Groups will be staying in Samford University dorm rooms (2 per room), so be as accurate as possible in registering your group.
Deposits are non-refundable for cancellations but can be transferred to another student in your group until June 10th. We regret that we cannot refund or transfer your payment after June 10th.
Your group is responsible for damages to any facilities including but not limited to the rooms your group occupies. This includes the loss of keys. If a key is lost your church will be charged the cost of what Samford University charges us.
Super Summer takes the special needs of students and adults very seriously. Meeting your needs and setting up your group for a great week of camp is important to us. If one of your students or adult chaperones has a special need that should be handled before camp starts, please contact Denis Tanner at 205-531-7361 or [email protected] and share that with him so we can do our best to accommodate you!
Rooms should be completely cleaned, and trash taken to the dumpster on the last day. We want to be respectful and leave Samford better than we found it! Make sure that all personal items have been removed from dorm rooms. Charges apply if violated.
NOTE: We suggest that an adult or team leader check the rooms before students turn in their keys. This minimizes the number of items left and makes things run smoother.
The rule of thumb is if you’re not sure if you should wear it then go with something else. We are Christ’s ambassadors and strive to present ourselves as such!

Super Summer is meant to be a leadership camp. Due to the amount of in-class time and the depth of the material, it is generally for those who are more spiritually and mentally mature. For that reason, there are some suggested requirements to help you determine what students should come to Super Summer.
We suggest that each student:
- Share the gospel with at least one person
- Be faithfully involved in their church
- Share their testimony with the youth group
- Actively study the bible and pray (journaling is a great way to do this)
- Memorize Scripture
- Overall, demonstrate leadership qualities and be a growing Christian
NOTE: These are simply suggestions as we are aware that each group and student is different. It is up to you as their youth pastor to hold them accountable and choose who should and should not be at this camp.
Attached is a PDF version of our suggested requirements along with suggested scripture memorization for each year.
TL stands for Team Leader. A Team Leader is a college age person who leads a small group of around 8 students throughout the week. It is a TL’s job to lead small group discussion, get to know their group on a deeper level, encourage and disciple students throughout the week and so much more!
In addition to leading small group discussion during the day, small group leaders will be responsible for having “hall time” with students staying in the same dorm as them. This is a time to invite students to share what they’ve learned, how God is speaking to them, and what is heavy on their hearts.
TL’s have one of the most important jobs at Super Summer. TL’s get to spend more personal time with their students than anyone else on campus. This means that they have the unique ability to minister to, encourage, challenge, and teach students in a way that their deans and youth pastors may not.
