No Wednesday Night Youth- May 31 and June 7

There is no youth group for the next two weeks because of VBS. Normal youth Wednesday nights will resume on June 14!

Summer Book Recommendation

This summer, we are going to be using Jerry Bridge’s book ‘Respectable Sins’ as a helpful lead into what Scripture has to say about often overlooked, and because of that seldom talked about sins. While certain social missteps get pounced on in many church circles, what about sins like anger, pride, and ungodliness? This summer we will be tackling these insidious sins that too often rear their ugly heads, with the hopes of being more informed not only about the human condition but more than that our God who has saved us! We commend this book to you, and may God bless you and your teens as we walk and talk through this series this summer!

WOL Summer Camp- Important Information

If your student is signed up for WOL Summer Camp, please read the information below in preparation for camp from June 17-June 24!

-Camp Check-In is at 10 PM on Saturday night, June 17 in the Sr High Room! We will leave for camp at 11 PM. 

-We will return to HBC on Saturday, June 24 around 2 PM but will keep you updated on our arrival time via the Signal group chat. We are planning on only stopping for one meal, but depending on the camp schedule and when we leave from WOL, we might arrive back at HBC a little later.

-If you have not already, please download the app Signal and make an account using your phone number. We will be using this app to communicate with you about when our group arrives at camp, when we plan to be back at HBC, and other announcements throughout the week. After everyone makes an account, I will begin adding everyone to a group chat.

-The deadline to turn in your WOL Health Form is Thursday, June 8. This form has been resent to you via email but please let me know if you have not received it and need me to resend it.
-The deadline to turn in the HBC Health Form is also Thursday, June 8. This health form was required at the beginning of the year so if you have already filled it out you will not need to fill it out again.
-Your remaining camp balance is due on Monday, June 12. If you earned WOL Scholarship, we will apply that to your account (you will not need to do anything) and all you will have to pay is $25

-WOL Camp checks for head lice before anyone is allowed to enter the camp so we will check each student for head lice before we leave HBC when you arrive at registration. If you have been exposed to lice within the past 30 days, please email and make us aware of this. (We do not want your student to not be accepted into camp).

-Bring snacks and spending money for food on the road (two fast-food meals on the way down to camp) and for extra purchases at camp. 

-Bring an additional $20 cash for meals on the way home. We are planning on just stopping for one meal on the way home. However, depending on the camp schedule and when we leave WOL, we might stop for two meals. Just in case we have to stop for two meals, please bring $20 cash. We will collect this at registration and give it back when it is time to go home. Please bring exactly $20 cash for this so it is easy to collect. 

-During camp, the snack shack and the camp store will be open. Should students want to spend money, they are welcome to bring extra money. We typically recommend $25-$50 for the week. 

-DO NOT forget to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, and ONE small suitcase or duffel bag. HERE is the packing list!

-You MUST bring any medication your student uses with you when you arrive at HBC for registration. Your student is required to turn in any medication they use at the time of registration so that we can give it to WOL when we arrive. This is very important if your student has listed any medications on their WOL health form and needs to take them throughout the week.

-Students are NOT allowed to bring their phones with them to camp. If we need to get in contact with you, leaders will have their phones on them and will reach out to you.

Please let us know if you have any questions about this information!
