Day Camp Programs
Day camp programs are the perfect introduction to camp for younger campers who are excited to try new things! Each week offers a theme to keep day camp fresh and fun for new and returning campers alike.
Day camp runs daily from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Certain weeks, busing is provided from Beamsville and St. Catharines (dependent on the week as outlined below). Day campers are placed in small activity groups with other children of the same age. They participate in all of the traditional camp activities. Campers will be provided with a hot lunch and snacks. Day camp is an ideal choice for first time campers, and can serve as a stepping stone to Bridge or Overnight camp.
Please note a very important change to our Day Camp Program beginning in the summer of 2020
The eligable age for our day camp program has been updated to reflect the programmatic focus for our day programs for younger campers who are eager to participate in exciting outdoor camp programs for the first time. As such all day campers must be between 5-10 years old at the time of their desired session.
Campers who are 11 and 12 years old and who have loved their day camp experiences in the past are encouraged to check out our Bridge Camp programs, details for which can be found below.
Please feel free to be in touch with Sharon at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions about the changes in day camp age eligablility effective this year.
Before and After Camp Care
There are additional fees for before and after camp care. If you require care from 7:30-8:30am and/or from 4:30-5:30pm, there is a charge of $30/week per camper.

Campers are introduced to God in a new and exciting fashion. We recognize that children come from a variety of backgrounds and we strive to provide them with a safe environment to learn about God. Children participate in a daily session where they sing contemporary worship music, led by a worship band. They also watch an age-appropriate drama that runs the span of the week. After session, children take part in small group discussions and activities where they are encouraged to ask questions and recap what took place during the daily drama. Each day ends with vespers. During this time, campers are led in more worship and participate in skits about God.
