Horizon Travel Info and Packing List

Hey Everyone – We’re so excited you’ll be going to Horizon. It’s going to be amazing. On this page you’ll find everything you need to know about where to meet for camp and what to bring. Please make sure you read everything well.

Travel Info:

We’ll meet at church at 8:30am on Sunday, June 23. When you arrive to church, please put your big luggage (suitcase, etc.) in the trailer.  Please put your own stuff in the trailer instead of putting it on the sidewalk and assuming someone else will load it for you.  If you want a pillow, backpack, blanket, etc, in the bus, you can keep it with you. 

 

This beginning of this trip will look a little different because Monty and the interns will already be at camp.  Thad Adams will be driving the bus to camp.  We need some parents who can also go as chaperones on the trip.  They will go to/from Oklahoma City on the same day...unless they want to make other plans to spend the night on the road.

After your luggage is loaded, you can come inside the building, turn your medication in to the medication box, and if you have a phone and are not leaving it at home - you can put your phone in the phone box. 

We ask that you not bring any phones, tablets, gaming devices, earbuds, etc., on the bus or to camp.  You are welcome (and very encouraged) to bring cards or games for the bus ride.  Also, if you would like to bring a DVD or two to play on the bus TV's, you're welcome to do so.  As always, the movies need to be very clean.  ZERO profanity and none of the other bad stuff that sometimes can be found in movies. 

Hopefully the check-in process will be quick, and we’ll be on the road as soon as possible.

Food while traveling:

There will be a lunch stop on the way to camp.  You will need money for this stop.  It will probably be a McDonald's type place.  If you want a drink or snack at some of the gas-station stops, bring a few dollars for that as well.  On the way home next Friday, your food will be provided. 

Okay, so here's the part we need all students to know: if you bring a snack on the bus, all trash from that snack needs to go in the trash can. (not the luggage racks, no the floor under your seat, not your neighbors backpack, etc.)   And one more important thing which sometimes seems to be a foreign concept: no throwing of snacks at anyone on the bus...even if you're throwing gummy bears and your friend is trying to catch them in their mouth.  We're only saying this because there was a lot of trash left on the bus on our last MS trip, Soul Link.  We have a really nice bus, and even though some past students sometimes forget where the trash can is, we will allow snacks on the bus for this trip.  Just throw away the wrappers or bottles when you're done and keep the crumbs off of the floor. :)

Key Deposit:

Students will receive a room key while we are at camp, and everyone will need a $20 deposit in order to get their key. This room deposit money should be taken on the bus with us…we may check in to our rooms before we unpack the back of the bus…so put it in your pocket or backpack so that you’ll have it as soon as we get to camp.

Games for the bus:

We already said this - but want to say it again - If you would like to bring cards or any kind of game to play on the bus, you’re welcome to do so.  Actually, this would be a great idea. Card games, travel games, fun games…anything is great.  You can also bring books to read or other fun things to do.

Our return:

We plan to return around 7:00-8:00pm on Friday, June 28. It could be

earlier.  We’ll keep parents updated via email.

Behavior at camp:

All students who are going with our group to Horizon are expected to

be respectful, kind, and courteous to all other students and adults while at

camp. They are expected to participate in all activities.  They are expected

to be alert and involved during classes and worship times. Practical jokes

or insults to other students are not okay. In addition to this, students are

expected to follow the instructions of Monty, Heather, and the interns.  Our

students are generally very well behaved...and we are so thankful…but we

need everyone to be cooperative and respectful. Please talk to your

son/daughter about this before they come to camp.

Prescription Medicine at Horizon:

If your son/daughter needs to take prescription medication at camp, that medicine must be turned in to the nurse. Students are not allowed to have medicine (prescription or over the counter) in their dorm room.  If you have prescription medicine, please click here to open and print this form: Horizon  Medication Check-in Form and bring it with you when you turn in your medicine to us when we depart for camp.  (If you do not have a printer and  can not easily print this form, let us know.  We'll have a blank copy for you on Sunday morning.)   We will collect all medicine on Sunday morning at our church building before we leave.  (If you have a ziplock baggie to place the medication and form in, that would save us from having to do this before we leave.)

Food Allergy Info:

If your son/daughter has a food allergy, and you haven't let us know yet, let
us know as soon
as possible.  Also, click here to fill out a form for the
cafeteria: https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/fe38c6383879441eb9fa3eed1b5fa5ba

 

Phone Info:

Phones are not allowed at Horizon. If you bring a phone to camp, it will need to be checked in when we depart, and you can get it back when we return to our church.

There is a no-tolerance policy on phones at camp. This is not a place to say, “I’ll just keep it in my bag or in my pocket.” Because of problems in the past with students texting late at night, students sending unkind messages to others students while at camp, and students watching movies or videos on their phone at camp, we have decided to not have cell phones as a part of Camp Cornerstone.

If at any time your son/daughter needs to get you…or if you need to get them…Monty or Heather’s phones can be used. We are more than happy for you to do this.  We're not trying to keep students from talking to parents, or keep parents out of the loop about what is happening. We just live in a world where 275 students + phones + social media + being engaged with those around you instead of those who are far away don't always go together well.  You can call or text us anytime if you need to talk to your son/daughter. They can use our phones anytime to call you as well.  Phones at camp somehow always seem to cause a problem. People will text unkind things, (usually in a joking kind of way, but it still hurts feelings) or take someone's phone and call 911, or someone's phone gets broken...so we're trying to eliminate these things.  But we recognize we live in a world where we can always reach our kids by phone...so please call Monty and Heather anytime if you need to check on your student or just ask us how they are doing. 

Things Not to Bring:

Horizon also asks you not to bring water guns, water balloons, knives of any kind, any other weapons, any kind of tobacco or vaping device, any drugs, etc. Practical jokes/pranks are not tolerated at camp. No electronics of any kind- except cameras.  We ask you not to bring bird baths, peanut butter and jelly flavored soda, mustard packets, or flying squirrels. 

 

Camp Mail:

If you would like to send your son/daughter a letter or email while they

are at camp, this is possible.  We will provide a link soon.

Summer T-shirts:

If you do not have our youth group summer t-shirt yet you can get one anytime.  They are $8 each.  You can get one from the game room (ping pong table room) in the Refinery (youth wing.)   They are available now or any other time this week.  Or you can grab one on Sunday morning before we go to camp.  (You'll have to go get it yourself...no one will be making an announcement about that.)   Money can be placed in the Youth Box. (lockbox in the wall in the Youth Cafe near the HS room door) 

How Parents Can Keep Up With Our Trip to/from Camp:

We will let parents know we have arrived at camp on Sunday via email.  We have created a group in CCB called [Horizong Parents} and this will be in the subject line of all emails you receive.  

We will send a few updates throughout the week, and with our anticipated arrival time

on June 28.  Students will not be calling parents with travel updates on the way home, unless you need them to…therefore…please check our updates to know when your son/daughter will be home.

work in our hearts and in our lives!
