We are running overnight camps as scheduled in 2022! All COVID updates for 2022 camps will be posted here.
Last update: 3/15/22
Camp Sunrise will continue to follow all federal, state, and local regulations regarding COVID-19.
Vaccinations & Face Coverings: We strongly recommend, but do not require, that all eligible campers be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before their session of camp. At this point, we anticipate that masks will not be required at any time for campers or staff.
Sanitation: Our cleaning practices include regular, thorough cleaning of restrooms and high-touch areas.
Temperature Checks: At this point, we anticipate taking temperature checks of all staff and campers when they arrive.
Drop-off and Pickup: We are still determining the best policies for drop-off and pickup for 2022 youth camps. Whether they are in-person or drive-through only, we highly recommend that parents complete all payments and health forms online before you arrive.
Cabin Distancing: Girls' and boys' cabins will generally be socially distanced during meals and chapels. Other activities will not practice cabin distancing.
Overnight Camp FAQs
Packing & Dress Code
Men’s/Boys’ Dress: For evening services, collared shirts and either nice jeans or khakis are required. T-shirts and shorts that reach at least three-fourths of the way to the knee are appropriate at other times.
Food, Lodging, & Activities
Our girls' lodge provides a friendly, comfortable place to stay. Each large room houses up to 8 campers, plus a counselor. A mattress, shelving, towel bars and coat hanger hooks are located at each bed. The lodge is air conditioned, keeping the temperature nice and cool even when it's hot outside. A central restroom is easily accessible via a hallway.
Each connected pair of boys' lodge rooms provides beds for up to 9 campers, along with their counselor. Each room has a private bathroom, along with shelves, a towel bar, and coat hanger hooks for each camper. Each room is air-conditioned, keeping the temperature nice and cool even when it's hot outside.
Check-in & Check-out
For all Junior and Teen camps, check-in is on Sunday at 4pm.
This year, we're doing a drive-through check-in! We'll have staff ready to meet you at your car, help move your camper's luggage, discuss check-out approvals and medications, and answer any questions you have. (Dinner will be provided for campers later on Sunday evening.)
For all Junior and Teen camps, check-out is on Friday at 5pm.
We will likely do checkout drive-through style this summer. When you arrive, a staff member will greet you and verify your ID against our list of approved drivers. You can then drive to the main parking lot, where your camper will meet you.
Safety & Communication
Be sure to follow Camp Sunrise on Facebook so you can see the pictures we post throughout the week. We'll do our best to post photos every other day.
While campers are not allowed to have personal phones with them, family and friends are welcome to write to campers. Please address mail to 1427 Slate Mine Road SE, Fairmount, GA 30139. Be sure to include the camper's name on the envelope and mail it by Tuesday so it has time to arrive at camp.
Parents are welcome to call camp at 706-337-3394 in case of a family emergency, and we can put their child on the phone to talk with them. Campers are also welcome to call home on a camp phone in case of emergency.
We work hard to ensure your camper's health and safety throughout their stay at camp. Everything from swim tests to staff training to reminders to stay hydrated are all involved in keeping your child safe. However, even in the rare event of an injury or illness, our staff are prepared to take good care of your child.
First aid: A staff member is on duty at the Health Center for each week of camp. They are prepared to deal with anything from medication and minor scrapes to a medical emergency. You will receive a call about any significant injury or illness.
Insurance: In case of accident or illness, your family insurance will be relied on to cover necessary expenses.
Registration & Fees
Yes! We believe every child should experience the life-changing impact of camp, but camp isn't cheap. If you're unable to pay full price, we have full and partial Camperships available to help. To request a Campership, simply contact us with the week of camp you're interested in, and what amount of Campership funds you will need.
A deposit of $50 is required when you register. The remaining balance is due 2 weeks before your camp session begins. If you haven't already set up automatic payments, you have a couple of options for paying any remaining camp fees:
- You can pay via credit card online, via an email we'll send you a few weeks before camp begins.
- You can pay via check when you arrive at camp for check-in. (No cash, please.)
Switching weeks - After you've registered, you may switch weeks of camp within the same summer at no charge, for any reason, as long as there is space available.
Cancellation Policy - If you need to cancel due to a personal or family emergency, we will refund all camp fees other than your $50 deposit. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refunds for other reasons.
Camp Sunrise maintains high standards of Christian conduct. Uncooperative or noncompliant campers are subject to dismissal.
