Traders Point Christian Schools is now accepting registration for a variety of camps designed for students ages 3 through eighth grade. Anyone from the community can register for the camps.
“As of right now, we have 120 students registered from over 20 different local schools,” TCPS Director of Constituent Relations Dawn Gilbert said. “Our camps are age-specific, so there are (age) 3 through pre-K, K through fourth and fifth through eighth, which are primarily off-site attending water parks and outside field trips.”
TPCS offers chapel every day at 8:30 a.m., and it is open for the families of campers to attend. There are a variety of morning and afternoon camps, and Gilbert said sometimes families choose a morning and an afternoon camp to create a full-day camp. Morning camps are 9 a.m. to noon and afternoon camps are 1 to 4 p.m.
“It’s very customized to what the student is interested in,” Gilbert said. “There are areas like STEM, American Girl, superheroes, field trips and water parks.”
In total, there are 65 camps. There is a 10 to 1 ratio of campers to staff members.
Camps run for a week and start June 7. The last day of camp is July 16. Registrations are accepted until camps are full, and Gilbert said camps do fill quickly. Camps vary from $140 to $200 a week depending on the camp. Snacks are provided, but students must bring their lunch if they’re attending a morning and afternoon camp. Campers also will receive take-home activities.
“The camps are really just an extension of our mission, which is to challenge and educate students in the framework of a biblical worldview,” Gilbert said. “We looked at this as another opportunity to meet students in our community.”
Families will have the opportunity to tour the TPCS campus if they sign up for a camp. For more or to register, visit tpcs.org.
