Summer Frequently Asked Questions

Check-in Day

We work hard to make sure the process moves efficiently. The best way to ensure that you quickly move through check-in is by qualifying for Express Check-in.

Most parents who qualify for Express Check-in can be finished in 15-30 minutes after arrival. Standard check-in will add at least 10-15 extra minutes. We allow roughly an hour, so parents have time to enjoy the extras: writing notes, buying care packages, making beds, talking to counselors & staff, etc.

Express Check-In allows you to skip the Registrations & Payment line all together. If you qualify, you will receive your check-in card in the camp driveway when you arrive at camp. Once you have this card, you are free to move through all the check-in steps in the order you choose.

  • Complete all registration steps and pay your balance in full no later than 12:00 pm on the Friday before the start of camp:
    • We must have your family's portion of the payment in full.
    • We must have verification in writing from your church for their portion (see below).
    • All Camp ACC tuition assistance must be approved.
    • All forms must be completed, signed and received by the camp office.
  • For brand new registrations:
    • Complete your online registration forms (or have your written paper registration at the camp office) by 12:00 pm on the Friday before the start of camp.*
    • Comply with all of the payment requirements above.
    • *These are just deadlines to qualify for Express Check-in. As long as we have open beds, we’ll take new registrations all the way up until check-in.

Standard check-in is for those who do not qualify for Express Check-In (see above). When you arrive at camp you will be directed to the Registrations & Payments table to receive your card.


Through online registration you are now able to:

  • Register for camp
  • Submit Volunteer/ Leader forms
  • Make additional payments*
  • Print a statement or confirmation
  • Continue a registration or form in progress
  • Return to view your submitted registrations and forms
  • Fill out additional forms if applicable
  • Register online even if your church is paying all or part of your child's tuition.

*You can return to online registration at any time to make payments, but you also now have the option to schedule installments to pay off your balance over a period of time.

  1. No. It is completely paperless! All of the paperwork is completed online. Also, you will not be receiving hard-copy confirmation or information forms from us via mail. It will be your responsibility to download and print all informational documents at the end of your registration. These are put together in packets - one for each program (TruthQuest, The Core, Wilderness, Summit, & PATHWay). Also, we will email you your official confirmation.
  2. Being paperless saves the camp and the campers money.
  3. You will be digitally signing the Medical and Liability Release Form. This is the exact same form and release statement as our paper registration, but instead of signing your name you will check "I Agree" and this serves as a legally binding signature.
  4. If you need a hard copy, send us an email or give us a call and we'll mail it out to you.
  • We take Visa, Master Card, Discover, and ACH/E-Check.
  • Your payments are processed securely and automatically when you submit your registration.

Your email confirmation will serve as your reminder. If you make any payments towards your balance you will receive a new email confirmation. Any balance unpaid at the beginning of camp will be due upon arrival and will disqualify you for Express Check-in.

You will receive two emails. The first simply tells you that we have received your online registration, but it has not been processed and is not the official confirmation of the registration into camp.

When we receive an online registration there is a short process our office must go through to complete the registration. Once this is finished you will receive the second email, which is the official confirmation of your registration.

If you have a balance due, this will be shown on your Household Account Statement. You will save yourself much time and headache by paying your balance at least one week before the start of the camp - See the following section regarding Express Check-in:
