Lake city youth students/campers are required to adhere to all rules and expectations set in place by Lake City Church, Lake City Youth, Pastor Daniel Chavez, and Ridgecrest Conference Center. These rules are in place to ensure the safety and security of all students, counselors, leaders, and the facilities. Regulations and expectations at LCYTH Camp revolve around creating a safe, positive, and spiritually enriching environment for students. If students/campers can’t adhere to these expectations the parents/guardians will be required to pick their students up. This includes: 

  1. Behavioral Guidelines: Participants are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects Christian values and principles. This includes showing respect for others, refraining from inappropriate language or behavior, and treating fellow campers and team members with kindness, consideration, and respect.

  2. There will be a buddy system policy: students are to travel in groups of three when not accompanied by leaders or the group as a whole. 

  3. Curfew and Lights Out: To ensure adequate rest and safety, LCYTH camp has designated times for lights out and quiet hours (12pm). Campers are expected to adhere to these times and respect the sleep needs of others. 

  4. Attendance and Participation: Students are encouraged to actively participate in all scheduled activities, including worship services, breakout sessions, recreational activities, and group discussions. Attendance at certain events, such as services, breakout sessions, recreational time, the lake day, etc. are mandatory. 

  5. Safety Regulations: LCYTH Camp prioritizes the safety and well-being of all participants. Students are expected to follow safety guidelines during recreational activities, adhere to designated areas, and report any safety concerns to camp counselors promptly. 

  6. Technology and Communication: The use of electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops will be prohibited during service times and breakout sessions. Students are encouraged to disconnect from technology and focus on building relationships and spiritual growth during their time at camp, specifically during recreational time. 

  7. Dress Code Policy: Students are encouraged to adhere to the expectations outlined in the Dress Code policy to reflect the values of Lake City Church and LCYTH. Dress code also ensures that apparel is practical and comfortable for students during recreational time, lake day, and services/breakout sessions.  

  8. Substance Use: Ridgecrest conference center and LCYTH Camp maintain a strict policy against the use of alcohol, tobacco, illegal drugs, vaping, and any other substances that may impair judgment or endanger health.  

  9. Relationship Boundaries: Students are expected to maintain appropriate boundaries in their relationships with peers and team members. Public displays of affection (PDA) are discouraged and subject to guidelines to ensure they align with Christian values and principles, are considerate of other students, and are appropriate for the setting of camp.  

  10. Respect for Facilities and Environment: Campers are expected to respect camp property and facilities, including cabins, dining areas, and outdoor spaces. Littering, vandalism, or any other behavior that damages Ridgecrest Conference Center property is not tolerated. 

  11. Disciplinary Procedures: In the event of rule violations or behavioral issues, LCYTH camp has established disciplinary procedures. These may include warnings, discussions with camp leadership, temporary removal from certain activities, or, in severe cases, expulsion from the camp which means parents or guardians may have to pick up their student. 

 

It’s important for campers to familiarize themselves with the specific regulations and expectations outlined by LCYTH Camp. Additionally, parents or guardians should review camp guidelines with their children prior to attending to ensure understanding and compliance.

What not to bring:
 

  1. Any device that you wouldn’t want to potentially be stolen or damaged 
  2. Vapes 
  3. Alcohol 
  4. Drugs 
  5. Revealing clothing 

As this is a Lake City Church event, and our students will be representing Lake City Church we will be asking students to adhere to this code. While at Lake City Youth Camp we require: 

  1. Modesty: Clothing should generally be modest, avoiding overly revealing or suggestive attire. This often means avoiding clothing that shows midriff, is too tight, too short, or too low-cut. Clothing should cover all private areas.  

  2. Comfortable and practical: Camp activities often involve outdoor and recreational activities, so clothing should be comfortable and suitable for physical activity. This might include shorts, T-shirts, jeans, sneakers, and other casual wear. Games will involve water and students should be prepared for their clothing, shoes, etc. To potentially get dirty. We will be holding a lake day and ask that students come prepared with towels, sunscreen, and appropriate attire, such as swimsuits that have full coverage (covering all private parts). 

  3. Respectful: Clothing should show respect for the camp environment, Lake City Youth, Lake City Church, and the values these organizations represent. Offensive language or imagery on clothing should be avoided. 

  4. Weather considerations: Students need to pack clothing appropriate for different weather conditions, such as rain gear and intense heat. We will be outdoors in the heat for extensive time periods and students need to dress accordingly. 

 

We will play games that include water and hold a lake day. During these times we ask that students still adhere to the requirements listed above.  

  1. Limited or restricted use: Lake City Youth will be restricting the use of cell phones and other electronic devices during certain times or in certain areas of camp. This includes restrictions during worship services and breakout sessions. Students can bring their physical Bibles and journals to use during the sermon as cell phone usage will be prohibited during these times unless of an emergency. We will be enforcing this to encourage social interaction and focus on the camp experience. We also encourage students to limit the usage of their devices during recreational times as Lake City Youth, Lake City Church, and Ridgecrest conference center will not be held liable or responsible for any stolen or damaged items. Cell phones are only being allowed at Lake City Youth Camp to contact parents. 

  2. Social media posting: We encourage students to be mindful of what they are posting on all social media platforms that involve Lake City Youth Camp. We will not tolerate cyberbullying or the posting of inappropriate content that is associated with Lake City Youth Camp.

  3. Respect for others’ privacy: Campers will be asked not to take photos or videos of other campers without their permission, in order to respect their privacy and personal boundaries. 

  4. Emergency contact protocol: While cell phone use may be discouraged for recreational purposes, we will allow campers to have access to their phones for emergency situations or to communicate with parents or guardians. 

  5. Media consumption guidelines: Students are not to stream, watch, or participate in any inappropriate content while at Lake City Youth Camp. This includes explicit content, inappropriate sexual content, etc. We trust the students to bring and keep their phones with them and in doing so we trust that they will not be participating in anything that could break that trust. 

 

We expect that our students adhere to these guidelines with respect. We also expect students to consider the experience of other campers. If this trust is broken disciplinary will be action will be taken, which includes warnings, guardians will be contacted, and student will potentially be sent home. It’s important for students and their parents or guardians to review and understand the camp’s specific policies regarding cell phone and media use before attending Lake City Youth Camp.
