Merriwood Christian Camp offers a Lower Elementary Day Camp program (specifically designed for the rising 1st through 4th grader).

The Lower Elementary Day Camp is a great opportunity for children to begin experiencing summer camp! Throughout the week the campers will stay with their small groups. Each day consists of an interactive morning chapel (with childrens’ songs and a Bible lesson), pool time, four additional activity sessions, and canteen time. Throughout the week, the activity sessions include: hayrides, fishing, paddle boats, swimming, nature trail walks, kickball, craft times, playground, and more!

Rate Includes: Morning snack, lunch, take home crafts, tie dye t-shirt, and all the activities listed above.

Our capacity for this week is 88 girls (8 groups) and 88 boys (8 groups). Even though it’s a day camp program, the campers will have a “home base” cabin to house their backpack throughout the day, for down time after lunch, and for changing before and after pool time.

Arrival: Drop off Monday through Friday will be approximately between 8:30 and 8:45 am. Programming begins at 8:45 am. (No early arrivals please.)

Pick up: Pick up will be approximately 4;30 pm. More details about pick up will be provided as time nears.

Optional Friday Overnight: For rising 2nd graders through rising 4th graders, there is an optional overnight stay Friday night through Saturday morning. Programming continues from Friday at 4:30 pm through Saturday morning, pick up at 9:00 am in the gymnasium.  The additional cost for the overnight stay is TBD. The overnight stay includes games, supper Friday night, campfire, songs, cabin overnight experience, and breakfast Saturday morning. Pre-registration is available online during registration or online through Tuesday at midnight of their camp week. More details will be sent out by email to those registered during their camp week.
