Questions?

Click the number to see the answer to common questions:

1. What is a Nature Camp?

Nature Camp gives children a fun, educational and biblically grounded summer activity.  Each year a theme is chosen. Over the years we have explored water, trees, birds, rocks, sunlight, and more. Children have an innate curiosity about the world. Our program helps children develop awareness and wonder about God’s creation. Children will relate their discoveries of nature with the teaching of the Bible. As their sense of wonder correlates with scriptural truths, their worship and praise is directed towards God, the Creator. 

2. Is there anything I need to bring?

There is nothing your child is required to bring.  Water will be available throughout the day and a snack will be provided. We recommend outfitting your child as you would normally for time outdoors including putting on sunscreen, wearing sunglasses or a sun hat.

3. What if my child has allergies or special needs?

We do our best to accommodate allergies and special needs. We also welcome an adult aide to accompany your child if necessary. There is a place on the registration form to describe your needs and request a call from us before camp begins to discuss in more detail. The registration fee is fully refundable if an adequate accommodation cannot be made.

If you prefer, contact us to discuss your concerns prior to registration.

4. Are there scholarships available?

Yes! We are able to financially assist families who may need help affording the camp fee. Decisions are made on a case-by-case basis based on funds available. To discuss, please contact us or call Pastor Jim at 630-934-5003.
