Food, Medical, and Rooms

All of the medication sent to camp will be collected and distributed by the camp nurses. The camp nurses do a great job of tracking and pursuing students so they stay consistent with their meds.

If you are sending medication along, please put everything in a zip lock bag with your child’s name on it. Please write out a paper with instructions for usage and put it in the zip lock bag. A leader will be collecting all of the medications when you drop your student off.

Dietary Needs
The Maranatha food service team is very willing to work with your child’s dietary needs. On your student’s registration form, there’s a spot to indicate any dietary needs. Also, you may contact Maranatha Bible Camp directly with specific needs and questions.

Students will need to bring their own bedding (sleeping bag, pillow). Each student will have their own bed, size of rooms varies by grade and campus. Boys and girls are never allowed to enter a cabin assigned to the opposite gender. Each room will have a leader in it with students.
