Once we receive the registration form, you will receive an email (or letter if an email address was not provided), including directions to camp, suggested packing list, confirmation of any balance due, and other information as appropriate.

Camper Spending Money
What is a canteen card? A canteen card is how we keep track of your child’s spending money while they are at NorthLand Bible Camp. Whatever money you or your child bring to check-in for use during the week is put into an individual account, called a Canteen Card. These cards are pieces of paper with change amounts listed in a grid, and they allow staff to keep track of what money your camper has spent throughout the week.
Where can my child spend money at camp? Canteen, which opens at roughly 1:30 p.m. daily, offers a variety of snacks and candy for purchase. Also, free-will offerings are collected during evening chapel service.
How much money should I send with my child to camp? This depends on the child. Typically, campers have $10 to $20 or more in spending money.
What happens to any money my child doesn’t spend at the end of the week? We keep track of what money each camper has spent from the amount they brought with them. If there is anything left on their Canteen Card at the end of the week, we give that money back to them at check-out.
How do I add money to my child’s canteen card? Parents and campers can only add money to the Canteen Cards during check-in. We are unable to add money to Canteen Cards after the week of camp has begun.

Camper’s Name c/o Assembly Park Camp 10682 E. Minnesuing Acres Dr. Lake Nebagamon, WI 54849
During camp, you can also send an email to your camper at email@example.com. Please be sure put the camper’s name in the “Subject Line” of the email.
Opening and Closing Days How do I get to camp? A map with directions can be found at the button below.
How does Camper Check-In and Registration work? You may check-in your child anytime between 4:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, the first day of camp. Check-in takes place inside the chapel—the large building on the left that sits along the camp driveway. This is where you will make sure that all paperwork and payments have been submitted; campers will find out their cabin name and Bible class number, turn in canteen money, and so forth.
Where do I bring my child’s medications? All camper medication must be turned in to the nurse in their original containers. She will be stationed in the Nurse’s Cabin, next to the monkey bars. Please be prepared to answer any questions the nurse(s) may have about the items you are dropping off.
When should I leave? You are welcome to stay for dinner, which will be served at 5:30 p.m. We encourage you to leave as soon after dinner as you can to provide for the safety and security of camp and to help campers transition quickly so that everyone can have a great week!
How does closing day work? Pick-up time is at 9:00 a.m. You will check-out your camper just outside of the chapel—the large building on the left that sits along the camp driveway.
How do I check-out my camper? Only an authorized parent or other authorized adult can pick up a child, and that adult must be listed on your child’s Registration form.
Where do I pick up my camper’s medication? See the camp Nurse in the Nurse’s cabin (next to the monkey bars) to pick up your camper’s medications.
Special Dietary Needs
My child has special dietary needs – what should I do? NorthLand Bible Camp does its best to accommodate special dietary needs. It is important that you note dietary needs and food allergies on the registration form so we can plan for the necessary accommodations.
While Camp cannot plan menus around particular individuals, we have learned helpful ways to serve children with food allergies. Some guests find it necessary to bring a supply of their own food to supplement the camp’s menu and canteen choices. Kitchen staff will see that it is properly stored and dispense the food at appropriate times.
Medical Needs and Concerns
Is there medical staff on site during the week of camp? There is at least one nurse on site during the week of camp.
My child has medications—what should I do with them? and how does my child receive them throughout the week? You can drop off your child’s medications with our camp nurse(s) at Check-In, including any needed instructions.All prescription medication MUST be in original container, labeled with patient’s name, description, dosage, time taken, expiration date, and doctor’s name.Medications are administered by the camp nurse immediately following meal times and at light’s out.
What happens if my child gets sick or injured at camp? Camp staff is committed to excellence and safety. While open, our waterfront is staffed by a certified lifeguard and a nurse at all times. The camp nurse(s) may administer over-the-counter medication and prescribed medication as guided by the information provided in the camper’s medical form. In the event of an extended illness or injury, parents will be notified as soon as possible.
General Summer Camp Questions What should my child pack for camp? Our suggested packing list is located here:
What is NorthLand Bible Camp’s policy on behavioral problems? NOTE: Any camper disregarding NorthLand Bible Camp rules is subject to being sent home at camper expense, with no refund of fees. Any camper willfully destroying property will be financially responsible for damages and/or replacement costs.
What happens if my child is homesick? Staff members are well prepared to help your child overcome their case of the “lonelies” and make the most of their camp experience. Kids will often take their cue from your preparations for camp: keep things positive by reminding them about all the fun they’ll have at camp as well as why they wanted to attend in the first place. In our experience, an attempt to reassure a hesitant child with a promise (for example, “If you don’t like it, we’ll come get you”) sets kids up for thinking they may not like it and will want to leave, often leading to an unhappy and early departure. If your child does experience severe homesickness, you will be contacted by Camp staff to discuss the situation.
What if my child struggles with wetting the bed? Bed wetting is a common issue we encounter at camp. Our cabin leaders are well prepared to deal with the situation discreetly. Campers are encouraged to use the bathroom before bedtime. If this is a particular struggle for your child, we would recommend that your child brings an extra set of bedding as well as a garbage bag for soiled sheets. In the event of an accident, the second set of bedding will be used while the first set is being laundered.
Can I call my child on the phone? Can they call me? If you have a need to contact your child during their time at camp, please call the Camp Director, Paul Frey, at (608) 387-5199. NorthLand Bible Camp’s general policy is to discourage family contact during the week in order to promote the best possible experience for your child, free from distractions. A higher camp policy respects the wishes of a child’s parent(s). If you believe it is necessary to connect with your child, camp staff will have your child return your call at an arranged time. On-site visitors must check in at the front desk (at the back of the chapel) immediately upon arrival. In no case will a child be permitted to leave the site without first making proper arrangements with the Camp Director.
