Trinity Lutheran Bible Camp is staffed with adults who have education and experience in such areas as Professional Medical Training, Youth Leadership, Community Health, Child Development and Biblical Counseling. All staff on the premises is involved in Christian growth through their home church and most have raised or are raising children. We thank you for trusting us to the Christian nurture of your children. In the event that discipline is necessary please be aware of the All discipline will be discussed with a staff member, Counselor and Camper and carried out within a respectful and non-harmful manner. It will include PRAYER and SCRIPTURE! †
In the event your Youth is in need of discipline due to behavior unacceptable at Camp the following process will occur:
1) First situation = Discussion about circumstances and a warning
2) Second need for discipline = “Time Out” from activity with possible opportunity for additional Kitchen Patrol or other added chore
3) Third time may result in a phone call home to discuss our options.
In very rare instances, it may be requested that a Counselor or Camper be removed from the Camp by a parent or legal guardian. Actions that may lead to this would include, repeated discipline problems, illegal or illicit behavior (again, this is RARE). Please review these expectations with your Campers and contact me if you have any
We do not enter Camp with the expectation that these events will occur; rather we expect a WONDERFUL time to be had by ALL! God Bless your preparation for Millersylvania!
