When you arrive at Sunbury

  • Go straight to the Camp Office to introduce yourself
  • Sign the Indemnity Form and go over the Sunbury Camp Rules and other forms with the Camp Host. This is an important part of starting your camp well
  • Either you or your Leader #3 hands out room keys - No keys may be taken before the Camp Leader signs forms (#2)
  • Unused room keys should remain on the board in the Sitting Room


Please plan your camp so that no one goes through the gate between 11pm and 6am This allows the missionaries living at Sunbury time to sleep without disturbance. Have your speakers stay at the camp with you so they do not to drive out the gate during the night. We realize there may be unusual circumstances - please speak with Sunbury staff BEFORE you come to Sunbury.

All our workers (Grounds Crew and Housekeeping Staff) get Sunbury ready for camps but not all workers are here at Sunbury during camps. Since ALL our workers help prepare Sunbury, we want to pass food out more equitably between our workers

Planning for a camp

Begin planning 6 months before your camp weekend. You do not have to do everything yourself. Find others who will help plan and take charge of one of the following areas.

Leader 1 ___________________________

Food - find someone who will be in charge of the cooks, menu planning, buying the food, and transporting the food to Sunbury.

Leader 2 ___________________________

Registration - as people sign up for your camp, this leader will give them information they need about your camp at Sunbury, will keep track of payments, etc. As campers pay ahead, this leader will give the names to Leader #3 to assign them a room.

When you make the payment at Sunbury Camp, this leader will go with you to make the payment with the list of campers created by Leader #3.

Leader 3 ___________________________

Camper Rooms - as campers sign up for your camp, have a leader take all the names of the campers who are coming and put them on the Room Register Form. When campers arrive at Sunbury, check their name off the Room Assignment Form, and let them know their room number and Dorm Building. When your camp is over, all campers must give their room key to this leader to hand in to Sunbury.

Help your campers by letting them have time to save up for the camp and paying small amounts through the year for their camp fees. Give them the date of the final deadline that all money must be in. Your camp fees should include the Sunbury fee PLUS the cost of the food per person. If you have other costs, you need to also add that to your camp fee.

  • Sunbury fees for each person
  • Total food divided by number of campers
  • Other expenses divided by number of campers
    Add 1, 2, 3, together - that will be the camp fee for each camper

Two Months before Camp

  • The menu for all your meals should be done
  • The shopping list for all your meals should be complete. Please remember to add breakfast and lunch costs for our housekeeping ladies during your camp. Call Sunbury if you want to know how many ladies to plan for - it depends on the number of campers
  • Have all your plans for the conference hall meetings finished

One Month before Camp

  • You should have your list of campers ready - keep adding last minute campers
  • Know who will be shopping for the food - give them the shopping list
  • The person in charge of the cooks should have a list of cooks they have asked to help. Cooks should stay at Sunbury during camp

Two Weeks before Camp

  • The Room Register Form should be complete with camper names
  • All campers should have paid their fees
  • You should know who ALL your camp leaders are and what they will be doing during camp
  • Speakers/pastor should be assigned a VIP room
  • CONTACT Sunbury Camp and tell them the following:
    - Approximate number of campers you are planning for
    - Time YOU will arrive at Sunbury - YOU must arrive before the campers or with the campers
       You MUST meet with the Sunbury Host as soon as you arrive
    - Time the FOOD will arrive at Sunbury
