Day Camp

 


THIS ISN’T CHILD CARE.

THIS IS CAMP.

Camp is about making friends, having fun, and getting to know God. Camp is a place where you belong. You will have opportunities to try new things, learn independence, and build friendships that will last for many years to come. In life expectations often tower over you, at Camp you can take a break and figure out who you were meant to be. And whether you know God or you’ve never even thought you’d ever care, you’ll leave with a better understanding of His love for you. No matter if you are 6 or 14.

Camp is where you belong.

Age Groups:

Sprouts

Our Sprouts are children entering into Kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade in the Fall. This program introduces summer camp to our youngest campers. Sprouts participate in many of the activities the older kids do, while have low key programs that are geared towards this young age group. Their Bible studies are fun and focus on awesome stories and basic truths from the Bible. They have caring and kind counselors who have experience working with little ones.

Seekers

Our Seekers group is for campers entering 3rd and 4th grades. Seekers participate in all the fun theme related activities with the other age groups, and have certain activities that are only offered to them. They can try new things the Sprouts are not yet allowed to do, such as our climbing wall or giant swing. Their Bible studies are exciting and focus on developing great character. Their counselors are energetic and fun-loving, and have experience working with children.

Explorers

The Explorers group is for children entering 5th and 6th grades in the Fall. On top of the exciting theme activities with the rest of Day Camp, Explorers are offered more choices that are appropriate for older kids, like archery or challenge course initiatives. Explorer Bible studies are interesting and go deeper than the previous ages, allowing more discussion on the topics. Their counselors are friendly, approachable, caring, and trained to work with kids who are transitioning from childhood to adolescent.

Pathfinders

Our Pathfinders are our oldest campers entering 7th through 9th grade. Pathfinders participate in theme activities with the other groups, and also have a chance to do things none of the younger day campers can do, like the zip line. Their Bible studies are interesting and thought provoking, and focus on building a strong character to withstand the challenges of everyday life. Their counselors are approachable, caring, attentive, and fun-loving, who understand the complicated life of teenagers.
