Camp is often the highlight of childhood summers and we want to make the most of it! Not only do we want campers to have fun in a safe environment, we want to expand their creativity, mature them in their Christian faith, and build lifelong relationships.
Camp will look a bit different this year but will remain a great place for your children to get outside and learn about Jesus. Please review the following information related to Covid and your child’s experience at Greenview this summer.
Campers should be free of fever, sickness, and exposure to someone with covid19 for a period of at least two weeks before the start of their week of camp.
When packing for camp, each camper should have a self-contained lunch in an insulated container if possible. There will be no coolers out to refill water bottles as in the past so please send a full water bottle (or two) along with your children! We will have extra bottles of water available for them when they run out but we won’t have the coolers out.
Please be aware that registration will be quite different than in previous years. Registration will be taking place in your cars in the driveway.
As you enter the camp from Chapel Lane you will be greeted in your car and directed to one of three drop off locations. You will use this same drive through location every day for drop off. You will complete registration while staying in the car. Temperatures will be checked at registration daily and those with a fever will be sent home. Only the campers will be allowed to get out of the vehicle. You will drop and pick up your camper from this location every day. Watch for new traffic patterns on the campgrounds.
You will need a completed medical form (which is attached), along with any medications (in original bottles), a packed lunch in an insulated container, and any balance due of your camp fee at that time. We are able to accept cash, check, paypal, or venmo.
We have grouped campers together based off of family units and requested carpooling groups. Which means it’s not based off of age like usual, but we hope this helps limit the exposure of each family throughout the week. I have attached the divided groups to this email. PLEASE REVIEW THIS and let me know if your children have friends or family attending. I began to divide family and friend units and color coding them. I will finalize these by the end of the week.
Registration is scheduled for 9:00 AM on Monday. We cannot register you before that time.
We have adjusted the camp schedule to eliminate large group activities and move most activities outdoors to minimize the enhanced risk that comes with being confined in close spaces. Campers are divided into a group of about 15-18 (including leaders) and will remain in contact with only those in their “pod” or group during the day. We are treating these pods as a family unit so that campers and staff will not be asked to wear a mask but are certainly free to do so.
Any camper who becomes sick or shows symptoms during the day will isolated in the new nurse’s station until parents can pick them up and take them home.
We have programmed scheduled breaks for hand washing and have scheduled increase cleaning in facilities, activity areas and common areas during the day.
We will be providing the afternoon snack for everyone instead of having a camp store this year. It will typically be a popsicle or watermelon or something like that. If you would like to pack a substitute snack for them in their lunch you are welcome to do so.
Unfortunately, this year there will be no overnight option on Thursday, no cookout for the kids for Friday lunch and no large group closing program. Each unit will do their own ‘closing ceremony’ at the end of the week with just their kids. Campers will receive their awards Friday prior to departure. Please congratulate them on their awards and ask them to recite any memory verses on the way home!
Overnight, or resident camp caters to kids who want the full experience of being away for a week at camp! Our Elementary Week is for grades 2-5, and Middle School Week is for grades 6-9. Bith weeks will run from 10 AM Monday to 8 PM Friday.
Day camp is perfect for kids who may not be available or ready for an overnight camp but still want to experience the fun of summer camp! The camp runs Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM. Day campers have the option to stay over on Thursday night to join in on the fun our camp at night has to offer.
