FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO STUDENTS REGISTER?
This will now be done by the youth pastor/leader, so students will now register through their youth ministry and not the camp.
CAN STUDENTS STILL ATTEND CALIBRATE IF THEY DON'T ATTEND A PAOC CHURCH OR HAVE A YOUTH PASTOR?
Of course! Everyone is welcome to attend Calibrate. If a student finds themselves in this situation please contact Jeremy and Ashley and we will do our best to direct them to the closest local church or one they have a relationship with to register with that group.
HOW DOES A YOUTH PASTOR REGISTER A GROUP?
Similar to our other EOD Youth Channel events, once the youth pastor/leader has their registration list, they will then go online to our district website and register their group along with their leaders.
WHEN IS CALIBRATE?
Calibrate Jr High: August 19-21, 2022
WHAT DOES THE SCHEDULE LOOK LIKE?
The length of camp has been shortened but students will still experience many of the same activities. Students will participate in encounters, group devotions, sports, late night and more. Some of the activities will happen in youth ministry groups but other components will be in mixed team with campers from other churches.
WHY IS THE SCHEDULE SHORTER?
Due to the impact of Covid-19 we believe a weekend model is more attainable during this season of uncertainty. We also believe the weekend model creates more opportunities for youth ministry leaders to get time off from work to invest in students.
HOW MUCH DOES CALIBRATE COST?
Youth Pastors will set the final registration cost for their students/leaders which should include the registration fee, accommodations and transportation.
