DO NOT PACK – Electronics, Video Games, Drugs*, Alcohol, Tobacco, Weapons (including pocket knives), Fireworks, Inappropriate Material. Your student can be sent home from camp at parent’s expense.

Where will my student be staying?

Students will be stay at Vanguard Church’s Colorado Springs Campus and serving at various sites throughout The Springs. They will need to pack a sleeping bag, pillow and its recommended to have a sleeping pad or air mattress.

Any clothing instructions?

Yep! We want you to be comfortable at camp; it will be HOT so pack accordingly. Here are a few guidelines:

GIRLS: No two piece swimsuits, strapless shirts, spaghetti straps or short shorts. Clothing must not be too tight, too low or see through.

GUYS: No speedos or short shorts. Clothing must not be too tight, too low or see through and shirts must be worn at all times.

Does my student need spending money?

Spending money is optional. All the expenses for camp have been covered by your registration, but from time to time Family Groups do stop at Starbucks and Convenient Stores during the week.

Can my student have their cell phone?

They can bring their cell phone if they would like to, but cell phones are collected once we arrive at camp and returned to students at the end of camp. At check-in you’ll be provided a number in case of emergency to get ahold of your student.

Cell phones are a distraction to the camp experience and it keeps students from fully engaging into what Jesus has for them this week. It has been a positive experience for students in years past.

How will my student be transported?

Students are transported by 15-passanger vans driven by trained and church-insured adult leaders. Most of the leaders making this trip have been with our ministry more than five years.

Are there any fundraisers for camp?

Yes! Students can participate and sell tickets to the Murder Mystery Dinner on April 20st at 6:00pm. It is a fantastic event where the attendees work together to figure out who did it. Students can serve as actors, servers or childcare workers. Students raise the most amount of money by selling tickets. They get half of all the tickets they sell. More information at www.MysteryDinner.org. Sign up by email us at hello@vanguardstudents.org.

What do I do if I have more questions?
Please contact the Student Office by emailing hello@vanguardstudents.org with any additional questions, comments or concerns. The Student Staff will get back to you within 24 hours during regular business hours.
