Welcome to BCS Summer Camp!
Prepare your child for an exciting and fun summer! Bethany Christian School’s annual summer camp will take place once again this summer in the month of June and the week before school begins in August.
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.
Field trips 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. The dress code is clean, neat, and modest, with no offensive language or pictures. Tank top straps must be at least 3 fingers wide and shorts must be longer than mid-thigh. Campers should wear sneakers, and Crocs or flip-flops are recommended for water games. Bathing suits must cover midriffs for both boys and girls, therefore, boys must wear rash guards or t-shirts with their swim trunks and girls may NOT wear bikinis.
To register, please fill out the Registration and Order forms and return to the school. Camp payment is due by noon the Monday before your desired session (1 week in advance). Payments made after the due date will be charged a $10 administrative fee. In addition to the full-week camp, we are offering a $45 per-day option for most camps.

Rainforest Reflections: The deep, dark rainforest isn’t so dark after all. It’s filled with all the colors of the rainbow! This week we will be getting to know some of the animals of this region of the world through crafts and kid-friendly snacks. We may even have a special visitor come a speak about animal care. Campers will be focusing on the meaning of contentment and how to be happy no matter where we are.
Arctic Adventures: Brrr! It’s cold up north but for us it will be like a summer day. This week campers will cool off while learning about the Northern Lights as well as some of the animals that call the arctic home. Don’t forget that special cold treat, ice cream! A few visitors may join us to share their knowledge, as well. Courage is our character attribute, so we will be discovering how God is our strength in everyday life.
Hawaiian Holiday: Sand, surf, and volcanos! We will be enjoying crafts and games centered around Hawaii. We will also be making a few fun treats throughout the week. Compassion is a trait that God wants us to show to those around us. Our visitors may help us understand this topic in a new way.
Off-Site Adventures: Fasten your seatbelts! Campers will be going off-site to different places each day of the week, and learning something new every day! Campers will also learn about adventure and the importance of finding strength and standing firm in God when we begin new journeys in our life.
