FAQs for Weekend on the Water


What should I bring to camp?
We have put together a packing list that will hopefully answer that question! 

What time can we arrive on Friday?
You should plan to arrive between 4 - 7 p.m. Dinner will be on your own. Grab a bite on your way to camp or bring food to grill out at your cabin. We will host a welcome event in the dining hall at 8 p.m.

What time is departure on Sunday?
Activities will close at 12 p.m. Please plan on leaving Camp no later than 1 p.m. 

What is the schedule for the weekend?
A general outline of our program schedule is available here

What will mealtimes look like while at Camp?

You will enjoy meals in the camp Dining Hall with your group.

What will camp activities look like?
We are excited to provide all of your favorite traditional camp activities that you remember from Spring Outing (archery, BBs, the zip line, paddle sports, shark's tooth hunting and more), PLUS boating activities! 

Can we bring bikes to Camp?
Yes. Camp is very large (more than 350 acres!), so many people find it helpful to bring their bicycles. North Carolina law requires anyone under the age of 16 to wear a helmet. Please put your bikes away before evening programs every night. 

Will I be able to make a campfire?
Campfires are allowed only in contained fire pits that are off the ground and 10 feet away from the cabin and trees. All ashes must be dumped in appropriate bins around Camp. 

Where should I park?
After unloading your belongings at your cabin, please park in the designated parking locations which will be pointed out upon arrival. Camp doesn't feel like camp when people's cars are all around the cabin area. Do the right thing: Park in the designated parking spots so that everybody can enjoy their camp experience to the fullest

Will there be a nurse on-site?
Yes. A nurse will be on-site during your stay. We will provide an emergency contact number for you to call as needed. Basic triage needs only will be available. 

What is the lost and found policy?
Camp will only hold the following specific list of items:

  • Jackets/Sweatshirts, Sleeping Bags, Blankets, Pillows
  • Prescription glasses, durable medical equipment, prescription medication
  • Shoes (not water shoes or sandals)
  • Backpacks
  • Life Jackets

Camp will keep these items for no longer than two weeks from the end of each weekend. After this time, these items will be donated or thrown away. Items that are soiled, damaged, or otherwise deemed not able to be safely stored will be discarded. Lost and found will be stored in a central location, not out in the open. If a participant is looking, the appropriate staff member will check if the item has been found. 

The list of items that Camp will not hold on to includes, but is not limited to:

  • Socks and underwear
  • all toiletries and toiletry bags
  • all swim gear including swimsuits and goggles
  • Hats
  • T-shirts
  • Pants
  • Shorts
  • Pajamas
  • Washcloths and towels
  • water shoes including sandals
  • water bottles
  • sunglasses
  • flashlights and headlamps
  • toys
  • arts and crafts projects 

Is there anything I can't bring?
There is no alcohol, smoking, firearms, or fireworks allowed on camp property.
