Camp is for kids who have completed grades K-8. 

Powder Springs, GA: Camp is for completed K-5th graders.

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.

*One-Eight will not be available to campers in Powder Springs, GA or Indian Trail, NC.

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!

Powder Springs, GA: We will have a team of 30+ volunteers to accommodate campers with special needs. We can't promise that your camper will have their own shadow, but please communicate with your church host to see if a suitable volunteer is available. These will be handled on a case by case basis. 

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 you this summer! If you cancel your reservation more than 30 days prior to the camp start date, you will be refunded the total of all payments made minus the $50 non-refundable deposit. If you cancel your reservation less than 30 days prior to the camp start date, you will be refunded half the amount of payments made minus the $50 non-refundable 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.
