In-Person Camp Questions

Who can participate in the in person camp experience?

Students in Preschool through 5th grade are invited to join us!

What steps are you taking to address COVID-19 precautions?

The safety and well-being of our students has always been and always will be our top priority.

You can rest assured knowing that CCGF is committed to provide a safe, clean environment.  All areas have been thoroughly disinfected and sanitized, and will be cleaned daily after campers leave.

We will also be doing our best to maintain safe distancing!

Do I need to pack a lunch for my camper?

No.  Our in person camp experience ends at 12:30 and we will not be taking a lunch break.

What about drinks and snacks?

Great question.  Each camper should bring a bottle of water with their name clearly marked on it.  We will not be utilizing water fountains or having snacks to prevent the spread of germs.

What should my child wear to camp?

Campers should wear their camp t-shirt that they will receive on the first day, shorts or pants, and shoes they can play in (sneakers or crocs are good options).

How many campers are you accepting for in person camp?

How many students we can have participate in camp really depends on the amount of volunteers we have signed up.  Just as we want to provide a clean environment for campers; we also want to provide a safe environment; which means making sure we have enough leaders.  If you love kids and want to help please be sure to sign up to volunteer!

In person camp is full now what?

When our in person camp fills you can still sign up for our virtual camp experience!  You can also email Bethany, the Kids Ministry Manager at braraigh@ccgf.org and ask to be put on the wait list for in person camp.  Please submit your name and phone number, along with the names and grades of the campers you are adding to the list.

My child would like to request to be placed in a group with a friend.

We know children like to be with their friends during camp.  Due to the nature of our camp this summer we are unable to accommodate friend requests.

What will the drop off process look like?

In order to comply with state and federal regulations our drop off process will be slightly different this summer.

Parents should walk their camper to the Wilson Hall entrance doors.  There you will be greeted by a staff member or volunteer who will check in your child via our iPad check in system.  You will be asked health screening questions daily at drop off.

Should a line form please maintain appropriate distancing from the person in front of you.

Your child will then be asked to sanitize their hands and escorted to their group by a staff member or volunteer.

Due to state and federal regulations parents are asked not to enter the building.

We ask for your grace and patience as the check in process may take longer than in previous years.

What will the pick up process look like?

In order to comply with state and federal regulations our pick up process will be slightly different this summer.

Parents should pick up their camper at the Wilson Hall entrance doors.  There you will be greeted by a staff member or volunteer who will ask for your name and the names of your campers.

As staff member or volunteer will pick up your child and return to you.

Due to state and federal regulations parents are asked not to enter the building.

We ask for your grace and patience as the check out process may take longer than in previous years.
