Day Camp (entering grades 2 – 6)

All the fun of traditional summer camp!
School’s out and SAMBICA Day Camps have a mission: to help children discover their potential through God’s presence. Day Camp offers younger campers all the fun of traditional summer camp without the pressure of overnight stays. This week-long camp provides full days of activities with hot lunches provided in our dining hall. Thursday nights offer day campers an opportunity to camp out overnight at SAMBICA and enjoy a special dinner, event, and campfire.

Day Campers will enjoy age appropriate activities including: swimming, water toys, boating, archery, archery tag, kayaks, canoes, field inflatables, and more. Generally, campers will have swimming time each day and will go out on the boats twice during the week. Campers will be given the opportunity to try each of the other activities at various times during the week.

Each day, campers will also spend time doing Bible studies, singing, enjoying skits, and playing games in the Forum.

Age/Grade Level: Entering Grades 2 – 6
Schedule: Monday – Friday
Cost: $505 – $650

    Special Schedules

    If your child needs to miss any portion of their camp session, please notify the main office of your schedule as soon as possible. All late arrivals and early departures will take place in the main office. Notifying your child’s counselor of early pick up times will not ensure your child will be ready when you arrive; please call the main office at (425) 746-9110.

    Campers that arrive late or depart early will miss a portion of the camp program and will not be able to make up missed activities. Campers who arrive late Monday morning will miss being in the camp picture. Should you schedule a pick up for your child in the middle of an activity, they may need to miss the entire activity. In fairness to other campers, boats will not be brought back before the scheduled end time of each activity block.

    Please check with our registrar concerning the best time to pick up your child if they must leave early.
