The daily schedule is filled with a variety of activities supervised by a dedicated staff. Swimming is a favorite activity in beautiful Lake Waccamaw. Free swimming and water games are enjoyed in the afternoon, while in the morning the camper has the option of signing up for swimming classes, canoeing, water skiing, tubing, or windsurfing. Other activities include soccer, crafts (including birdhouses), group games, skits, and fun times. In addition to these, there are exciting Bible classes, missionary stories, and group singing. Add lots of good food and you have a happy camper.
What It All Costs
A week at camp costs $195. This includes a registration fee of $95, and the balance of $100 is paid on arrival. If for any reason your child cannot attend, the registration fee is refundable until May 15. An additional fee of $35 is charged for skiing or tubing, or $30 for windsurfing. Those who engage in crafts pay according to the camper’s selections. Parents may help their children choose crafts on Sunday afternoon. Campers will also wish to have funds for Canteen, where they can purchase drinks and popcorn for 75¢ each or sno-cones for $1. T-shirts may also be purchased for $12, and offerings are taken up nightly for the speaker.
The week of camp is climaxed on Friday at 7:15 P.M. by a closing ceremony in which campers receive their numerous awards, sing the camp songs for their parents, and hear a final challenge from the week’s speaker. Parents are encouraged to attend this event by making reservations during registration on Sunday afternoon.
Parents, please note: At the awards ceremony, limited space forces us to restrict our guests to parents only. We will not be able to accommodate other relatives or children who are not camping. Please do not ask us to make exceptions.
Obedience to all camp rules is required. No tobacco, drugs, or alcoholic beverages are permitted. If brought to camp, such items will be confiscated and/or the camper sent home. In addition, cellphones, game systems, music players, other electronics, gum, and outside food are not permitted. These items, if brought, will be confiscated and returned at the end of the week. Each camper is expected to participate in all regular camp activities unless excused for sickness.
A Free Week at Camp
You may earn a free week at camp by bringing five new campers. If you bring three new campers, you may receive a 50% discount for your week of camp.
The Booster Club
A special group of campers, who comprise the Booster Club, is honored at the closing program each Friday evening. To be eligible, a camper must invite and bring someone who has never been to Ambassador Camp before.
A Word to Parents
Many parents desire a summer camp experience for their children. For the prospective camper, interest lies primarily in an exciting, fun-filled week of activity, a change from the usual routine of life. Parents wish the additional benefits of a safe and profitable situation at a price they can afford. Ambassador Camp offers all of this, as well as the eternal values of a Christ-centered program.
Since 1957, hundreds of boys and girls have experienced some of the happiest times of their lives while at the same time coming to know a new and special friend, Jesus Christ.
In order to make the camper’s experience a happy and satisfactory one, parents are encouraged to maintain a positive attitude about camp and avoid discussion of possible homesickness. Campers may not have phone calls or visits, except during an emergency. Parents should not bring a child to camp who is sick or not fully recovered from an illness.
The first two and last two weeks available for registration are for ages 8-12, with a teen week open to ages 13-17 in the middle. Teen week allows for a more in-depth treatment of the theme by the speaker, and also includes options for activities more appropriate for the age. Day Camp is also available concurrently with the first junior week, running from morning to afternoon, and aimed at children (future campers hopefully!) 4-7 years old.
