Children will once again have the opportunity to participate in a play-based thematic camp through Geist Christian Church.
“Each camp incorporates math, science and language skills into a fun day of indoor and outdoor hands-on activities,” Geist Christian Church Weekday Ministries Assistant Director Paula Mager said. “Some of the camps we are offering this year are fun and fitness, camping, creative arts, dinosaurs, cooking, pirates and princesses.”
There are 12 camps for children ages 3 to kindergarten age. There also are four different camps for Camp Quest for students in first through sixth grade. In Camp Quest, there is a nature camp, a creative arts camp, a space camp and a STEAM, or science, technology, engineering, arts and math, camp.
All camps are $90 per child, and each camp runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday beginning June 7. The last week of camp begins Aug. 16.
Mager said there is no registration deadline, and all camps are first come, first served.
“This year, I feel like they’re filling up a little quicker than last year because (space is) limited,” Mager said.
Geist Christian Church did offer summer camps last year, but the camps didn’t start until mid-summer because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s just a great way for kids to socialize now since interaction has been limited (at school),” Mager said. “Now, more than ever, it’s just great for kids to have that social interaction.”
Geist Christian Church has offered summer camps for 25 years. Most camps will take place at both Geist Christian Church campuses, but a schedule of which themes are at which campus will be on the church’s website. For more or to register, visit geistwdm.org.
