Do I have to be a member of Word Tabernacle Church in order to participate? Absolutely not! This service is available to the community!

We will also have trained security on campus throughout the day.
What will students do all day? Students will participate in "Day Camp" style activities including academic enrichment, recreation, arts and crafts, character and spiritual development, "rest and relax" free time, and becoming friends with one another!
What is the age range of campers who are allowed? KIDS camp is for students who are currently enrolled in kindergarten through fifth grade ONLY.
Is there a deadline for registration Yes. There are two existing deadlines.
Our first limitation is based on capacity. Registration will close when we have reached our maximum capacity based on fire codes and counselor to student ratio. This could be on Saturday or it could be on Monday. There is no true way to know when this will occur. It is based on how quickly families register.
Our second deadline will be Monday, May 14, 2018 at 5:00pm. This will give us enough time to train volunteers and prepare adequately prepare for the student population that will come. If registration closes before this time, it is because we have reached our capacity. Once this occurs there is nothing we can do.
