Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register?

Go to  Click on Register for Camp.  Find your camp’s location then click on your church name and enter the information asked for on the registration page.

Registration is started with paying the $150 non-refundable/non-transferable deposit or made complete with a full payment.  If you pay the deposit, you will have one more chance to pay the balance.  Payment in full is due 2 weeks before camp or there will be a $20 late fee added.

Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation email from NTS Camp.  According to the camp you will be attending, there could be a medical form or college waiver that you will need to print off, fill out and turn in to your church.  Your student cannot attend camp without these important papers.  If we find at camp that they are not filled out completely and signed, your student may not be able to stay at camp.

Does my child have to be part of a church to attend NTS Camp?

Yes.  NTS Camp is structured for church youth groups, not individual students; so your student would need to come to camp with a church that is attending NTS Camp.

Is online registration my only option?

Yes.  NTS Camp registration is only offered online.

Do I have to use a credit card?

Online registration accepts credit cards or debit cards.

Is the online payment process secure?

Absolutely.  NTS Camp uses a secure online credit card processor called Stripe which makes use of industry-standard security practices. NTS Camp does not store or transmit any of your secure information. All transactions are handled directly with the payment processing vendor.

How much is camp?

Registration for NTS Camp is $332.  Later Registration after May 5 is $352.  Last Minute Registration 2 weeks before camp is $377.

What is the processing fee?

The processing fee is what it costs for Stripe to take your payment.  This cost strictly goes to them and not to NTS Camp.

How do I know how much I owe?

Your confirmation email will have a link that will show you how much you still owe.  Otherwise, you can go to and click on Pay.  Make sure you enter the same parent email that you registered your child with on the NTS Camp registration page.

What if I did not receive a confirmation email?

If you have looked in your junk mail and do not find a confirmation email, please contact your local church for confirmation of registration or contact [email protected].

My child is doing fundraisers at church, how is that money applied?

Your church has been given instructions on how to apply fundraising money to a student’s account.  They will be able to make sure the money earned through church fundraisers is applied to your student’s account.

How can I pay on my child’s account if it is created as a scholarship?

The only type of scholarship NTS Camp offers is a full scholarship. This means the church is paying completely for a student and only the church can make payments on the account. The system will not accept any outside payment.

If my child changes their mind about camp, can we get a refund?

The deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable.  This is stated before you are asked to make your payment.  Anything paid above that is refundable.

How long can I register before camp?

As long as there is room, registration is open until the day before camp, however, we ask that you check with your church to assure there is transportation for your child to get to camp if it is close to camp.

There are financial benefits to paying earlier as you will see as you register.

Can my child come to camp for part of the week?

NTS Camp believes your student will benefit best from experiencing camp in its entirety so no, we do not accept part-time campers and do not offer part-time prices.

Can my child leave camp for a few hours for an appointment?

Please do not schedule any appointments during the week of camp for your student.  If it is necessary that they leave for an appointment, your pastor, church, and NTS Camp must be notified but your student will not be able to come back to camp that week.  So please plan on your student being at camp for the entire week.

What should my child pack for camp?

After your registration is complete, you will be sent a confirmation email.  This email will contain a packing list and a college waiver, if the site you are attending requires one.  At the bottom of the packing list is the list of rules and consequences for camp that we ask you to read over with your child.

What if I have a specific question about the college venue NTS Camp is held at?

NTS Camp handles all questions about the week of camp including things about the venue. Please do not contact the college with questions as we have answers to things pertaining to our time there.

What if my child has food allergies?

Our college venue cafeterias are set up to accommodate allergies. Please have your child go to the cafeteria staff with their adult leader at the first meal to get instructions for safe options.

What if I have questions?

If you have questions about online registration, please email [email protected].  If you have general questions about camp and transportation, please contact your church.
