Q: What is the Check In Date and why is it different then the trip date?
A: This year we are doing check in one day before the trip. High School and Junior High students will be responsible to pack ahead of time and bring their duffle and sleeping bag/pillow to Grace Fellowship Church between the times of 12pm and 7pm on Saturday, August 1st. The carry-on bag does not need to be checked in ahead of time, but can be brought with the student on the first day of the trip. This will allow for a smoother and quicker check in on Sunday morning of the 2nd.
*Please email Jessica if you have a family conflict and are not available during the check in day times.
Q: Why would I choose Wildwood?
A: Wildwood is Hume Lake's Discipleship camp. It's for students who want to dive deeper in their faith, be challenged to think more theologically about the world around them and grow in their leadership skills. We ask that those of you who sign up for Wildwood would have been to Ponderosa with us at least once, if not twice before.
Q: What should I pack?
A: Great question! Check out the packing list HERE.
Q: What happens if the Trip fills up?
A: Don’t worry, we have a waiting list! There will be a Waiting List for every trip that does not require an application. The Waiting List is first come first serve based on sign up and student cancelations. You can usually find these Waiting Lists online at overflowtheyouth.com.
Q: What are my financial/payment options?
A: Scholarship, Payment Plan, or Work Program. Please see more in depth details above in Finances section.
Q: What if my child has/needs medication while on the Trip?
A: OVERFLOW will collect all medications during Check-In. When you turn medications in, you will fill out a Medication Release form informing OVERFLOW and Hume Lake at what time, and the quantity of medications your student needs to receive. This includes Asthmatic Inhalers and any Anxiety medications. Medication will be distributed by Hume Lake's nursing staff. Hume Lake has a 24 hour health center with nurses and a doctor on call in the event of medical need.
Q: How do we receive updates while my student is gone?
A: During Check-In you will receive an Emergency Card with the Youth Staff cell phone numbers. Also on this Emergency Card, you will find a Text Code. Through this Text Messaging System you will receive daily updates about what your student is doing during their trip. You MUST opt in to this System, or you will not receive the updates.
Q: What happens if my child has to cancel, do I get a refund?
A: In our Cancelation Policy, we outline in our Cancelation Procedures. You are responsible for your child's entire cost for their spot immediately upon registering for the trip. Funds will only be refunded if your child’s spot can be filled with another student from the Waiting List. ALL deposits are always non-refundable and non-transferable. You can view the detailed cancellation policy & exceptions HERE.
Q: When are Scholarship Applications due?
A: Scholarships Applications are due 2 months before the trip on June 2nd. This allows us to best partner with you and your student.
