special Packing for Babies, 1 and 2 year olds

Please leave a bag or basket for your child that is already stocked with diapers, wipes, creams (if needed) and a LABELED sippy cup. 
Reminder: Our young ones get very worn out at camp making them more vulnerable to illness. Please make sure to use gloves and sanitize hands after diaper changes and before and after handling food and drinks. There will be a bucket set up for any toys that have been in mouths. At the end of each session, we will endeavor to get all these items washed and that all toys and high chairs are disinfected. Your help in this is very much appreciated.
 

Special Packing for Children (3 years – 5th)

Please add the following items to your packing list: – Labeled painting shirt or smock
– Kids in Kindergarden through 5th need a labeled Bible
– Kids younger than preschool need a labeled sippy cup to leave in the classroom.
– Please, no electronics during class time (not even electronic Bibles on phones or iPods).

Special Packing for Youth Campers

1. Please make sure swimsuits are one piece for the ladies and more than a speedo for the gents. Unfortunately, those without the correct swimwear will not be allowed to participate per camp regulations.
 
2. Bring old tennis shoes and an old outfit or two if you plan to participate in paintball or other adventures for the duration of camp.

Here are some ACR Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

– Will there be children’s programs?
Yes! We will have children’s services during adult sessions. Midtown is serving 0-2nd grade. Harvest is providing a “VBS-esque” program for 3rd-5th Grades. Youth will also have services. If you would like to help with children’s programs, please e-mail Michelle Brown or reply to this e-mail. We’ll get you set up to help.
 
– What are sessions like?
>> There will be less singing and more space between attendees
>> Masks will be encouraged and government-mandated distancing will be followed. We do not know what the looks like as it depends on which phase we are in (which we won’t know until closer to the date).
>> Adult sessions will be reduced to 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the evening. Mark Trotter & George Grace have agreed to be our main speakers. There may be an additional hour session in the morning (with missionary updates or ministry updates) that will not have children’s services.
— One hour in the morning (George) with VBS for kids
— One hour with families with kids doing outdoor/indoor biblical activity or task
>> For those without kids, second hour session focused on missionary or ministry updates
— Lunch
— Free time until evening session
— 1 hours session with Mark Trotter
— Optional large group activity that observes social distancing (in the past, s’mores or campfire songs, etc)
 
– Will the cafeterias be open?
Yes! We do not know exactly how they plan to follow government guidelines but UCM promises they will have a plan in place and you will have all three meals provided for you.
 
– What’s the dorm situation?
The only modification that will affect Harvest is that singles will have even more room. You’ll have one whole half of a suite instead of sharing a room.
Families continue to share with their family. Please make sure to highlight if you are bringing any non-family members with you as we will need to figure out the best way to accommodate your needs. UCM guidelines state non-family members cannot stay with you. We will work with you to facilitate creative coverage.
 
– Activities … what can we still do during “off hours”?
As of now, we have access to the bowling alley and the indoor swimming facility. Rec hall and gym are open with balls, nets, ping pong balls, etc. Other activities may be offered but are currently unconfirmed: chalk drawing, trail walking, movies with social distancing in their theater.
>> Unavailable: Rock wall, Warrensburg outdoor pools
