Uprising Camp Packing List 2018

Is there competition?

Yes! Find out which team we are on at the Parent/Student meeting this Wednesday, June 20 @ 6:00pm in the Youth Worship Room.

Ever since the inception of GENERATE, two sides have been locked in epic battle: The Pack vs. The Pride. This video outlines how you can lead your tribe to victory (and be the ones holding Festus in triumph).

Is there a theme?

Yes! The theme is UPRISING.

  • Day 1: Because there is no one like our God, we raise up in worship.
    • “Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe.” – Hebrews 12:28
  • Day 2: Because Jesus died for us, we are raised to new life.
    • “We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” – Romans 6:4
  • Day 3: Because God loves us greatly, we rise above the world and love at all costs.
    • “And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” – Ephesians 5:2
  • Day 4: Because we have the Good News, we go and tell, raising the banner of the Gospel.
    • “Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to Him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.” – Romans 7:4

Of course. We ask for there to only be one piece bathing suits at camp, or a dark colored t-shirt over a two piece. Avoid short shorts (including guys showing off the bro thighs), spaghetti strap shirts, or really anything that will be a distraction to those around you. We honor God with how we dress. Be cool, but don’t be a fool! If needed, help a brother or sister out.

What is “One More Thing?”

One More Thing are the nighttime activities on day 2 and day 3.

  • Day 2 – “The Get Down.” Our student talent show/camp-wide block party. Bring your best Hawaiian themed outfit and come prepared to have a great time!

  • Day 3 – “Camp-wide Dodge Ball Tournament. If you can dodge a wrench you can dodge anything!

Free time options will be announced each morning.  There will be sports tournaments, time to hang out with the cast, and time to get to know the band and camp pastor.

Where will we serve?

Students will serve with our North American Mission Board church planting partners in neighborhoods within driving distance from Wheaton. The high school will serve in Wicker Park with the Church of the Beloved.  They will host a 3-day VBS. Middle School Students will be doing some community service projects in the suburbs of Chicago. These projects will include: yard work, window washing, painting, and picking up trash at a local park.  Everything they do will serve to see the Gospel proclaimed and the mission of the church strengthened.  Boxed lunches will be served on-site.

What else?

  • First Light – On the third day of camp, a brief devotion and prayer time will be led by a GENERATE staff member. This time is optional, and the location of this time will be announced the day before.

  • GENERATE 5K – On the fourth day of camp, there will be a 5k around the campus of Wheaton. Participants can win points for their tribe.

What to Bring

Here is our list of recommended items for you to bring skiing or snowboarding in order to guarantee a fun first day on the slopes. If you are in need of anything on this list when you get here, most items are available in the Loft Shop.

  • Hat – if your head is warm the rest of you is likely to stay warm.
  • Waterproof Gloves/Mittens – mittens are warmest.
  • Goggles/Sunglasses – Goggles are strongly recommended on cold or snowy days for warmth and increased visibility.
  • Jacket/Parka (water resistant)
  • Synthetic or wool base layers for top & bottom – it’s better to be warm than cold, you can always shed layers. Synthetic materials help to wick moisture away from your skin. Once again, do not wear cotton as a base layer.
  • Snow/Water resistant pants – very important, your 1st day will acquaint your butt to the snow, keep it warm & dry.
  • Snow Bibs can be rented for $10
  • Warm, dry socks – No cotton. Wear only one pair of socks.
  • Sunscreen – SPF 15 or higher
  • Lip Balm
  • Snack, Fruit, Energy Bar
  • Trail Map – available for free in the lodge.
  • Extra Clothes, Shoes – to change into when you’re all done, in order to go out and celebrate your 1st day.

Tip: Avoid Cotton if possible. Opt for something synthetic or wool. You can also spray clothes with Scotch guard to help waterproof them.

What should I do with my stuff?

Remember, you are responsible for your possessions while you are visiting our resort.  Refrain from bringing any extra items into the lodge if at all possible, and use our $0.50 coin lockers (located throughout the facilities) to secure the items you must bring with you.  Skis and snowboards are prohibited inside the lodge and should be secured on the outdoor racks with personal equipment locks or dropped off at our Free Ski/Board Check located on the lower deck outside the Rental Shop.
