Summer Day Camp
Facts About Camp
WHAT IS SUMMER DAY CAMP? We care about families & youth here at Friendship Celebration Lutheran Church (FCLC). We provide a fun, safe, & Bible centered affordable alternative to Day Care for those in our local community. Day Camp is for families that need something for their children every day of summer break, or for those who may only need a week or two (or even a day or two per week).
WHO CAN ATTEND? Preschool Day-Camp is for ages 3-5 years of age (potty trained is required) & will have at least 2 counselors/teachers for every 12 campers. Summer Day-Camp is for children who are at least 5 years old (by June 1st, 2019) through children who are going into 7th grade in the fall of 2019. Campers will be assigned to groups based on their grade & gender.
WHO ARE THE CAMP STAFF? The Camp Director is Brett Lindemood (Youth & Family Minister at FCLC), and the Program Director is Charlie Young (College Intern). The Day-Camp Staff includes Pre-School teachers and aids, other Church staff members, College students, High School age counselors, & Counselors Assistants (7th & 8th graders). All staff have been background checked.
HOW MUCH DOES EACH WEEK COST? There is a one time $25 registration fee (nonrefundable) due upon registration in order to hold your spot. Registration for a week of camp is $110 per week. Daily Registration is available for $25 per day. In order to guarantee your campers spot for that week registration and fees must be received prior to the beginning of that week or day of camp. Camp registration costs will only be refunded to you if you notify the Church office in writing of your cancellation in the by the Friday of the prior week. Please note: the $25 registration fee is non-refundable.
LUNCH? Campers must bring their own lunch in a small lunchbox, cooler, or sack. Lunches will be gathered by grade and refrigerated. All Lunches should be clearly labeled with the campers first name, last name, & grade they are in during the 2019/20 school year. (If your chid has a food allergy, their lunch will be stored separately)
SNACKS AND SNACK BAR? A morning & afternoon snack will be provided daily at no extra cost. During the afternoon snack time campers may purchase items (juice boxes, fruit snacks, assorted candy, water bottles, and soda. Most items are $0.50, but prices may vary. Campers are responsible for their own cash. (A great idea
would be to pack a quarter or two in their lunch box).
WEEKLY EVENTS? Each Thursday we will have special themed days & event where we may suggest that the campers participate (this is voluntary on your part) in things such as: Crazy Hair Day, Crazy Hat Day, Dress Up Day, etc… Friday, if the weather permits, will be a water day, please send them in a swim suit & towel with a change
of clothes. We will be outside most days (unless there is a heat warning, or smoke warning). If we are not able to go outside, we may watch a movie for a special event with a rating of PG or lower. All camps will have an opening & closing with Bible devotions, songs & competition. Each week may also include sports, group games, archery, crafts, puppets, skits, snacks (peanut & nut-free), & a whole lot of FUN! Some weeks will have special events based on
