Hello Friends and Campers,
We pray you are well. COVID-19 has obviously caused some changes in our 30th annual Crossfire summer basketball camp schedule. We will not be having the June 15-19 session in Hendersonville,NC. The half a day session scheduled for June 22-25 at the Erwin High and middle schools hopefully will be moved to the middle or to late July or early August. Because Mars Hill University is shut down for the summer we will not be able to have our full day and overnight basketball camps there this year July 19-23.
Thanks for your understanding and patience as we are praying for the opportunity to teach your camper basketball as well as Christian principles this summer.
For any questions please call Crossfire Ministries at 828-255-9111

ITEMS WHICH CAMPERS MAY NOT BRING TO CAMP
Boys’ and Girls’ room assignments are separate. Several Adult counselors will reside on each floor of the dorms (Men with boys and Women with girls). If in suites, the suites house eight campers that share a bathroom. If on floors by paired roommates, the hall has a shared restroom or one restroom per four campers. Roommates will be determined by office staff. Preferences indicated on applications will be considered.
All camp rules are made for the safety of each camper and for the consideration of other campers. The rules will be explained at the first campers’ meeting after dinner on Sunday. Each camper should always have a buddy or coach with them when crossing a road or going back to the dorm for any reason. Any violation of rules or behavior problems will be dealt with by camp staff and could result in a camper being sent home without a refund.
All medications should be placed in a plastic bag with your camper’s name and any necessary information for proper administration. No medicines of any kind should be in the dorm room. You will be asked to give your medications to the staff member in charge of medications at registration. This staff member will administer all medications daily.
Spending money for concessions, etc. can be deposited into the Camp Bank at registration. When campers make a purchase from the concession stand or Crossfire souvenir stand, the purchase will be subtracted from the camper’s “camp bank account.” This system precludes campers needing cash with them and it prevents the loss of cash either by carelessness or theft. Any left over funds will be returned to the campers at the end of camp or, if you choose to do so, the remaining amount can be placed in our camp scholarship fund.
Will be open during break times. Sports drinks, healthy snacks, etc. at an average cost of $1.00 will be available. Crossfire products will also be available: shirts, basketballs, backpacks, and DVD’s. The DVD’s are of the ACC All-Star Games and Randy Shepherd’s fundamental basketball drills and his personal testimony. All items are priced at $20.
PROGRAM FOR PARENTS
THURSDAY, JULY 23, 3:00 P.M.
If you desire to do so parents, you may come prior to the program time and pack your campers’ things or, after the program, campers can go to their dorm rooms with parents and pick up their things. The dorm rooms MUST be left in good condition with all personal items removed. Parents, you can help us greatly by double-checking to be certain your campers have all of their belongings and that the dorm room is left in proper condition. Neither CROSSFIRE nor MARS HILL UNIVERSITY will be responsible for items left in the dorm rooms. All items left in the dorms after camp will be thrown away immediately following camp. It is very important that you get all of your belongings out of the dorm room before you leave the campus.
MEDICATIONS that you bring to camp also need to be retrieved from the staff person who administers them. Medications that are left at camp will be thrown away. By law medications cannot be mailed, so make sure medications are NOT left behind.
Keep Crossfire in your prayers as we prepare for this exciting week at Crossfire Basketball Camp. Please email Karen Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions. If you prefer leaving a voice message, you may do so at:
