donate to sponsor a student for Clash Camp 2021

Our heart is for every student to be able to attend Clash Camp 2021, and we cannot accomplish this without generous givers. Every donation means that more students can experience one of the biggest things we do all year. Not only does the scholarship fund help bridge the gap between what Grace Family Church invests in camp and what parents pay, helping to keep camp affordable for everyone, it also allows us to provide partial scholarships to students who would not be able to afford their enrollment. In 2019, over 275 students were able to experience camp because of generous donations.

If your student has special needs and you are interested in sending them to Clash Camp, please email us at clash@gfconline.com before enrolling your student. We would love to talk to you so we can see if we are able to accommodate your student.

WHAT DO I BRING TO CLASH CAMP?

Rules & Phone Policy

What is the dress code?
Our dress code rule is that if you can’t wear it to school, don’t wear it to Clash Camp. Please also bring comfortable clothes for recreational activities outside and a swimsuit. Ladies – please, only one-piece modest swimsuits or tankinis.
What should I leave at home?
Students are asked to leave phones, iPods, iPads, laptops, gaming consoles, skateboards, fireworks, pets & animals at home. Clash Camp is for building a better relationship with God, family, and friends.
What is the Clash Camp "No Phone" policy?

After much consideration and research we have decided to change our strategy this year at camp from cell phone restricted zones to no longer allowing phones, laptops, tablets, iPads and other electronics at camp. This means Clash Camp 2021 will be a cell phone-free camp for all students.

Our desire to help teens connect deeper with God and others supersedes the need to be connected digitally. We must at times disconnect to connect.

At Clash Camp we clear away the noise, clutter, and chaos from teens’ lives. We strive to create a framework for teens to process the gospel message together and alone. The reality is that our phones bring us closer to people who are far away but distance us from those sitting right next to us.

We strongly believe this will enhance the Clash Camp experience and provide a stronger community and a needed break from the devices that we all rely on so heavily each day.

What are the Clash Camp rules?
At the time of enrollment, parents and students are required to sign a Parent and Student Agreement, which includes all of the rules implemented at Clash Camp.

Yes, we will have a limit of 500 students for each camp. Enroll your student soon!

Camp Kulaqua has limited their building occupancy to 75%, we will be following suit in only allowing a limited number of students into areas like the cafeteria during meal times to allow for more distance between tables of 6, versus 10.

Camp Kulaqua is taking extra precautions to eliminate the spread of germs by following strict cleaning procedures in between groups and in public areas such as the cafeteria, waterpark, gym, and bathrooms.

What if I can’t afford Clash Camp?

If you know you won’t be able to afford Clash Camp, even with a payment plan, you may be eligible for financial aid. Financial aid is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. We never want cost to be the reason a student can’t attend Clash Camp and we want to help.
