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 for which the family is paying. This helps us solidify meals, trips, 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 of camp must also be paid for before your child can be a part of the camp. 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. KIDS Camp is only available for children who are brought to and picked up from the facility.
Does the Church offer camp Sponsorships/Scholarships? K.I.D.S. Camp is 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 students who will come to the KIDS Camp. 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. Youth 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 remained 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, arts and crafts, character and spiritual development, take trips, "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 potty-trained and enrolling in kindergarten in the Fall through those who have just completed fifth grade.
Is there a deadline for registration? KIDS Camp has a continual enrollment. This allows parents who need all summer care or just one week of care to have their needs met! Slots fill up fast so make sure you register and pay for your camper as soon as possible!
