Each age group has varying activities & levels of programming.
Here is a little more detail about each one:

Kindergartners come for a half-day program. 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. 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 (SONIC). 1st-2nd grade campers experience activities including (but not limited to) swimming, crafts, bible, large group games, themed imagination adventures, and nature experiences.

3rd-5th Graders spend full days at camp with an overnight on Thursday. 3rd-5th graders are broken into groups and buddy groups the same way 1st-2nd graders are. 3rd-5th grade campers participate in swimming, crafts, bible, large group games, themed adventures, nature, archery, a water polo tournament, and more!

6th-8th Graders spend full days at camp with an overnight on Thursday.  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 and competition between groups, small group time, the climbing tower, ropes course, and a canoe experience.

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.
