2021 Summer Camps

Sign up for 2021 Lylewood Christian Summer Camps NOW!   PLEASE NOTICE THE DATE CHANGE.  Middle/High week and Combo week were swapped. 

Summer Camp News and Date Change: This past year has been difficult for many of us. Having to shift to “virtual camp” only sessions in 2020 was a very difficult decision for the board to make.  We are so excited that we will be able to have normal camp sessions for the summer of 2021!  We are always looking to improve the experience for each of our campers. Having lots of campers on the premises is one of the best ways to do that. To that end, we have decided to make a few changes for this summer’s sessions, including a date change. Here are all the details!   

Elementary Week: June 13-18, 2021
This session is for children who have just finished 2nd, 3rd or 4th grade. This is always a great week and typically has lots of campers. Jason Allison and Dave Morgan will be directing this year so you can expect lots of fun and, more importantly, some great lessons about our Lord. 

Middle/High Week:  June 20-25, 2021 (date changed)
By combining our middle school week and our high school week, we are expecting to have lots of campers!  Aaron Johnson will be the director for this week so you can expect amazing activities and wonderful lessons from God’s word. This week is open to anyone just finishing 5th through 12th grades.

Combo Week: June 27-July 2, 2021 (date changed)
We are introducing a new concept this year and we are calling it “Combo Week.” This week is open to any one who has just finished 2nd through 12th grades. This will give our campers who cannot attend their regularly scheduled week another opportunity so they won’t miss out on camp!  Also, for those of you who love Lylewood, you will have the chance to attend Combo Week along with your other scheduled week. That’s right!  You can come to Lylewood for TWO WEEKS this summerJason Allison will be directing this week.  We will separate campers by age groups for cabins and study groups, but will all come together for devotionals, meals, etc. We hope this will give our older campers the chance to shine as examples to the younger ones.

We hope your child will be able to come spend a week (or two) with us at Lylewood this summer. Camp starts each of these weeks on Sunday afternoon and ends Friday afternoon. The camper fee covers all food and even a camp t-shirt!  No extra money is needed.

COVID-19 Safety Plan

In order for parents and campers to make an informed decision about camp attendance during the COVID pandemic, we want to share the COVID-19 safety plan that Lylewood Christian Camp has adopted. We have attempted to balance some reasonable precautions with the functional reality of managing a youth summer camp.
Covid Screening Questionnaire: All campers and volunteers will be required to answer these COVID screening questions within 24 hours prior to the first day of camp so that we do not bring any known COVID risks to camp.
Masks:  We will NOT be requiring masks. There are currently not any masking mandates in Stewart or Montgomery Counties. Having said that, anyone is obviously welcomed to wear a mask if they individually would like to do so.
Vaccine: We are encouraging, especially adults, at camp to be vaccinated.
Distancing: We will attempt some sensible social distancing. This includes items like every-other-chair spacing when eating and singing as well as head-to-toe arrangements in cabin bunks. Even with these easy spacing practices, there will be camp activities like free play, games, and swimming where close, in-person contacts will occur.
Outdoors: Weather permitting, we will keep a majority of activities outdoors.
Hand cleaning: We’ll encourage hand sanitizer and hand washing.
Illness: Counselors & Nurse will inquire of any symptoms which may be COVID-related that may be developed by anyone during camp and respond accordingly.
After Camp Communications: We will keep a contact list from camper registrations. If any camper family were to have a positive COVID test shortly after camp, we’d ask that they let us know and we’ll be able to quickly notify other campers and volunteers of the exposure potential. 

We hope this plan demonstrates some reasonable precautions, but in balance with being able to provide a meaningful camp experience with memories and impact that last well beyond the week of camp.
