HERE Is an updated list of Things to Know/Bring to The One21 Summer Experience at Butler Springs.

Registration will open at 4p at the SNACK SHACK (on the right as you enter camp). You will not be able to register before that time, nor can you get your spot in the dorm before you register. Make sure you have either paid in full before you come to camp or bring payment with you.

A part of your week is spent in grade based “tribes”. You will also get plenty of student ministry time, squad time, and alone time. But be prepared to hang out with your tribe for the week. Here are your Tribes:
Freshmen Tribe
Sophomore Tribe
Junior Tribe
Senior Tribe
Grad Tribe

Additional Reminders

  • Bring an extra t-shirt and shorts/pants that you don’t mind getting dirty.
  • Girls bring a nice outfit. 
  • Directed Free Time. This is a time each day where you do something you enjoy as you find ways to connect with God through culture. The “directed” part lasts 30 minutes. We will invest in you, give you some input,  and then you can choose to keep going with it during free time if you want. The options will include,Music, The Girls room Spoken Word, Sports, and Adventuring and Dig Deep with Stew. Why tell you this now? Because we want you to feel free to bring tools to enhance your experience.
