What training does the staff undergo?

WKYC staff go through a briefing prior to the camp starting, which covers a variety of topics including, behavior management, dealing with homesickness, conflict resolution, child abuse prevention, and many other camp-specific areas. Some staff are also Red Cross CPR and First Aid certified. Prior to training, WKYC staff are carefully screened by the camp Director of each week.


Does the staff go through any type of background check?

WKYC staff all have to apply to be on staff. This includes providing two church references. Each of these references have to fill out a form online that goes directly to the director. These references are reviewed by the director of that week and approved or declined before the staff member can come to camp. Outside of the directors privy each staff member must apply for a background check. The results are reviewed by the camp security officer who sends the approval or declined notices to each director.


What happens if my child is sick, injured or homesick?

WKYC has a licensed medical personal on staff each week who is available in case a camper is sick or injured. We strive to have a RN on staff but this person may be a Doctor, EMT, First Responder, RN, etc. He/She is in close contact with staff and the Camp Director. In case of an emergency, the Crittenden County Hospital is just 15 minutes away. If your child gets sick or injured, the Medical Staff or the Camp Director will call you. If your child is homesick, the Camp Director will call you and let you know what is going on. At WKYC we are partners with you to make sure that your child is safe, healthy and happy.


Can I contact my child while he / she is at camp?

You can send your child letters through the mail and they will be distributed each day. Campers are able to send letters back to you as well. Phone calls are limited unless a camper is sick or if there is a problem.


My child has allegies, medications or other special health needs.  Can WKYC accommodate him / her?

WKYC will work with families on a case by case basis to determine if we are the right camp for your child. We regularly have campers that take medications or have allergies. Our licensed medical personal and staff can handle most situations, but if you are concerned, please call the Director prior to registering your child and speak with the Camp Director.


How much money should I send with my child?

No money is required at camp. The only exception to that is with camp T-shirts but these can be purchased at check-in.


Can I request my child to be in the same cabin as his / her friend?

Yes. There is a place on the registration form to make a buddy request. If you have questions or concerns after registration, please feel free to contact the Director.
