Summer living is easy when your child
is a happy FLCP camper!
Summer Day Camp Program (entering Grades 1-8)
Cultivating a Sense of Fellowship, Spirituality and Leadership
With an emphasis on building strong friendships, a sense of leadership and a connection to community in the spirit of Jesus, the FLCP summer day camp provides children with individualized, diverse and fun camp experience. It offers families a safe, creative and educational experience through a diverse program with trained counselors.
Qualified and Experienced Counselors
Many staff members have worked in the summer day camp for more than five years and have trained in the CIT program at First Lutheran; they are selected for their experience, training and knowledge in the fields of camping, education and youth leadership. Staff is carefully screened for employment and certified in First Aid, CPR and DHHS water safety. A low counselor to camper ratio allows for a more individualized experience for the campers.
Holistic Approach to Leadership, Variety and Fun!
Older campers and CIT members are involved in leadership learning like planning and implementing camp-wide activities and events while younger campers get variety in programming including hiking, games, crafts, nature study, swimming, sports, bible learning and the arts. In addition to normally scheduled camper activities, each week of camp will also have its own theme and field trip that will serve to enhance a fun camper experience.
Programs Day Camp (entering Grades 1 – 8)
Campers are grouped by age to enjoy group and camp-wide activities, which include: music, drama, arts, sports, games, crafts, nature, dance, and video production.
CIT Program (entering Grade 9 or higher)
The CIT is a leadership-training program offered to a limited number of youth ages 14 & 15. This is an opportunity for youth to learn what it takes to be an effective camp counselor. In this program camp trainees learn to plan, implement and lead activities, games and worship. Please contact us for more information.
