FAQs

Who is invited to Family Camp?

Anyone who calls Calvary home or knows someone who calls Calvary home...really, we just want to spend time together!

What will we do at camp? And why go?

This is really an opportunity to connect with other people in our church family, to have fun, enjoy nature and your own family. It is taking a time out to refocus on family and God. Outside of a Saturday evening worship mini-service around the fire, it will be open free time for you to enjoy.

What are the time and Date Details?

July 23-24 (Saturday and Sunday). We will officially begin at 9:00am on Saturday morning and our last scheduled event will be Sunday morning breakfast at 8:00am. (Families who care to attend services at Calvary should have no challenge doing so!) “Check out” is 11:00am on Sunday.

*You can get a head start at camp on Friday night as well! However, camp is not available at all until after 6:00pm, and you won’t be able to “check in” to your cabins until 7:00pm. But if that suits you and your family, please come Friday. We’ll be there! (We = the Martins.)

Do I have to have a “family” to come?

Definitely not! You are part of our Calvary Family, and that is good enough. (Or even if you are just invited by someone who is in our Calvary family!) There’s really something for all ages and interests at camp.

Is there a bunch of scheduled events?

Nope, just some good old fashioned opportunities to spend time together. There may be a worship opportunity on Saturday night (still working on details on this end), but it would obviously be optional.

Will I meet new people? Or get to know someone better?

Gee, I hope so.

What if I want to go, but cost is a challenge?

Two opportunities are available: #1, Calvary is more than happy to help a family with a financial need. Simply let us know what you can contribute, and we’ll work on finding the rest. (Contact Brian Martin at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..) Second, you can opt in to whichever housing options or food options you want or don’t want based on cost (see next page for details). That means you can bring your own food to save some money, sleep in a tent to save some money, or even stay at home (in your own bed!) and just join us for the day on Saturday where the majority of the fun stuff will occur.

Will baptisms occur during camp this year like last year? The picnic?

No, we will not be having the picnic and baptisms at camp this year. (The plan is to head back to Foster Arend Park for baptisms this summer, like in years past). But we’ll have our own fun!

Who do I contact with Questions, comments, or wise Cracks?
