About Boys Camp

This traditional overnight camp experience is built on a foundation of the Gospel, outdoor recreation, and a tradition of over 70 years. Boys will strengthen friendships, learn new skills, and be challenged to walk closer with the Lord. 

A week at Truett has made a profound, eternal difference in the lives of hundreds, experience it for yourself! 

 

Truett Nation

Become part of something greater.

DISCOVER COMMUNITY

Cabins are divided by age and intentionally spend most of their time together to foster belonging and friendship. 

ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE

Having a week dedicated to boys allows us to create an environment that encourages them to become men of faith, integrity, and strength.  

COMMITMENT TO QUALITY

Truett is passionate about providing a phenomenal experience in every aspect of camp. We ascribe to a philosophy of organization, preparation, cleanliness, and safety. Our staff are carefully chosen to embody the qualities of Christ and receive great training.

Location

Truett is conveniently located outside Hayesville, NC, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. The camp is a 90-acre beautiful slice of God’s Creation. Being in Western North Carolina puts us within a two-hour drive of several large cities (Atlanta, Asheville, Chattanooga, Greenville, and Knoxville).

The first part of being prepared is being informed! 

Here are some answers to our most commonly asked questions.  

When is check-in and pick-up?

Check-in is Monday from 1:00-3:00 PM. Pick-up is Friday from 10:30-11:30 AM. Both processes are drive-through for safety and convenience. There will be more details emailed the week before camp starts.

Who will be the counselors?

The counselors are interviewed, background checked, and undergo a two-week training by Truett staff. Counselors are selected based on their maturity, ability to interact with youth, character, and compatibility with Baptist beliefs. The training is designed to allow them to maximize their potential. 

My child has never been to camp before. What can I do to help them prepare?

Camp is a great experience for first-time campers. We keep the child active and having fun. There is always something to look forward to next. We encourage all kids to try new activities. Like most camps, we do not allow parents to visit during the week. This can be a disruptive distraction and bring out feelings of homesickness. This article by Focus on the Family is a great resource as well: https://www.focusonthefamily.ca/content/preparing-your-child-for-summer-camp

My child wants to stay in the same cabin as another camper. Are cabin mate requests allowed?

Yes, they are! When you register you will be allowed to request up to 2 cabin mates. Those 2 friends should also request your child. No age gaps of greater than 2 years will be honored for the safety and enjoyment of all campers.

What steps are taken to ensure my child's safety?

All staff and volunteers undergo a background check. During staff training, counselors are trained in basic first aid and situational awareness to prevent incidents. The camp has volunteer medical professionals who manage medication and camper wellness.  Staff are trained to facilitate recreation. Any water activities are supervised by American Red Cross certified lifeguards. Also, the camp is inspected on an annual basis. Since 2020 Truett has received a 100 health and safety rating from the NC Department of Health & Safety.

What should my child bring to camp?

Campers should bring their own bedding (twin-sized bunks), toiletries, clothes, and Bible.

If they have any medication, whether over the counter or prescription, they must turn those in at check-in in a 1-gallon Ziploc bag with the camper’s name clearly labeled.

Camps should turn in snack shack money at check-in. Our staff will track their spending while keeping their money secure. Any change will be returned at the end of the week unless the camper chooses to donate it to our Truett Scholarship Fund. 

Can my child be successful at camp if they have a developmental disability?

We love ministering to as many campers as possible. We aim to provide a quality, safe, and enjoyable experience. If you are uncertain if your child can or should attend, due to a developmental disability, please contact our Summer Camp Coordinator by calling our office (828-389-8828).
