REASONS FOR THE DRESS CODE
In life, we have three enemies, the World, the Devil, and the Flesh. After Adam and Eve sinned, we were all born with a sin nature, which is the flesh.
Camp Red Arrow is a Christian camp and as such we are striving to provide a “safe” place not only physically, but spiritually. We want to minimize fleshly distractions in order to promote spiritual growth.
• We try to keep out the world’s influence by limiting access to the media (no radios, TV, etc. allowed).
• We are looking for godly staff members, not perfect people, but those who truly love God more than the world.
• By dressing modestly, we provide an atmosphere that helps us not to focus on the flesh, but on God.
Our overall desire is to bring glory to God and point attention to Him and not to bring undue attention to ourselves.
1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Timothy 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel,
Galatians 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
