Our Day Camp began about 35 years ago by an energetic college student seeking opportunities for our church and community children to do activities together with a Christian emphasis.
It runs for 6 weeks during the summer, starting in June after our week of Vacation Bible School and is held at our church pavilion. Day Camp is offered free of charge to children completing 1st – 6th grades, each grade taking one week.
Applications are distributed locally and are available online. Along with a director for each week there are counselors, 7th grade and up, who are there to provide supervision.
Each day runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Our normal schedule is as follows:
