CAMP PROGRAM

WHAT IS THE SCHOOL BREAK PROBLEM?

  1. During the school year parents are confident that their children are well cared for, well supervised, and involved in educational and recreational activities with their school.
  2. During the school breaks, working parents need a place that will provide supervised activities in a clean, safe environment.

Limited Enrollment
In order to retain a balanced camper/counselor ratio, enrollment will be on a first-come first-serve basis. Please indicate on the registration form the weeks you desire to attend. Our Day Camp is for ages 5-15.

HERE’S WHAT’S INCLUDED

  1. Learn a sport
    Various sports will be taught by our staff to enable each camper to have an introduction to basic sports rules and skills. Other games will also be a part of the program.
  2. Daily Chapel Time
    Our daily chapel program teaches Biblical principles of morality and respect for God, parents, and country. While we expect every child to participate in chapel, there will be no pressure placed on them to join our church or be baptized. The Bible is taught from a literal standpoint. The King James translation of the Bible is used for uniformity (campers are not required to purchase Bibles, but will have the opportunity to earn one if they wish). Pastor Michael L. McClure is responsible for the organization of the chapel programs.
  3. Lunch Time
    Each child should bring his or her own lunch   with a cold pack as necessary.  The camp does not have facilities to heat or prepare food.  A Kool-Aid type drink will be provided at no additional charge.  Children should bring healthful snacks for their break times.  We suggest lunches and snacks that do NOT require refrigeration.  While there is always water available, children may also purchase drinks and snacks  from the canteen if they desire.
  4. Nap Time
    Nap time will be available on an as-needed basis for those in the 5-7 year age group. Children need to bring their own nap mat in the event of nap time.
  5. Variety of Classes
    Each year we offer theme weeks with a variety of classes, including crafts, etiquette and life-skills training, self-defense training, time for competition, and fun games. We schedule guest speakers and special events coordinated to the theme of the week.
  6. Swimming
    The West Park Baptist Church Camp is one of the few day camps to have an onsite swimming pool. All campers will have daily swim time, weather permitting. Swimming is under the supervision of our life guards and counselors.
