Our policy is first come, first serve. When we receive the camper's application and registration fee, we will send a registration confirmation by email.
The camp phone is located in the Office and the TinTop Cafeteria. Due to the outdoor nature of the camp, there is not always someone available in those locations to answer the phone. The Directors check voicemail several times each day and return calls as often as possible.
We attach a packing list with the registration confirmation sent through email. If needed, please email for an additional copy.
Registration is at the ‘Barn’, which is the first building on the left on the campground. Registration usually only takes a few minutes. It includes: a camper lice check (as a preventative measure), payment of balance of camp fee, an opportunity to put money into the camper’s camp store account, pre-order of the CD of weekly pictures, and camper room assignment. The closing ceremony will begin at 11:00 am on Saturday for Sessions 1 through 4. It consists of a brief time of worship, introduction of staff and campers, as well as awards.
We discourage young campers from calling home, simply because it may initiate or worsen homesickness. However, we do allow calls during Breakfast and Lunch times. If a parent leaves a message, we will return his/her message as soon as possible. There will always be a counselor with the camper who is calling home. Sometimes, the Director may call with a camper at a more convenient time than mealtime.
Parents must speak with Director regarding ‘Check Out’ issues. Please let the staff know as soon as possible if a camper needs to leave the campground early. Campers must be signed out through the Director.
We discourage parents from visiting because it tends to initiate homesickness. However, parents are welcome to tour the campgrounds prior to beginning of camp and on the last day before closing ceremony.
From past experience, we’ve learned that visits and phone calls from parents can worsen homesickness. The staff members try to get their thoughts on the fun they’re having instead of missing home. We want campers to remain at camp as long as possible. We work with parents to make the best decision for campers on a case-by-case basis.
We encourage parents to register early and take advantage of a ‘Payment Plan’, which can include small payments in the months leading up to camp. If assistance is still needed, we also encourage parents to raise support for their camper through their church family. However, we never want a finances to stand in the way of a child missing out on King's Camp Summer Camps and we do provide scholarships. Click here to apply for a scholarship.
King’s Camp generally accepts all Friend Requests. However, parents should monitor their campers Facebook activity as a precaution.
We do allow campers to send and receive mail. Campers can give outgoing mail to their counselors. For incoming mail, try to send it early to ensure that campers receive it in time. Our mailing address is:
P.O. Box 335
Mer Rouge, LA 71261
