Pack some sunscreen... we're headed back to the beach for REALife Summer Camp (SCAMP)!  

SCAMP 2019 is closed and we’re ready for an awesome week! Below is information for the families heading to SCAMP with us. 


You should have marked your teen’s dietary needs and restrictions on your registration form. If you did not, or if you are unsure if you did, please respond as soon as possible to let us know if your teen has any dietary needs on the trip.


Everyone is all paid up. Thank you.

***Please note that at this point ALL payments made for this trip are non-refundable. We have already paid camp, food and transportation costs for your teen to attend. So even if your teen can no longer attend, we still have to pay for their spot.


The price of SCAMP includes: all meals and lodging except for two lunch meals on our travel days. Bring money for those two meals and any extra money you desire for souvenirs, extra snacks and optional activities during your free time at the camp facility. There is a snack shack on site with lots of great food and drinks, as well as an arcade near by.


Accompanying us on the trip are our REALife leaders. Leaders will be assigned to groups of about 8 students each. All rooms are biological gender specific and have leader chaperones.


You filled out a medical release for your teen with your registration. If there is any updated information you need to give us, please reply and do so as soon as possible.


Arrive at Meck between 8:30-9am on Monday, June 24 (do not arrive earlier than 8:30am). Meet on the patio by The Grounds. We will return between 4-5pm Friday, June 28. *(your teen will call or text as we get closer to home with a more exact time)

Please inform your teen about this in advance to prepare them. Leaders will have their phones to take any pictures students may want, and we’ll have a photographer at SCAMP as well. The emergency number below will allow you to connect with your teen during the day (emergencies only please). Students are also not required to bring cell phones, and Mecklenburg Community Church is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
