Every family is automatically enrolled in autopay at the time of registration, meaning their credit card will be charged every month according to the invoice emailed to them. Every family is notified via email a week before their credit card is charged.

We know the cost of camp can be daunting, especially if you have more than one child. We strongly encourage you to involve the whole family and especially the camper to help fundraise for Camp. This increases a sense of appreciation and ownership in their spiritual development.  Recycling, yard work, housework, and sponsor letters have all proven helpful in raising money for Camp. You can request a sample sponsorship letter from camp@sandalschurch.com that we strongly encourage you to duplicate. 

Yes! We have waiting lists for all of our Camps that are full. There is no cost to be on the waiting list. In order to add a child to the waiting list, please complete the online registration at sandalschurch.com/camp, even if the Camp is full. Please do not call or email. Should a spot open up for your child, you will receive an email immediately, offering you the position. We will wait 24 hours to hear a response from the first person on the waitlist before calling subsequent families. Once the open spot is accepted, payment and registration for the Summer Camp will be due. 

We take our committed volunteers who serve every week in Family Ministries at Sandals Church. Our volunteers make great counselors because they already have existing relationships with the students in our ministries, and they are trained on all of our safety and procedural protocols. Every counselor is background checked by Sandals Church and Forest Home.

Yes. We will do our best to accommodate your request; however, we cannot make any guarantees. Email camp@sandalschurch.com to submit these requests. 

Forest Home does not make phone services available for campers. Generally, children are not able to make or receive phone calls during camp. If there is an extreme case involving your child at camp that warrants parental contact (i.e., discipline, extreme homesickness, injury, etc.), our camp staff will contact you.

For the safety of all campers, Forest Home DOES NOT allow visits by anyone other than church staff during camp. Early arrival or pick-up of campers by parents is permitted in certain cases, and they must be arranged in advance with church and camp staff. 

If you have a serious family emergency and need to contact your child while at camp, you may contact the Forest Home Roundhouse at 909-389-2300 and they can direct you to us. 

 Yes, there is always a full-time nurse on duty at camp. 

You will need to indicate the camper’s medication on the medical form, and at the time of drop off, you will submit all medications to the medication station. All medications must be in their original pharmacy container along with written instructions, all in a Ziploc plastic bag with the camper’s name printed on it. (PLEASE NOTE: if medications are not in the original container, the camp cannot administer them.)

Yes. If your student has special dietary needs, please contact Forest Home’s Food Service department for assistance. Robin Macharelli is the Secretary of the Food Service department. She can be reached at robinm@foresthome.org and at 909-389-2271. Forest Home asks that all dietary accommodation requests be made as soon as possible and no later than two weeks prior to camp.

Yes, we will email the packing list to all registered families once registration is completed.

This year Forest Home is NOT accepting mail OR care packages for campers. So we encourage you to pre-write letters for your campers and pack them into their luggage before they leave for camp.

FOREST HOME IS GOING CASHLESS FOR 2021.
Children’s Camp (Wild Rock) will utilize a prepaid store account system during the summer camp sessions. If your child is attending Wild Rock (Kids Camp) you will want to put funds in his/her store account. We suggest starting with approximately $20, and then add supplemental funds to the account if necessary. You will receive an email when the balance gets down to $5. Please have a conversation with your child prior to camp about budgeting, your plan to replenish funds (or not), what is okay to purchase, etc. The funds are loaded, electronically onto your child’s wristband when they arrive at check in. They only need to swipe their wristband to make purchases.
LOADING MONEY INTO THE PREPAID STORE ACCOUNT
To find the tab to set up, and manage the store account:
• Log into your online account at www.foresthome.org and locate the Registration’s page.
• Locate your camper’s itinerary
• Click on the Store Card tab. Click on this tab to add funds, as well as view the itemized purchases that your child makes while at camp.
***ONLY KIDS CAMP WILL USE THE PREPAID WRISTBAND SYSTEM***
Youth Camp will make all retail purchases by either using a credit, debit or an eGift Card (may be purchased at
