How many boys will attend?
Adventure Camp has the capacity for 21 boys.
What does my camper need to bring to camp?
Stay tuned for the What To Bring List! Palomar will provide all the camping
equipment you will need.
When and where is drop off and pick up?
Drop off time will be between 3:30 – 5:30pm on Sunday. The Closing Ceremony will begin at 10am Saturday morning at Fire Ring 1. Here is a Camp Map.
How do I get to camp!?
Please see our Directions. *Do not take the Nate Harrison grade.
That's right! Our campers and counselors sleep in sleeping bags on pads under the stars next to the fire. Our counselors have a clear view of all the campers during the night and do a great job of taking care of the boys!
Can I send mail to my camper?
WE LOVE MAIL! We highly recommend prewriting letters/packages and bringing them with you Sunday when you drop off your camper. This saves on postage and time in transit. Please label mail: Camp Location (Main Camp), Camp Attending/Dates, Camper Name, and the DAY you would like them to receive it. Check out our Palomar Care Packages! You can also get your camper a dozen chocolate chip cookies to eat during Free Time and share with their friends. All proceeds will go to our Camper Scholarship Fund!
How much money should I send with my camper?
We have a gift shop that includes candy and apparel. Usually $50 covers more
than enough. When you come and pick your camper up, the gift shop will be open
to make last minute purchases.
What if my camper takes medication? All medications must be administered
by our trained staff. If your camper needs to take medication at camp, you must
turn them in when you arrive on Sunday in a plastic bag with the Medication Form.
All over-the-counter and non-prescription drugs remain in the ORIGINAL CONTAINER.
All prescription medications must be in a PHARMACY-LABELED container with the
camper’s name on it. Loose pills will not be accepted.
Can I call my camper or can my camper call home?
To discourage homesickness, our policy is that campers will only call home in an emergency. If you need us to get a message to your camper, give us a call and we will make sure it gets to them.
What if my camper gets homesick?
PCCC counselors are trained on how to deal with homesickness. If the counselor needs extra help, leadership will have a conversation with the camper and we will call the parents as a last resort.
What is the camper/counselor ratio?
1 counselor to 6 campers.
How do you select your counselors? Do you do background checks?
PCCC understands that the counselors have the largest impact on the campers and take hiring very seriously. All counselors have a strong relationship with the Lord and desire to serve Him by loving on campers this summer! Every full time and seasonal staff member gets background checked and they go through an intense interviewing process. Check out ourSafety page or call us if you have more specific questions about your child’s safety at camp.
What if there is a medical emergency?
All of our counselors and staff are CPR and First Aid Certified. If there was a life threatening emergency, our first responder is a fire department that is eight minutes away. Please check Camp Updates and we will update you with the information we have about emergencies.
Can dietary needs be accommodated?
Yes they can. When you register, please let us know your needs and we will accommodate appropriately.
