Parents

If this is your first time sending your child to camp, you are checking out Camp Gideon, or are just passing through, we welcome you! We would love to answer your questions and tell you all about what your child will be doing here at Camp Gideon, so please feel free to give us a call or send us an email!

 

Camp Gideon is here to be a fun, safe place for your child, and as such, we train our staff in all the games and activities so that your child is sure to have a great time. We also certify our counselors in first aid and CPR in case of an emergency. We are also starting a program for volunteer nurses to join us, adding an extra layer of assessment and care. In case of a serious event, we notify you, the parent, and take your child to emergency care or call in emergency care as the situation provides. We do everything we can to make sure your child is safe while they have a great time!

 

Our ultimate priority at Camp Gideon is teaching your child more about Jesus Christ and encouraging a closer or new walk with God. We have chapel every day, verse memorization, and Cabin Connects (devotions) to challenge them spiritually, just like we challenge them physically and mentally with activities.
