Day Camp Grades K - 6th

What is Day Camp

Day Camp is a weekday camp experience unlike any other! Designed for children who are in Kindergarten through 6th grade, our Day Camp offers an on-site, fun-filled, Christ-centered program that's jam-packed with activities and opportunities to learn.

Special Considerations

We are unable to serve children with profound physical, medical, or psychological needs, or those with legal restrictions. Conditions which have the possibility to be accommodated are ADHD/ADD, Autism (including Asperger Syndrome), visual and hearing impairments, Down Syndrome, and other physical or developmental limitations.
Each participant needs to be able to walk a mile daily, use restrooms with NO assistance, have clear communication and must be able to participate fully in a large group (10-12 kids) with one counselor with no outside support.


Purpose

Every program at Black Diamond Camps operates under the same mission – "To inspire Christ-like change through outdoor adventure, authentic relationships and Biblical truth". A day in the life of a Day Camper might consist of rock climbing or Swimming, laughing out loud with new friends and exploring God's word alongside our energetic staff.

Philosophy

We believe that discipleship isn't just for grownups! Our goal is to pour the Gospel into the hearts of our Day Campers, so they'll be equipped to love and follow Jesus for a lifetime. We pray that our Day Campers will want to take the Good News outside the gates of Black Diamond Camps and share it with the world.

What to Expect

To make sure your child doesn't miss a minute of fun, we encourage you to drop them off at at Rattle Snake Ridge, located at Black Diamond Camps, at 9am every day. **Transportation is available, and those drop off times will be communicated** Your child will begin his or her journey by meeting their group and counselors before setting off on a day of adventure, relationships and truth! Lunch will be provided by camp, but sack lunches are more than welcome too! Pick up will be at 4:15p.m. from Black Diamond Camps, unless you have chosen camp transportation.
