At Grace Church Summer Day Camp, your kids will spend the summer having fun and making memories! The days will be packed with games, crafts, activities, local outings (including trips to the Kutztown Pool and Park), daily Bible time, and weekly themes. Our trained and background-checked staff will help to ensure a positive and safe environment for your kids. Camp is available for all kids who are entering kindergarten through sixth grade.

Check-In and Check-Out

Check-In will begin at 8:00am each day. An adult must sign in each kid in the foyer of the church, entering upon the front doors. 

Check-Out begins at 3:45pm. We do require that all kids are picked up no later than 5pm. If you need to pick your child up earlier in the day, please notify the staff at check-in so that we will have your child back at the church. We require an adult that is listed on the Authorized Child Pick-Up to present a photo ID to sign out campers. Please note that if the adult is not listed on the Authorized Child Pick-Up, we cannot release the camper to them.

Cost

Early Registration: $130/week per child, or $30/day per child. We are offering a 20% discount for each additional child in the family. The weekly cost is $150/week per child after May 1st. Because of camp capacity, a $30 non-refundable deposit is required per child per week to lock in your spot. (If you cancel at least two weeks prior to your reserved week, we will refund you all but the $30 deposit if you have made your payment.) All daily rate children require a $10 non-refundable deposit per day (with the same refund policy).

The deposits will be deducted from weekly/daily balances. Remaining weekly/daily balances are due by the Friday prior to each week of camp. We accept online payment, cash, or checks made payable to Grace Church.

There will be additional costs for outings. We will be going to the pool 3 days a week, so children should have a Kutztown Pool Pass or bring money each day for the pool.
