Frequently Asked Questions
What is Camp Buckhorn? Camp Buckhorn is a small camp inside the grounds of Paris Mountain State Park in Greenville. (Just a short 30 minute drive from church)
When is camp? July 21st – July 23rd. Parents will drop off kids at camp on Tuesday, July 21st at 4:00pm. Parents will pick up children at camp on Thursday, July 23rd at 10am. Please let me know if transportation is an issue, and we can arrange to car-pool some of the children there.
Who can attend? Any child that has completed the 1st – 5th grade can attend.
What are the sleeping arrangements? Camp Buckhorn has cabins. The boy cabins are separated from the girl cabins. There will be 3 campers in a cabin with 1 youth counselor per cabin.
Showers? There is a bath house for the boys and a separate bath house for the girls.
Safety? Camp Buckhorn is very safe. The main gates at Paris Mountain State Park are locked every night at sunset. (Don’t worry, we know the combination in case of an emergency.) Once inside the park, it is about a 5 minute car ride to the gate to Buckhorn (which I will lock every night.) It is a 5 mile drive from the gate of Buckhorn to the campsite.
Swimming? There is the possibility of us swimming. If we decide to do so, we will be swimming at the Paris Mountain State Park swimming area, which is staffed by State Park lifeguards.
Counselors? There will be a member of our church’s youth group staying in each cabin with the kids as their camp counselor.
Cost? As we try to make this as cheap as possible, there is a $125 fee for each camper. This helps us buy food for the campers and rent the facility. A $25 deposit is due by March 29th. The remaining balance is due by July 5th.
