Summer Camp Frequently Asked Questions


Is there an end of the week showcase?

Yes. Students will be rehearsing songs and choreography from the camp's theme show and will perform a short musical theater showcase at the end of the week for family and friends. 

Will camp be indoors, outdoors, or both?  
All camps will primarily be held indoors. The Viewpoint Retreat will include a mix of indoor and outdoor activities.

Can you explain the drop-off and pick up process?
There will be carline procedures in place for both pick up and drop off. Each family will receive a car tag (a laminated name placard) on the first day of camp in order to identify their car/family during the week. There will be cones marking the traffic pattern in the parking lot and car line attendants placed to facilitate the process. 

Can I drop off early? 
Because we rent the facilities that we use, our staff arrives shortly before you do. In the mornings, though we are inside, we ask that you remain outside in your cars (in the carline) until we officially open the doors and start unloading cars.  

How do the age cutoffs work?
Students must be turning the minimum age by the last day of the camp, and must be no older than the maximum age on the day of registration. For example, since the lowest age requirement for Spectacular Kids Camp is 6, if a student turns 6 on the last day of the desired week of camp, he or she is eligible to be registered. If he or she was to turn 6 the day after the desired week of camp ends, he or she would not be eligible to be registered. Likewise, an 11-year-old student who would turn 12 before camp starts could be registered while he/she is still 11.

How are the teams broken up? 
Campers will be divided into teams to be determined based on age and friend requests made when registering. Students will primarily stay within their groups during the day but there will be times where all campers are sharing a larger space depending on the activity. Please note that we may not be able to accommodate all friend requests, but we will do our best!

Can you tell me more about the theme days?
While not required, historically nearly every camper dresses up for theme days. It is tons of fun to step out of your comfort zone in terms of attire and creativity and develop a unique costume to share with friends in the camp setting. It can be simple or complex—that’s up to you! It’s a fun way to ‘break the ice’ each day and help students feel comfortable (while going a bit crazy!).

What about lunch and snack?
Campers should bring their own lunch and water bottle each day. Snacks will be provided. Veritas camp students will be dismissed before lunch time, but will be provided a mid-morning snack.


How do the age cutoffs work?

For Show Camp, students must be current 6th-8th grades (or must be current 5th grade and turning 12 by December 31, 2024). For Masters Camp, students must be current 9th-12th grades and must be at least age 14 by July 11th (the first day of camp).

My child is not able to attend auditions. Can he/she still register for camp?
Yes! Everyone who registers for these camps is cast in the show, regardless of whether or not they attend auditions. However, students who do not attend auditions will not be considered for featured roles in the show and will be cast in the ensemble. If at all possible, please plan to attend auditions.
Are there parent committee commitments for these shows?
Yes. We ask that one parent per child assist with functions of making the show happen, including sets, costumes, props, hair & makeup, tech, and other areas. In the summer, parent committees are generally not quite as involved as they are during our regular season. 
Are any conflicts/planned absences allowed?
Conflicts and absences are not allowed during the weeks of camp. If you have a special circumstance that may require an absence, email Jacob Filegar at before auditions to discuss it.
Why is the cost of this camp split into two payments?
At registration, the first half of the total camp cost is due. This is the camp tuition that funds the “camp” part of the camp. Before auditions, the second half of the total camp cost is due. This is the production fee that funds the production of the show itself.


Why is Viewpoint changing in 2024?

Changing Richmond school schedules and CrossRoads Camp & Conference Center's availability necessitated the change to a two-night retreat. Now, Viewpoint will be a school-year kickoff to get students' hearts and minds focused at the beginning of a new year.

How will the Viewpoint Retreat be different in 2024?
Viewpoint will still have outdoor games, hiking, ropes courses, competitions, and lots of worship and Bible teaching, just like before. We're removing the musical theater performance and may have less late-night theme parties.
