FUGE Combo camp is an opportunity for you to experience the best of the camp programs that FUGE offers. Do you find yourself spending weeks of the summer taking different groups to camp? Why not combine these trips into one week? You can take your students to a camp where you can choose between any of our camp programs, including Centrifuge, MFuge, XFuge, and XFuge on Mission, depending on the location.
FUGE Camps are for students having completed 6th grade through college. Bible studies, track times, recreation, ministry sites and other programming elements are built around the developmental needs of students in these age groups. Children, primarily older children who have completed 4th or 5th grade, should not attend FUGE Camps for this reason. We recommend CentriKid, a camp ministry for children having completed 3rd through 6th grade. If you choose to bring your own children who are outside of our camper age range, they must remain in your supervision throughout the camp daily schedule.
MFuge will make the best possible use of large buses. While we welcome you to bring whatever source of transportation to camp that best suits the needs of your church, we must recognize that the use of large buses poses some significant logistical difficulties. If you bring a large bus to camp, we ask that you make it available each day for ministry projects. Please keep in mind that the driver is required to stay on ministry site and is not allowed to leave. In the event of an emergency the bus may be asked to help. You may also be asked to provide, rent if needed, additional transportation to stay on site in case of emergency. This is needed when the bus transports more than one group to ministry site. Depending on the size of your church group, the size of a ministry track group, and other possible scenarios, this additional transportation could include cars, mini-vans, or 12-passenger vans. Bringing a couple of additional personal vehicles to camp per large bus is suggested for churches utilizing large buses as their primary means of transportation. Be prepared—your local site director may also ask you to rent additional transportation to accommodate the differences between the number of students you bring to camp and the number we are able to accommodate for ministry site transportation due to your use of large buses.
Bottom line: We want to make this as easy as possible for you, but we need you to understand that some weeks may have scenarios which require the provision of additional transportation, whether through personal or rented vehicles.
The best way to ensure adequate transportation is for each group to provide enough seating to cover the number of participants the group is bringing. The vehicles best suiting the needs for use at MFuge are mini-vans, personal vehicles, 12 passenger vans, and mini buses. If 15 passenger vans are brought for use by churches, according to LifeWay Christian Resources and many state laws, MFuge will not load more than 11 passengers (including driver) on them.
Groups must provide adequate and appropriate transportation and drivers for students to get to ministry sites while attending MFuge.
