Prepare your child for an exciting and fun summer! Bethany Christian School’s annual summer camp will take place once again this summer. Your child will have an enjoyable summer with experienced teachers in a safe Christian environment. Camps will vary each week with different themes, corresponding Bible verses, and character attributes. Your child will not only have fun with crafts, water-games, and various other activities, but they will also have the chance to grow spiritually.

Camp will run from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm every day. For an additional $5 each, per day, before-care will begin at 7:00 am and after-care will end at 6:00 pm.

Fieldtrips to enhance camp themes may be scheduled, and an additional cost may be required. However, this cost will not exceed $20 per camper. Information regarding these fieldtrips will be provided once camp begins.

In order for the best possible camp experience, campers will need to pack the following: a lunch and two snacks, a water bottle, sunscreen (the spray sunscreen is the recommended type of sunscreen as it is easier for campers to apply!), a bathing suit and towel, and a plastic bag for wet items.
