FAQs

Will there be before & after-care offered?

Before & After-Care will be available each week, from 8-9am and 4-5:30pm, for a cost of $40 per week – to be paid the first day of camp.

Is Adventure Bible Camp (ABC) happening this summer?

Due to our church building project set to begin construction this summer, we will be pausing our annual Adventure Bible Camp as it requires the usage of the entire building. It is important to us to uphold safety standards and make sure we can still provide your child with the best camp experience possible. We are so excited to be able to offer these 3 new camps using our Gymnasium, Youth Lounge & Kitchen facilities, with Gymnasium entry & exit, and can’t WAIT to bring Adventure Bible Camp back once our building project is complete! 

Are snacks & lunch provided for camps?

While we will provide a snack each day, campers should pack and bring their own nut-free lunch for Multisports & STEM camp. Cooking Camp will have snack & lunch provided, as the kids will be eating what they prepare. A pizza lunch option will be offered for a small additional cost on 1 day of Multisports & STEM camp.
