Below there is a list of what to bring and what NOT to bring to ENCOUNTER, as well as the CYC Policy and CYC Guidelines.


ACCIDENT INSURANCE – Campers are covered by a limited accident policy while at camp. This does not cover any pre-existing illness or illness incurred while here. It is strictly an accident policy. This is a secondary policy; it will pay only after your insurance has been filed.

ADMISSION POLICY – Crusader Youth Camp is open to all who are willing to maintain the camp’s Christian standard. We do not discriminate against any person regardless of race, color, or national origin.

TELEPHONE CALLS – The Camp phone number is 910-891-4236. A seasonal phone is installed on the camp site and is heavily used. In the event of an emergency, campers will be allowed (with a staff member present) to use the phone to call home. Parents needing to contact their camper may call and leave a message with a staff member and we will have the camper return the call at a convenient time.  CELL PHONES – CYC prefers that parents not leave a cell phone with the camper. However, if you do, the following policy applies. Cell phones are for camper/parent communication only and may be used with permission, under the supervision of a staff member if a need arises. At all other times the phones should be turned off and put away. Parents should call the camp phone to contact their camper and not the camper’s cell phone. Campers are not to use their phones to communicate with other campers or any person off campus except their parents unless approved by and supervised by a staff member.CYC is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged phones.

TUITION, DISCOUNTS & REFUNDS – The total remaining balance of your tuition is due at registration on the day the retreat begins. For accurate record keeping, an application MUST be on file for every camper. A refund of any unused portion of your tuition, less registration fees, will be given in the event a camper has to leave the camp because of injury, or a personal emergency which in the opinion of the director is beyond the camper or parent’s control. No refund will be given when the camper leaves camp because of homesickness, discipline, family vacation, etc. No discount will be given for late arrivals.

VISITORS – CYC maintains a very active schedule. Therefore, visitors are discouraged. When a visitor does come on campus, he/she must immediately check in with the Camp Manager to receive permission to be on campus. All visitors must obey all camp rules and leave before lights out. A $5.00 donation for each visitor meal would be appreciated. Note: Food must not be brought on campus by visitors.

DO NOT BRING – Radios, ipods, MP3s, video games (or other electronic devices), matches, lighters, or any form of tobacco, weapons, alcohol, drugs or medications (except as noted on the application), or questionable reading material. (CYC is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items.)

WHAT TO BRING – Bed linens, pillow, blanket, bath linens, personal hygiene items, pajamas, casual clothing (see dress code), Bible, flashlight, ball glove, umbrella, (Laundry service is not available). THERE IS NO NEED TO BRING SPENDING MONEY.

LOCATION – Crusader Youth Camp is located two miles south of Dunn at exit 71. Leave I-95 and travel east approximately 1/4 mile. Turn left onto Bud Hawkins Road; the camp entrance is on the right. For driving directions from your address, click here.

ARRIVAL – Registration begins at 5:30pm on Friday. Camp closes at 12pm on Sunday. Please be sure someone is there to pick up your camper on time. Lunch will not be served.



All guidelines are necessary to assure a proper flow within this Christian community. Any exception to these guidelines or additional guidelines deemed necessary becomes effective upon announcement by the camp Director. The general position of the administration is that we expect everyone to live up to the Christian standard of behavior. Specific guidelines are as follows:

1. Camp Area – Camp boundaries will be explained further in the orientation session. Once a camper arrives on campus, he/she is not permitted to leave without the director’s permission. Vehicles driven to camp must be parked in the designated area, locked, and not returned to until the retreat ends.

2. Social Contact – CYC is a great place to meet new friends.  However, we request that there be no physical contact between members of the opposite sex. Fighting and bullying is not acceptable behavior at CYC.

3. Meals – Remember table etiquette at all times. When you finish your meal, clean your area and put all trash in the proper place. No food is to be taken out of the dining hall. Everyone is required to attend all meals.

4. Dress Code – Camper should note that this is a church camp and the dress code is conservative.  We permit pants and/or knee length shorts for boys and girls.  Clothing above the knees will not be permitted.  We do not permit going without shirts, wearing halters, tank tops, or garments that leave the midriff or cleavage exposed, including see-through garments.  Clothing with offensive imprints is not allowed. Shoes must be worn at all times. At no time should you be seen outside the cabin without clothes in keeping with this policy.

5. Everyone must:

a. Respect and cooperate with all staff members and campers.
b. Participate in the camp schedule, giving particular attention to being on time for each activity. A daily schedule will be furnished upon registration.
c. Do your fair share in keeping the grounds, room and equipment clean, in place, and workable at all times.
