Day Camp (Grades 1-9) is our non-overnight summer camp program. The daily 9am-4pm schedule includes all the best new and classic elements of camp: adventure activities like the Giant Swing or Climbing Wall, arts and crafts, waterfront time, Banana Boating, and a ton more! Day Campers will have lots of fun and, along the way, build great new relationships, explore valuable life lessons, and learn new ways to grow in their relationship with God.

Many campers come for multiple weeks of Day Camp, which changes throughout the summer; keeping the camp basics from week to week, but offering a fresh program that wows returners and first-time campers all at once.

Learn more about our age-appropriate programming in the sections below.

Prior to Camp

What to Bring

Campers should have a range of clothes for any weather. Clothing should allow campers to be active. Include closed-toe shoes for activities. Modest swimsuits are required. A back pack or tote bag makes it simple to carry items to and from camp. Click to see what to bring to Day Camp!

Spending Money

Prior to camp (recommended) and at check-in you will have the opportunity to deposit money in your camper’s spending money account.  This money will allow them to purchase things in the afternoon at our camp stores without having to keep track of any cash.  The store carries candy, snacks, soda, water and Gatorade ranging from $.25 to $2.00. Day campers are limited to $1.50 per day on candy and soda and $2.00 per day on whole grain snacks or fruit. Water and Gatorade are not limited. They can also purchase camp merchandise ranging from $.25 to $45.00 from the store. Campers also have an opportunity to donate a portion of their spending money (between $0-$5.00) to our mission project.

Team Requests

It is great to invite your friends to come to camp with you, and we want to make it possible for your camper to be in a group with his/her friends. There is a spot on the registration form (Teammate Requests), where you can list the names of up to two other people your camper would like to be grouped with.

Teammates must request one another. Due to our desire to form a healthy group community, we will not put more than three campers together in one group. If your group is larger than three, campers will be separated in different groups.

In order to keep certain activities and teaching times age appropriate, we will be assigning teams within the grade range of 1-3 and 4-7. Campers entering 4th grade may occasionally choose to join the 1-3 schedule if the 4th grade camper requests a friend in the younger group.

*Please be honest about your child’s age and grade. Please contact us if you have any questions about programming or team requests for your child. If you misrepresent your age and/or grade level, we reserve the right to remove your child from a program.

Arrival Info

Check-in

Check-in occurs on the first day of camp between 8:30 and 9:00. For reasons of safety and security, specific information regarding arrival and departure is sent directly via email to registered campers only. Please call our office with any questions. Upon arrival to check-in, our staff will greet you at your car and you will go through our drive-through check-in process.

Late drop-off/early pick-up

Late arrival or early pick-up is not recommended and should be considered only in extreme circumstances. If you must arrive late for any reason please call our office in advance so we may prepare for your arrival. Early pick-up can be arranged at check-in. We will not allow a camper to be picked up and dropped off more than once during the camp day because of the negative experience that it has on your camper and other campers.
