Frequently Asked Questions

Who may attend Leadership Camp?
Youth who are entering fifth grade or higher and have earned an Excellence, Timothy, Meritorious or Citation Award or completed two years of Journey 24-7 are eligible for camp. Junior High campers must be at least 9 years old and High School campers must be at least 13 years old by the first day of camp. Returning campers must complete one additional handbook/manual in the current handbook progression (3rd - 6th Grade -  T&T Book; Junior High - Trek Book; High School - Current Main Bible Study, required Bible Reading, required service and one elective manual). All work must be completed before camp begins. Youth may also attend if they have completed only one year of Awana. They must have their pastor's approval to attend camp.

When & where is it held?
2014 Dixieland Leadership Camp is June 14-20, 2014 at Fort Bluff Camp in
Dayton , Tennessee .

Junior High = $280.00. High School = $325.00. The High School campers will be staying in the lodge which costs DLCI $40.00 more per camper. A non refundable $50.00 deposit is required with the application. Ballance must be paid before camp starts. Campers who are not paid in full by June 1st will be put on standby.

What are the counselors like?
Our counselors all serve as leaders in their local churches. They have experience in Awana ministry and are carefully selected & screened.
The majority are parents giving up a week of vacation to minister to our “Cream of the Crop” kids. They all do it because they love kids!

Who can be a Counselor?
An Awana leader currently serving in the Awana program in your church, approved by your Pastor, Commander, and by the DLCI Board of Directors. All applications must be made through DLCI. If you are interested in being a counselor at our camp, please contact DCLI who will explain the process to you.

We send our kids to our church camp.
That’s great! We believe all kids should go to church camp. Life changing decisions are made at these camps. Dixieland Leadership Camp is
not meant to compete with church camp. It is a special privilege and a discipleship ministry for the “Cream of the Crop” kids. There’s something very special about being that caliber, and spending a whole week with those kind of kids! It’s intense spiritual training, and intense fun!

How do we register?
Every clubber who wants to attend leadership camp must submit an application to DCLI. The form requires input from the parents and from
their Awana club director or commander. This year's form has a much longer parental release section. Once ALL parts of the form have been completed, signed, and notarized, it can be mailed (U.S. Mail) to the camp registrar at: Dixieland
Camp Registrar , 4212 Old Washington Hwy , Dayton , TN 37321 . Remember to register early! All registrations are accepted on a first come first paid basis. Apply early to save your space.
