Frequently Asked Questions

What should I pack for my camper?

Camp Allendale provides a suggested packing list on their website. Click here to go to that page. Click and download the summer camp information sheet for details.

Can you make sure my child is with…?

At registration, you can include one cabinmate request. We use that information to place students into small groups. For more questions related to this, see the summer camp small groups and teams page and the summer camp cabinmates page.

What is a canteen card and do we need to purchase additional cards?

The camp registration fee includes one canteen card. This card acts as a punch card and is how campers “purchase” their snacks during the designated canteen times each day. One card will be more than enough money to purchase items at every snack opportunity. Additional cards can be purchased to help support the missionary for the week.
