  • All medication, for counselors or campers,  will need to be given to a camp nurse. Please bring meds in ORIGINAL packaging with clear directions.  The only exception is a counselor or student who is instructed by a physician to keep their personal inhaler.  See the prescription and over-the-counter drug policies.
  • Campers must be fever-free for at least 24 hours prior to the first day of camp.
  • We do not encourage students to call home throughout the week.  However, if parents make advance arrangements for a camper to call from a sponsor’s phone, we will honor that arrangement. All students are asked to leave cell phones at home, if cell phones come to camp we will collect them for the camp week.
  • Each church is responsible for their own transportation to camp.
  • If you would like to write to your camper please do so early. The mailing address is Nazarene Children’s Camp, Miracle Hills Ranch, 35556 W. 200th Ave, Bethany, MO 64424

Why: We believe that camp affords opportunities like no other. Getting away from the noise of daily schedules--getting with a group of friends to listen, learn, wonder, pray, think, laugh and grow with will make a forever impact! 

Emergency Contact: During camp week, in case of EMERGENCY, camp staff may be contacted at 913-333-9925. It may be necessary to leave a message for someone to return the call.

Counting the days!
