Youth Camp Information

2021 Catalog

 

This is a pandemic-impacted summer. All aspects of camp from activities to meals to where campers sleep will be affected. We are striving to have the best possible balance of fun and safety! 

Summer Youth Camps are being planned with the information we currently have. There are things that we do not know as of today. The plans we do have may change as governmental guidelines and information are updated. Camp Mennoscah will revisit the decision to have retreats and summer youth camps if a situation arises that is deemed unsafe or government agencies restrict certain activities or group gatherings.

Camper numbers will be very limited! Sign up for the waitlist! As guidance changes or as creative solutions are found, we hope to add more spaces. Open spaces will be filled on a first-come basis.

  • Masks will be worn by all campers and staff in most/many activities. Social distancing is                 also expected.
  • Campers may do activities in pods or cohorts to minimize the chance of infection.
  • Campers will stay in large tents to maximize ventilation and more space for most camp weeks. In tents, campers will sleep on bunks or cots. A plastic tub will be available for personal items. If cabins are used, they will be at 50% capacity. Activities will be done in cabin group cohorts and/or distanced from other groups.
  • Activities often done inside may move outside, as possible. This will include meals.
  • There may be other changes that are not listed here. We will do our best to keep you informed. Whatever changes there are, we plan on fun!

Please contact Camp Mennoscah with any questions. We will not have all the answers, but we will answer as best we can. 

Register Online

Prepare for hot camp days by drinking lots of water for several days before coming to camp and spending time outside to become accustomed to the heat. Don't forget your water bottle! Water bottles will also be available to purchase at check-in.

Camp Scholarships

Camp scholarship funds are available. Many churches also offer camp scholarships. Please contact Camp Mennoscah at 620-297-3290, office@campmennoscah.org or apply online here. Scholarships are confidential. Church scholarships must be received by Camp Mennoscah before the first day of camp or the camper will be responsible for paying any remaining charges at the time of registration. Checks must be made out to Camp Mennoscah.

Dress Code

During the COVID-19 pandemic, masks are required for most/many activities.  Camp is a place for comfortable, modest clothes. Clothing for both boys and girls is expected to be non-revealing and non-provocative. Swimsuits should be one-piece or a tankini that covers mid-section for girls and no racing trunks for boys. Campers, whose clothes are deemed inappropriate by camp staff, will be asked to either change or wear a colored t-shirt over a swimsuit as a cover-up.

Visitors

Camp Mennoscah welcomes visitors and parents on the first and last days of camp during registration and pick up times. 

Camp Mennoscah Renovation Fund

Camp Mennoscah relies on donations for further camp development such as renovations and future improvements or additions around the camp. This could include new sports equipment, pool accessories, building renovations, landscaping or picnic tables. To contribute to this fund, check the appropriate box during online registration or contact Camp Mennoscah for other options. Thank you for your support in the ongoing ministry of the camp!

Camper Mail

We welcome mail of most kinds, just make sure it has enough postage and time to get here. Lanyards and other bulky items require more than a First-Class stamp. Please do not send food or candy to your camper — any food received will be held by staff until the camper completes check-out at the end of the week. All mail that arrives after the final day of camp will be forwarded or returned to the sender. You can send mail to:

“Camper’s Name” c/o Camp Mennoscah, PO Box 65, Murdock, KS 67111

If you wish to send an email message to your camper, please send an email to office@campmennoscah.org with the camper’s name as the subject line. The message will be printed and given to the camper with all other mail.
