While Your Child is at Camp


A week can be a long time for your kids to be away from home. Here are some fun ways to stay connected while your child is here at camp!

Letters

Hello Mother, Hello Father!
There is nothing like a good old fashioned letter while at camp. You can send your camper a letter to the following address:

Your Camper’s Name
501 Mccaffery Rd
Bigfork, MT 59911

All mail will be delivered during lunch each day. Camp tradition says that any camper that receives 3 or more letters at a time gets to sing us a song! But don’t worry, no one has to sing alone! Please send your letter early enough in the week to ensure it arrives before your camper’s last day at camp. Because of the large quantity of camper mail received during the summer, any letters that arrive after a child has left camp will not be forwarded.

Email

You can also communicate with your camper during the week via email. Simply include your camper’s name in the subject line, and send your email to:

info@bigskybiblecamp.org

All camper emails will be printed and delivered during lunch. This is a great way to pass on any non-urgent messages to your camper.

Order a Gift Package

The only thing better than getting a letter at camp is getting a package! I know, I know, shipping is expensive. and its a long drive into camp. That’s okay! We would be happy to put together a package for your camper and deliver it! Orders can be made on your registration or you can place an order by calling our office at:

(406)837-4864

Packages

Have something special for your camper that can only come from you? Or did your camper forget their shampoo? Their sweatshirt? Their underware? I hope not, but if they did, you can drop a package by the office, or send it package to:

Your Camper’s Name
501 Mccaffery Rd
Bigfork, MT 59911

Camp tradition says that any camper receiving a package gets to sing us a song! But don’t worry, no one has to sing alone.

If you intend to make a quick visit to your camper when you drop off your package, please call ahead and plan to comply with our visitor policy.

Visit Your Camper

We do allow camper visits at Big Sky Bible Camp. For some children, seeing a loved one can help them get through the week away from home, but for others it can be a big distraction or cause severe homesickness. Therefore, we ask that you carefully consider whether a visit will help or hinder your campers experience at camp. If you do decide to make a visit, we simply ask that you follow a few simple steps and guidelines for the safety and well being of all of our campers.

  1. Call ahead to schedule your visit. All visitations must take place between 12pm and 4pm. This is the most flexible part of your camper’s schedule, and ensures that a staff member will be available to meet you and bring your camper to the office.
  2. When you arrive, check in at the camp office. Any visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
  3. A camp counselor will be informed of the visit and will bring your camper to the office for the visit.
  4. Because we cannot complete background checks on every visitor, visitors must stay at the office location for the duration of the visit. This also helps avoid increased homesickness, which is oftentimes made worse when a camper sees another parent visit.

Call Your Camper

Although cell phones are not allowed at camp, you can get in touch with your camper by calling the camp office. We can either pass on a message to them, or arrange a time for them to come to the office and give you a call.
