PRiSM Winter Camps

Snowbound - Save the Date

Below are a few important details regarding the weekend... 

Drop-off: We will be leaving Friday, January 17th, promptly at 4:30pm—so we encourage students to arrive at the church (meet in the Student Center) any time after 4:00pm to get checked-in and get their gear loaded. We are also asking that students will either have eaten by this time, or come with a sack dinner to eat on the way. Students will only have a late night snack upon our arrival to camp Friday evening, and we will not have time to stop for dinner.

Pick-up: We project to be back to the church by 3pm on Sunday, January 19th. We will announce on Facebook when we are about a half-hour out – so we encourage parents to follow that page, if they are looking for updates on travel and arrival times. Students will eat a brunch before we leave, and we’ll have a snack available on the drive home, but they will not have eaten lunch that day.

What will they need to bring?:

***Your student will NOT need linens or a sleeping bag—these are provided by Frontier Ranch.****

> Cold weather clothing (coat, gloves, hat, etc.)

> Costume attire* for our Team Muck War (*this will be revealed soon!)

> Swimsuit and towel – per Frontier Ranch's request, one piece suits only please

> Toiletries

> Bible, pen, notebook

> $$$ for extra snacks and/or gift shop

> 2 signed releases

Speaking of Releases… : Frontier Ranch (SNOWBOUND) requires all participants to fill out a release form in addition to our 2020 PRiSM Release Form. Your student will need BOTH of these on file to take part in this Winter Camp. Our release can be downloaded, printed, signed, and turned in to any PRiSM staff member. Frontier Ranch’s release is to be done online.

Payment: Snowound Winter Camp is $200 per student--$50 of that is due at sign-up as a non-refundable deposit to secure your spot. Remaining balances can be paid online or at drop-off. If paying online, be sure to note your child’s name and SNOWBOUND.

Medication: If your student has medication needs, please be sure to communicate this at drop-off. If at all possible keep medication in their original containers with the original label attached. We will have medication forms available where you can write instructions including dosages and times to include with the medication--or you can download that form here and have it filled out ahead of drop-off.

What if I need to reach my student?: It is PRiSM policy that on events like this, students’ cellphones are collected (to include tablets or other electronics) upon arrival and returned on the trip home. If you need to reach your student during Snowbound weekend, you are welcome to contact one of PRiSM’s staff and we will make sure that you guys are connected. You are also welcome to contact Frontier Ranch in the event of an emergency.
