The Medical Exemption is not a waiver for medical treatment, should some form of care be needed while at camp. Instead it is a waiver indicating your child is not required to have a full physical exam and immunizations prior to attending camp – an assertion that your child is in good health before entering a community setting. Should a need for care arise during a youth program, while we immediately treat every situation through prayer and obtain care from a resident Christian Science Nurse, we would immediately call you to find out what course of continuing care you’d prefer for your child, and then we follow the parent’s request.

DiscoveryBound is current program name for our Field Program. John “Cap” and Marianne Andrews, the founders of Adventure Unlimited, started a local chapter-based “Field Program” in 1965 to help reinforce, on a year-round basis, the inspiration and fellowship families were experiencing at Christian Science camps during the summer.

Training school usually starts the 2nd week of June. All staff, except for Counselors-in-Training (CITs), should plan to arrive that day. CITs arrival day is earlier on June 8th, as they take part in additional training. Staff departure day is two days after Youth Camp’s final session ends, or if staff choose to stay and support Family Camp, it is two days after that program ends, depending on contractual agreements.
The Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program is designed for 17 & 18 year olds who want to train to be Youth Program Counselors. It offers them an opportunity to learn and grow their skills in a chosen activity area while gaining valuable leadership experience by living with campers and supporting a cabin. More…
