Zion Summer Day Camp is a Christ-centered child care opportunity families of children ages 18 months – 5th grade (currently). Throughout the summer children will be involved in weekly chapel services, in house field trips, water play day, art, games, time outside, and other classroom activities. On a daily basis children will participate in planned thematic activities, recreational activities both indoors and outdoors, and arts & crafts. Children in ELP and preschool will follow schedules similar to their typical school schedule.

All classrooms are air conditioned and arranged by grade level and staffed by caring, qualified Christian educators and assisted by High School and College students.
