Frequently Asked Questions

Is Fall Retreat Happening this year?

Yes! We have been working hard to creatively plan this year’s retreat so that we are still able to make it happen. Some things will look different than previous years, but we will still have a fun, God-filled week!

If the retreat is cancelled, will we get refunded?

Yes. In the event that Trout Lake Camp or Friendship Church is required to cancel the retreat, we will issue full refunds to everyone who has registered.

If my student is unable to attend retreat at the last minute, will I get a refund?

If your student is unable to attend retreat because either of these three are true:

If any of these are true please contact Gen Johnson at 952-567-6462 and we will issue a refund of your retreat registration fee.

What COVID policies will be followed at camp?

Here are some of the policies Trout Lake Camp has put in place for Fall Youth Camps:

Will students be required to wear masks?

There will be various locations and times during the day where students will be required to wear masks.

The good news is that most of our time is spent outdoors! Students are not expected to wear masks while outside or in their cabins.

What will transportation look like this year?

We are still figuring out exactly what transportation looks like for this year. We will keep everyone updated as we learn more and have more concrete information.

How will students be grouped in cabins?

Due to COVID restrictions that Trout is required to follow, we are only able to put a maximum of 10 people in a cabin (this included students and their leaders). We will do our best to keep d-groups together! However, if a group has more than 8 students, we will have to split their group into multiple cabins. If this is the case, we will try our best to keep one leader with each half of the group so that there is some familiarity for the students!

What happens if my student gets sick at camp?

Being at camp for 5 days – getting little sleep, being active all day, and not staying hydrated – can take its toll on the body regardless of COVID! Many students and leaders end up with sore throats, cough, or stuffy nose coming off of retreat on a normal year. Unfortunately, COVID symptoms look a lot like the common cold in a lot of ways! Because of COVID, we will be taking extra measures this year if a student or leader exhibits any symptoms that may be COVID related.

Per Trout guidelines, here are the procedures we will be following if someone shows COVID like symptoms:

Please do not bring your students to retreat if any of the following are true at the time of departure:

If any of these are true at the time of departure for retreat, we ask that you not participate in this event.

Upon arrival at the church on October 14, your student will have their temperature taken and you will be asked to sign a waiver stating that they fit the aforementioned COVID guidelines. This is a Trout Lake Camp specific guideline that we are required to follow in order to bring our group to camp.
