Outdoor Adventures. In Your City.

We know not all kids can make it to our 1,400-acre campus in the Texas Hill Country.

But that won't stop us from bringing the excitement and jam-packed adventures EVERY camper should experience right into the heart of your city.

From rock climbing and archery tag to summer fun water activities, we stuff our Camp Eagle trucks and hit the road to bring as many once-in-a-lifetime memories as possible to our city campers.

And when campers aren't burning through excess energy with our Jesus-loving staff, they're exploring God's unchanging word and exploring what it means to be a kid who proudly follows Christ.

In partnership with churches, schools, and organizations in select cities across the nation, we deliver a week-long, fun-filled, Christ-centered, day camp experience specifically designed for kids in 1st - 6th grade.

Kids (and staffers!) look forward to it every summer!

For Leaders

What can church partners expect?

Camp Eagle in the City Registration

Online registration will open December 1.

Staff

At our core, we desire to build relationships with every person we interact with, from campers to parents to church leaders. Our staff is hand-selected based on a character of integrity and deep desire for outdoor adventure, authentic relationships, and Biblical truth.

Summer Staff

Each week we will send a team of enthusiastic, Christ-like college students to facilitate City Camp at your church. We have a rigorous hiring process, in which we interview hundreds of applicants, run background checks on those hired, verify references and require an extensive training process which educates staff on preventing and/or identifying abuse.

Insurance

Camp Eagle will provide a certificate of insurance evidencing Commercial General Liability coverage with limits of $1,000,000 per occurrence/ $2,000,000 aggregate, naming the lessor as an additional insured.

Programming

City Camp will provide all necessary components to program an incredible week of camp on your property. This will include: activity class equipment, staff, Bible studies, games, skits and more. Additionally, each camper will be provided with a link to all the photos and videos captured that week, as well as a certificate from his/her counselor to take home.

Our Commitment

We understand this is a large undertaking, but we commit to being there by your side every step of the way. We will provide a qualified staff member to assist you through the planning, marketing and registration. They will be available by phone and email throughout the entire planning process. We will also plan an on-site visit well before summer to help plan out the usage of space in order to run camp. This on-site visit will include meeting with church leadership to build relationships as well as discuss details and answer questions face-to-face. We commit to providing a Christ-centered environment for your children and students as well as quality programming to encourage each child to grow closer to the Lord. We commit to working to make this a pleasant experience for everyone involved, including church leadership, parents, campers and host home families. We hope you’ll choose to partner with us in this endeavor.

What do we expect from our church partners?

We believe our partnership with the church is crucial for making the greatest impact on lives. With this partnership we have certain expectations of the church, just as we expect you to have certain expectations of us.

Attendance

We contract a week of camp at 120 kids/week, however it will be up to the church to draw interest from the children and get them signed up. We will provide marketing brochures, posters, handouts, etc., to the church, as well as the registration system and registration staff. It will be the responsibility of the church to make sure the minimum number of campers is met. Your Camp Eagle in the City coordinator will be in touch weekly to ask for updates on your attendance numbers. If for some reason you are unable to meet your minimum or if you believe you are going to go over your number of attendees, please communicate this to your Camp Eagle in the City coordinator.

Scholarships

We want every person to be able to experience camp despite any financial hardship or status. We will dedicate 10 scholarships to each week of camp, but in return, we ask the church to raise the funds to scholarship 10 kids as well. This will allow a total of 20 kids to come to camp who would not normally be able to afford it. These scholarships will be given at the church’s discretion, and it will be up to the church to get the scholarship recipients signed up.

Staff

We ask that you assign one contact from your committee to work with your Camp Eagle in the City coordinator. This contact will communicate on a regular basis with the coordinator to ensure all registration is complete, all pre-camp contact has been made, all housing and lunch accommodations for staff have been made, and that there is a follow-up procedure in place for after camp.

Host Homes

Our staff will be staying with host families in groups of three or more per home, divided up by gender. The counselors will be very tired by the end of the day, so having a warm and welcoming home to come to at day’s end will help them rejuvenate for the next day! Our staff will eat dinner with the host families on Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. The counselors will have a staff night on Sunday and Wednesday and on Thursday they will serve the host families in a pool party-type setting! A small breakfast, granola bars, and pop tarts, will also be requested of the families every morning so the counselors can start their day off right! If you have questions regarding the Host-Home program, please feel free to email our Camp Eagle in the City Director, Joanna Christensen.

Insurance

We ask that the church provide Camp Eagle with a certificate of insurance evidencing Commercial General Liability, naming Camp Eagle as an additional insured.

Lunches

We ask that the church provide a meal for our staff for every lunch of the week except Saturday, starting the Sunday before camp starts until the last day of camp, which is Friday. This lunch does not need to be anything over-the-top – sandwiches, pizza, etc., will suffice.

Volunteers & Medical Staff

We ask that the church provide someone each day, Monday-Friday, to act as the day-time camp nurse, accepting medication, taking care of minor injuries, and just being around for any sickness or illnesses that may arise. It doesn’t need to be the same person everyday, but it can be. Camp will provide a person to work alongside this individual to give any instructions necessary about camper details and how camp operates.

Space

We ask that the church provide space for us to set up camp every day of the week. We need a large outdoor area to set-up outdoor activities – this can be a recreational field, a lawn, parking lot or an area with hook-ups to water hoses and electricity so we can run all the activities efficiently and effectively. We also need a large indoor area like a gymnasium, auditorium with removal seating or something with a large space for kids to run around on occasion for rainy days and general curriculum use. We will also need 3-4 small classrooms for break-out rooms. All of these spaces can be broken down every evening for the church’s use; however, if they are not needed, we ask that we be able to keep our programming tools up for the night. The spaces will need to be available starting at 7:00 a.m. every morning and will be taken down by 5:30 p.m. every day, Monday-Friday.

Follow-up

You will have a follow-up plan in place as a way of giving campers and their families the opportunity to connect back to your church or a nearby church if they do not already have a church home. We will leave you with all the information that we have gathered during camp with the hope that you will welcome new faces into your church and foster the growth of those who make commitments to Christ.
