For Parents

What You Need To Know

Is your child planning a trip to Windy Gap? Or maybe they are already here... We want you to be comfortable at home while your child is away. In all the activities, your child's well-being is of utmost importance to us, so here is what you need to know...

Contacting Your Child
Due to Windy Gap's location in the mountains, cell phone coverage is inconsistent with most providers. Pay phones are located on the property. Messages can also be left on the Windy Gap general voicemail box. These messages are checked periodically throughout the week and weekend and will be forwarded to your child. If you have an emergency, please call our office to recieve the emergency cell phone number of the Windy Gap host on duty 828-645-7187.

 What To Bring
All bedding (sheets, towels, and blankets) are provided by Windy Gap.
  • Toiletries. Bring basic toiletries. However, if your child forgets something, most items can be purchased at the Windy Gap Store.
  • Proper Clothing. Warm clothing will be needed at most times of the year at Windy Gap. Closed-toed shoes are required from some activities. Also, don't let your child forget their bathing suit for the pool and hot tub, open year-round!
  • Medications. Our medical staff or the medical staff associated with your child's group, would be more than happy to assist your child in taking their needed medications. Please contact your child's trip leader about your child's medication regime.
  • Special Dietary Needs. Our Food Service Team is very willing to work with your child's dietary needs. Please contact your child's trip leader or Windy Gap ahead of time to communicate those needs.
  • Calling Card. Cellular service at Windy Gap  is not very predictable or dependable. There are pay phones located throughout the camp that will allow collect calls or the use of calling cards. Calling cards can also be purchased at the Windy Gap Store.
  • Spending Money. The Windy Gap Store, the Snack Bar, and Coffee Shop will probably be open some time during your child's stay at Windy Gap. Additional spending money will be needed for purchases.
  • Study Needs. Depending on your child's group, certain study materials such as a Bible, a notebook, and a pen or pencil may be needed. Contact your child's trip leader to find out.
  • Camera. Memories at Windy Gap  are unforgettable. Encourage your child to show YOU what that is all about with photographs!
