Sponsor Information

We request your sponsor to camper ratio is ONE sponsor for every FIVE campers. Sponsors should be at least 18 years of age and have a successful background check. The topic of sponsors is addressed at length in the church guide and the registration agreement.

Background Checks

CrossTimbers requires each church to perform a criminal background and sex offender check on all sponsors 18 years of age and older attending with their group. CrossTimbers requires all camp sponsors to have a current background check on file at their home church. CrossTimbers and the BGCO define a current background check as no more than 18 months old. Churches will need to present a completed and signed copy of the Background Check Statement of Compliance upon arrival at camp.

Bunkmail

Bunkmail is our form of camp mail,  because the camp week is so short and technology allows us to do some really cool things we encourage you to promote the use of bunkmail to parents and church members.  Instead of sending letters to kids at camp we have an email address set up for people to email campers.  All you need to do is put the campers first and last name along with the church they are attending camp with in the subject of the email and send it to crosstimbers@bgco.org.

Every child wants to get an encouraging letter from a relative or church member. Even our staff would like encouraging notes during the summer. The campers get excited and a glow comes off of their face when they receive Bunkmail. This is a great way for your church to support and encourage children that are coming to camp.

Camp Menu

Meals consist of breakfast, lunch and supper. Day one of camp will consist of two meals while the other days there will be three.

Dietary needs

If a child that is coming to camp has a dietary need, sponsors or parents need to contact the CrossTimbers program office before arriving at camp. The CrossTimbers kitchen staff can provide a special plate for that child. In some cases it would be safe for the parents to send the appropriate food for their child, food can be stored in the kitchen refrigerator and sponsors can monitor the provision of the meal. The CrossTimbers kitchen staff is not trained to prepare foods that support food allergies and cannot be responsible for making accurate decisions that would endanger a child’s health.
