Discovery- We learn… what is out there to be discovered…What is inside to be discovered!
It’s tough raising kids today…
In today’s culture it seems like everyone is making up their own definition of what’s right…and what’s wrong. How does a parent effectively guide her children through these times where so much is uncertain? How do you prepare your kids for a future where they will need to make some very difficult choices?
At Camp Loughridge, we understand how you feel. We know the frustration and we want to help. Camp Loughridge offers 8 weeks of summer day camp where kids get to be kids but more than that, they are in an environment, accompanied by a caring counselor where they can try new things, ask questions, and maybe discover some things about themselves that they’ve never known.
Camp Loughridge’s Summer Day Camp is a classic Christian summer camp experience in a day camp format with kids coming to camp from 9:00 in the morning and staying until 5:00 in the evening. This program puts kids outdoors to do the things they love to do: archery, arts & crafts, canoeing, challenge and ropes course elements, chapel, court sports and games, nature hikes, sports, field games, and swimming. In addition, we provide special programing for children with Autism through our Autism Inclusion program. For more information about how to apply for this program click here.
The theme for our 2018 summer camp program is “Who am I?” So many folks today are struggling with the very basic questions of who they are, why they were born, and what should they do. We know that you’ll never really know what to do until you know WHO you are! What a great lesson for all of us to learn… especially our children.
We want every child who comes to camp to be convinced of their value to God. We want them to know they’re special and unique, that they are God’s workmanship (Ephesians 2:10), that God has made them a new creature, not bound by their past (2 Corinthians 5:17). We want them to know that they’re more than conquerors (Romans 8:37) and what it means to be God’s “salt of the Earth” (Matthew 5:13). Ultimately we want every child to know they were born to be God’s very special light in a dark world (Matthew 5:14).
A typical day at the camp starts with a “Morning Rendezvous” gathering filled with music, fun, skits, songs and a story. Then we move into our activity classes like nature hikes, swimming, arts & crafts, archery and swimming supervised by certified and trained lifeguards. Camp Loughridge is a Christian camp dedicated to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with kids in a rustic outdoor setting. Our goal is to help children experience a living, loving relationship with God and His creation. Your camper’s days will be filled with opportunities to experience the beauty of God’s Creation and to HAVE FUN!
We’re excited to announce that our summer day camp experience is expanding! Beginning this summer, our classic summer day camp program is open for campers 6-15 years old. Campers may attend more than one session.
We do offer Early and Late Care. If you are interested you may register your child for Early Care from 7:30am to 8:30am and/or for Late Care, from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. Both are available for an additional fee. Space is limited. (Not available for the Autism Inclusion program)
We want every child who wants to come to have the chance to attend. That’s why we are very intentional every year to raise funds for camper scholarships. Thanks to our generous donors we have a healthy fund set aside for those families who need some help with their camper fee. To inquire about scholarships and to request an application simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
