fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is this just for dads and kids or can moms do it too?
Although Good Dads has a focus on promoting father engagement with children, we also know the importance of mothers. In fact, both moms and dads make up the Good Dads staff. We have discovered that when moms are involved, dads will often stand back and “let them do it.” Our goal here is two-fold: 1) Enable and equip dads and kids to have a fun experience together; and 2) Allow mom to participate and co-lead, but not have the primary responsibility for Kamp Kwarun-Team activities. (We know moms already do a lot and have a lot on their plates in this unusual season.)
Can grandparents do Kamp Kwarun-Team with their grandchildren?
Grandparents may absolutely do Kamp Kwarun-Team with their grandchildren. Uncles, aunts, big brother or sisters – anyone parents feel comfortable having their child spend time with – may all form a team and register for Kamp Kwarun-Team. The only requirement is that there be at least one adult (i.e. someone 18-years-old or older) and one child between the ages of 5 and 14.
What if my little brother or sister wants to be a camper, but they’re younger than five years?
We understand. If your big brother or sister is doing something, you want to do it too. If you have a very young “camper,” just let us know and we’ll send an extra sticker book your way. Badges will be earned according to what the family chooses.
Do I have to do the Team Building badge?
All campers and their parent(s) need to complete the Team Building badge as part of the camp registration process. Team building helps you establish your identity as a team and set the stage for working together on future badges. At the very least, you need to choose a team name, put together a team flag with your symbols, and send us a photo. (This can be as simple as a drawing on an 8 ½” x 11” sheet of white paper. We’d love for you to do a team cheer or song, but we’d settle for the first two.
Do I have to do the first week of Kamp Kwarun-Team or may I start with a different week?
You may start Kamp Kwarun-Team with any week you like as long as you complete the minimal requirements for the Team Building badge first. Even if you are a team of two (parent and child), we still need your team name, a team symbol (preferably on a flag of some sort), and a team photo. Once you do that, you may begin with any badge you wish.
Do I have to complete all the badges for any given week to earn a badge, i.e. may I do just one badge?
Badges are awarded when the tasks associated with that badge are completed. If you want to do only one badge, that is perfectly acceptable. We know families are busy and may have other activities. Feel free to choose only the badges that interest you most. Of course, if you want to challenge yourself to learn something new, that’s great too.
Do I have to complete the badges in any particular order, e.g. may I go back to Week 1 or Week 2?
Once you complete the Team Building badge, you are free to complete any additional badges in any order you wish. In some cases, it may be easier to complete badges from a previous week first or complete two or three badges from the same week at the same time (since some have overlapping activities, but it’s totally up to you. Do what makes the most sense for you.
When can I find out what new badges are available to be earned?
New badges are released on Sunday at 12:01 a.m. Week 2 will be released on June 7, Week 3 or June 14, Week 4 on June 21, and so on. The final week will be released on July 5. Campers who sign up for all six weeks will have full access to all badge activities as soon as they are released.
How do I earn a badge, i.e. what information do I need to send the Kamp Kwarun-Team staff?
In order for you to receive a sticker, we need to see some photos of you working on that activity. When we receive those photos (email to Kamp@gooddads.com), we’ll put you down for a badge and get one in the mail to you as soon as possible.
Do I have to purchase a Kamp Kwarun-Team t-shirt?
You do not need to purchase a t-shirt, but you may want to buy them for your team. If you do, we’ve made them available in six different colors for adults and three colors for children.
What are the Weekly Challenges? Will there be prizes?
In addition to badges to be earned each week, we will also have weekly challenges, e.g. the Marshmallow Tower Challenge. These challenges must be completed no more than two weeks after they are posted in order to be eligible for a prize. (Of course, you may always compete for bragging rights.) Prizes will be awarded to a team with the best response to the week’s competition.
What Badges May be Earned?
In addition to the Team Building badge, there are 36 additional badges with six in each of the following categories:
- Arts & Crafts (color appreciation, texture, outdoor painting, etc.)
- Bible-based (combines familiar Bible stories with activities in nature)
- Fitness (physical fitness, water activities and survival skills)
- Foods (indoor and outdoor cooking activities)
- Music (fun songs, singing, homemade instruments)
- Nature (nature appreciation and observation, plant identification, etc.)
Why do you have a Bible-based badge?
Although Good Dads is not a faith-based organization, we are “faith friendly.” We know that many churches and faith communities traditionally offer Vacation Bible School, church camp, or a child-focused program during the summer. We want to make it easy for families who choose to do so, to use the Bible-based badges as an opportunity to share faith values at home and/or in their small group of families.
