Scholarships Available

Welcome to Kids Camp 2018!

Join us for an awesome week of storytelling, music, crafts, games, hands-on service projects, and friends, fun, and laughter. This year’s theme is Shipwrecked…Rescued by Jesus. Venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive. Kids will be anchored in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms.

We are looking forward to sharing the love of Jesus with you and your family this summer. As many of you know, we have experienced a lot of growth in attendance at Kids Camp…which is really cool! We want your child’s experience to be awesome, so to assist us with planning and to ensure a spot this year, encourage your family and friends to register early.

Fifth and sixth grade registration will be limited to 52 participants this year. This is the capacity we have to transport 5th & 6th graders to  off-site service projects.

Payment is due when you register.

5th/6th Grade Off-site Service Projects

Fifth and sixth graders participate in off-site service projects on Tuesday and Wednesday of Kids Camp. This is an incredible opportunity for your kids to be the hands, feet and voice of Jesus in our community. As Kids Camp nears, parents will be notified where the projects are located. All project locations are within a 15-20 minute drive of Faith Lutheran Church. Your child will be transported in rental vans driven by adults over the age of 25 who have completed a required Volunteer Background Investigation and a Driving Record Check. Your student can participate in these projects ONLY if the required permission is granted.

** If you prefer your child not participate in the off-site service projects, he or she will stay onsite and participate in the day’s planned activities. **

Checking In and Out of Kids Camp — New Procedure

The safety of your children is of the utmost importance to us. We appreciate your understanding and patience with the process to ensure your children are safe and secure at all times. Talk to your children about this process as well, so they don’t leave the Worship Center without being properly checked out.

  • Checking In: You check your child in each morning at the tables in the lobby. You will receive a check-out ticket with a number on it that is assigned to your child. This same number will be on the back of your child’s name tag they wear each day. Each child registered will have their own ticket. Please put this ticket in a safe place for the week.
  • Checking Out: You will check your child out each day in the Worship Center. Your child will be in their assigned group. You will be required to present your check-out ticket to your child’s leader and they will ensure the number you present matches the number on their name tag. You will also be required to sign the check-out sheet to verify you have picked up your child.

Kids Camp is a partnership of Faith Lutheran Church, Hillside Community Church, and Calvary Episcopal Church

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I request that my child be put in a group with their friends?

Due to the complexity of organizing kids into groups, we can honor one friend request per child. We have three age groups: Pre/Kind, 1st-4th grade, and 5th-6th Your child will be placed in a group based on the grade they are entering in the fall. There is a spot on the registration form for you to request one friend to be placed in your group.
