Summer Vacation is what every kid looks forward to throughout the school year. We were so sad to not be able to offer Camp Kids Place in 2020, but are excited for our 2021 relaunch! We know so many families and children are looking for a safe, and fun summer, and we can’t wait to deliver! We are planning to host 8 weeks of Camp Kids Place with various themes from June 21st through August 13th. Our goal is to make sure your summer is full of highlights with safety as our top priority!
Here’s a little of what we’ve planned for this summer…
Camp Kids Place is a ministry of Cherrydale Baptist Church in Arlington, Virginia, and we have the privilege of operating at the church’s fantastic facilities! With a wonderful gym, team rooms, our craft shop, a giant waterslide, and many thematic surprises along the way, we pack out our facilities for an awesome time all summer long. When it comes to activities in a Camp Kids Place summer, the obvious question is, “What more could a kid ask for?” At our Camp, we not only believe that we deliver the best, most creative camp experiences week in and week out, but we also teach biblical principles and seek to love each camper that walks through our doors like Christ!
This summer, we plan to utilize the outdoors as much as possible and will be taking the bus to various parks, fields, and hikes in the Arlington area! Our staff and counselors are excited to get outside and run after being inside so much this year, and we can’t wait to do that with all of our campers as well!
At camp we hire the best Staff and Counselors around. Every year, it is our staff that makes lasting memories with kids of Camp Kids Place. We look for Counselors and Staff with character of the utmost quality who follow Christ and whose lives and care for children and their peers are marked by integrity. Beyond that, our staff is highly trained in all manner of safety and childcare, carefully vetted with background checks and fingerprinting, and are equipped with tools to make camp the joyful place that it is year after year. Camp is like a big family encouraging and strengthening one another. We will do whatever it takes to make sure your child feels at home at Camp Kids Place and walk away with new friends and new experiences!
Our campers enjoy learning a lot as they have a great time. They go home feeling that they’ve spent the day with good friends who really care about them as individuals—as well as an important part of the group. It’s just the thing for kids enjoying their first camp experience as well as for “seasoned pros” who’ve been to camp before.
We’re planning everything carefully to make each week great. We will be opening registration this year in April! We can’t wait to see all of your smiling faces this summer. We’ve been waiting a longer time than usual for this reunion and we know it will be the sweetest one yet!
