General Camp Information

Summer Camp runs Tuesday, May 31-Friday July 29, 2022 (9-weeks). Sign-up for as many weeks as you desire, however keep in mind that we are not allowing for drop-ins. Spaces are limited so sign up today.

Campers should be entering Kindergarten-entering 6th grade as of Fall 2022. Students older than 6th grade (7th grade-college-age) can apply to be CITs, Counselors, or interns (respectively). 

Each week of camp costs $175. A discounted rate of $150/week is available if you pay for the whole summer up front. There is no cost to be a CIT, counselor, or intern. Payment is due no later than the Friday prior to the upcoming week of camp. Before & After Care are available at additional cost.

Parents should sign their camper in each morning with their counselor. Regular drop-off runs 8:30am-9:15am.

Pick-up is done “car-line” style where parents drive thru the line and campers are delivered to vehicles (like a typical school day). Campers not picked up by 3:20pm will be charged for aftercare services and will be picked up indoors.

Before care is available from 7:30am to 8:30am. After-care begins at 3:20pm and lasts until 5:15pm. Campers must be picked up by 5:15pm. Before and aftercare is located in the Christian Life Center. Before care is a flat fee of $10/week per camper whether you use it once or multiple days. Aftercare is a flat fee of $20/week per camper whether you use it once or multiple days.

Campers need to bring their own lunch. Lunches will be refrigerated. All lunches should be clearly labeled with the camper’s first name, last name, and fall 2022 grade.

Snack is provided each morning and typically consists of pretzels/tortilla chips/crackers, fruit snacks, and a juice box.

Snack Bar is available afternoon. Campers can purchase their choice of chips, candy, popsicles for $0.50-$1.00. 

Each week we have a special day in which your child can participate. These days include crazy hair day, crazy hat day, pirate day, cowboy day, superhero day, etc. Fridays are Drive-in Movie Day (usually for the lower grades). Older kids have the option to participate in a dodgeball tournament.

Every Wednesday at camp is “Water Day.” Your camper(s) can either bring or wear their swimsuits to camp so that they can enjoy the water activity. Water day activities include water slides, slip ‘n’ slides and much more! Have your camper(s) bring a towel marked with their name. We will have sunscreen available, but please apply sunscreen on your camper(s) before they come to camp. Campers are also allowed to bring water guns, but we ask that the water guns are EMPTY when they come to camp. Water guns are able to be filled at camp.

 If your child has a birthday during camp, please let a counselor know and we will be sure to sing to your camper to wish them a happy birthday!

PLEASE NOTE Camp is a fun and exciting environment and items tend to become misplaced or switch hands. In light of this, we request valuables be left at home. ELECTRONICS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT CAMP. Gaming devices (including Nintendo Switch), tablets, cell phones, or any other electronic devices will be taken away and secured in the church office. Christ Church-Lutheran and School is not responsible for loss or damage to items brought to camp. 

In order to easily keep track of your camper’s items, we ask that all items are clearly marked with your child’s first and last name as well as their fall 2022 grade. Items to be marked include towels, lunch boxes, backpacks, water bottles, extra clothes, etc.
