General YFC Camp Terms & Policies

LEADER/CAMPER RATIOS
There must have at least a 1:7 leader to camper ratio for high school and a 1:5 ratio for middle school.  You can make the ratio smaller to fit the specific needs of your campers, but DO NOT make the ratio any larger.

MAXIMUM/MINIMUM CAMPER AGE
- Campers attending high school camp must be campers entering 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade AND graduating seniors.
- Campers who are entering 9th grade have the option to attend high school or middle school camp.
- Campers attending middle school camp must be campers entering 7th, 8th or 9th grade.  If you have campers who will be entering 6th grade, you can decide if their maturity level is high enough to attend camp.

MINIMUM LEADER AGE
- ALL leaders who are coming to stay in cabins with campers MUST be at least 18 years of age or older.  If you have volunteers/leaders under 18 who are interested in coming to camp, please direct them toward Project Serve.
- Each leader MUST have a background check on file locally with your chapter of Youth For Christ. If you show up to camp without one, your chapter will be charged to run one at camp, and if it does not come back clear, you will be sent home immediately!
- The only exception to this rule is if you use high school student leaders as "junior leaders" at middle school camp.  You must still provide the correct ratio of adult leaders (over the age 18) to campers (1:5), but you may also add high school students as junior leaders.  So if you have 10 campers in a cabin, you should have 2 adult leaders and then you can also have 1 or 2 high school junior leaders.
