FAQs

HOW MANY CHAPERONES PER STUDENTS


We will have 1 adult chaperone per 12 students. There will always be female chaperones for the girls and male chaperones for the boys.




HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO CHAPERONE


We require that all chaperones be at least 24 years of age. If you are under 25 years but too old to be a camper, please see the "interns" page.




ARE PARENTS ALLOWED TO CHAPERONE AT CAMP


Yes, parents are certainly allowed to attend camp as a chaperone. As a matter of fact, the majority of our chaperones are parents of campers. However, parents and guardians are subject to the same safety and security procedures as the rest of the staff and volunteers. To inquire about being a chaperone please email info@campelectric.com or sign up by filling out the chaperone application.




WHAT IS THE APPROVAL PROCESS


All instructors, chaperones, assistants and camp workers are required to complete a full disclosure application. (This includes a personal testimony of their faith.) They are also personally interviewed before they are invited to be a part of the Camp Electric team, and we call community and church references for each application we receive. In addition, background checks are run on all of our instructors, chaperones, interns, assistants, and camp workers.




WHAT IS THE ROLE OF A CHAPERONE


We consider being a chaperone a privilege as well as a responsibility. We hope that each chaperone will be there for the benefit of all the students, and not for their own personal benefit. Chaperones are responsible for the students at all times. We request that chaperones refrain from leaving the campus for any reason other than accompanying their group to hotel housing (if applicable). Chaperones are expected to know where each member of their group is at all times and to check in with them frequently throughout the day including, enforcing “lights out” each night. Chaperones will also be responsible for leading daily devotionals that involve praying with your students. The devotionals are printed and given to chaperones and students in the camp handbook. Chaperones will be asked to help out in other ways, too, during the day while students are in instructional time. Also, our camp is a tobacco free camp (this includes vaping) and chaperones are expected to abide by this policy as well.




IS THERE A COST TO CHAPERONE


Yes. The cost of being a chaperone covers all meals, lodging, and any materials chaperones receive at camp. Also, lodging is provided on Saturday night for chaperones and any campers they bring, so this cost helps cover that night of lodging as well. The chaperone fee is $300.




HOW DO I APPLY TO CHAPERONE


We have made the process very easy, just submit your application HERE. It is a thorough and time-consuming process, as we take the chaperone position very seriously and consider it an honor and a privilege.




INTERESTED IN BECOMING AN INTERN FOR CE


Interning is a great way to be involved with Camp Electric. (Ages 20 -24) Just as chaperones minister to the students of Camp Electric, interns minister to the staff. Interns at CE work alongside the CE Staff with office, backstage, planning, and organizational details. Interns are also required to complete a full-disclosure application and complete a background check. The interning application process is thorough, as we also take this job very seriously and regard interning as a privilege. The same fee associated with chaperoning is associated with interning, as we try to keep other camp costs as low as possible. To get started with the application click HERE.
