Why Tour?

If you are considering day or overnight camp for 2017, touring a camp this summer is one of the best ways to give you and your child a real feel for the camp’s culture and program.

During camp tours, families can observe children taking part in all the fun activities the camp offers, see the bunks, and get a layout of the camp. Tours also gives parents a chance to ask the camp director questions while in the camp environment. It is essential for parents to make sure they click with the camp director and to ask key questions about the camp. There are many summer camps to choose from and touring can help families narrow down the options while also giving a child the feeling that he or she is part of the process of choosing the camp. The more involved a child feels in the decision making, the more successful the camp experience will be.

If it’s not possible to tour the camp during the summer, many day camps offer tours in the off season and overnight camp directors will do a home visit. Home visits will allow you to get to know the camp director and allow for the director to get to know you and your child.

For what reason am I met all requirements to safeguard Bethel? All things considered, sincerely I'm most certainly not. I have perused numerous Bethel books and tuned in to a significant number of their messages. I'm extremely acquainted with the magnetic development and sooner rather than later I am hoping to wind up an individual from Bethel church. I am not an agent of Bethel - I'm simply somebody sufficiently comfortable with the point that I know deception when I see it and I'm willing to stick my head over the foxhole to do what I see is the correct thing.
