We would love your students to be fully engaged in Youth Week and for that reason, we recommend you make every effort to keep students at “camp” for the entire week (reschedule appointments ahead of time, talk to coaches, etc). We feel that every time a student leaves the experience they lose the momentum of what God may be trying to do in the through them during this focused week. Our experience is that once students are at Youth Week, they often don’t want to leave! Please make every effort for your student to stay at camp.
We also realize that there are special circumstances. The safety of all of our students is a priority. For this reason, we ask that you let us know, in advance, who has permission to check your student in/out from the Hudsonville Fairgrounds and the time they will be gone. An ID will be required for all persons picking up students.
We are in different locations and keep students busy throughout the day, for this reason, we have set times when students may be checking in and out. Please see the student absence form for details. (One form is required for each day that your student is leaving). This form must be filled out and turned in at check-in on June 23.
