What is NOW Camps Dorm Policies?Sex/Gender We only put campers of the same sex/gender in cabins together since campers share cabin space. Counselors for each cabin are also the same sex/gender as their campers. Sexual Identity Our heart is to truly love all and want to point ALL to the forgiveness and hope we can have in the perfect life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We sincerely want everyone to come to camp. NOW Camp also believes our campers contribute to our Christian community and the accomplishment of NOW Camp’s mission through our deeply held beliefs, so it’s important for them to be aware of what we believe to be God’s teaching on sexual identity, which influences our rooming policies. As set forth in our Statement of Faith, we believe that in God’s creation sex and gender are synonymous, and that they are determined by an individual’s biological sex at birth. Because of our desire for ALL campers to have an amazing experience while at camp, we are unable (and not equipped) to simultaneously accommodate and care well for campers who will share a dormitory together with other campers of differing beliefs and comfort levels. Specifically, this means campers who: • desire to be called by pronouns different from their sex/gender • proclaim their identity as a non-human species • are transitioning to a different gender from the one given at birth • proclaim their identity to be LGBTQA+ (We realize that identity and attraction can be complicated, and may not necessarily preclude your camper from attending camp, so we encourage you to contact us if you have any questions regarding your camper.) We are grateful for our many camper families and for the trust they give us in caring for their children.
Can individuals register for camp?Our camp offers group registration for churches to bring their youth groups. NOW Camps does not provide chaperones for the individuals that attend and rely on the youth groups to provide their own adult supervision. Because of this, NOW Camps is not offering individuals to register at this time.
