SUMMER CAMP 2020 INFORMATION & REGISTRATION:

At this time, we are taking enrollments for Summer Camp 2020. We are limited on numbers for our in person Summer Camp enrollments, due to State guidance and regulations so Camp will fill quickly. Be sure to sign up before we are full! Unfortunately, we will not be allowed to accept drop in students, so if you would like your child to attend, enrollment will need to take place ahead of time. We are also offering Virtual Learning Support. Here are our current summer options:

  • FCS Summer Camp-His Victory is Yours (Pre-K through Grade 8): Middle School students can participate in all activities, but are also given the opportunity to become camp leaders/counselors.
  • Virtual Learning-Kindergarten or 1st Grade
  • Virtual Learning-2nd or 3rd Grade
  • Virtual Learning-4th or 5th Grade
  • Virtual Learning-6th-8th Grade
  • High School credit completion or Support (Virtual)

We are excited to offer affordable Summer Camp/Sessions to all families!  Fellowship Christian School provides weekly or monthly enrollment, allowing families to register for what fits their summer needs/wants. If you are interested in attending, please complete our enrollment form (linked here).  Completing the Summer Enrollment form & paying the non-refundable Summer Camp fee will obligate you for the Camp you sign up for (due to limited space and availability). Please do fill this form out if you would like to have your child attend any of our Summer offerings (as well as the Summer Camp Release Forms).

About Camp

This summer we are continuing to offer our hands on and exciting STEAM + B Camp Experience! 

Prepare for take-off for a stimulating launch through the worlds of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) AND OF COURSE Bible (B).

Students have the opportunity to discover and experience God’s design through interactive, inquiry-based learning experiences created to help enhance their problem solving and critical thinking skills.

This summer’s theme is “His Victory is Yours.”

Each week, students will dig into the Word and be reminded of and taught of who the Lord has made them to be. Each week will be a Biblical characteristic from this theme, including Bravery, Wisdom, Strength, Perseverance, Trustworthiness and Love. All of these will also be paired with a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) activity/learning, to keep the kids engaged in some God breathed science, math and engineering.

This summer, the kids are also earning weekly merit patches, to add to their Summer Camp hats (we provide & they decorate)!

Each week, you can expect your kids to be fully engulfed into God’s creation and His wisdom, equipping His children and reminding them of who they are in Christ. They will learn to display and practice displaying all of the Biblical characteristics they learn about each week. Our hope and prayer is that this instills in them a deeper love for the Lord as well and gives them the courage they need to stand firm for God, in this world, and to always remember who God says they are. Each week also includes:

  • Weekly game/obstacle
  • Weekly challenge/build/activity
  • Daily Biblical connection
  • Weekly field trips (if we are able to do so given COVID 19 restrictions-not occurring during Phase 2)

Who May Attend

STEAM + B camp is open to any student entering grades PK – 8th* in the 2020-2021 school year. 9th- 12th grade students may volunteer at a discounted rate.  

 

What to Bring

Children who attend the camp should wear comfortable clothing that is suitable for hands on projects and outdoor play. Shorts and jeans are appropriate for most camp activities, as well as tennis shoes and socks. Please, no flip flops or sandals. Some camp activities may require special apparel (field trip tee shirt) or supplies.  On those days, parents will be notified as to what the student needs to wear. All campers should have an extra pair of clothes, in case they ever need to change.

2020 Summer Camp: Summer Camp students will be required to have a quick temperature screening each morning before camp. If students have shown any signs of illness, they are not allowed to attend camp. Students will also be washing their hands quite often, so you may want to pack some personal hand lotion in your child’s backpack. We are directed to keep all individual student supplies separate, so each student will have their own cubby with supplies and their own personal items.

Meals

Sack lunches and 2 snacks will need to be provided by families. The food should not require preparation (they should be ready to eat foods). No food is allowed to be shared so please make sure each child has their own lunch (even if they are in the same family). Lunches and student belongings are placed in their specific cubby.

Groups

Summer Camp takes place at Fellowship Christian School. For the 2020 Summer Camp, we are allowed to host up to four groups of 9. All groups will follow the same basic schedule, but in different, large classroom  and outdoor spaces. We will not be using playground equipment at this time, but do have plenty of recess equipment for each group (to include soccer, basketball, four square and many others). At no point in time are these groups allowed to combine or change for the week.

Drop Off/Pick Up

No adults, including parents/guardians and vendors are allowed inside the school. We are only allowed to have 9 total people in a contact group at once.

Parents will bring their campers to the designated health screen area (back door), where campers will have their temperature taken (via handless/touchless, mounted thermometer). Anyone with a temperature of 100 or higher will not be allowed to remain on campus.

Campers, parents and staff/Jr. Leaders older than 7 will have to wear a face mask all day, except when eating or outside.

Cleaning

All student supplies will be kept in individual cubbies and separated from each other. They will not be mixed. Toys and classroom materials will be sanitized daily.

What if there is a Diagnosis or Exposure to COVID-19?

If you or your child has experienced a diagnosis or exposure to COVID-19, it must be reported to Fellowship Christian School administration right away (email: FellowshipChristianSchools@gmail.com). FCS will notify all parents/guardians and staff within 4 hours. FCS will be closed for 5 days for sanitation (this will include weekend days).

Complete registration online.

If you have questions regarding registration, please contact us at:

  • P: (206) 486-5882 or
  • E: FellowshipChristianSchools@gmail.com.

Space is limited; registering before the June 1st deadline will secure your spot.

Tuition/Cost

As a ministry to families, the STEAM +B Camp at FCS is priced at a fraction of many similar programs. Our tuition is $100 for each week, which does not include field trips and camp registration fees. The one time camp fee of $50 must be paid in full by June 9, 2020.

Camp rates are not pro-rated based on attendance. Cancellations still require Camp payment; we can not transfer already scheduled weeks to other weeks (as a credit), due to the quick fill of Summer Camp this year and because we need to know well in advance what and how many supplies to purchase as well as how many Camp Teachers to have. We can not cancel any of those things with so little notice.

Our Mission

Our school continues to work hard to construct a safe, well-structured, and fun environment that allows young learners to explore STEAM+B subjects first-hand. Our ultimate goal is to expand their relationship with Christ, with confidence in who He is, academic knowledge of the Science God created, and problem-solving skills for the next generation of believers.
