  • How can you ensure my student’s safety?
    • We are bringing our own security and medical teams that will be present throughout the entire weekend at NorthBay. We also have access to rapid COVID-19 tests, urgent cares, and hospitals within a short distance.
    • Please note that we cannot hold on to or dispense the prescriptions that your student brings. We ask that they keep the medication with them and take it as prescribed. Medications must be in their original packaging. Please prepare them ahead of time to take their own medications. A trained medical volunteer will be present at all times during Wildfire to assist with general medical needs and emergencies.
    • What COVID-19 precautions might be part of my student’s time at camp?
      • We will pay close attention to any local or state guidelines as we approach camp, and notify you of any changes. At this time masks will be needed only in the wellness center and you will be asked screening questions at check-in.
    • What happens if someone gets sick at camp? Will everyone have to go home?
      • We anticipate that the pre-camp information, precautions, proactive mitigation measures, and operational changes we are implementing while campers are onsite will allow all campers, volunteers, and staff to stay for the entire length of their summer camping event. However, if a camper, volunteer, or staff member presents with COVID-19 symptoms during camp, that person, and all campers and staff in their Group, may be isolated and/or sent home. We will notify you and ask permission to test if symptoms or exposure occurs.
  • What are the sleeping arrangements like and who will oversee my student?
    • Your student will be assigned to a cabin with a leader(s) who is background checked and cleared to serve in LCBC Student Ministry.
  • What kind of activities will my student participate in?
    • Each day students will participate in group games competing in the team color battles. A few weeks prior to camp, you will receive an email with your student’s assigned color. During free time students will have access to all of North Bay’s adventure elements including the giant swing, high ropes course, zipline and the pool. We also provide board games, arts & crafts supplies and daily special activities, like bingo, during free time.
  • What does my student need to bring?

    What to Bring

    • 4 sets of clothes (include an outfit that can get messy/ruined!)
    • Sleeping bag and pillow
    • Toiletries (make sure to include sunscreen!)
    • Towel
    • Bible and pen
    • Spending money for the camp store & snack shop
    • Refillable Water Bottle!
    • Hand sanitizer
    • Masks for 4 days
    • Modest swimwear- we ask everyone to choose swimwear that is comfortable while maintaining modesty during active play (waterslides, zip line etc). Many two-piece suits meet the standard of modesty, but boys speedos and girls bikinis can miss the mark for the highly active nature of our event.
  • Can my student bring their cell phone?
    • We discourage students from bringing their cell phones to Wildfire as it is a great time to “unplug.” However, the final decision lies with the parent/guardian. If you believe that your student is capable of being responsible with their device, they may use it at appropriate times (for example: taking pictures, free time, Bible reading). We believe that it is important for students to learn how to appropriately engage with their devices, and our leaders aim to help guide our students to learn how to do so; however, if cell phones are used inappropriately, they may be confiscated. All confiscated devices will be returned at the end of the weekend.
  • How can I follow along throughout the weekend?
    • You can follow along with us all throughout the weekend via social media.
