Every week during the summer at Camp Arnold we host a Day Camp for the local children. This camp runs along side our resident camp and offers campers the chance to experience the camp atmosphere while still being able to return home for the evening. Each day is packed full of fun events that gives campers the chance to play and have fun, but also experience God through chapel sessions and the great outdoors. Once per week, typically on Fridays, we will have a special event on-site at Camp Arnold.
Spots fill up fast, so don't wait to make your child's reservation. Below you will find all the information you need about our day camp program and you can download an application to fill out and return to our main office.
We will be accepting applications for Day Camp on May 1st 2013
Dates: Weekly Sessions beginning June 24, 2013
A Typical Day:
Have a great evening - see you tomorrow!
Breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack will be provided for your child. We will try to meet any special dietary needs your child may have, but you may be asked to provide/supplement our meal service with food more appropriate for your child’s needs (this will not change the weekly rates).
Special Activity Day:
Once per week, typically on Fridays, we will have a special event on-site at Camp Arnold. The timing of this event will vary week to week, but will always occur between the hours of 9:00 am and 4:30 pm. Please check with the Day Camp staff to make sure of the day and times of this event each week.
Camp Arnold Dismissal Policy:
To provide a safe and enjoyable environment that reflects Christian values, certain guidelines must be followed. If, for any reason, your child’s behavior is considered detrimental to the camp, he or she will be dismissed. You are responsible for providing transportation in the unlikely event of this disciplinary dismissal. Please note that no refund will be given for that weekly session.
