Ready for the best week of the summer?

Camp Rock is the elementary summer camp of Forest Hill Church. The camp is for rising 3rd to 5th graders and is held in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of western North Carolina. Our mission is for kids to know Christ by engaging their interests in discovery with their relationship with God. Our hope is that your kids will have an experience with God and grow deeper in their knowledge of His love for them.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does filling out an application guarantee my spot?

Unfortunately, no. We have too many applicants to take everyone to Camp, so each application will go through a review process and an interview. You will be notified if your application has been accepted by March 1st.

Will there be any training?

Yes! Everyone is required to attend one of our two Camp Rock trainings:

June 6th 10:00am-12:00pm at the Fort Mill Campus
July 2nd 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Waxhaw Campus

What are my accommodations at Camp Rock?

The female cabin at Camp Rock is similar to a hotel.  There will be about 4 counselors per room and there are 2 double beds in each room.  The male cabin has bunk beds in each room.  There will be about 4 counselors per room, and there are 2 sets of bunk beds per room. Linens and towels are provided, but you are always welcome to bring your own.

Should I bring gifts/supplies for my campers?

Many counselors choose to provide a variety of gifts/supplies for their campers (ex. matching t-shirts, headbands, bandanas, wristbands, or other accessories). Matching outfits can be coordinated with parents ahead of time, but you can do as much or as little as you please. We recommend providing bandanas at the very least.

Will I have my cell phone?

We collect all phones on the bus ride to Camp Rock, and give them back on the bus ride back.  We do this because we believe it is important to unplug for the week so that we can dedicate our full focus toward campers.

If I’m a counselor, will I have a junior counselor?

There are fewer Junior Counselors than Counselors, so not every counselor will have a Junior Counselor.  We typically assign Junior Counselors to counselors who have experience at Camp Rock.

Can I be a counselor for both weeks of Camp Rock?

We ask everyone to be a counselor for just 1 week. If we are in need of additional counselors, then we will ask some counselors to do both weeks.

Can I drive myself to camp?

No, we ask all counselors and senior counselors to ride the bus. The Week 1 bus leaves at 12:30pm on 7/13 and returns at 6:00pm on 7/18.  The Week 2 bus leaves at 12:30pm on 7/13 and returns at 6:00pm on 7/18. You should eat lunch before arriving to get on the bus.

Is there any cost?

Just a $50 transportation fee for the bus.
