Alpha sessions will be filled with campers who are entering 10th-12th grades (2022-2023 school year). Due to the nature of this program, we are unable to make any exceptions to this policy.
Campers who are in 10th-12th grade have the option to attend a session of Alpha or Senior High week. Finding the right camp fit for your camper is important, especially for those campers in between programs.
To help, start by asking yourself a few questions about your camper.
- Has your camper attended camp at Covenant Harbor before?
- Does your camper want to spend much of their day serving and working in different areas of camp such as maintenance, kitchen, and housekeeping?
- Is your camper seeking an intentional, discipleship based spiritual community?
- Does your camper want to learn more about what it is like to serve on summer staff at Covenant Harbor?
If you answered yes to some of these questions, Alpha might be the right fit!
You know your camper best, so we encourage you to trust what you feel would be most beneficial for your camper. If you have any questions or concerns about which program is best for your camper, please give us a call at 262-248-3600.
Arrival and Departure Information
Arrival and Departure Information
For reasons of safety and security, specific information regarding arrival and departure is sent directly via email to registered campers only. Please call our office with any questions. Our staff does not assume responsibility for campers until the conclusion of check-in.
Upon arrival to check-in, our staff will greet you at your car and will guide you through our check-in process.
Late arrival or early pick-up is not recommended and should be considered only in extreme circumstances. If you must arrive late for any reason please call our office in advance so we may prepare for your arrival. Early pick-up can be arranged at check-in. We will not allow a camper to be picked up and dropped off more than once during the camp day because of the negative experience that it has on your camper and other campers. If you are looking to pick up your camper on the last day of camp, this must happen before 12pm.
A variety of routes make Covenant Harbor accessible from any surrounding area. Our address is 1724 W Main St., Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. See our Map and Directions page for detailed arrival instructions.
What to Bring
Campers should have a range of clothes for any weather. Clothing should allow campers to be active and work in different environments like outside, by the water, and inside the kitchen. Include closed-toe shoes, long shorts or pants, and shirts with sleeves for work projects and activities. Water shoes are handy for swimming.
What NOT to Bring:
Do not bring personal sports equipment, firearms, weapons of any kind, fireworks, tobacco, alcohol or drugs.
*Please note that peanuts/tree-nuts or peanut/tree-nut products are not allowed.
In general, we want camp to be a cell phone free environment so campers can fully enjoy their time at camp. Alpha is the only program that is allowed LIMITED cell phone usage, due to the program’s extended length. In general, Alpha campers will not have their cell phones with them (not in their cabins or on their person) during the week besides specific times that are directed by the Alpha leadership staff. Communication via cell phone with your Alpha camper will be limited. Please anticipate infrequent contact. If an Alpha camper needs to be reached in case of emergency, the best way to reach them is through the main office and our staff will have them call back as soon as possible.
Cell phone usage is a privilege for Alpha campers that will be revoked in the event of misuse.
- Misuse #1: Verbal Warning
- Misuse #2: Turn-in device for the remainder of session OR permanent removal from the Program
**Smart Watches and iWatches are prohibited at Covenant Harbor and do not qualify as “limited usage”. The above policy for misuse also pertains to smartwatches and other cellular/Wi-Fi accessible devices.
Alpha campers will want to bring money with them to camp for use at the camp store and for special events. There will be several opportunities for campers to go into town and on special off site “excursions.” The camp store sells candy, snacks, soda, water and Gatorade ranging from $.25 to $2.00. They can also purchase camp merchandise ranging from $.25 to $45.00 from the store.
