CHALLENGE DRESS CODE

Here is the dress code as written up by the Challenge Conference staff in their "Conference Guidelines":

Modesty has traditionally defined as adequate cover-up with little or no upper thigh, midriff, or chest area exposed for females, and males must have a shirt on at all times except when swimming. In an effort to maintain modesty, we are requiring all female swimsuits be a onepiece or midriff covering bathing suit; males must wear trunk style bathing suits. Shoes are to be worn at all times for health and safety reasons. Youth workers and conference personnel are permitted to request a student to change into more modest attire.

These are the guidelines for all clothes...not just swimsuits. Remember, as Christians we are to present ourselves modestly. The letter of the law makes clear the kind of clothes that will be acceptable, but the spirit of the law is to strive for modesty. Keep that in mind when packing for this upcoming week.

Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. - 1 Peter 3:3-4
