During the summer camp season, we offer eight weeks of Day Camp for students in grades K through 5. Day Camp groups are led by a young adult, college-age counselor with a ratio of 6 campers to 1 counselor. We provide bus transportation to and from six different communities in the area. Daily bus runs take place for all eight weeks of camp from Greencastle, Chambersburg, Waynesboro, Shippensburg and two locations in Hagerstown. During week 5 of the season, there are also bus routes from Mercersburg and McConnellsburg.
Day Camp is an introductory summer camp experience that offers a taste of what a full overnight week of camp would be like. Day Campers do not get to experience all the activities that are available at overnight camp. It’s our desire to see students develop into overnight campers in order to receive the full benefits of what summer camp provides to children. For information on what those benefits are, click here.
Day campers start their day at 8:45 – 4:30 pm Monday – Friday. Lunch is provided at no additional cost for Day Campers attending summer camp at Joy El.
Our Day Camp activities this summer will include:
- Corcl boats
- Flying Squirrel
- Group Games
For campers attending multiple weeks of Day camp, our theme will be expanded so that lessons and verses learned differ from week to week. We will provide new scripture memory verses and groups specifically for returning campers. Plus take advantage of our multi-week discount! Bring a friend and you also receive a $10.00 campstore gift certificate.
Your Day camper will grow spiritually, emotionally and socially from:
- One-to-one interaction with caring, college-age counselors
- Counselor-led interactive Bible study times
- Small group discussions
- Positive, encouraging environment where strong friendships can develop and flourish
- 6-to-1 camper to counselor ratio
