Things you should know:

Arrival and Departure: Everyone attending an event at Camp Grace must register with the office staff. Please do so upon arrival. Arrival time for adult retreats will be from 3:00-5:00 PM on Thursdays or Fridays as specified in the camp details. Youth summer camps is from 3:00-5:00 PM on Mondays. Pickup time for youth camps is from 9:00-10:00 AM on Saturdays. Adult retreats will end about 11:00 AM (after a 10 AM brunch) on Saturdays or about 2:00 PM (if the camp includes lunch). Emergency contact information will be made available to those registered for camp.

Late Arrivals: Should your arrival be delayed for some reason, please call the camp registration staff at 760-953-2789 to hold your reservations and to give us an estimate of your arrival time, especially if you will be late for the first meal.

What to Bring: All campers attending summer camps or adult retreats should bring bedding (sleeping bag or twin sheets/blankets) and bath linens. The weather is a bit unpredictable and temperatures can range from the 40’s to the 90’s so layers are recommended. We have had quite a bit of rain this year and so a raincoat or wind breaker may also be helpful. The ground can be wet so plan accordingly regarding shoes and socks. We will do some hiking over uneven ground and so shoes suitable for hiking will be needed for youth and optional for adults. Sandals and flip flops are ok for some parts of the week but not all. For youth camps, the boys will need to walk a short distance to the showers and restrooms from their cabins and the girls have the option of doing so although they will have a restroom in their cabins. Adult campers will be assigned cabins as they register, so sign up early to secure a cabin with a restroom in it. Campers should bring a flashlight, Bible, note pad, pen or pencil, toiletries, and spending money. Please call if you have questions. You might also want to bring sunscreen, bug spray, sunglasses, Chap Stick, hat, and a water bottle. 

As camp serves many different churches and families we ask that any fashion worn come at least to the top of the knee. Anything skintight will not count as covered but can be worn as a base layer. For summer camp evening services, some like to dress a little nicer but fashions should still come to the top of the knee. Camp Grace reserves the right to ask any camper to change his/her outfit if, in the estimation of the staff, the outfit is too immodest, too feminine/masculine, or too suggestive.

Please do not Bring: pets, cigarettes, drugs, fireworks, or clothing with worldly advertising. Youth campers’ phones and medications will be collected and kept secure during the week. The camp staff will be taking photos during the youth camp weeks and we will make these available to the campers as they leave. Please call if you have questions or concerns. 

Special Diets: Because we cannot accommodate various special diets, please bring your own supplementary foods, if needed. A refrigerator, microwave, and toaster are available to store and prepare special diet foods. Please call if you have questions.

Ladies . . . Tank tops, tight shirts, clothing with low necklines in front or back, or styles leaving the midriff bare should not be worn and undergarments should not be visible. Appropriate clothing includes knee-length shorts, and loose-fitting slacks or jeans. 

Gentlemen . . . Tank tops should not be worn. Fashions that come to the top of the knee are appropriate for activity times. Exposed undergarments are not permitted. 

Lost & Found: Lost and found items not requested within 30 days will be disposed of. Requested items will be mailed at your expense.
