Things to know
Camp Areopagus is a “Christian” camp operated and staffed by members of the church of Christ. Campers will receive religious instruction during each session. Our curriculum is taken directly from the Bible, not from any “denominational” creed or doctrine. Campers are ONLY presented information and are not “pressured” by teachers, counselors, or staff to make religious decisions or commitments. In those situations, we will make every attempt to contact parents/guardians prior to proceeding.

- Proper clothing becoming a Christian must be worn in all public areas.

- This is not an all-inclusive list but only a brief list of basics. Please provide enough clothes for at least 5 days. There is no laundry available for camper use.
- We understand that you may wish to visit or call your camper during the week. Please keep in mind that visiting can often cause younger campers, who are having a great time, to become homesick. Since there is not a convenient time, and it can take away from the focus, we do not allow visits or calls during the week.
- If your camper needs you, we will let them call. We do not let kids call home to “check-in” every day.
- Please feel free to send camper mail to encourage your camper. Keep in mind that it may take a few days to arrive. Mail to 53 Iroquois Lane Conway, AR 72032.
