How do I get more details?
You’ll get assigned to a campsite and a Camp Lead couple. Your Camp Leads will connect with you via email a few days after registration closes. They’ll invite you and the other folks in your campsite to meet before camp - that’s the perfect time to ask questions, make plans for who’s bringing and borrowing what, and to bond a bit before the experience itself. Also, if you have any questions, send an email to David and Jamie Bradford firstname.lastname@example.org, or call/text them at 419-203-9855
What is a lead Couple?
A lead couple is a husband and wife team who have a heart and desire to assist others in their marriage and Christian walk.
Should my spouse and I be a lead couple?
If you have ever lead a small group we need you to volunteer as a lead couple. Being a lead couple is not rocket science. You sign up like anyone else, but you will be invited to two meetings before couples camp to go over some very basic information on leading your group. The meetings will be awesome, but you will not be required to attend. If you are interested in being a lead, Please contact David and Jamie Bradford at email@example.com
What time do we need to be there on Friday?
Campsite groups can start hiking in at 4:00pm. You must begin by 6:30pm. As long as you are pn Otyokwah property by 6:30pm, or in line on the road, you're good. Your entire Campsite group must be present to begin the hike in.
How hard is the hike in?
That really depends on your fitness and how much you pack. You won’t be summiting Everest, but it won’t be a morning stroll through the woods, either. You don’t need to be an elite athlete—or any sort of athlete, really. Everyone that attempts the hill will make it up. (Remember, a little challenge is good for us.)
Do we really have to sleep in a tent?
Have to? You mean get to! There are no other options for Couples Camp and you’re gonna love it.
What if we don't have a tent?
You can work all of that out with your Camp Leads. No one should let this stop them from attending. If you can’t find a friend to borrow one from, we’ll work it out.
What if we have never camped before?
Awesome. You’re in for a great time. Your Camp Leads will help make sure you’re prepared and it will be a breeze. Remember, it’s only two nights. You’ve got this.
How are CAMPSITES organized?
Campsite groups are typically 3-4 couples (6-8 folks) led by a Camp Lead couple. You get the chance during ticketing to choose a Camp Lead couple preference if you have one. We do our best to group people according to their choice of Camp Lead but that doesn’t always work out. If you choose “No preference” for your Camp Lead, we will group folks by demographics. Regardless of who you end up with, there’s plenty of time to hang out with folks you know—or don’t yet know—outside of your campsite.
What if we don't know anybody?
Totally fine. There are going to be plenty of new folks to meet. And if you and your spouse just want some alone time, there will be space for that, too.
What should we bring?
Once you’re signed up, you’ll get a packing list. But the short version: each of you should bring one duffel bag and one backpack filled with camping gear, a camp chair, dry clothes and food.
What if my spouse or I are pregnant?
CONGRATS! And you’re definitely still welcome to come. Use your best judgment on whether or not mama really wants to sleep on the ground, and how far along you guys will be in your pregnancy. And please, please talk to your doctor ahead of time. Also, tell your Camp Leads. We’ll have volunteer medics on-site, but not a midwife.
What if it rains?
Being in nature is a lot like being married. You don’t get to only choose the good times. If it gets a little damp or cold, we’ll lean in and make the best of it.
What's the electricity situation?
There is none. We’ll be off the grid. Don’t bring anything that needs electricity.
No Cell PhoneS?
No cell phones. We promise it’ll feel like freedom. Your Camp Leads will collect these before you hike in, or best bet, just leave yours at home or in the car. (See below RE: what if there’s an emergency.)
What if we need to arrive late or leave early?
Again, as with marriage...if you’re in, you’re in for the whole thing. No late arrivals or early departures
What if there is an emergency at home?
We’ll have a system in place for folks to reach you in the case of an emergency. If you need to leave, we’ll help make that happen.
