We are still waiting on Skagt County to move into Phase 3 to be able to operate our camps. We will continue to offer a full refund in case of Covid related cancellations.
We had been hoping to operate day camps without the need for having kids wear masks at all, by keeping them in static small groups and cancelling any large group activities. Of course, having all our camp activities outside is helpful. However, with the state mandate for masks, we have had to change our plans... Kids will need to wear masks for check-in, check-out, moving between activited and during activities where distancing from other campers can't be maintained. We are imagining times like crafts, some games in rec, group chats/trail talk, and outdoor lessons in the woods, garden or on the beach as places where we can spread campers out in larger circles so that they won't be wearing masks. We would like them smiling and breathing in as much fresh air as possible. At the moment we are reimagining how this would work, and what changes we can make to different activities to accomodate the ever changing rules. We will also be doing health checks at check-in, have hand-washing or hand sanitizer available throughout the camp, and will be cleaning and sanitizing common areas more than ever. Please do let us know if you have any questions. We will be posting and sending out more information as we have more clarity about changes this summer.
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.
Dates for 2020:
$175 a week
$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. Carpools are encouraged. 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 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. 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!
