At Truett Boys camp there is no victory too small to celebrate! Boys will be challenged to try new activities, improve their skills, and learn that our ultimate victory can be found in Jesus Christ.
FIGHT FOR YOUR FAITH
Campers will learn how to defend and fight for their faith no matter what circumstances life will throw their way. They will be equipped for the battles that come long after camp has ended!
Without the pressure of a co-ed setting our male campers can achieve their full potential and learn to be the man God intends them to be in a community rooted in tradition.
Truett’s multitude of recreation options allows boys to challenge their skills, have fun, and discover new ways to enjoy time in God’s Creation.
***Some activities are limited by age.***
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. Change will be returned at the end of the week, unless the camper chooses to donate it towards 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 do have limits on our capabilities though. Our staff are not specifically trained to be caretakers. The steep terrain on the camp property can also be difficult to navigate. If a child is interested in attending camp, who may require special accommodations, please contact us before registration. We encourage parents to have a conversation with the Summer Camp Coordinator to see if the individual can have a positive experience.
