·       Rooming with best friends or siblings:  We place students in cabins 6th &7th mixed and 8th separate.  A line on the registration for is designated to list friends. Please do not call in or email suggestions. We do not have the admin power to accommodate these requests.

Will there be adult supervision and security?

·       Rock Youth volunteers and a few Indian Hills Camp staff. The Rock provides a camp nurse, worship bands, A.V team and a few High school interns. We are always looking for camp nurse support and help.

·       The Rock Junior High is the only group allowed on site. The camp is closed to all visitors.

·       The Rock has security patrolling the campus at all times. All visitors must check in at the office including parents. No one is allowed to visit campers unless they check in and are approved. Please abide by Indian hills camp and the Rock Church guidelines.  

·       The Rock Church and IHC is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Please label cloths, sleeping bags, cameras, etc. Students are responsible to carry and keep their own money.


How do I contact my child?

·       Some parents will want to contact their child at camp. You may write your child a letter and send it to Indian Hills Camp: attention to your Child’s name.

·       Students are not allowed to use their cell phones or the camp pay phone to call home.

·       In case of EMERGENCY, We will call the number listed on the registration.

What does the Bible teaching look like?

·       AMPD= A-awareness, M-mission, P-Purpose, and D-Do Something.  

·       Students will learn through: skits, group exercises, individual devotion time, quiet time, group discussions, teachings from Rock Pastors and youth leaders, worship, and prayer.

·       We will teach on Salvation and Baptism. Students will have an opportunity to make a public statement of their faith through Baptism at Camp on Thursday morning 10-11pm. We will take pictures and post them on our Facebook.


What happens in the case of Injuries and medical incidents?

·       Safety first is our plan when organizing games, competitions and activities.  

·       Some activities are physically demanding but students do not have to participate in these activities.  Activities that typically result in injuries include the BMX bike track and  injuries to the feet especially if students take their shoes off. We advise shoes worn at all times.

·       Our Camp Nurse will be on site to administer daily dosage medications. Students are gathered during meal times or before bed time by the camp nurse.

·       If a student needs to be taken to a Hospital, the nearest Hospital is Grossmont off the 8.

What if my student is Special Needs?

·       Safety is our greatest concern. If your child has special needs or requires a little TLC, please let our staff know so we can inform their cabin leader.

What will discipline and care look like?

·       We look for opportunities to discipline with Grace and Truth. Meaning, we take each situation into consideration of what’s going on with the Heart of the student and look to guide each person towards peace, forgiveness, conflict resolution and spiritual growth.

·       A Student may be asked to be picked by a parent if we determine that the safety of other students is a risk or a student has decided they are not willing to submit to the leadership of the Camp and or abide by our camp rules: “Be where they are suppose to be at all times”. We find this rule positively everything.   

·       God disciplines those He loves and so do we.  Let us know if your child might need a little more love, grace and attention. We want you to pick up your child Thursday at 2pm!

Will there be free time activities?

·       Free time occurs every afternoon for students to just hang out, talk with friends, try something new or relax in the shade.

·       AMPD offers the following free time activities: bmx bike track, skate area, disc golf, two swimming pools, huge jungle gym, zip lines, obstacle course, archery, live animal petting zoo, basketball and talking.

How can I pray for students at camp?

·       For students to get saved and start their relationship with Christ at camp.

·       For breakthroughs in student lives. We will be addressing sin and strongholds that students are struggling with. There is a spiritual battle for these youth and it’s on all week.

·       For finances. Many families are not able to pay for camp and are waiting on donations to help pay for camp. Total cost to execute camp is about $30,000.

·       For Leaders to be able to survive a week with students with love, patience, grace and wisdom. Shepherding students at camp is extremely exhausting. They need prayers.

·       For the Holy Spirit to fall upon every camper this weekend. 

·       For students to get follow up and to return and thrive in the Rock Youth ministry this fall.


Can I bring or donate anything?

·       We need parents to come up and supervise during free time. Our camp is low cost because it’s volunteer based. AMPD CAMP runs by volunteers. Please volunteer to keep it going.

·       You’ll need to give us your name, check in at the Indian hills office and one of our staff will send you to a spot to watch students between 2:30-5:30pm Monday, Tuesday and or Wednesday.

·       You can donate at
