Promoting a simple and joyful understanding of Yahshua's Royal Priesthood and what we are to be doing with our lives.
SUKKOT CAMPMEETING RULES AND SAFETY
BASIC FEAST RULES
We want the atmosphere of YHVH’s Feast of Sukkot to be inviting to all who come and conducive to their experience of it; therefore a few simple ground rules, because we all have a profound affect on each other (this is part of learning to “tabernacle together”):
PROTECT THE HIGH SHABBATS
All campers MUST be moved in and settled by sunset on Sunday (Oct. 15). No camper may show up AT or AFTER sunset on Sunday. Attendance at the first Sunday night Campfire is required. Also, no camper may break camp to travel home on Monday, Oct. 24 (The last High Shabbat of Sukkot). No exceptions. If you can not keep both Shabbats of this Feast on the Biblical Calendar (Aviv Barley, Sighted Moon) then this is not the Sukkot for you. :-)
As an incentive for coming early -- Early-birds get first dibbs on best campsites. No hookups.
VOLUNTEER LEADERSHIP POSITIONS
Because this is a Melchizedek Sukkot Campmeeting we are inviting all who have talents and desire to volunteer for a job assignment for the week in trade for a partial sponsorship. There is a list in the registration process you can choose from. References and a phone interview is required to gain the position. The Leadership Team’s first meeting is Sunday at 12 and is required of all volunteers.
NO RABBINICS OR MESSIANIC NON-SENSE TOLERATED
This is a Melchizedek Sukkot. If you don’t know what that means, please ask. Anything that is not in-line with this mind-set will be rejected. Anyone engaging in the spirit of Rabbinical Messianicism mind-set will be asked to leave without a refund.
NO SUKKOT PREPPERS
Sukkot is about preparing your hearts and lives to live with the Elohim. We will not be encouraging using this Sukkot to talk about, think about or discuss End-of-Time prepping in the material sense of the word.
As in any other mountain setting there are wild animals. Be aware and please take precaution when hiking anytime of the day. Most animals will clear out with all the racket we are going to be making this week, but just be warned if you are not used to the mountains.
At this campground facility there are no dogs allowed. The camp manager has dogs, but guests are not allowed to bring theirs. I'm so sorry! Not our decision.
Please know where your children are at all times. We don’t want them lost in the woods and we also don’t know intimately everyone who is attending. Please be cautious and don’t let your children just have full run of this place. Also, please don’t assume someone else will watch or take care of your kids. Your kids are your responsibility! Please keep them under control at all gatherings where it is appropriate for them to sit quietly. Feel free to play with them and run them all over the grounds throughout the day as necessary. They just must be adult supervised.
There is pretty good cell service at the camp (Verizon). There is no internet, but you could turn your phone into a hot spot. The camp manager has told us he has internet and guests who need internet for business throughout the week will be welcomed to use his.
SHOWERS AND TOILETS
There are bathhouses for the campers this year! Just keep them clean for others who come after you. And let the directors know if there is a problem you can't fix yourself.
Quiet time is 10:30 pm - 7:30 am.
RESPECT THE CAMP WE ARE USING
Please bring all needs, concerns etc. to Sukkot Directors: Isaac and Rebekah or Joe and Vicky Cruz. First seek YHVH for what you need and then come to us. :-)
VIDEOS AND PHOTOGRAPHS
Sukkot will be documented with pictures and video for use in future YouTube videos and Teshuvah Ministries promotional materials or books. Release forms must be signed by all campers regarding this.
CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT TIME
Check-in is Sunday, Oct. 15, 2016 from 3-5pm. Check-out is Tuesday 12pm, Oct. 8, 2016.
If anyone in your family gets sick, please quarantine them for the sake of others.
An announcement will be made regarding campfires.
NO FIREARMS, SMOKING, DRUGS, POLYGAMY OR ALCOHOL
Please respect all the guests by not packing, not lighting up, not taking drugs and not drinking. We may have wine at the Shabbat meal, but excessive drinking is not allowed by YHVH or us. :-)
A meal is a time for fellowship and getting to know each other in a light manner. For those who wish to engage in heavy discussions over dinner please move to another table. Please respect others beliefs and personal heart space and use a quiet place for deep and controversial, debate-oriented discussions. Thank you!
PROTECT YOUR HEART AND THE HEART OF OTHERS
Remember that love is the primary thing a Melchizedek priest will be known by. Love includes giving a relationship time to grow. Get to know each other. Find things that you have in common besides your spiritual and religious journey. Establish a friendship that can handle differences of opinions, different beliefs and mis-understandings. If we don’t start doing that in this movement we are going to lose every friend we begin to make!
ATTENDANCE: SHOW UP ON TIME TO MEETINGS
Teshuvah Ministries has a very strict policy about event attendance––Please show up on time to all meetings. We may start at a later time once the doors are closed, but campers are required to show up on time. It is disrespectful to the directors and presenters to show up late. If you are there on time then there is a better chance of the meeting starting on time. This is important for all involved. Thank you!
DAY VISITORS / FRIENDS AND FAMILY
If you have friends or family coming to join you for the day please have them register with the Camp Host ($25 / day).
LOST AND FOUND
A place for lost and found will be in the meeting hall.
At this point, you may have to go to town to do laundry. For special emergencies talk to Rebekah. Please don’t miss events for laundry. Just go a little dirty! :-)
Oct. 25, Tuesday we will need people to stay a little longer to help clean up the camp so that we get all our cleaning deposit back. Please let us know if you can stay to help us. Thanks!
Thank-you for helping us create a fun and meaningful Sukkot for all the hearts who have come! This is our second time hosting a Sukkot Campmeeting so thank-you for your gentle suggestions and your patience as we continue learning how to do this and grow our numbers! :-)
