A Christ centered summer day camp





Zion Summer Day Camp is a Christ-centered child care opportunity for families of children age 2 – 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, Christian educators and assisted by High School students.

Upon registration completion, you will turn in a $50 registration fee and fill out a Joyful Response for camp fees.  If you do not already have an account, Zion’s business manager will contact you to set one up.
