Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is scholarship money available?
Yes. We have never turned a camper away because of cost. You can request a full or partial scholarship on our registration form.
Q: What kind of supervision will my camper receive?
Campers are divided into cabins of 5 or 6 for the week. Each cabin is led by two enthusiastic, qualified, and trained high school counselors. All activities and camp programs are led by adult staff, making our staff to camper ratio close to 2:1
Q: Where is Camp Olivet located?
Camp Olivet is located in Springville, IN, about 25 minutes southwest of Bloomington. We will bus campers from Evangelical Community Church on the first day and return them there on the last day.
Q: Who runs camp, and what do you believe?
Camp Olivet is operated by Evangelical Community Church in Bloomington, IN. You can read ECC’s Statement of Faith here.
Q: My child is not a Christian. Will he/she feel awkward?
We hope not. We have many campers each year from outside the church environment. We will be talking about Jesus and what the Christian faith is all about. We will not coerce your child to believe something they do not believe, nor will they be ostracized. We think your camper, as thousands of campers have in the past, will enjoy their experience at ECC Camps regardless of their faith.
