Summer Camp 2020
Covid-19 Summer Camp Update!
Register your camper for Summer camp now!!! We live in crazy times don’t we?! We have been praying for you! Praying that you are healthy, that your needs are being met, and that you are still excited for SUMMER CAMP!!
As of this writing (4/9), we are still planning on having summer camp here at The Springs and we want to encourage you to register your camper! We do, however, want to advise you to ONLY pay the $50 deposit at this time. Because we are still uncertain as to what restrictions the government may put on all of us in the coming months, we want to encourage you to register, but only pay the $50 deposit. This deposit will be refunded in full if camp is canceled. By registering your camper now, this will lock in his/her spot in our registration list! We have had to put campers on “waiting lists” in the past due to being full for certain weeks and we don’t want that to happen to you!! We also offer an Early Bird Registration discount until May 1st that will save you $25 off your registration fee! Sending in your $50 deposit will “lock in” your reduced rate and reserve your campers spot.
We know that camp is a highlight of the year for so many people and we are prayerfully expecting camp to be that again this year. We will continue to keep you posted on any changes that may come up.
#1. Apply before May 15th and save $25
#2. If you are a first time camper(never been to summer camp) save $25
#3. If you invite a friend who has never been to summer camp,
and they apply you save $25
(Total savings per application shall not exceed $75)
Discounts do not apply to Sprinkles or Promise Camp
Venture Cap will receive a DVD of their week for FREE!
Vertical, Elevate, and Intense Camps video will be available on our YouTube page to view or download.
