CAMPING FEES 2018>>>
  • $50/week

    or

     
  • $10/day

This will help us provide restroom and shower facilities as well as the limited electric hookups we've been able to provide to our campers in the past. These facilities are not guaranteed, but we provide them, and so we ask for your help with this. We will be collecting the fees when you arrive and handing out camping passes. Please be advised that there is limited electric hookups, and it's a first come-first serve basis on the electric, so please reserve your spot ASAP.  Since 7 Days only operates on love offerings, we must be good stewards of what God has entrusted to us and ask for anyone wishing to stay and camp to contribute for their use of the facilities we provide. In addition to your camping fee, we ask that each paid campsite brings the following donation for the restroom facilities:

  • 6 pack of toilet paper
  • 2 rolls of paper towels

KThe camping fees can be kept low as long as we have enough donations of paper goods. This is a community event; community supported and community run. All donations are used to keep this place available FOR community use.

Camping fees must be paid in advance at the 7 Days RegistrationTable. It will be open SUN. Sept 23rd AFTER  the evening processional. Regardless of your uncertainty now of how long you plan to camp, you must at least pay the $10 rate the first evening you stay. If you want to continue a day-to-day reservation, your $10 daily rate needs to be paid prior to that night's stay. Below you will need to read our camping guidelines that are outlined to ensure you can adhere to them before planning to camp on the grounds this year.

GENERAL CAMPING INFO: If you wish to camp this year, we want to remind everyone that it is primitive camping. We have limited space for tents, campers and RV's.  There are no water hookups available and we hope to have electric hookups again this year for your small fans/heaters. Plan also to bring lanterns for the evenings as there is limited lighting in the areas designated for camping. We ask that if you are planning to camp, that you contact us via the email below no later than FRIDAY Sept 21st for planning purposes. We are anticipating more campers this year than in years past, so please RSVP soon. Remember, everything is on a first come-first serve basis and everyone working at 7 Days is serving on a vounteer basis. We appreciate your understanding in advance if there are interruptions or changes to the accomodations once you arrive.

Please be aware that personal items such as toiletries and clothing are not permitted to be left in the restrooms. Use your campsites to store these items. On that note, we encourage you to bring a shower tote or caddy to carry back and forth from your campsite.  We will have a set of guidelines for everyone to sign once they arrive and we ask for all the campers and their guests to abide by those guidelines. You are welcome to bring your own food. However, food can be purchased in the Judah Cafe'.  We do not provide paper goods such as plates, napkins, cutlery. These are reserved for those purchasing from the Judah Cafe'. No grills or cookers are provided for your campsites, but you may bring your own as long as they are contained.
