NEVER THE SAME CAMP

NTS Camp

IT’S TIME TO START PLANNING!

The NTS Camp trip is scheduled for July 11-17, 2021 at Southern Wesleyan University in Central, South Carolina.

Crosswinds Student Ministry will be traveling to Southern Wesleyan University for  NTS Camp this summer! The trip dates are July 11-17, 2021, including 2 full travel days.  We will be taking a limited number of high school students who are currently in grades 9-12, and who have been actively attending Crosswinds Student Ministry during the 2020-21 academic year.

We know you have questions!  Here’s what we do know:

  • We have a limited number of spots which are filling up quickly.  Spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and once they are sold out registration will be closed.
  • Registration will end on May 30th, or when all spots have been filled, whichever happens first.
  • We will be traveling down in a caravan of 12-passenger vans with 2 adult leaders per vehicle to ensure your student’s safety.
  • If camp is canceled, registration will be fully refunded.  If we need to cancel our trip for any reasons due to COVID, you will receive a refund.
  • We will be offering the memory verse scholarship program and cookie fundraiser again this year to help offset the cost of camp.

COVID GUIDELINES

The following outlines NTS Camp expectations and protocols for COVID-19:

  • In accordance with our university hosts’ guidelines and protocols, participants will be required to wear face coverings while indoors and while outdoors but unable to maintain 6 feet of spacing from one another.
  • Mealtimes will be staggered into two shifts to prevent large groups in dining areas.
  • NTS Academy Courses will not be held to avoid crowding in classrooms.
  • Youth groups will be assigned to sit together during sessions, meals, and in the same area during small groups.
  • All participants will be required to bring the following hygiene items to camp: hand sanitizer, several masks/face coverings, and wipes.

We will be offering a few ways students can earn a portion of their NTS Camp registration costs in the coming months.

PRAY, PRAY, PRAY

We want to ask you to begin to pray about this trip. Pray if this camp is something that you, your student, or perhaps even a friend should be at. Pray that God would give you clarity if you should go or not. Pray that financial means would be met. Pray that God is already preparing your hearts and those of others. Pray that God is guiding and leading the NTS staff as they prepare.
