Summer Camp Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, an account will automatically be created and a temporary password will be emailed to you at time of registration. To get to your account, also referred to as your parent dashboard, go to move.sc/parentportal and login using your email address and password. You can view your payment schedule, download your statement, manage your account settings, edit/update your credit card information and make a payment.
Yes! You’ll need to indicate his/her special needs when registering and we will connect with you so we can best accommodate your child’s needs while at camp. Please complete this process as soon as possible so that we can meet and begin a relationship before camp. You can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The final balance is due July 1, 2023.
If a cancellation is made by March 16, 2023 a full refund will be issued. Any cancellations made from March 17-May 18, 2023 will receive a 50% refund. Any cancellations after May 18, 2023 will receive no refund of any kind. All cancellations must be emailed to email@example.com and confirmed with an email response.
At time of registration, every family is automatically enrolled in autopay, meaning their credit card will be charged every month according to the invoice emailed to them. Every family is notified via email a week prior to their credit card being 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 notably sponsor letters have all proven helpful in raising money for camp. You can request a sample sponsorship letter from firstname.lastname@example.org 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. Should a spot open up for your child, you will receive an email immediately, offering you the position, and we will wait 24 hours to hear a response from the first person on the waitlist before we call subsequent families. Once the open spot is accepted, payment and registration for the 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 also 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. The requests can be made during registration or by emailing email@example.com.
Forest Home does not make phone services available for campers. Generally speaking, 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.) you will be contacted by our camp staff.
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 – they must be arranged in advance with church and camp staff.
Yes there is always a full time nurse on duty at camp.
You will need to indicate the camper’s medication at drop off, you will submit all medications to the medication station.
