Morning And Evening Day Camps
Morning Day Camps are conducted in designated locations. Monday through Friday, from 9:00am-11:00am. They are for children ages 4-12.
Evening Day Camps are also conducted in designated areas, Monday through Thursday, from 6:30pm-8:00pm. They are for children ages 4-12, but you should expect children of all ages from infants to high school age to attend.
What Is Required
Day camps mustinclude a Bible lesson, and may also include music, games, crafts, and recreation. Drinks and snacks should be served during break time.
Groups are responsible for providing all Day Camp materials, craft supplies, refreshments, and publicity. (Bringballs, sidewalk-chalk, bubbles, frisbees, etc.)
Youth are capable of leading all phases of Day Camps and are encouraged to do so under adequate adult supervision. Over-planning and flexibilityare essential to the success of Day Camps for campers and groups. In this setting, evangelism needs to be one-on-one. It is imperative that no undue pressure is put on any child. You are seed planters!!!

Day Camps are DAY CAMPS!
Not Vacation Bible Schools, not Backyard Bible Clubs.
They are DAY CAMPS!
Crafts can be an effective way of introducing Christ to children. Have all parts of the craft pre-cut and ready to be assembled by the children. You can use crafts that relate to the day’s Bible story or that double as the day’s snack. Please avoid using very light-weight materials as they have a tendency to blow away in the wind. Be sure to bring all materials needed for each craft, as well as any items needed for clean-up.
For effective communication to all of the children, place them in groups according to ageand/or grade. Share age-appropriate stories from memory. Use variety in your presentations by including puppets, clowns, skits, etc. in order to keep the children interested. You can also use songs that relate directly to the story for further reinforcement.
Day Camps are conducted in designated locations in campgrounds. The campgrounds range from primitive tent camping to RV's too rentals. Families from all over come to these campgrounds and you can have the amazing opportunity to serve them. The campgrounds are Pirate Land, Apache, and Travel Park.
