PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGES IN SCHEDULE AND COST FOR 2019!

Join us for another summer of fun!

Day Camp runs from June 17th - August 16th, 2019. Our program is designed for boys & girls entering 1st grade up to those entering 8th grade in the fall.  Day Camp runs Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Cost is $120/ week and includes all fields trips and other activities. 

Latchkey is available in the mornings from 7 a.m. - 10 a.m. for an additional $30 fee and in the afternoon from 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. for an additional $30 fee.

The Day Camp Program has a capacity of 225 children.

Day Camp activities are conducted in four units:

  • Younger Unit 1-2: Those entering 1st & 2nd grade in the fall
  • Younger Unit 3-4: Those entering 3rd & 4th grade in the fall 
  • Older Unit 5-6: Those entering 5th & 6th grade in the fall
  • Older Unit 7-8: Those entering 7th & 8th grade in the fall

Due to the active nature of the day camp it is expected that children will be able to function independently at a level appropriate for their age.

EVENTS

Each week the children's activities will include swimming, arts & crafts, special events, and field trips, and this year, electives for all ages!  Each camper is responsible to bring a cold lunch with them each day.

Transportation for field trips is provided by The SAL bus and vans, both of which will be driven by adults with the proper licenses.

STAFFING

Our Day Camp is staffed by caring adults  that love day camp as much as your kids do!  We have an average of 10 campers for every adult staff member with more for the younger groups.  All of our staff members are CPR/First Aid certified. 

BIBLE SCHOOL

As part of our weekly curriculum, The SAL will be having a Bible School, 2 sessions a week.  These sessions will teach truths from the Bible which will help the children in daily decision making, family life and friendships.

THE LATCHKEY PROGRAM

Before/After care is available for parents who need it.  The hours for summer Latchkey are from 7:00-10:00am ($30 a week), and from 3:00-6:00pm ($30.00 per week).

Latchkey fees are billed as the program is used, so no down payment is required.

Please sign up for The Latchkey Program ONLY if you will be using the program.  Because of our limited space, if you sign up for the program, you will be responsible to pay for the program whether you use it or not.

COUNSELOR-IN-TRAINING PROGRAM

Our CIT program is available for previous campers entering 9th grade through 17 years old.  CITs become assistants to our counselors for the summer.  They get to attend all the field trips and activities with their assigned groups.  It's a great way to learn leadership skills and learn what it takes to be a day camp counselor in the future. 

 Cost for our CIT program is $60/week plus any latchkey fees.   

All interested CITs need to fill out the CIT registration form and teacher recommendation form.  

No payment is due until the CIT is accepted. The interview process will be concluded by the end of April.

SCHOLARSHIP ASSISTANCE

If your family is in need of financial assistance for Day Camp fees, please visit our main office to pick up a scholarship application before the day camp registration date.
