Winter Day Camp

Come experience a day of camp, but in the Winter! We’ll fill the day with FUN! This day will include a fun chapel speaker, winter activities, and of course the Kandy Kabin/Rec Room! You’ll get a taste of some of the activities we have during the summer and some exclusive activities that are only offered in the winter! You’ll see some of your favorite counselors from this past summer and meet some new ones. 
This One-Day-Event is welcome to all campers who are currently in Kindergarten – 6th grade. You do not have to have attended a summer camp session to attend Winter Day Camp.
