Yes! We do provide transportation. You will need to fly into the Springfield/Branson airport. The cost for airport pick up is $50 each way ($100 total). Pick up will be between 3:00 PM and 3:30 PM on opening day and drop off will be between 11:00 AM and 12:30 PM on closing day. You must be at least 18yrs old or have signed consent from a parent. You must send us your flight itinerary with the term you are attending, your name in the subject line, and contact number at least 20 days before you arrive.
We would still love for you to come serve at Camp Barnabas. The missionaries arrive at 4 p.m. on Saturday and the campers arrive at 4 p.m. on Sunday. During those 24 hours, we do a full training to get you ready to serve the campers well. We would encourage you to spend time with people with special needs before you get to camp, though!
YES!! Please do! You are welcome and invited to serve more than one term.
*If you stay in between terms you must be 18 or over. You will be responsible for your own personal food, transportation, and entertainment as our staff will be on break. You will be expected to follow the camp rules even during the break. We will have a place for you to sleep and people will be around for emergencies.
When you sign up to serve at camp we are counting on you to be there. Not just us though, our staff, our camper families, and our campers count on people to be there each week. Please do not take your commitment lightly.
We recognize that emergencies happen, and we do have a cancellation policy.
The cancellation policy for individuals can be found in the acceptance letter and the cancellation policy for groups can be found in the Group Application Packet. The $55.00 registration fee is non-refundable and the fee for dropping goes up as we get closer to camp.
A core policy at camp, for the safety of our campers, missionaries, and staff is that you can never be alone with your camper. There will be a third person with you- always! The majority of the time, you will be with your whole cabin.
As camp gets closer we will send out a Barnabas Bound Packet with a packing list, sample schedule, the parties for that week, how to get mail at camp, and more details about your week of serving. The parties change each year, but here is a link to the basic packing list to give you an idea of what to bring.
