Outpost Coordinator Instructions:
- If you are a new outpost group, we can partner you with an established outpost to help you with any of your needs.
- Outposts provide their own transport, camping gear and food and camp in the site allocated to your Outpost during Camp Work Days.
- Work out other expenses (gear, meals, transport, etc) the camp fee does not cover. Parents will be paying you this amount separately and is not included in online registration.
- Print this flyer ((link coming soon)) to hand out to boys and invite them personally to attend. Email parents and attach the flyer, be sure to let them know the total for camp, including your expenses, which may need to be adjusted depending on how many sign up.
- Have everyone register online. There are forms there we have to have so you cannot register for the boys. They don’t have to pay online immediately, but their registration is not complete until they pay in full.
- Automated camper reports are emailed to your designated Outpost Camp Coordinator. If you are not receiving them, contact Adair Koontz (firstname.lastname@example.org). These reports help you keep track of who owes you for additional expenses.
- Select your Outpost camp staff and get your pastor to sign this Pastor's Approval Form. Every adult over 18 sleeping over HAS to turn in this form on arrival at camp!
- There is an additional $10 fee per game for those who sign up for AirSoft [min. age is 12 years at time of camp]
