basic camp information

Directions to Camp:

We are located near the Webster Lake Dam.

Our address: 1380 10 Road; Stockton, KS 67669

From Highway 24: Turn onto Hwy 258 toward Webster Reservoir (24 miles east of Hill City / 8 miles west of Stockton). Camp is approximately 3 miles down the road (which will go over the dam and curve right).

From Highway 18: 7 miles west of Plainville, turn north on 10 Road out of Zurich. Look for a brown sign that says “Webster Reservoir Wildlife Area.” Camp is about 11 miles down the road, which will curve to the right just before the camp entrance.


Registration:

Registration begins at 4pm in the Lodge. (Park in the lot between the Lodge and Dining Hall.) Please do not bring your campers prior to that time, as there will be no early check-ins. Drivers should allow one hour for the check-in process, and drivers are responsible for the students until the check-in process is completed for all students. Please do not leave your students unattended during the registration period. If your student will arrive later that 5pm on the first day of camp, please contact the registrar prior to the beginning of camp. No fee adjustments can be made for late arrivals.


Early Bird Registration:

Campers registered by midnight on April 15 will receive $20 off their camp fee.

This discount is not available for 1st & 2nd Grade Camp.


Registration, Refund & Payment Policy:

By submitting the registration form you are agreeing to pay for the spot you are registering for. There will be no refunds given for cancellations made after April 30. Cancellations made prior to April 30 will be subject to a $10 administration fee. If for some reason your camper cannot attend, another camper from the same church can take his/her place with no penalty, but no refunds will be given after April 30.

You are responsible for payment whether or not you have actually paid by April 30.
Once you fill out the registration form, you are agreeing to pay for the camper's spot regardless of when we actually receive your payment or when your invoice is mailed out. Again, registrations can be transferred to others (from the same church) but cannot be refunded, cancelled or taken off invoices after April 30.
If you attend a sponsoring church, payments should be arranged with your church. If you are not attending with a sponsoring church, an invoice will be emailed to the email address you provided during registration. All invoices must be paid in full upon receipt unless payment arrangements have been made in advance.

Dress Code:

Modesty is key. No spaghetti straps, tight shirts, bare midriffs, tight or short shorts, saggy pants, exposed undergarments, bikinis, or speedos,


Spending Money:

Our camps are all-inclusive! That means each camper will receive a water bottle, t-shirt, and snacks/drinks. The only extra money a student may choose to bring is to donate to the week's mission group or individual. We encourage campers and staff to donate to our missionaries. We ask that campers turn in money at the beginning of the week  as opposed to keeping it in the cabins all week. Please do not send any additional money.


Climbing Wall & Zip Line:

The Climbing Wall and Zip Line are available for students who have release forms (done during online registration process) and are at least entering 4th grade (for climbing wall) and at least entering 6th grade (for zip line). The Climbing Wall & Zip Line are staffed by certified facilitators and are subject to frequent safety inspections. Campers are never forced to use the climbing wall or zip line - it is an entirely optional recreational choice. Helmets, harnesses, and tennis shoes must be worn at all times.


Visitors:

Visitors to camp must check-in with the Executive Director or Dean upon arrival. Visitors must agree to abide by all camp rules and regulations and can be asked to leave at any time for any reason. A donation of $5 per meal is requested for each visitor. All visitors must leave the campus by 10pm each evening. If your child is prone to homesickness, it is usually best to simply write a letter as opposed to coming out in person.


Early Departures/Mid-Week Activities:

Should your camper need to leave camp early, or leave the campus at any time prior to the official ending of the camp, he or she must be signed out by a parent/guardian with the Dean, Nurse, or Executive Director. If someone other than a parent/guardian will be picking up the student, a signed, written note must be presented at the time of check-in. If a signed note was not presented at check-in, students will not be allowed to leave with a non-parent/guardian unless a parent/guardian can be contacted. There will be no fee adjustments based on early departures.


Check-out:

Campers may be picked up at noon on the final day of camp. Campers must be picked up by the person listed on the registration form or a parent/guardian. A sack lunch will be given to each camper as campers leave. Campers may not leave until the Dean officially dismisses camp, usually after a final prayer time.


Mail:

Campers LOVE to get mail. We are located in a rural area, so allow 2-3 days of extra processing time for us to receive your letters or packages. (You may send items early.) Remember that no food or drinks are allowed in the cabins, so please do not send those types of items. Send your mail to:

Camper Name

Camp Attending

Lakeview Christian Camp

1380 10 Road

Stockton, KS 67669

We will do our best to get your camper his/her mail, but it is not always possible. Be sure to include a return address should we need to send your item back for any reason.


Homesickness:

If a student is homesick, efforts will be made to redirect the student to the fun activities going on at camp. Should a child continue to be homesick, at the Dean or Executive Director's discretion, a phone call may be made to the student's parent/guardian listed on the registration form. Further action will be made based on that conversation.

If you don't hear from us, everything is going great!


Accidents:

We strive to make each camp activity as safe as possible, but accidents sometimes happen. We take the trust that you put in us to care for your child's well being very seriously. Should a serious accident take place, we will contact the parent, guardian, and/or emergency contact listed on the registration form. If your information changes after you register, please update it by contacting the registrar. If you have questions, you can contact the camp at any time.


Insurance:

The camper's personal insurance policy is the primary insurance for any accidents or incidents at camp. The camp insurance will cover most costs, up to policy limits, for things the camper's insurance doesn't cover.


Additional Questions:

If you have additional questions, please contact our Executive Director via email,

or visit the Contact Us Page for more options. If you have registration questions, Contact our Registrar.
