Camp Schedule


VISION AND STORY In 1950 Charles and Bonnie Barge, foresters from Macon, Mississippi, began an interdenominational evangelical Christian camp ministry in the midst of their 50,000 acre pine forest in rural Noxubee County. This gracious family has continued through the years to provide godly leadership for this wonderful ministry called Lake Forest Ranch. The 60 acre lake and the towering pine trees that surround the lake and the camp property provide a breathtaking natural setting for a deeply inspiring camp experience for children, students, and their leaders. The LFR facilities are modern and comfortable and the options provided for recreation are numerous and incredibly fun. New rec options are added every year. Lake Forest Ranch exists to magnify the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and to build up the Body of Christ. Godly staff leadership combined with programming that is geared to the exact age-group of the campers attending, means that the camp experience will have a lasting effect on young hearts who are a part of your ministry in the local church. The LFR mission statement is, “Building Relationships for Eternal Impact.” This is accomplished by making it our number one priority for each of the campers to experience meaningful one-on-one interaction with their carefully trained camp counselor. Counselors are equipped to spend quality individual time with every one of their campers in order to clearly explain the message of the gospel, to listen to the needs of their camper and pray for him/her, and to point the camper to the truth of God’s Word so that freedom in Christ can be found. These staff members love kids and they want to enjoy this beautiful place with them. The love of Christ is so abundantly poured out through them and the results are life-changing for many kids every week of the summer.

Christ In You IN christ The past two years at LFR we have proclaimed the message of Faith (Forever & Always I Trust Him) and the message of Grace (God’s Relentless Affection Christ Expresses). Simply stated, forgiveness of sin and new life in our Lord Jesus Christ is received and continued by grace through faith. This year at Lake Forest we plan to follow-up the vital “grace through faith” message with the good news of exactly what happens when a person takes that step and becomes a believer. What happens is excitingly expressed in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “If any man be in Christ he is a new creation, the old is gone and the new has come.” And in Colossians 1:27, “…Christ in you the hope of glory.” When a person is rescued from sin and death he becomes a new alive creation AND he no longer has to “fall short of the glory of God.” There is a transformation that takes place and that awesome transformation can be summarized by the words “Christ is in you and you are in Christ.” So for summer 2017 our LFR theme will be “Christ IN You IN Christ.” We will proclaim all summer long this important message of the good news that forever changes everything. In the following pages, let us tell you a few of the details of what Lake Forest Ranch offers your group. Feel free to email, call or write us for more information about any of this. We invite you to join us this summer for an unforgettable experience in the beautiful and amazing walk with our Lord Jesus Christ.

CAMP ACTIVITIES Recreation options for all ages of campers include: horseback riding; a beautiful new swimming pool for loads of fun in the water; a ropes course with elements like (climbing wall, zip line, “flying squirrel�, leap of faith, and the dangle duo); a wild ride on a tube behind a ski boat; two basketball courts (indoor and outdoor); tennis; beach volleyball; archery; swimming; fishing; kyaking; paddle boating; athletic tournaments; a fully equipped game room; crafts; disc golf and much more. One of the best fun activities will be getting to spend time with an awesome camp counselor and some friends.

SUMMER STAFF We carefully and prayerfully select our staff from a large number of applicants each year from all around the country. The staff goes through extensive pre-summer training. Staff members make sure that the campers, who are our guests every week, have role models to follow who love Jesus, love people, and who know how to have a lot of fun. Counselors make it their number one ministry priority to spend one-on-one time with each of their campers to encourage them and share the love of Christ and the message of the gospel with them. This is done in a compassionate and gracious spirit. At Lake Forest Ranch we don’t manipulate campers to make spiritual decisions, but lives are changed every camp session as the Good News message is made clear through these precious ambassadors for Christ. Each camp counselor has a staff cabin partner to assist in building relationships with campers and help in all the other jobs necessary to keep the camp running smoothly. If you know any young adults (ages 16 and up) who are interested in LFR summer camp ministry, please encourage them to call us or go to our website for more information.

KIDS CAMPs 7


KIDS CAMPs Kids Camp at LFR is super fun! Page 5 of this booklet gives the awesome list of some of the camp activities that are available, but there’s more! Campers get to experience two morning activities classes each day and then on the last morning of camp they get to participate in The Amazing Race (a wild and wacky series of fun and competitive events that involve getting wet, balls flying and races of all kinds). Pow Wow each evening is a highlight of our day. With a combination of funny icebreaker videos, Kids Praise music and speakers who really “get kids” and who point them effectively to Jesus. Whether they are juggling fire sticks, making themselves disappear, climbing into a giant balloon or bringing out their puppets to teach the kiddos, these speakers are so good at what they do. Check out the camp speakers on the next two pages.

The Sunshine Club for ages 7 and 8, provides an extra staff member in addition to the counselor and cabin partner to make sure those children have guidance 24/7 while they are at camp.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY LEADERSHIP TESTIMONIES I have experienced many spiritual blessings from my time at LFR. The counselors and staff are outstanding and it blesses my heart to see these young men and women talking with our kids individually, and as a whole, about what it means to be a Christian … There are not enough words to express my many spiritual blessings and positive thoughts about this week. The Holy Spirit is very evident here and Jesus is on the move! I am thankful I got to be a part of it. Audra Cato, First Presbyterian Church in Baton Rouge, LA

It’s so awesome to see kids worship with song. It’s like a glimpse of what Heaven will be. Susan Akin, Highland Colony Baptist Church in Madison, MS

This place has been a huge blessing to me personally! My oldest daughter, now 16, was saved at camp at the age of 9 years old and this year my youngest daughter, 9 years old, was saved here. Tracy McKenzie, New Hope Baptist Church in Foxworth, MS

Lake Forest Ranch is my happy place. It is a place for kids and adults to be refreshed, encouraged, and challenged in their faith. The attention to excellence and detail while offering fun activities is the best. There is no place like LFR! Aimee Bradley, Mt. Vernon Church in Columbus, MS

We have made lasting memories here and it feels so comfortable, like visiting family—eternal family. Tara Moore, Woolmarket Baptist Church in Biloxi, MS

Lake Forest Ranch is a camp that is truly founded on the Word of God. LFR camp is a great place to bring kids. The kids are loved on and taught Bible truths and each child is met personally where they are with their relationship with Christ. Coming to LFR is a highlight of my summer. I love being out in nature enjoying God’s beauty. Lisa Lowell, Southside Baptist Church in Huntsville, AL

STUDENT CAMPS

12


LFR is not a youth ministry conference like “Student Life” and “Centrifuge”, but rather it is truly a summer camp experience for church youth groups. While conferences may focus on large group energy, the focus at LFR is one-on-one evangelism, mentoring and discipleship of young people led by godly collegeage staff members. Director, Rich Malone, compares LFR to a weeklong “DNow” only packed with a lot more outdoor fun. There is so much that your students get to do. One-on-one connection with a counselor, times of worship, small group Bible study, Quiet Time, and listening to the camp speaker’s messages a couple of times each day all add up to a tremendous opportunity for spiritual growth and renewal in Christ. All of the fantastic recreation options mentioned on page five of this booklet are available for your group members plus more. Special recreation opportunities for student campers include high energy team competition events each morning and the week concluding with The Amazing Race competition event. As always, one of the favorite activities will be getting to hang out with the awesome LFR counselors and staff members and doing fun things with them and with friends. It is an unbeatable combination of fun, spiritual growth and inspiration.

STUDENT CAMPS SPEAKERS Steve Miller teaches the message of

“Christ in you the hope of glory” in a powerful way. He often draws from the Old Testament accounts of men like Noah, Jonah, Daniel, Abraham, and David to bring home the richness of the Christ life that was shadowed beautifully in the lives of those important men of the faith. Steve has a depth, humility and passion for Christ that radiates through his anointed teaching. He has been the author of our Bible studies for the student camps for the past five years.

STUDENT CAMP 3


STUDENT MINISTRY LEADERSHIP TESTIMONIES We are constantly exhorted to strive for peace and unity in the Spirit as believers. This was one thing that stood out to me about LFR. But it’s so subtle and goes without even being noticed. My time here is characterized as “resting in a safe place.” The unity, encouragement and peace experienced have challenged me to be a facilitator of God’s grace by bringing the same atmosphere to our youth ministry. Caleb Whalley, First Baptist Church in Lake Charles, LA I really can’t put into words what God has done this week. I have attended lots of camps but have never felt God’s love like this week. Jen Newman, Springhill Baptist Church in Millport, AL I loved my week here. Such a blessing and time for spiritual renewal and growth. Walter Donald, Red Door Tutoring Ministries in Jackson, MS LFR is truly a little taste of heaven and that says everything for me. Beth Landreth, Concord Baptist Church in Cullman, AL Staff were so intentional in building relationships with each of our student campers—loving them, having so much fun with them, and pouring into them spiritually. I believe the combination of being saturated in God’s Word and surrounded by young counselors living and loving like “Jesus with skin on” made the greatest impact on our students. Personally, I did not expect that anyone had been praying and preparing for me. I was greatly humbled by the thoughtful care shown to adult church staff all week … and greatly encouraged! Instead of leaving camp exhausted, I was refreshed and renewed in my own walk with God—gripped anew by His grace and love. I so enjoyed and needed the time to develop relationships with others who share a similar heart for God. Cindy Holbrook, Concord Baptist Church in Cullman, AL I’ve watched my most devoted students come out with their struggles and become so much more ready to impact the Kingdom at home, and now that I as the adult have had rest, I am ready to help them make that happen! Polly Pittman, Orange Beach United Methodist Church in Orange Beach, AL It’s such an unknown benefit to be able to disconnect from the world for a few days to be able to hear God. Our students (and adults too) fill our lives with so much noise we don’t realize how disconnected from Jesus we often are. Steven Sanders, His Heart/Calvary Baptist Church in Jackson, MS

Bill Reif has been a part of the LFR

Mission CAMP MACON

experience longer than any of our speakers. His messages communicate the power of grace-filled relationships with a depth that comes from his many years of pursuing Christ and teaching teenagers the good news of hope in Him. Bill has been one of the visionaries behind Mission Camp Macon and has been the head coach since its beginnings in 2004. His messages relate to students right where they are in a relaxed, relevant, and inspiring way. 15

Mission Camp Macon 2017 is the opportunity that your older youth group members and college students have been looking for (ages 14 and older); it is a chance to do strategic missions and enjoy a faith-building camp experience all during the same week of the summer. The mission work will begin early each morning with student missionaries being pre-assigned to one of two different ministry options through which they can impact lives in Jesus’ name. They will be joined by pastors, young people, and other members of the local community. The mission team will be involved in ministry in these two ways: Providing leadership for one of our eight Kids Day Camps that will be hosted at different churches and community centers throughout the county each morning Tuesday through Saturday. Providing leadership for a huge Youth Team Competition Day Camp that takes place at Lake Forest Ranch; junior and senior high age students will be bused to LFR each morning and the student missionaries will serve as their spiritual mentors and team leaders. After lunch and a morning “praise report”, the student missionaries will get to enjoy the afternoon recreation, evening worship and fellowship activities that are a distinctive of LFR summer camp.

17


GROUP LEADER INFO Adults who are the group leaders (this includes youth and children’s ministry pastors/ directors, as well as volunteer ministry staff from your church) will greatly benefit from the week at LFR.

How Many Adult Leaders per Group? There’s room for 1 adult per 8 campers. This means that if you bring 9 campers you will be allowed 2 adult leaders. For more than this ratio, please call LFR to make sure that space is available. It is not required that you bring any adults to stay during the week with campers, but it is a great benefit if adult leaders who are a part of the ongoing ministry to your children/students are present for the week of camp.

Why Bring Adult Leaders? We want to bless some of the ministry team that works with the children/ students in your church. There are wonderful times of personal enrichment and spiritual growth available for your ministry team through Bible study and training. Though we do not require churches to bring any adults to stay for the camp session, it is a significant benefit for your group. We ESPECIALLY urge churches to send their student or children’s ministry pastor/director to be a part of the week if at all possible.

What Will the Adult Leaders Be Doing? On the first night of each camp, there will be a dessert fellowship for the camp counselor to meet with all the adult church leaders so that they can talk and pray together about the needs of the campers that they have brought and so the counselors can find out from those adult leaders about the special interests, needs, and spiritual concerns of the campers from adults who know them and who have been involved in their lives. That’s why we request that you bring part of your ministry team and not only van drivers. Your group will also have a special opportunity each evening that we call “church group time.” This is a chance to reconnect with your group for fun and to check in on the group to see how everybody is doing. Without an adult leader present from your church to lead that time,

18


the campers will miss out on that opportunity to stay connected with just your group each day. Also, we ask that the adult leaders assist with some of the many recreation options each afternoon. What is the Cost of Group Leaders? The head adult leader for each group receives a discount to attend as follows: groups with over 7 campers the adult leader discount is a total cost of $100 if the “Discount Check List” is finished and submitted one month prior to the start date of your camp. For groups with 4-7 campers the discount is half of the camper price if the “Discount Check List” is returned on time. If the group size is less than four campers, there is not a discount for the head adult leader. The “Discount Check List” can be found on the LFR website. Adult leaders beyond the Head of the group will pay the same amount as the campers pay. May the Adult Leaders Bring their Children Who are Younger than Camper Age to Stay in the Cabin With Them? For children who are younger than camper age who stay in the cabin with their parent(s), it will only cost ½ camper price. While there is not a charge for children under the age of 4, please bring these little ones along only as a last resort since that will limit the adult leader’s freedom to take advantage of all of the opportunities available during the week. Is Child Care Available for My Younger-than-Camper-Age Child during the Camp Session? The only time that child care will be available will be for one hour during Bible study each morning. If you would like to request child-care for additional times, this may be lined up for an added charge of $10 per hour for one to four children. Please let us know well in advance of the camp starting date if this will be needed and the hours needed so we can recruit a qualified babysitter for you.

online reservations and

GROUP RESERVATIONS AND REGISTRATIONS What is a Group Reservation and How is it Different from a Group Member Registration? A Group Reservation is for reserving “X” number of spaces for your entire group. Whereas a Group Member Registration is a form that is filled out for each individual camper and the camper’s parent signs it and submits it (more on this farther down). Therefore, there is one Group Reservation and many Group Member Registrations. How do I Reserve Spaces at Camp for a Group? Step One – Beginning Thursday Feb. 2, 2017, spaces are reserved when a Group Reservation Form is filled out from the LFR website and submitted (go online and it is so easy to do!). Or by phone request we will postal mail you a paper copy of the Group Reservation Form (our old method) and you can fill it out and mail it or fax it to us (only request paper copies if you have no internet service). Step Two – Mail a check to Lake Forest Ranch for the total deposit due which will be $100 multiplied times the number of campers and adult leaders OR you may pay through our online payment option. Important to note! - the postmark of the date the check is mailed or the date that the online payment is made will be the official reservation date that we will consider when camps are full and we have to decide which group will have to choose an alternate date. What About Early Reservations? Groups that have attended summer camp at LFR in any of the past three summers (2014, 2015, or 2016), are given the opportunity to make reservations before our official reservation start date of Thursday February 2, 2017 with a non-refundable $100 early reservation deposit. The deposit can be our online payment option or paid by check. Early reservation is a “thank you” to our regular groups. But it is very important for these groups to remember this detail – the total deposit of $100 per camper for your group is due on or before Feb. 2, 2017 to retain your reservation. Don’t be late.

20

Will There be Room for us if we Don’t Qualify for Early Reservation? Yes! If your group is new to LFR, we will work hard to find room for you next summer. We love having new groups and we have many new groups each year. The best way to assure getting one of your two camp session options is to make sure that you go to the LFR website on February 2, 2017 and fill out your Group Reservation Form. Also you must either postmark your check to Lake Forest Ranch on Thursday February 2, 2017 or submit a bank draft on the LFR web link (please, do this on that exact date for the best chance to get the camp session you desire). It is almost never a problem getting a group into a camp session if two camp session options are selected on the Group Reservation Form. We will publish on the www.lakeforestranch.com website on Feb. 2 any camp sessions that are either full or close to being full because of the early reservations.


registrations for 2017! How Many Campers May We Bring to a Camp Session? You may bring as many as we have space for up to a full camp of 190 campers. However, there are a few details to consider if you are tempted to guess optimistically high on your total number of spaces reserved without having actual commitments: 1. For groups of 55 campers and under (not including adult leaders) – you will have until exactly one month prior to your camp session starting date to contact us with an exact number of campers without losing any $100 deposits. Within a month of camp you may still replace same gender campers who drop out with a substitute camper without losing the deposit. But, for example, if you have a boy drop out less than a month before your camp and a girl wants to go as a replacement, we cannot guarantee you that the deposit may be used for her. It all depends on space availability; if the space is available for another girl then it is not a problem transferring the deposit to her. 2. For groups of over 55 campers (not including adult leaders) – you will be required to have your exact number of campers on the day you make your reservation beginning Feb. 2, 2017 or you will lose some deposits (explanation to follow). So if you send in your Group Reservation Form and your deposit on the first official day of Group Reservations, Thursday Feb. 2, then only 55 of those will carry with them a one month before camp refund option. All of those deposits over 55 total campers will be subject to loss. Example – Feb. 2 you reserve 75 spaces and your camp begins May 23; if on April 23 you contact LFR to inform us that you will only be bringing 10 campers, you will only lose 20 deposits because you beat the one month deadline for the first 55 campers. Call if you have any questions about this. How Do I Submit Registrations on Each of the Campers that I will Bring? Registration will be online. When your reservation is confirmed by the LFR Administrative Team, you will be given an online Group Reservation Number by email. This number must be given to the parents of the campers who are coming with you for them to be able to tie in to your group when they register online. Please provide electronic access for those who may not have that at home. Paper registrations will be permitted only as a last resort. Call us to receive the paper copy. How Long do I Have After I Make a Reservation Before My Individual Camper Registrations are Due? After your group is confirmed following Feb. 2, 2017 you will have 6 weeks after your confirmation date to see that all campers’ registrations are submitted online. We will keep you notified about your group’s progress in submitting those online registrations. These must be completed by parents since an online e-signature is required. The registration form also includes necessary health and medical information. You will have until one month before your camp beginning date to finalize all registrations but please work to meet this completion of all online registrations by 6 weeks after receiving your Group Reservation confirmation. How May I Make Payments? The payment options are either mail a check to LFR or our online payment option. There is a service charge added if you pay online. The final total payment after the initial deposit is not due until registration day at LFR. You may just bring the final payment with you.

21


Questions Asked & Questions Answered Why is Kids Camp C&G and Student Camp 2 Less Expensive than the Others? Kids Camp C & G are one night shorter than all of the other Kids Camps. We call them mini camps because there only three nights instead of four nights, Student Camp 2 is one night shorter than all the other student camps (four nights instead of 5 nights). All three of these mini-camps will end after lunch on the last day instead of after breakfast. How Flexible are the Age Limits that are Listed on the Camp Schedule? The ages are somewhat flexible. For Student Camps, the campers must be 11 by camp time and they must be 18 sometime during calendar year 2017. For example, if a camper hits 19 on January 2, 2017, he is still age appropriate for a Student Camp. Kids Campers must be at least age seven by camp time and must be age twelve some time during calendar year 2017. Preteen camps will allow campers who are ages 9 at camp time and age twelve some time during calendar year 2017. As you can see, there is more flexibility on the high end than the low end of the ages, but we do make exceptions. For permission to make exceptions to these policies, a call to the camp director, Rich Malone, is necessary. What is the Sunshine Club and How Does that Work? For ages 7 & 8 for all kids camps, except the two preteen camps, we strongly recommend (though we do not require) them to be in the Sunshine Club. The Sunshine Club is more age appropriate for our youngest campers. They will only have two late nights instead of 3 or 4 late nights , they will have a brief rest period (about 45 minutes) after lunch each day, they will have an extra staff member called a Sunshine Club Leader with them at all times when the campers’ counselor is not with them, they have a leader to keep up with their money, they are led to activities and don’t have to remember their afternoon schedule. In addition, they have help with reading the quiet time guide and the Bible study, and music time is more age specific to them. Sunshine Clubhouse meeting is so fun too and includes free snacks every day!! Parents along with the group leader (when reserving spaces) must decide if they want their child in this program, but there is limited space. If a parent does not register the child in the Sunshine Club, he/she may still attend camp but will be at camp without the extra staff member, will be responsible for keeping up with his own money and afternoon rec schedule, and horseback riding may not be avalible. Will We Lose Our Deposit If a Child Does Not Attend No Matter the Circumstances? Not necessarily; there are life altering circumstances such as the death of a close family member or the child becoming sick or injured (verifiable by a doctor’s note). We want to be gracious towards those who go through a family crisis and we will take each case individually. These refund requests must be submitted prior to the camp session beginning if at all possible.

22


FinANCIAL AID (CAMPERSHIPS) Call the camp office to find out how all of these funds may be accessed. Is There Financial Aid Available for LFR Summer Camp? We have a few opportunities for members of your group to receive special assistance with the cost for camp. 1. The Great Commission Campership Fund – It has been shown that children and students ages 9-18 are the most receptive to the gospel. This fund is to be used to provide incentives to churches, church leadership and Christian campers to bring unsaved children and students to LFR. This fund seeks to increase the number of opportunities for campers, who have never heard the Gospel, to hear and respond in saving faith. This program is for unsaved youth (ages 9-18), and not merely un-churched kids. These funds will be provided on a first-come-first-served basis until they run out. There may be a limit to the number of camperships that will be made available per church group and there are two options in the way that the camperships may be utilized. Option #1 – “Bring a Friend” – Bring an unsaved friend (to the best of their knowledge), and both campers get 50% off the camper fees, or if they choose, they can pay full fee and their friend goes to camp for free. Option #2 – “Community Outreach” – For every unsaved youth that a group brings to camp, the group gets to reduce their expenses by one paid campership. 2. Family-In-Need Campership Fund – If your church has children whose family cannot afford camp due to a financial crisis and if the church is unable to completely cover the cost, there are some partial and full camperships available. Contact the LFR office for more information about availability and what to do to qualify for these funds.

3. Angel Tree Campership Fund - If a member of your group has a parent who is incarcerated, they are eligible for a full campership to LFR.
