  • Why HoneyRock | Wheaton
    the camp experience the focus is on exploration of what it means to know God through nature to develop new friendships and to try new things As a child progresses attention is given to learning new skills both physical kayaking archery riflery etc and spiritual skills such as inductive Bible study and applying God s word to life situations Finally our goal is to develop individuals who having recognized the gifts they ve been given and developed are ready to give back to others and to God in the form of servant leadership HoneyRock is a Safe Place for Kids We live in a world that continually perpetuates fear and concern for the safety of our children especially when they are far from home We at HoneyRock and Wheaton College recognize the realities of our current world and have taken extreme steps well beyond camping industry norms to ensure that your child will not only be safe but have a life changing life enhancing experience We believe that the camper cabin leader relationship is where the most meaningful impact will take place As a result it is our desire to have the absolute best staff working with the campers of HoneyRock The vast majority of our staff come from Wheaton College which means that they have already been screened for admission from thousands of applicants and have been chosen based on character leadership intelligence potential and relationship with the Lord We take this screening even further by requiring all staff and students of HoneyRock to complete a rigorous application submit 3 written personal references go through one or two interviews with a permanent staff member and pass a national criminal background check Because most of our staff and students are known at the College we also submit our applicant list to the Student Development office of Wheaton College for an additional screen Any concerns are immediately addressed with the potential staff member Once staff members have successfully completed the application process and are hired they participate in one of the most intensive training programs in the country Training for counseling staff begins in January February with a weekend retreat at HoneyRock This is followed by monthly large group meetings on campus and weekly smaller group meetings and prayer times throughout the semester Our main areas of focus during this time and continuing throughout the HoneyRock experience are personal character and walk with the Lord because we believe that strength in these areas translates into the most significant impact in the lives of campers This spring training process also allows us to get to know the students individually and better prepare them for ministry Upon arrival at HoneyRock in May our staff complete 4 5 weeks of additional training led by Wheaton College professors in the Theology Psychology and Christian Education departments Topics covered during training include the following Bible study and teaching development and specific needs of youth camp and wilderness skills and first aid and CPR We have extensive
