Day Camp includes awesome activities like the climbing wall, crafts, low ropes, slingshot, water activities, euro-bungee, flying squirrel, silly games and much more! Activities vary by each location. Check out some photos from last year’s Day Camp:
Robin Hood could shoot an arrow so straight he could hit the same spot twice! Can you? William Tell could shoot an apple off someone’s head! Don’t worry, we use targets for our archers. Release your inner Olympian and see if you can get a bull’s eye!
Jump higher than Superman and flip like an acrobat! You’ll feel lighter than air when you’re jumping on this wild trampoline. We buckle you snuggly into a harness then hydraulic arms send you shooting into the air with every bounce!
Our silly songs are so much fun soon you’ll be dancing and singing along in no time. Sing at the top of your lungs during our big group meetings and on your way to all the fun Day Camp activities.
Can you conquer the Centipede! It won’t be easy! The centipede is made from wooden logs connected with cables. As you climb, it twists and sways so hold on tight to make it to the top. You’ll be secured in a climbing harness to help you show this arthropod who’s boss!
Make something cool! We’ll bring the supplies so bring your creativity! We can’t wait to see what you’ll make. Will it be a tye-dyed t-shirt, a painting or something else? We’ll have lots of fun ideas for you.
Leap, wiggle, twirl and rock your socks off! Dance around with your friends at Day Camp!
Some squirrels can jump from trees and glide through the air. These guys are so cool, we named this activity the flying squirrel! It will send you zooming through the air! You’ll strap into a harness and run in one direction while 10 of your Day Camp friends and counselors pull the rope and send you swinging into the air! You’ll be soaring like an eagle, err, squirrel!
This is no ordinary swing set! Buckle into a harness, we’ll hoist you way into the air, you pull the ripcord and then you’ll rocket through the air with a big swing!
Touch, feel and explore! You can learn about walking sticks or make friends with a tree frog when we explore God’s creation! You’ll love learning all about cool new animals, mammals and insects.
Ready! Aim! SPLAT! Get ready to blast some targets with paintballs! We’ll give you some pointers on how to aim your paintball marker then let you have some serious fun zapping your mark with paintballs.
Poof! Its almost magical when the giant parachute fills with air and floats above you! There are so many fun games to play with a parachute. Bring your imagination and lots of friends and you’ll experience something truly unique!
Like a sailor on the high seas, climb high into the air on the rope ladder. Feel the thrill of adventure as you swing and sway while you scramble all the way to the top.
Grab a seat at the best show in town! Skits and dramas will have you laughing and learning all at the same time.
Skittle Skattle Battle
Skittle Skattle Battle
War paint, check! Battle cry, check! Bag of Skittles, OH YEAH! You’re ready for the Skittle Skattle Battle! It’s an outrageous fray that gets the whole camp riled up! We divide the camp into two teams, then your team tries to zigzag through enemy territory to get their skittles into the bucket without getting tagged. It’s like capture the flag meets Candyland!
You’ll get drenched on this super-slippery ride! Run as fast as you can to fly down the inflatable run and send yourself skidding into the splash pool. Now that’s how to stay cool this summer!
Beat the heat with the refreshing thrill of our giant inflatable waterslide! You’ll zip down the huge slide and get ultra soaked when you splashdown in the pool at the bottom.
