What is our main focus?
We’re dedicated at Monroe to sharing the love of Jesus Christ and growing young disciples not only through our camp activities, but also through our daily, intentional, and focused times of devotion and vespers. We believe the outdoor setting is one of the most perfect places to deepen our relationship with Jesus.
What is covered?
Your fees to camp provide an all-inclusive experience for your camper. All meals and snacks, lodging, activities, supplies, and a camp t-shirt are included with your camp fees. No additional money is required for campers once they arrive.
What about refunds?
Refunds, minus the deposit will be made if a cancellation is received 31 days or more before your registered camp begins. Cancellations received 30-15 days to your camp will receive 50% refund. Cancelations 14 days prior to your scheduled camp are not eligible for refunds. Additionally, those registered but not attending on the day camp begins forfeit their registration fees. Requests for refunds due to illness or accidents must be accompanied by a doctor’s note. No refund will be issued for early departure from a camp due to a camper violation of policy or for reasons of personal choice.
Do I have to be of a particular religious denomination to come and will I feel comfortable?
While Camp Monroe is committed to the Presbyterian tradition, we welcome and embrace believers of all faith traditions. We only ask that all campers be willing to participate in devotion, vespers, and small group discussion that are part of all our camps. We do not in any way try to convert children to become “Presbyterian.”
Where will I be staying and what kind of bathrooms do you have?
You will be in a cabin of campers of the same gender and appropriate age with two trained counselors. Cabins have bunk beds, electricity, and air condition to keep it cool. Bathrooms are in our bathhouses in the center of a cabin unit. Bathhouses include one male and one female restroom with three separate shower stalls each. Additionally, bathhouses have a large meeting area perfect for inter-cabin activities, allowing campers a special place and time for interaction, activities, and growth.
Can my friend come with me and be in the same cabin?
Yes. In the registration process you will be asked if you have a cabin mate preference. You can put in one friend’s name and he/she must also put down your name. Making new friends is an important part of the camp experience.
Can I visit the camp before I come?
You bet! Call us at (910) 276-1654 to arrange a tour.
