|In just one week, we will gather at O’Bannon Woods State Park for Camp Freedom! Our team can’t wait to welcome and meet everyone! Throughout this week, we will be sending you a few e-mails in preparation for Camp Freedom. Below is the first batch of information. We are praying for all participants and can’t wait to see what God will do at camp this year!|
We ask that campers arrive at O’Bannon Woods State Park between on 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12th. Lunch will be served after check-in. Camp Freedom is located at the Group Camp of O’Bannon Woods State Park. The park will charge $7.00 at the entrance gate. Please ask for an admittance tag to keep in your vehicle. We hope to have final word as to whether we will offer transportation from Elizabeth and/or Corydon by this Thursday.
WHAT TO BRING
Click here to check out the packing list. It is very helpful in determining what to bring, but also what to leave at home.
Cell phones are not needed. There is very limited service in the park. If your camper needs to get in touch with you for emergencies, we will have a phone available for them. See below if for if you need to get in touch with your camper.
SMALL GROUP ASSIGNMENTS
Campers will be informed of their small group/tribe assignment upon arrival at camp. We tried our best to place campers with their requested roommates, but this was not guaranteed. Some assignments could not be made due to age differences and capacity of each group.
Shorts must be fingertip length when arms are straight down at sides. Please avoid all form fitting clothes. Tank tops of any kind are not allowed for boys or girls. Shirts that expose the midriff are not permitted. This includes halter-tops and tops with large sleeve openings. Clothing with holes and clothing that reveals underwear, buttocks, breasts, and bra straps are not allowed. Any item of apparel containing or displaying inappropriate pictures, messages, or slogans is prohibited. This dress code will be enforced at camp. We appreciate your cooperation!
