Day Camp

Adventure

Ideal for: Kids!      |      Ages: 5 – 12      |      Dates: Weekly from June 24th – Aug 30th, 2019

Safe, Memorable, Engaging Adventure.

Available for all local families, all summer long!

Day camp shouldn’t be just babysitting. It should be fun! Our Christ-centered program is filled with safe, action-packed activities and learning experiences that will engage and excite your kids!

There’s no other day camp quite like this!

You know the sort of things your kids always want to go do? Well, we’ve got them! And your kids will need more than a day to take in everything Black Diamond Camps has to offer, but that’s OK, we’d love to have them back day after day – all summer if they want.  Days spent here will be days to remember. Amazing days that leave kids with a smile and hungry for more adventure.

At Black Diamond Day Camp, kids create lifelong memories as they encounter God’s creation, God’s word, and embark on the adventures and memories of a lifetime. Because they’re able to go home at the end of the day, it’s a great way to ease kids into the camp experience. New Friends. Real Adventures. God’s Truth. Makes you wanna shout “Hallelujah”!

Bring A Friend

Bring a new friend to Day Camp that hasn’t been here before and you’ll get 15% off! We’ll even throw in a free Squirrel Bag to make sure you have the latest and greatest camp swag!

Arrow TAG

We are hunters, and adventure is our game. We are unstoppable, and you are our prey. Take aim and bring ‘em down, before they get you!

Arts & Crafts

Got a creative brain? That's awesome! Whether it's a custom birdhouse, a crazy kaleidoscope, or a colorful friendship bracelet, we've got all sorts of materials for you to craft your best work!

Bouldering Wall

You may only be a few feet off the ground, but that doesn’t make it easy. You’ll need balance, footwork, and strategy to beat our bouldering wall!

Camp Store

Maybe you want the latest shirt, or a new comfy hoodie. Maybe you need a bigger coffee mug, or a fresh new water bottle to cover with stickers. Whatever the occasion, this stuff is the best!

Blacklight Dodgeball

Dodgeball is better when you glow in the dark...

Drift Trikes

Fuzzy wristbands, Keds, and sliding sideways on a Big Wheel made for some serious street cred back in the day. Well, we've amped it up.

Field Games

Guaranteed to break the ice. This is camp-olympics! From scavenger hunts to more inventive contests, you're sure to make a few new friends along the way.

Ga-Ga Ball

Ga-ga wha? Trust us, it's not for babies. Part dodge ball, part tag and part king of the hill, it takes action to another level. Stay with it. Rule the octagon!

Hiking

Get outside and into the beautiful nature God created for us. There are miles of trails through our dense forest that any adventurer will enjoy!

Inflatables

We're not just full of hot air when we say, "If it inflates, it's great!" Bounce through our collection of endless obstacles and feel your excitement balloon.

Giant Swing

Ever wonder what it’s like to fly through the trees? Harness up and get ready to soar!

Rappelling

Your heart pounds as you overcome your nerves and step off the edge. What were you thinking? Total focus. Step by step. Now you're down, confident. Again!

Sand Volleyball

Bring it on. Serve it up. Spike, slam, wham, attack - Let your competitive spirit take over. You'll need it. Dig, set, spin, spike! Leave the campfire for day's end.

Quick Zip

The high-flying thrill of our zip lines can be a lot. That's why we've developed a course that's just right for building confidence in our younger campers.

Tree Zipline

There’s nothing normal about this. You’re jumping out of a perfectly good tree. One of the biggest trees on camp, at that. Harness up, clip in, and get ready to fly!

Indoor Pool

It’s chilly outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t swim! Our heated, indoor pool is perfect for every season!

3D Climbing Wall

Because climbing regular holds was too easy. Climb the crane, or maybe the logging truck? Which path will you choose?

Indoor Rock Wall

Are you a climbing purist? Want to send it on a more traditional route? We’ve got you covered. Chalk up and hit the wall.

Siege Fort

An all out nerf war with team-based domination! Hold the point and survive!

Low Elements - Mountaintops

The floor is lava! Work together as a team to get everyone to safety in this group development challenge.

Low Elements - 3D Web

For those who thought our 2D web wasn’t enough of a challenge. This will test your group decision-making on a whole new level!

Low Elements - Labyrinth

Remember that game on your phone where you guide the ball through the maze? It’s that, life-sized!

Low Elements - 2D Web

You’ve got one goal: get to the other side. Your team has limited resources and just enough hands. Work together to figure out how to traverse the web with this group development challenge!

Lord's Steps

Explore high in the trees with this suspended walkway. Whatever you do, don’t look down!

Blacklight Mini Golf

All the perks of putt-putt, glowing in the dark! See how many strokes it takes you to complete this illuminated course!

9 Square

Four squares isn’t enough. Why not make it nine? Why not have it in the air? Let’s see how long you can hold the top spot.

Slingshots

These are no toys, but they are a lot of fun. We may not be slaying giants, but you will get good target practice. Take aim. Hold your breath. Steady. And...

BB Guns

BB guns are a lot of fun for beginners and expert shooters alike. Squeeze off a few pellets and plink some targets, and you'll see what we mean.

Creek

Come fish for some crawdads, or just relax and dip your toes in the water. Either way, you’re in nature and that’s pretty neat!

Playground

Sometimes you just need to kick back and swing for a little while.

Archery

Who can hit the bullseye first? Learn how to properly use a shortbow with this fun target practice!

Adventure Upgrades are a way for us to keep the cost of camp low for everyone while also offering extra adventures to those who want them. We offer one package for Day Camp: “Whitewater Rafting Trip“. See details below and if you would like to add it, just be sure and choose the option during the Sign Up process.

WHITEWATER RAFTING

It’s like navigating a torrent of liquid adrenaline while being yelled at to paddle harder, faster, this way and that – or else – you’re going swimming involuntarily. Suddenly the reason for the helmets and life jackets becomes crystal clear to you. This couldn’t be more fun!To add this to your camp experience, choose this option during the Sign Up process.

Additional Fee – $55 Per Person
