Please contact us if you have special dietary requirements. We would love to work with you!

As a Christian organization, The Wilds maintains high standards of conduct and separation. Any uncooperative or noncompliant camper is subject to dismissal. Campers who use tobacco, alcohol, or any form of illegal drugs will be discharged.

Q: What should I wear?

Casual dress is appropriate for the informal camp atmosphere.

Men and boys: Clothing should come at least to the top of the knee. We suggest classy casual dress for evening and Sunday services (activity attire is appropriate at all times for Father/Son Campouts). For water activities, please wear dark shirts and shorts/swim trunks.

Ladies/Girls: Clothing should come at least to the top of the knee. Please no low necklines, narrow shoulder straps, tank tops, or skin-tight fashions. We suggest classy casual dress for evening and Sunday services. For water activities, please wear dark shirts and shorts over swimwear.

The Wilds reserves the right to ask anyone to change his or her outfit if, in the estimation of the staff, it does not comply with these standards.

Q: Is there anything I shouldn’t bring?

Please do not bring any tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, TVs, guns, or ammunition.

Q: Where will I stay?

Housing for each program may vary. Accommodations are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis after the completed registration form and deposit are received in our office. If the requested accommodation is full, we will confirm the next type of housing available (see accommodations section for details) and put you on standby for your first choice. You will receive a confirmation receipt once your registration has been processed.
