Dear Campers and Camp Families,
We are so sad to let you know that we have decided to cancel culinary and day camps for summer 2021. The past year has been extremely difficult and we hate to add one more disappointment, especially for your kids. It takes months of planning, recruitment and training for us to be able to provide quality camps for your kids. With the late notification that we would be allowed to run programs, it has made it very difficult (for camps everywhere) to recruit the necessary staff, and that was one issue that we just couldn’t overcome. We are so sorry for all the kids and families that we know really need camp this summer. We are trusting God to provide just what you need, and we will miss you!

Directors at Quaker Cove
Come join us as we play in the summer sun and learn about God at Quaker Cove. Day Camp is for kids entering grades 1-6. Campers start the day singing with our staff and counselors during our opening program, and go on into smaller age groups with a trained counselor from whom they will learn hands-on about nature, do a craft, and play games with each other. Campers bring their own lunches from home everyday, so that we can best guarantee that your child is safe from allergens.
All camps will operate in alignment with guidelines outlined in the Healthy Washington Roadmap to Recovery and feature the following:
Daily health screening
Cohorts that remain together for the week, with an emphasis on physical distancing whenever possible
Enhanced cleaning and sanitation
Frequent handwashing/hand sanitizer
Masks required for staff and participants, except when eating, drinking, or during distanced breathing breaks.
All activities will be outdoors unless forced to be indoors by weather, in which case only one cohort per area with distancing and increased ventilation.
Dates for 2021:
$190 a week ($25 non refundable deposit)
$15 discount for early registration by June 12th
Drop off for day camp is from 8:30-9 and our program begins at 9 am each day. Our day concludes at 3:30 pm. Parents are reponsible for transportation to and from camp. Children should be dropped off at our second driveway (the driveway after our main entrance with the Quaker Cove sign.)
What to bring:
Campers should wear sturdy shoes, and make sure to bring a cloth or disposable mask and a spare, a daypack with a light jacket, sunscreen, water bottle, lunch and a snack. Please don't forget to let us know if your camper needs to take any medication throughout the day on our medical release form, and bring any medicine with you to give to the camp nurse at drop-off. Please do not bring any phones or electronics or items that may be dangerous to other campers.
We have a commitment to quality care of your children. All staff working in our day camp program have passed a state and federal background check, and each counselor will have had a basic medical training or will be partnered with one who has. Of course, we choose our staff based on their Christian testimony, a lifestyle commitment on their application and their ability to work with children. If you have any questions or concerns we are more than happy to talk with you and invite any suggestions on how we can make our camp a safe and comfortable place for your kids!
