Kids Camp 2017 was CRAZY GOOD! We are looking forward to Kids Camp 2018.
Kid’s Camp is a high energy, high impact week of summer camp for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders*.
The energy, the fun, and the Biblical, Jesus centered teachings are at the heart of what makes Kid’s Camp great! Check out the video below for just a glimpse at what Kid’s Camp is!
As campers arrive at camp, they get to move in to their college dorm room where they will be welcomed by their counselors and meet the other campers in their mod (that’s what we call their housing group within the dorm). Let the fun begin! Campers are able to choose 4 of their favorite activities from a variety of options to participate in at camp. See below for these options. In addition, every evening, the entire camp gathers for All Camp Activities. These can be exciting challenges that incorporate social, physical and mental games that everyone can enjoy and participate in together. Mods unity is one way campers will experience the fun, encouragement and belonging of community. One day, a mod may all wear their hair the same or wear the same color of shirt. Another day they might all be wearing cardboard mustaches or walk backwards every time they enter a room. Campers don’t need to worry about bringing anything or preparing for mod unity–counselors will provide what they need or come up with ideas that they can all participate in.
Each morning and evening, everyone will gather in the Tabor Chapel for the camp Chapel sessions. Worship through music will be led by the Kid’s Camp Worship Band. The camp speaker will lead the students to engage with God through the study of the Bible.
Campers will choose 4 activities when filling out the on-line registration. These will be the activities they participate in each of the full days of camp. The options from 2017 are listed below. Campers choose one activity per session time and should not choose the same activity more than once. (For example, they should not choose swimming for both activity 3 & 4.) Activity sign up and availability is on a first come, first serve basis by fully submitted registrations. If there is an activity listed here that does not show up when you are registering, that means it has filled up and you need to choose something else. If you do not fully complete and submit the registration, the spots will not be saved for you. Be sure to submit the registration and not simply save it.

*In 2017, third grade was added to Kid’s Camp and 6th grade moved to Jr High Camp. These are the grades that they will have just completed prior to camp. With this change, Kid’s Camp remained basically the same, but there were a few slight modifications. The biggest change was the length of camp. We have reduced camp from 5 days to 4. Kid’s Camp will begin on Wednesday afternoon and finish Saturday morning.
