  • Campers will be divided into categories: daredevil, medium, limited rides and no rides.

  • Small groups: campers 12 and older may go on their own in smaller groups (minimum of 2).

  • Small groups: check in periodically with the original group (plan check points throughout the day).

  • Small groups: give your cell phone numbers to your counselors.

  • Campers will wear the Midwest Diocese Camp t-shirt the entire day.

  • No camper may leave the group to be on their own.

  • Always use the bathroom with a partner - never use it alone.

  • If you get separated from your group: STOP and look around for the colored t-shirts that campers are wearing--don't walk around and try to find your group; stay where you are because your group will come back and find you.

  • When the group notices that a camper is missing: stop and go back to the last area where you remember seeing that camper.

  • If you are lost and feel uncomfortable -- immediately contact any park worker and tell them you are lost. The park worker will take you to a building and will then contact us. We will know where to find you and come for you.
