- What is it like to stay on the Fort Bluff campus?
The facilities at Fort Bluff are maintained with excellence. From lodge to cabin housing, each building is air conditioned and equipped with comfortable beds and bathroom facilities. Our kitchen staff prepare three hearty, home-cooked meals each day that are sure to leave guests satisfied.
- What does a typical day look like?
The Fort Bluff Camp experience is unique in that we provide various opportunities for recreation throughout the day. Between our main worship experiences, guests have the opportunity to participate in lake activities (kayaking, fishing, swimming, blobbing, waterslide and obstacle course), sporting activities (sand volleyball, basketball, field games, gaga ball and human foosball) and leisurely activities (ping pong, hiking, putt putt course, board games, carpet ball and arts and crafts).
- What denomination is Fort Bluff Camp?
Fort bluff is a non-denominational camp. For more information, please visit our “Statement of Faith” page.
- What if my student has specific dietary needs?
We are able to accommodate and assist in specific dietary needs. Please be sure to list any and all dietary needs when completing your student's Health Form during the online registration process.
- What about my child’s medical needs?
Fort Bluff maintains registered nurses on campus for signature camp weeks. Groups renting facilities and hosting their own week must provide their own nurse for medicinal distribution and supervision. In the event your child gets seriously ill or injured, we will contact you as soon as possible. We have at least one volunteer nurse on site during our summer camp session. If your child gets a minor cold or small cuts and bruises, our volunteer nurse(s) will be able to give them the attention they need. In the case of an emergency, Rhea County Medical Center is only nine miles away. We will do everything we can to ensure your child enjoys a safe and fun-filled summer at our camp!
- Will I be able to contact my student?
If you have any concerns or need to speak to your child, please call the office at 423-775-0488 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We have so many activities throughout the day that homesickness is a rarity.
- What do I need to do before my student arrives?
By browsing through our resources, you will find lists of items to pack, downloadable release forms, and planning packets. We will also send out schedules and planning packets via email to the church group leaders.
- Do you allow pets?
As much as we love our animals, Fort Bluff Camp requests that no pets be brought on campus with the exception of service animals.
- Can you accommodate persons with disabilities?
While our facilities are designed for comfort, please keep in mind we are in a nature setting. Things like rocks, tree debris, gravel walkways, and some steep vertical grades are a part of our facility. We do have some ability to accommodate persons with disabilities and we will do all we can to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Please speak with our staff prior to your visit about your particular needs.
- Can I bring my own food?
Though Fort Bluff Camp does provide delicious meals in our dining hall, you may bring non-perishable items/snacks for your cabin. Campers can purchase snacks and food items when our on-campus stores are open.
