Camp registration will be open from 6:30 – 8:30pm on Friday February 7th. Check-out occurs at 2pm on Sunday, February 9th.
A small meal will be provided during check-in.
If you are riding the Streamside bus, you will need to be at Christ Baptist Church (1509 Church Lane, Philadelphia) no later than 4:15pm. The bus leaves at 4:30 sharp, so please don’t miss out on your epic camp weekend!
There is a $50 bus fee per child, which covers a round-trip from Philly to the Poconos and back.
All camper medication should be given to the bus supervisor who will deliver it to the camp nurse.
A prepared camper is a happy camper! In order to have the best possible experience, consider bringing the following items:
- Toiletries, pillow, sleeping bag / blanket, towel
- Winter clothes, boots, gloves, hat, sneakers (for indoor activities)
- Be prepared for both indoor and outdoor (cold) activities
Winter camp is your opportunity to adventure in the snow and outdoors, so for your safety please do not bring the following items:
- Electronics (iPad, computer, gaming consoles, etc)
- Cell phones
- Weapons, including pocket knives
- Sled (we will provide)
- Anything valuable or sentimental (things get lost at camp more than you think!)
All weather and road updates will be sent out via our Facebook page. If there is an emergency that would cancel our camp weekend, or important weather information for our families, we will post that on our Facebook page immediately. If you don’t see an update, camp is still on!
Safety is our highest concern at Streamside. All our cabin counselors, permanent staff, and temporary staff are required to go through an extensive background check process that includes spiritual fitness. Additionally, we have a camp nurse on staff to ensure that children are physically safe.
Many of our campers bring a small amount of spending money ($10-$15) for the weekend to purchase hot coco or snacks from our vending machine and snack shop.
