Summer Day Camp

Early & After Care

As a day camp, we recognize that dropping your kids off at camp more than once a week can be difficult, especially for parents who both work full-time jobs! That's why we offer an early and after care option for summer campers. You can bring them to camp as early as 7:30 am and pick them up as late as 5:30 pm. Just select this option during the registration process.

NOTE: Overnights for 2020 Summer Camp have been cancelled. New checkout time for 3rd-8th grades on Thursdays is 8:00pm.

Kindergartners come for a half-day program Monday - Thursday, 8:30 am - 12:15 pm and Friday until closing at 1:30 pm. Full capacity is 10 campers to 1 adult staff and 2 counselors. They do their activities as a whole group, which include swimming, crafts, bible lessons, and more.

1st-2nd Graders spend full days at camp Monday - Thursday, 8:30 am - 4:00 pm and a half day Friday, 8:30 am - 1:30 pm. These campers experience camp in buddy groups of 5, inside larger groups of 20. Each buddy group has a counselor, and each large group has a lead counselor (called a SONIC). 1st-2nd grade campers experience activities including (but certainly not limited to!) swimming, crafts, bible, large group games, themed imagination adventures, and nature experiences.

3rd-5th Graders come for day camp Monday - Wednesday, 8:30 am - 4:00 pm, and then have an overnight Thursday, coming at 8:30 am Thursday and departing Friday at 1:30 pm. 3rd-5th graders are broken into groups and buddy groups the same way 1st-2nd graders are. 3rd-5th grade campers do many of the same activities as 1st-2nd graders, plus archery, a water polo tournament, and more!

6th-8th Graders attend day camp Monday, 8:30 am - 4:00 pm, and Tuesday - Wednesday 8:30 am - 7:00 pm. Thursday they come at 8:30 am and stay through Friday at 1:30 pm. They are broken into groups and buddy groups in the same way as 1st-5th graders. 6th-8th grade campers experience more large group games, more competition between groups and buddy groups, small group time, the climbing tower, ropes course, and a canoe experience on a local lake!

9th-12 Graders, (CANCELLED for 2020) like 6th-8th Graders, come for day camp Monday, 8:30 am - 4:00 pm, then Tuesday arrive at 8:30 am and stay through Friday at 1:30 pm. They experience camp in groups of 10-12, led by an adult counselor. The 9th-12th grade camp experience is an all-out fun time with activities like large group games, an escape room, canoe trip, ropes course, and much more! Throughout the week, students will be encouraged in their faith and given tools to strengthen their relationship with Christ.
