Additionally, scholarships are available based on need and availability. For more information about how to apply, email Tyler Lemmel on the Traders Point Youth team at tlemmel@tpcc.org.

During the week, everyone will be in a group where they can hang out and talk about what they’re learning. Groups have anywhere from six to twelve students and are led by leaders who have gone through Traders Point Youth’s onboarding process, which includes a background check, staff interview, orientation, and training. There will be at least one adult for every six students on the trip. If you’d like to learn more about leading at High School Camp, connect with the youth pastor at your campus by filling out this form and selecting the topic “Youth.” 

Rooms at Hope College are dorm and suite style with a shared bathroom. Not all dorms are air conditioned, but outdoor temperatures can range from the mid-40s at night to the high-80s in the day, so pack accordingly!

Students will be assigned one roommate for the week. There is a space to list housing requests on the registration (this is the only place requests will be taken.) We’ll do our very best to assure each student gets one of their requests. Due to the volume of participants, once assignments have been made there will be no changes.

Things to keep in mind as you request roommates:

  1. If you want to room with someone, reach out to them and have them list you on their registration too!
  2. List more than one person. We can only assign each person one roommate! Listing multiple people helps ensure that you’ll end up with someone you know.

We will take charter buses with bathrooms to and from High School Camp. Buses will depart from and return to Traders Point Christian Church Northwest. Hope College is approximately four hours away. 

Only one form is required for participation in High School Camp. We’ll send you a link to complete the CIY MOVE Emergency Medical Release Form by Sunday, May 14.
