Share the Fun
If you see your child having copious amounts of fun singing, building, learning, and playing from home we would love know that. Our many volunteers will be encouraged to hear those stories since so few of us will actually have the joy of interacting with the campers this year. If you take any awesome pictures during camp you can share them on social media with #cpcdc2020.
So What Did You Do At Day Camp Today?
One of the upsides to doing an online Day Camp is that all of our content is recorded. That means if you want to rewatch any part of camp you can! Access the worship, crafts, drama, teaching, and games videos through this playlist: Videos from the day will be added after each day of camp. Use these videos to have followup conversations with your children or to share with friends who were not able to make it. There is also a “make your craft better” challenge each day so that campers can keep the creativity going even after Day Camp wraps up. If you need these directions access the Artisan/craft video after camp concludes.
What is Camp?
Covenant Day Camp is a week-long experience for children entering grades K-6. Covenant Day Camp is an environment in which children have the opportunity to discover that the Christian Faith is a living relationship with a loving God.
Because of the ongoing epidemic, we are doing Day Camp online this year. However all the usual fare will still be there. Children will still participate in small groups (known as Tribes). Campers will still enjoy hands-on craft activities in the Artisan markets. Street theater dramas will still bring to life the Good News of God's great gift in the person of Jesus Christ. And each day will still end with games and group worship.
This year's theme is The Great Adventure and will follow the story of Paul's Shipwreck from Acts 27-28. We will be focusing on the adventure of following Jesus each day, even during a quarantine.
Junior High and High School Students
Junior High Students (going into grades 7-8) and High School Students (going into grades 9-12 and 2020 graduates) can participate on a Ministry Team that serves the younger campers. However due to the modified format there will be less opportunities to serve than usual. This year Junior and High Schoolers can serve as Tribe Assistants, Drama Performers, and Worship Leaders.
To make day camp work well, we need adult helpers in many roles both before and during camp.
Normally we charge a material fee, however for online Day Camp there will not be a fee. We will be offering pre-packaged boxes of art and game supplies that will be used throughout the week as an elective purchase. When you register you will have the option to add on one of these boxes. The items offered in these supply boxes will be common household items. This is the supply list you will need for the crafts. Boxes will contain craft supplies and game items.
