QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How do you accept payment? Families may pay in person! We accept cash, check, and money order! Money must be paid the Friday BEFORE the week of camp/academy for which the family is paying. This helps us solidify meals, materials, and other details which rely on knowing the amount of campers and having the money to cover the various costs.
The registration fee of $15 must also be paid in order to complete registration.
Your first week must also be paid for before your child can be a part of the camp/academy. Online payments would require an extra processing fee so we will be doing currency-exchange payments in person. Checks can be made out to Word Tabernacle Church. Please put your name and your child's name in the memo line. Money orders, cashier's checks, and cash are also accepted. Payments can be brought to the church and given to administration or directly to Ayona Cooper. Her contact information is listed above.
Is transportation provided to and from camp? No, transportation to and from Word Tabernacle Church is not provided. Summer Programming is only available for students who are brought to and picked up from the facility.
Does the Church offer Sponsorships/Scholarships? Summer Programs are designed to pay for itself. WTC does not make any money off of the program. The budget is set to the least amount of money that is needed in order to provide quality care and an enriching experience. We do understand financial struggles and hope that we can work with you so that your child can have a great camp experience! Contact one of the camp administrators for more information.
May I do "day of" registration? Camp payments are due the Friday before your camper is enrolled so that we can ensure we have enough supplies, and food for all students. Exceptions may be made in case of emergency or special circumstances.
Are Meals Provided? Yes. Breakfast will be a "light breakfast". Feel free to feed your child before they arrive. A complete lunch will be provided as well as a snack.
Do I have to be a member of Word Tabernacle Church in order to participate? Absolutely not! This service is available to the community!
Are counselors vetted? Yes! Safety is a HUGE focus! All counselors who will work with students will have a background check before they are allowed to participate. All volunteers must have a reference in order to be accepted.
What is security like? WTC has live and active security cameras in every room and hallway that will be occupied by students. Exterior doors will remain locked throughout the entire day while students are on campus. Lower grades will also be in classes down a locked hall that is only accessible through security badge. 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, projects, character, spiritual development, "rest and relax" free time, and becoming friends with one another! Families will have a schedule of the day and a weekly focus newsletter sent home and uploaded to the summer camp website so that you can be as informed as possible!
What is the age range of campers who are allowed? KIDS camp is for students who are rising kindergarten students-rising sixth graders, and Summer Academy is for rising seventh-rising twelfth graders.
Is there a deadline for registration? KIDS Camp has a continual enrollment until capacity is reached. This allows parents who need all summer care or just one week of care to have their needs met! Summer Academy has a 15 student limit. Slots fill up fast so make sure you register and pay for your camper as soon as possible! Once capacity is reached for the summer programs students will be added to a waitlist in case there is a spot that becomes available.
Is early pick up or late drop off available? Early Drop of and late pick up is available for KIDS Camp ONLY and costs $5 for every 30 minutes. The earliest early drop off is 7:00 am, and the latest late pick up is 6:00 pm.
What is Summer Academy? Summer Academy is a summer pilot program for older students, from rising seventh to rising twelfth graders. Spaces are limited because this is a pilot to test a new strategy for summer enrichment. Summer Academy will be a project based and exploratory learning environments for students to gain new skills, and build upon skills they already have. This summer students will participate in learning coding and foreign language. If the program goes well this summer we will plan for it's expansion next summer!
