Camp Meeting

Camp Regulations

Cherry Run Camp Meeting seeks to create an environment and community with a focus on seeking God and intentionally creating space and opportunity to hear His voice. This depends on an effort by all community members, and we believe that the following rules and regulations are critical in order to maintain this atmoshpere.

  1. Cell Phone Policy:

    At youth camp, we want to allow God to get our attention, and that often means making sacrifices so that we can clearly hear His voice in order for us to remain engaged with others and with God. We ask that all leave their phones at home or that they turn their phones over to the Youth Director when they arrive at camp. The camp phone can be used with the direction of the Youth Director for emergency calls.

    Adults and Counselors are greatly encouraged to be discrete in using their phones on the grounds. Parents can call the camp (814-473-3470) and leave a message if there is no one by the phone to take the call.

  2. Belongings

    It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to verify the contents of their camper's belongings and ensure that they do not contain contraband items or illegal substances.

  3. Respect shall be shown toward those in worship services. They shall not be disturbed by talking or whispering, making unnec- essary noise, or cars driving nearby.

  4. The use of tobacco, alcoholic beverages, card playing, gam- bling and profanity is prohibited.

  5. Pets are not allowed on the grounds.

  6. CD players, radios, cell phones and mp3 players are not permit- ted on the grounds. Personal audio and visual equipment may be used for instrumental purposes and the talent show only.

  7. Keys to all youths’ cars are to be checked in to the Security Officer.
