Dress Code

Please dress modestly. Girls should not wear spaghetti straps, halter tops, or strapless shirts. Per Plains Baptist Assembly rules, girls must wear a one-piece swimsuit. If you bring a two-piece (a tankini is a two-piece), you must wear a shirt over it while you are swimming. Everyone must wear a shirt/coverup to and from the swimming pool.

If I go as a volunteer, what do I have to do?

BE FLEXIBLE - Please be prepared to help out in various different situations—games, activities, worship times, discussion groups, home-sick kids, etc. You may be called on for some crazy thing. It will not be the most restful week of the summer for you, but the blessings you will receive will far outweigh the challenges. We’d love to have you join us!


Meet at Southwest at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 24. We will caravan to camp using church vans and Base Camp staff vehicles. If your child needs a booster seat, you are responsible for providing (and labeling) that seat. Everyone going to camp must bring a sack lunch and drink that morning.

Campers will arrive at Southwest around 8 pm on Wednesday, July 26.


Throughout our time at Base Camp, pictures will be posted on the ‘Southwest Children’s Ministry’ Facebook page. You must ‘like’ this page to be able to see the pictures. We will tag parents in their pictures of their kids.
