Camp Play Days

Let’s play at camp! Fridays from 9 am-4 pm are Camp Play Days during virtual learning or homeschooling weeks. We want to give campers a chance to interact with friends, learn a Bible story, get homework help and tutoring, play outside away from screens, and have a ton of fun all at a safe, social distance! Before care is available from 7-9 am and aftercare from 4 pm-6 pm to accommodate parents’ work schedules. We are offering sibling and multi-session discounts, too!

Full day Camp is $50 and morning or afternoon half-day sessions are $25. Before care and after care is $15.

The following dates are available to register:

September 18, 25, 28 (this is a Monday that schools are closed)

October 2, 9, 16, 23, 30

November 2, 3, 6, 13, 20

Camp Play Days start with touch-less drop-off and health screenings. Then it is off to the outdoor chapel for the Morning Show where we play crazy games, have skits, and learn a Bible lesson. We are just starting to get all the details of what Flex Fridays Schedules (for Harford County Public School students) look like and are working to meet the technology expectations! Campers will be able to check their attendance and see what they need to do for each class at the start of the day. Campers then go to small groups to do crafts, take a hike, complete schoolwork, participate in small group discussions, play games, and have fun. Next comes lunch, followed by large group activities, snack, and eventually back to the chapel to review the Bible lesson and sing some praise and worship! Pick-up will be similar to drop-off. We will have a staff member meet you as you pull into the parking lot to relay who is getting picked-up to keep the pick-up line moving.

Parents, we are navigating this virtual learning right along with you. We hope to be able to provide a great environment where your kids can have fun, meet new friends, and get the social interaction and the learning support that they need. Camp has limited Wi-Fi, but we have excellent cellular service and a hot spot that can be used. We will have a state-certified teacher, Ms. Denise McNew, on hand in the afternoons to help with any schoolwork or tutoring that is needed. We ask that you help us assist your student by letting us know if your child has a scheduled class meeting or assignments that require help. Additionally, we would like to help campers complete their weekly gym activities. We have balls and hula hoops galore, just waiting for campers to use them! If/when you know your school’s gym requirements, we ask that you forward them to us. We may have campers from different school districts, so we will try our best to get it all done. As we navigate these new waters, we also ask for some grace and flexibility as things may change (policies and schedules) without much notice. We know that good communication will be the best way to serve everyone. Be assured we will do everything we can to support your student camper!
