  • What is the policy for early camper pick-up at Pettijohn Springs Christian Camp?
    At PSCC, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our campers. While we strongly encourage campers to participate in the entire session of Summer Camp to fully benefit from the experience, we understand that early camper pick-up may be necessary at times. In the circumstance of early camper pick-up, a parent or guardian MUST speak to that week’s Session Director BEFORE pick-up will be allowed. This policy ensures that we are aware of any changes to the camper's schedule and can make the necessary arrangements to ensure a smooth transition. It also allows us to maintain the safety and security of our campers by verifying the identity of the person picking them up. We appreciate your cooperation and commitment to the safety of every camper at PSCC.
  • Are cell phone allowed during camp sessions?
    We believe that camp should be a time for campers to unplug and connect with staff and their fellow campers. As such, we have a strict no cell phone policy at camp. We ask that all campers leave their cell phones at home or turn them in to camp staff upon arrival. This helps to create a distraction-free environment where campers can focus on spiritual growth, unity, and personal development.
