Clash Camp has been canceled

The following was not an easy decision, but we believe it is the best way to care for students, volunteers, and their families.
Clash Camp 2020 at Kulaqua will not happen this year as planned.
The world is a different place than when we planned Clash Camp 2020.
Given the uncertainty families face and the spread of COVID-19, we have canceled our annual summer camp to Kulaqua.
We are hoping to bring a supplemental Clash experience closer to home when it’s safe to gather again but please know that events are subject to change.
If you already paid the registration fee, your refund will be fully processed within 5-7 days. If you have any questions about this, please email clash@gfconline.com.

In the meantime, please stay connected to Grace Family Church at gfconline.com as well as United Student ministry through our social platforms and gfcunited.tv.
We can’t wait to gather again!

A $50 deposit will save your student’s spot, and you can pay the remaining balance with the monthly payment plan that occurs on the first of every month leading up to Clash Camp 2020.

Our heart is for every student to be able to attend Clash Camp, we don’t want cost to be the reason a student can’t attend and we want to help.

donate to sponsor a student for Clash Camp 2020

Our heart is for every student to be able to attend Clash Camp 2020, 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 and full scholarships to students who would not be able to afford their enrollment. Last year over 275 students were able to experience camp because of generous donations.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am graduating this year, can I still attend Clash Camp?
Yes! Students who are graduating high school in May will be able to attend Summer Camp. There is an option to enroll as a graduating senior.
I am entering middle school next year, can I attend Clash Camp?
Yes! Rising 6th graders are able to attend our Middle School Camp.
WHAT IF MY STUDENT HAS SPECIAL NEEDS (INCLUDING SEVERE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS, REQUIRES ONE ON ONE SUPPORT AT SCHOOL OR CHURCH, ETC)?
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. Where we work to make camp an environment that all students can experience and enjoy, Clash Camp is not always able to accommodate students who need one-on-one assistance, have extreme dietary restrictions, and have certain disabilities.
WHEN IS PARENT NIGHT?
We will be having a Mandatory Parent Night on Wednesday, July 15, 2020 at the Van Dyke Campus.
WHAT IS THE MEDICATION POLICY?
If your student will be bringing any medications with them to Clash Camp we REQUIRE our “Medicine Distribution Paper” be turned in with the medicine on the day of departure. All medicine needs to be completely labeled with your student’s name and placed in a gallon Ziploc bag. The “Medicine Distribution Paper” can be printed at home and turned in, picked up at the parent meeting on Wednesday, July 15 or on the day of camp drop off.

Camp-Specific Questions

HOW DO I CONTACT MY STUDENT IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY?
In the case of an emergency, we will be providing all parents with a direct number to contact us at camp as well as a texting service to provide updates in case an emergency does arise. This phone number will be given out as we get closer to departing for Clash Camp.
WHERE AND WHEN IS DROP OFF?
  • Middle School drop off will be happening in the main lobby of the Van Dyke campus, at 6:00 AM on Sunday, July 19. Note: We cannot accommodate late arrivals.
  • High School drop off will be happening in the main lobby of the Van Dyke campus, at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, July 22. Note: We cannot accommodate early arrivals.
WHAT DO I EAT AT CLASH CAMP?
  • Camp Kulaqua features a full dining hall, which offers buffet-style meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Clash Camp Store will also be open during free time and late at night for campers to purchase snacks and drinks.
  • If your student has food allergies, please indicate this on the enrollment form. If your student has extreme food allergies, please email us at clash@gfconline.com so we can work with you directly to make sure we can accommodate your student.
WILL THERE BE SECURITY?
Yes. We will have a security team at Clash Camp to ensure your students’ safety. Additionally, for every 6-9 students, there will be a group counselor. This group counselor has been background checked and interviewed by Grace Family Church staff.
WHAT DO I BRING TO CLASH CAMP?

Your student will need a physical Bible, sunscreen, bug spray, tennis shoes, change of clothes for 4 days, toiletries, towel, swimsuit, rain jacket/poncho, journal and pen, and a sleeping bag. Please LABEL everything with your student’s name. A more comprehensive list will be provided through email following the parent meeting. Students will need spending money for Clash Camp 2020 merchandise and snacks in our camp store. We recommend $25 for the week. All other meals and drinks will be provided as a part of your Clash Camp enrollment. We recommend that you pack all of your student’s items in one wheeled luggage carrier or duffle bag. Whatever they bring, they are responsible for carrying.

WHAT IS THE CLASH CAMP SCHEDULE?
Clash Camp schedule information will be released in July.

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 skateboards, fireworks, iPods, iPads, laptops, gaming consoles, pets & animals at home. Clash Camp is for building a better relationship with God, family, and friends.

What is the Clash Camp "No Phone Zone" policy?

There will be very specific times where cell phone use will be prohibited. These include services, small groups, and breakouts. If a student is caught using their phone during these times, it will be taken for the remainder of camp. We’d actually advise that your student doesn’t bring their phone at all. Over the years, we’ve found that taking students out of their regular routine opens them up to hear from Jesus in ways they haven’t before. The use of cell phones is the main prohibitor of a great camp experience. Before we leave for camp, we will give you three points of contact for emergencies. All of our leaders will have cell phones so your student will have access to a phone if they need to reach you. When enrolling your student, both the parent and student will sign an agreement to abide by the Clash Camp phone policy.

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.

Financial Questions

Can I put down a deposit?
Yes! A $50 deposit is required to save your student’s spot. The remaining balance can be paid through our monthly payment plan. The payment plan occurs on the first of every month leading up to Clash Camp 2020.
What if I can’t afford Clash Camp?
One reason that we open Clash Camp enrollment early is so that you have the opportunity to space the payments out, leading up to 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.
