Summer Day Camp Continues!!
We are pleased to announce that we are adding another week to our 2020 schedule! We will be having Wild, Wild, West Camp next week August 10th – 14th - 9am to 3pm with before/aftercare coverage from 7am to 6pm. With schools delaying or going all online we hope to be a place that can serve families in our community. If you know people interested, we are accepting walk-ins at the door this coming Monday, August 10th. The weekly cost is $110.00 and the daily cost is $25.00 with a $10 registration fee. If you have any questions please contact the FCLC Summer Camp Director Brett Lindemood at
2020 Summer Day Camp run each week through August 14th. We are committed to providing a safe and fun environment for your children.
Charlie Young is back this summer as our Program Director and we are working hard making adjustments to ensure we are able to hold a camp that is as safe as possible during this time of C19. Here are a few examples of what we are working on:
* Check-in and check out procedures (we are using the CDC guidelines for school, camps, and daycare to update how we will handle this – More info will be coming soon)
* Program/sessions spacing (we are spacing out our sessions so that we do not have campers in a station right after another cabin group has used it. This will give us time to clean and disinfect each station in between use).
* We have added hands-free soap and towel dispensers to our bathroom facilities.
* Our lunch and snack time will be separated into their own cabin groups by grade level.
* We’ve added time in between each session/activity to ensure all campers and staff wash their hands (we hope to be adding outdoor sinks for this)
* We have hired our own staff for deeper cleaning every night to ensure that all surfaces are cleaned and disinfected.
* We added C19 practices and procedures into our staff training.
* We also are meeting weekly to continue to discuss how we can best offer a safe and fun camp experience for your children.
We hope you are safe and healthy during this time, and we hope to see you this summer!

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. 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. $10 registration fee for Wild, Wild West Camp only.
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.)
