Extra info for adults
Texoma Baptist Youth Camp will conduct state required background checks on all adults (18+) attending this camp week. Additionally, every adult must provide a certificate stating that they have completed a state approved child abuse prevention course within the past 2 years.  Texoma Baptist Youth Camp will provide this course at registration for adults who do not have a certificate upon arrival.


 


Conduct

  • Campers are expected to follow the spirit of each rule - looking for a way to “get around” rules is just as rebellious as outright disobeying them.
  • All counselors and camp personnel will be obeyed exactly, promptly and with a good spirit.
  • No touching will be allowed between guys and girls.
  • Guys and girls are never permitted in the bunkhouse of the opposite gender.
  • Separate swimming will be maintained for guys and girls.  Spectators of the opposite gender will not be allowed at the pool or loitering near the modesty fence.
  • There will be no practical jokes or disorderly conduct on the campgrounds at any time, to include defacement of camp or campers’ property.  Any person responsible for such misconduct will be held financially responsible.


Contraband

  • No cell phones, MP3/CD players, ipods, laptops, walkie-talkies, TVs, radios or other similar electronic items will be permitted on the camp grounds (this includes in the bus or van).
  • No weapons are allowed on camp property.

 

Guys Dress Code

  • General -  No jewelry, skinny jeans, shorts, saggy pants, sweat pants or sleeveless shirts nor any article of clothing with worldly slogans or advertisements will be permitted.
  • Services - A collared shirt (tucked in) should be worn to all services. Jeans in good condition (not frayed, ripped or stained) are permitted.
  • Swimming - Swimming shorts are permitted for swimming.
  • Haircut - Guys hair should be cut so that it is above the ears and off the collar.


Girls Dress Code

  • General - No shorts, sleeveless tops, miniskirts, skorts, pants or capris, nor any article of clothing with worldly slogans or advertisements will be permitted.  All clothing must be modest - *knee length, loose-fitting, and not low.

Skirt-style culottes are permitted for activities. These are culottes designed in such a way as to be distinctly different from pants or shorts. There are two ways for this to be achieved: with pleats or with an additional apron of fabric that wraps around both the front AND the back to cover between the legs. Only these types of culottes will be permitted. *A knee length dress, skirt or culottes means that the length of the skirt covers bottom of the knee while seated.  The top of the slit is considered the length of the skirt. Any article of clothing, skirt or top that is form fitting or see-through is considered revealing clothing and is inappropriate.  If it is questionable, it is too tight and should be left at home. Any top measuring in excess of three finger widths from the collar bone to where the shirt begins is considered “too low”.  Lace does not constitute the top of the shirt.
  • Service - Modest skirts and dresses (no culottes) should be worn to all services.  Jean skirts in good condition (not frayed, ripped, or stained) are permitted.

  • Swimming - Modest swimming suits that completely cover the stomach and back are permitted for swimming.

 

This list is not exhaustive and can be amended at the discretion of camp counselors and personnel.

Failure to comply with camp rules or personnel will result in being sent home at the camper’s expense.
