First Chance camp is great for kids just beginning their church camp experience.  This unique weekend getaway is designed to introduce those going into Kindergarten and 1st grades to Christian camping in a comfortable environment. A parent (or guardian) accompanies their child and they discover together that what we read in the Bible is not a bunch of random stories, but one story about God’s love for us!  They will explore the wonder of God’s story through storytelling, games, crafts, devotion time together, and a whole lot of fun!   

First Chance check-in will be from 5-6 P.M. on Friday and the program will begin with dinner at 6 P.M. Camp will end on Saturday at 4 P.M.

PLEASE NOTE:  We have room for parent/child combos (dad/son; dad/daughter; mom/son; mom/daughter), but WE DO NOT HAVE FAMILY STYLE ROOMS FOR THIS SESSION (mom & dad plus camper).  You may still register and come as a family combo, but you will not be housed together.


We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will make changes as necessary.  Until such a time as we feel it is safe to lift all restrictions, we will continue to operate using the policies and procedures we used for 2020. 

Please note that because of the fluid nature of this situation, some or all of these policies may be changed, removed, or added to as circumstances require. We will be in a state of constant evaluation over all of these policies and adjust them as necessary.  Additionally, we reserve the right to reschedule or cancel any sessions that are deemed to be unsafe due to this virus. 

Starting Now/Before Camp

  • Restricting Out of State Campers As of right now, we are limiting registrations to Missouri residents only.  We will be reevaluating this as we draw closer to camp.
  • Obeying Local Governments If the county the camper resides in has not been deemed safe to “open up,” that camper can’t attend– camp WILL refund these cases.
  • Encouraging campers to “shelter in place” the week leading up to their session.
  • Full refunds will ONLY be issued if there is a positive Covid case in the camper's household within 14 days of the camper's session beginning.

At Check In

  • Signed affidavit that camper has not had a fever or interaction with infected person in the last 7 days this will be emailed to you ahead of time for you to bring with. There will also be an online link for you to sign digitally.  Additionally, this form will be available at check in.  Campers who do not complete this affidavit will not be allowed to check in.
  • Temperature check These will be conducted as a camper gets to their dorm or cabin.  We reserve the right to do random temperature checks through the camp session.

During Camp

  • Once campers are on campus, they will not be permitted to leave and come back.
  • We will be implementing extra cleaning during sessions/between sessions.
  • Food Service will not be self-serve.
  • We are being intentional about the games we play to limit the risk of infection.
  • Our medical staff will have authority to send campers home who exhibit any signs of illness.  In the case of a camper being sent home, a pro-rated refund will be offered.
