The cost of SEEK Camp, which is stated above, includes a camp T-Shirt. Camper acceptance is based on a first come first serve basis after needs are assessed. It is very important to apply early, as a waiting list is common for camp. All first time campers and their parents will complete a phone or face to face interview with the camp director and nurse prior to acceptance.
The all volunteer staff is made up of three camp directors, two registered nurses, a camp pastor, 60 cabin counselors as well as recreation, music and art coordinators. Also involved are the employees provided by Bridgeport Camp and Conference Center. All staff complete an in-service training, application and background check.
Counselors are paired with one camper each day. The needs of the campers vary from just hanging out to taking care of their most personal needs. A counselor is someone who is mature, has a heart for serving and is willing to put the world aside for one week and devote themselves to serve their camper no matter what the cost. 118 hours can be applied toward community service hours for school districts that encourage service to the community. Youth counselors must be involved in a local church (of any denomination) and have a church ministry staff listed on their application. Cost for counselors is paid in total by the churches of the North Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church.
