Camp Chinquapin Guest Guidelines

Before coming to camp, please understand we are operating under continually changing COVID guidelines, that will be updated as we are able.

Our desire and purpose as followers of Jesus are to honor God, love others, and maintain our faithful witness to the community around us. We are following COVID-19 guidance from the state and county health department, putting the health and safety of our staff and guests as of upmost importance. Camp Chinquapin staff will be following these guidelines to protect your family and ourselves.

Though this season at Camp Chinquapin may not look or feel the same, we are certain that God is faithful and at work! If you feel you cannot adhere to these guidelines, please do not come to Camp Chinquapin at this time. If we feel that someone’s health and safety is being compromised while you are at camp, you may be asked to leave and forfeit your stay. As we are able, these guidelines will be adjusted.
