Everything you need to know about Bootcamp and Camp 75
What You Need to Know
When you sign your student up for Bootcamp & Camp 75 you are signing up for 2 weeks (June 15th - 18th and July 13-16th). We believe these two weeks go hand in hand and it's difficult to attend one and not the other! Bootcamp is a week-long overnight camp where they’ll get to know their small group and team, do fun activities, hear some great music and messages and have an incredible time! Camp 75 takes place locally and is where they’ll get to go love and serve the community with their teams. Both weeks students will be developing their leadership skills, learning that they are loved and have incredible value, and having tons of fun!

What happens if my student has to miss part of Bootcamp or Camp 75?

Bootcamp is an incredibly fun week where your student will get to hang out with their small group (by grade and gender) ,and their team that they'll be placed on for the week of Camp 75. There's lots of free time to hang out at the lake or pool, night sessions with awesome music and practical teaching, theme nights where we have different activities planned and so much more!

Northpoint will provide transportation to and from Bootcamp (charter busses), as well as transportation to and from each camp the week of Camp 75. Students will need transportation to and from Northpoint for Bootcamp and to and from Northpoint each day of Camp 75.

How does adult supervision work?
Riverbend requires that we bring 1 adult for every 10 students. These adults will be made up of our Camp 75 interns, Small Group Leaders, and our College Crew that will be extra supervision provided by returning college students. Riverbend also has staff members and 2 nurses onsite 24/7. Each of our adults attending will be required to go through training and background checks as well.
Is Camp 75 overnight like Bootcamp?
No. Camp 75 is a local retreat which means your student will come home each night after camp 75 is over for the day. Students have a break from 12pm till 5pm each day. They will need to be picked up from Northpoint, or arrange for other transportation.
What if my student has daily medication?
Before leaving for bootcamp you will place all of your student's medication in a bag. When you arrive to drop your student off for bootcamp you will fill out the dosage and times for the medication to be taken. There will be a registered nurse who will be administering the medication on site.
