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 daycare 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, 2020) through children who are going into 7th grade in the fall of 2020. 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 (non-refundable) due upon registration in order to hold your spot. Normal registration for a week of camp is $110, but if you register before before June 7th by 4:00pm (Early Registration Deadline) the Early Registration Rate is $95 per week. Daily Registration is available for $25 per day. In order to guarantee your camper’s 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 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 camper’s first name, last name, & grade for the 2020/21 school year. (If your child 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 & events where we may suggest that the campers participate (voluntary) 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 the theme.
SUNSCREEN? We will have sunscreen available, but please apply sunscreen on your camper(s) before they come to camp. If they need special sunscreen please make that known as your drop them off for the first day of camp & provide sunscreen for them for the week.
BEFORE/AFTER CARE? Before Care & After Care will be available for each day of camp from 7:00am to 8:30am & 3:30pm to 6:00pm for a minimal fee of $10 per day. (See registration on reverse side for more information.)
