List of 14 items.

  • Where is the camp located?

    Camp takes place at Calvary Day School (4625 Waters Ave Savannah, GA 31404)
  • What age does my child need to be to attend camp?

    The camp divides campers into grouped camps by age and grade completed by summer, beginning with kids who have completed Kindergarten to students who have just completed their 5th grade of school. 
  • What is the spiritual emphasis of the camp?

    Our mission is to build strong character in the lives of young people. We focus on creating a positive, Christian environment where our campers can have fun, make friends, and learn more about God. Through daily Bible reading, music, prayer, and amazing games, we openly and respectfully expose campers to the Gospel - God’s plan to rescue and restore a relationship with us through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. 

    Two of our biggest values are truth and love, and as a result, we respect each individual camper’s right to make their own decisions regarding important spiritual matters. Each staff member is a follower of Jesus Christ and is carefully selected and equipped to handle the integration of all aspects of your child’s camp experience with great care.
  • What should my child bring to camp?

    Campers should wear comfortable shoes and clothing that they can play and get messy in, this includes: tennis shoes (no sandals, Chaco’s, Crocs, Heelys, or flip-flops), t-shirt, and shorts. (Short shorts or spaghetti straps are not allowed.)

    Your child will need a bag labeled with his/her name containing:
    • A refillable water bottle
    • Lunch in an insulated lunch box. No nut products allowed.
    • Modest bathing suit (one piece for girls) and towel
    • Canteen money (optional, no more than a couple of dollars)
    • Hand sanitizer
    • Face mask/covering, if desired
    • Sunscreen (apply before camp, too) and bug spray, if desired
    Note: According to EPA Sunwise Program standards, each child will need to have at least 8 oz. of sunscreen to apply during a typical week of camp. We recommend spray sunscreen for easy application.
  • What are the camp hours?

    Drop-off is from 8:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. and pick-up is from 4:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

    We offer extended hours for an additional charge, giving parents the opportunity to drop off their child beginning at 7:30 a.m. and pick up their camper as late as 5:30 p.m.

    What is your late drop off policy? 
    Regular drop-off is from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Campers that are dropped off after 9:00 a.m. should be brought to the church office inside the main entrance. No advance notice is necessary.
  • How do I schedule an early pick-up for my child?

    We have a virtual form for all of your early pick-up needs.
  • Can my child attend a partial week of camp?

    You are welcome to register your child for a week of camp even if he/she will only be able to attend part of that week; however, we do not prorate for partially attended weeks of camp. Camp is only offered at a weekly rate.
  • Do I register my child based on the grade last completed or the grade they are going into?

    Register your child based on the grade last completed.
  • Can I cancel a registration?

    All campers must pay a one-time, non-refundable $50 registration fee. This fee covers the cancellation and change fees that we used to charge, and it also supports the administrative work necessary for our registration process.

    You can make a cancellation by emailing Hannah Hunter at hhunter@calvarydayschool.com. The cancellation deadline is 10 days prior to the week of attendance. No refunds will be given after this time unless a doctor's note is provided.
  • Can I change my child’s specialities?

    The deadline to change your specialty or week is 10 days prior to the week of attendance.
    You can make a change request by emailing Hannah Hunter at hhunter@calvarydayschool.com.
  • What is your policy on behavior problems?

    Parents will be contacted if there is a continuous problem of non-participation, bullying, or behavior that is disrespectful to fellow campers or camp staff. Parents will be notified after the camper has been through the following disciplinary process: warning, timeout (5-10 minutes), sit out of an activity, sent to leadership.
    If issues continue after parents have been contacted, the camper may be sent home for the remainder of the week.
  • Does my child need medical insurance to attend camp?

    Yes, in your registration please fill out the insurance and primary care physician information for your child.
    This information will allow us to know how to best care for your child in the case of an emergency where we are unable to reach you.
  • Does my child need to bring his/her own lunch each day?

    Lunch will be provided for the week of camp. If you do choose to send your child with a lunch, we ask that all campers bring lunch in an insulated lunchbox - and no nuts please!

    Campers are welcome to bring $1 to $5 to purchase snacks from the canteen if desired. Canteen may not be offered every day.
  • Are campers allowed to bring food containing peanuts or other nuts?

    There is a no-nut policy for any food items brought to camp. Any lunch item containing nuts or nut products of any kind discovered by your child’s counselor will be sent back home with the camper. For the safety of our campers, please do not send your child to camp with any nut products.

    We desire lunch areas to be safe for campers with nut allergies, but there is no formal inspection of lunches, snacks, or product labels that would guarantee there are no nut products at camp.
