We’re bringing the high-end camp experience close to home.
A Remarkable One-Week Day Camp Experience
A Day Camp For Kids Completed Grades K-8
Every parent wants their child to have a great summer, but finding high-quality, local activities that you and your kids will love is difficult. Connect Camps is a one-week, day camp filled with non-stop fun, engaging activities, daily faith-based lessons, and the chance to make lasting friendships. It’s an unbelievable week that your child will never forget.
From secure check-in and check-out procedures, to the wide array of activities, every aspect of camp is carefully designed with top-notch quality and non-stop fun in mind.
Over 125 years of camp experience goes into training energetic, committed, and vetted college-aged staff, who truly love what they do: connecting with and encouraging your kids.
Christ-centered content is presented in engaging and interactive formats that help your kids leave camp with a deeper understanding of who Christ is and who they were made to be.

what to expect So, what did your kids do this summer?
We get that you want your child (and your whole family) to have a summer they’ll never forget! Here’s what each and every camper will experience at Connect Camps to ensure that happens:
Nonstop Fun & Active Play
Each fun-filled day is designed to keep your child engaged from drop off to pick up. There’s no sit-and-be-bored here. From group games to sport skills, kids stay active all day long.
Using inspiring Bible lessons intentionally chosen to be memorable and encouraging, kids leave camp with foundational truths to carry them through all of life’s adventures.
Sense of Belonging
Camp’s team-based environment and wide range of activities give your child a sense of belonging and a place to just be themselves.
New Friends for the Entire Family
Your child (and your whole family) have the chance to make new friendships in your community with families in the same stage of life.
Camp isn’t just fun — it’s remarkable! Your kids will come home with stories of what they experienced, leaving lasting memories for you and your kids. On the last day of camp, your entire family gets to jump in on the fun and experience the final session together.
You've got questions... Frequently Asked Questions
Camp is for kids who have completed grades K-8.
Registration includes two snacks per day, a camp t-shirt, and five days of camp — Monday to Thursday 7:45AM-5:00PM and Friday 7:45AM-3:30PM.
Each camper gets to choose a total of 6 skills for their week at camp! They will participate in 3 of their skills on Monday and Tuesday, and the other 3 on Wednesday and Thursday.
They will be given a list of 19 skills to choose from during registration!
Campers need to bring a lunch and water bottle. If they’re signed up for the "Get Messy" skill, they will also need a change of clothes. If you have any questions about our clothes-changing policy, please ask.
Snacks are included. Campers bring their own lunch or they may purchase lunch at camp (only offered at some locations). We also ask that you do not pack peanuts in any form for your campers.
We also ask that you please write your campers name on their lunches!
Your camper needs to wear comfy clothes (i.e. gym shorts and a t-shirt) that you don't mind getting a little messy. We also ask that your campers wear closed-toed shoes. Make sure to apply plenty of sunscreen as some of our activities and recreation will take place outdoors.
If they’re signed up for the "Get Messy" skill, they will also need a change of clothes. If you have any questions about our clothes-changing policy, please ask.
There is no early drop-off or late pickup. If you need to pick up your camper early for any reason, please make sure you do so before 4:20.
Each group, or what we call a "Pack," has around 18 kids. Local church volunteers and Connect Camps counselors team up to lead groups. This helps ensure a low 10:1 ratio of campers to adults.
We see camp as a great opportunity for your campers to make new friends in their age group. You can request for your camper to be in the same group as a friend in your registration under "special concerns," but we cannot make any guarantees.
All middle schoolers at Connect Camps are involved in One-Eight skill. This ultimate service opportunity is more than just a skill.
Named after Acts 1:8, you’ll learn what it means to serve others and be God’s witness both at home and in your community. Campers get the chance to leave campus and participate in a community service project during their skill time.
On Friday, you’re invited to attend the Closing Session for campers, parents, and church hosts. This special time allows campers and their parents to experience one last session together to wrap up the theme for the week!

On Friday, you’re invited to attend a closing session for campers, parents, and church hosts. This special time allows campers and their parents to experience one last session together to wrap up the theme for the week.
Check Out will take place at 2:00 pm before this closing session on Friday, that way you can take your camper home with you as soon as it's over at 3:30 pm.
At the end of each day, we’ll send your camper home with some great questions and topics to continue the conversation about what they learned at camp around your dinner table.
We do not have specific programming for campers with special needs.
We are happy to provide a volunteer to serve as a shadow if this is something you feel is necessary for your camper. Please let us know in advance if this is something you need so we can work with your church host to find the best volunteer for your camper’s needs.
Unfortunately, if your child is not able to participate in camp activities, we won't be able to host them at camp. We want our campus to be a safe and fun environment for each camper!
Scholarships, or discounts, are given out by the church that is hosting your week of camp. If you have questions about who to get in contact with at your location, feel free to contact us at (706) 310-6055 and we will get you in touch with the right people.
We’ll miss seeing your kid at camp! If you cancel your reservation more than 30 days prior to your camper's arrival, you will be refunded the cost of camp minus the $50 non-refundable deposit. If you cancel your reservation less than 30 days prior to your camper’s arrival, you will be refunded half the cost of camp minus the $50 non-refundable deposit. Deposits and payments are not transferable between accounts (i.e. a different family), but can be transferred between campers within the same account. Even if your camper is sick, you will only be refunded half the cost of camp minus the $50 deposit.
Staff are recruited by trained campus representatives. Connect Camps also requires references from previous employers or local ministers. Additionally, each recruit submits to a thorough background check, one-on-one interview, and an extensive initial training process. Returning counselors are evaluated on their past summer’s performance. Connect Camps provides ongoing coaching and development with performance reviews, including reviews of the activities and small groups they lead.
