I have previous experience with special needs. Do I have to attend the pre-camp training weekend?
Yes! Pre-camp training weekend also includes team building exercises as well as training specific to Special Friends Camp's policies and procedures so attendance is crucial for everyone.
How do I get to and from the campgrounds?
You are responsible for your own transportation to and from Special Friends Camp. Once you arrive on the campground, you will not be permitted to leave until the camp week has concluded and you have been dismissed. Many of our staff choose to carpool.
I know someone interested in attending camp as a camper. How do I get an application?
You can download a camper application by going to www.tnbaptisthomes.org.
I have submitted an application to be a counselor at Special Friends Camp. Now what?
You should have received an email saying that your application was submitted successfully. We will review it and then you will be contacted by the Staff Director for an interview. We will not begin interviews for new counselors until after April 1st, 2022. While we are already accepting new applications for counselors for Special Friends Camp 2022, you will not be contacted about the next steps until April. If you have any questions before then, please contact Jenni Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
