We are grateful for the use of this church facility and purpose to respect the building at all times knowing that our conduct is an example to others. As a Christian organization, we want to exemplify Christ in our actions - keeping the building clean, not running in the hallways and being polite and courteous to others. Parents, it is imperative that you watch your children at all times. You also may want to tag important possessions (backpacks, notebooks, etc.) with your child’s first and last name so that we can reunite lost items with their proper owner. We will collect an offering for the church on Tuesday. Please make any checks payable to Champions Forest Baptist.

Arrival, Student Camps, Training, & Other Items

Arrival

Registration begins at 8:30 am on Monday and 8:45 on Tuesday and Wednesday. When you arrive at the church, please follow the signs. Adults and children will register in the lobby the first day. You will be required to have an adult sign your child in and out each day in their camp classroom. We will also have a numbering/sticker system for younger children to match children with parents for safety reasons. You will be required to show your “half” of the sticker/number to pick up your children.


The Practicum will begin promptly at 9 a.m., and conclude at 4 p.m. each day, so please allow extra time for registration the first day.
