What kids need for camp: A lunch every day, gym shoes (please no black soles), a sweater if they are prone to get chilled in air conditioned buildings, sunscreen for days we go outside, and a good attitude!

Types of Activities: You can expect your child to participate in gym games, arts & crafts, science/discovery time, time outdoors in small groups, board games, a short movie to wind down at the end of the day, weekly Christian education lessons, and weekly off-site field trips. The field trip schedule for this summer is not yet complete, but you can expect places like the science museum, bowling, and much more!

Day Camp Fees are to be paid in advance, based on the following schedule:

Upon Registration - registration fee of $20 per child, and first weeks tuition (this amount paid only applies to the first week you indicate your child will attend day camp as checked on the registration form. No "switching" weeks will be allowed. No refunds.)

Any children for whom payments have not been received by the due date, will be REMOVED from the registration list for that week, and we will fill the spot with children on the waiting list.

If you expect that you cannot afford the full fee, please bring proof of income (pay stubs or documentation showing SSI/SSD, child support, cash assistance, etc) at the time of registration to accompany your scholarship application.
