It's almost camp time!

Life moves fast for all of us—especially for middle schoolers. It can be hard for students to find the space to process all that’s happening in and around them. Frequency is our weekend camp designed to help 7th and 8th graders tune in to what’s most important.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Transit camp if we didn’t also have a ton of fun planned! There will be plenty of wild games, outdoor activities, and opportunities to make lasting memories with their small group.

When:
September 27-29, 2024

Where:
Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center, Covington, GA
(Drop-off/pickup at Gwinnett Church)

Registration will open soon.

Packing List

When is drop-off (check-in) and pickup for the weekend?

Check-in is at Gwinnett Church on Friday, September 27, at 6:30 p.m., and pickup is at Gwinnett Church on Sunday, September 29, at 1:00 p.m.

Where is the camp held?

Camp is hosted at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center.

Will phones or smartwatches be allowed for this event?

In order to maximize your student’s overall camp experience and limit distractions, all cell phones and technology will be collected by leaders at check-in on Friday and returned on Sunday—or even better, leave them at home! You can contact your student’s small group leaders or a Transit staff member if you need to reach your student in the event of an emergency.

How will parents be contacted in case of an emergency?

Someone on our staff will call the phone number you provided us when you registered your student.

Will there be a medical professional at camp?

Yes. We will have two registered nurses at camp at all times. If your student needs to bring medication, you can leave it with a nurse at check-in to dispense at camp.

What if my student has a food allergy?

Please include allergy information on your student’s registration, and we will be happy to accommodate your student and provide alternative meal options as needed.

What if my student has a conflicting event or game?

Your student won’t regret prioritizing Frequency over an outside activity! If necessary, you can pick your student up early or drop them off late.

What’s the dress code?

Tops must have straps and be full-length. Shorts should be an appropriate length.

One-piece bathing suits for girls. Full-length, loose-fitting swim trunks for guys.

How do you determine the cost per student for your events?

Many factors play into this decision, and you may be surprised to learn that our events do not pay for themselves. A portion of our annual Transit budget supplements the event cost to help minimize what parents pay for their student to attend. Some cost factors include: the facility rental, transportation, meals, production, medical professionals, lifeguards, and much more. Additionally, since we ask so much of our small group leaders, when you pay for your student to attend one of our events, a portion of that money is used to cover the cost of their leader.

Is there financial assistance available?

Yes. We have scholarships available to families that need assistance. We never want a student to miss an event because of financial issues. You can apply here.

What if I need to cancel?

Please email [email protected] as soon as you know you need to cancel your student’s registration for the event.
