Summer 2017 - I'm registered...now what?

We’re so glad you’ve registered for camp and we are looking forward to a great summer at Inspiration Point! The information below will help you make plans for this summer. Additional information specific to your week of camp will be sent via email in the weeks leading up to camp starting. If you have questions please email us at office@ipoint.org. We look forward to seeing you this summer!

 

What is the theme?

In this world we face troubles and trials of many kinds. Hardships happen. So many influences steal our attention.  Lies creep into our thinking. We are consumed with doubt, overwhelmed by our inadequacies, and crippled by fears. We have hard questions like “Who am I?”, “Why is there such a mess in the world?” and “What is my purpose in life?”  We’re navigating difficult terrain. Steady footing is difficult to find. 

This summer at Inspiration Point, we will lift our eyes up to the ROCK that is greater than our fears, doubts and inadequacies.  Isaiah 2:3 says, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD. He will teach us His ways so that we may walk in His paths.” We pray that 1st-12th grade campers, staff and family camp guests will answer this invitation to come, and then by God’s grace, we will all grow BOULDER in our faith, ANCHORING to the ROCK of Ages as we find SOLID FOOTING in the Word of God to help us NAVIGATE life's difficult TERRAIN. Join us this summer as we find adventure and hope on the Mountain.

What time should I get to camp?

Registration is open on the first day of your camp from 3-5 PM.  We recommend arriving by 4:30 p.m. so you have time to settle in. .

  

Check-Out/Closing Program:

Parents are encouraged to attend the Closing Program which will be at 10:00 AM on the last day of camp.  All campers must be picked up by 11:00 AM. Campers must be signed out by an approved adult before leaving. You can complete a "Ride Home Permission Form" by logging into your online camper account. Campers without a completed ride home form will be approved to leave with any adult they know.
