Frequently Asked Questions

At Sacramento Camps, we understand that parents and campers may have various questions about their child’s upcoming adventure. Our Frequently Asked Questions page is expertly crafted by a crack-team of rabid squirrels from Mount Hope to address these inquiries comprehensively. Their aim is to alleviate any concerns and ensure parents feel confident and well-informed about the enriching experience their children will have at camp.

If you have additional questions not covered here, please feel free to reach out to us! We’re here to assist and will do our best to provide the information you need.

Dietary Restrictions

At the time of registration, it is crucial for campers with special dietary restrictions, such as gluten-free or lactose intolerance, to notify the camp to ensure that our kitchen can make necessary preparations. We are committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all campers, and advance notice allows us to accommodate their dietary needs appropriately. Moreover, campers with severe dietary restrictions are encouraged to bring their own food, empowering them to take an active role in managing their unique dietary requirements and ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable camp experience. Refrigeration is provided!

Mobile Devices

As of 2024, all camper electronic devices will be lovingly powered down and passed to a trusted adult before reaching camp. This includes any device that is Wi-Fi or cellular network capable, able to send messages of any kind and is able to view or keep video and pictures. These devices will be returned after leaving camp. If there is a specific need to contact a parent or guardian, it will be done with the help of the camp director or camp medic.

Devices that meet this criteria that are not powered off and held by a trusted adult will be confiscated and returned when leaving camp. Sacramento Camps is dedicated to this policy. If a camper or parent/guardian is not willing to comply, we are not the right camp for you. Failure to agree with this policy will result in registration and participation in camp being denied.

The one exception is a stand alone digital camera. The data card must be freshly formatted and presented at checkin. Please take time to download your precious Christmas photos before packing the camera.

Gender Identity

Sacramento Camps recognizes the changing landscape of the culture of our campers. Also, our campers come from a variety of communities, backgrounds and home lives. There will be a variety of answers among our campers as to gender issues. Our goal as Sacramento Camps is to focus on our identity in Christ. We will elevate our attention to God’s Kingdom and how we respond to the King as eternal beings. We believe the first responsibility is to help campers identify God’s authority and goodness. We trust that God will begin to bring order to the life of the believer as promised in scripture.

As a matter of practicality, cabins will be assigned by the camper’s sex at birth.

If you have more questions about gender identity at camp, please email ron@sacramentocamps.org for a larger discussion.

Refund Policy

In the event of a camper withdrawal from camp 15 days or more prior to the scheduled start date, a non-refundable fee of $50 will be retained and the remaining camp fees will be refunded. For withdrawals occurring within 14 days of the camp start date, no refunds will be issued. However, special requests for transfers of registration from one camper to another can be arranged if made seven days prior to the beginning of camp, with the deduction of the non-refundable $50 fee. We appreciate your understanding of these terms as they help us manage our resources effectively.
