Camp Vertical 2020:

Guacamole and the Unlikely Adventures of Slothish Discovery

 

Ay caramba! Guacamole the sloth is lost! To make matters worse, he has no recollection of where he came from or how he got here. All he does know was it was slow… very slow.  On the streets of Antigua, Mariachi, a brave and stubborn Llama comes upon our sluggish amigo and reluctantly agrees to guide Gucamole back to his home in exchange for the “Hidden Treasures of the Canopy.”  The dos amigos will scale the mountains, explore beyond the ruins and venture through the rivers, all at sloth’s pace. Will Mariachi be patient enough to help his new friend find his way home? Can Guacamole move any faster? Grab a map, your explorer’s gear and join us this summer for una adventura buenisima!

Camp 2020 Weeks-
     Lake Country Campus

Trying to Decide?

You can print an activity options worksheet for your camper to help them plan out their summer!  Don't forget to plan an alternate activity in case your first choice fills quickly.

Your camper will be able to choose one activity group per week to participate in during Camp Vertical! We have lots of fun planned in all of our groups – you won’t be disappointed! Sign up quickly as space is limited in all of our activity groups. 

(Please Note: the activities below only indicate the weeks each activity is offered. It does not show which weeks are still available. You are able to view open activity groups by logging into your account.) 

Why doesn’t Camp Vertical have a friend request option?

When a child signs up for Camp Vertical, they are also choosing an activity group to be a part of.  When kids are split into groups, they will be split by activity group.  To ensure that friends will be together, they should be signed up for the same activity group.  

 

What does a typical day at Camp Vertical look like?

Each morning the kids will compete in all camp games for snow cone points. After the game is finished kids are dismissed to their activity groups for the rest of the morning. At noon all kids come to the plaza for lunch. (On a rain day we move lunch inside to the gym). After lunch kids are brought inside for worship, puppets, and large group teaching. Next, kids break up into small groups to talk about the large group time. After small group the children spend the rest of the afternoon in their activity groups. Around 3:15 we gather all of the kids together to share cheers about their day. Fridays are special because at 3:00pm we have a parent show to demonstrate all the fun activities the children did throughout the week.

Why doesn’t Camp Zoom have a friend request option?

When a child signs up for Camp Zoom, they are also choosing an activity group to be a part of.   When kids are split into groups, they will be split by activity group.  To ensure that friends will be together all day long, they should be signed up for the same activity group.

What does a typical day at Camp Zoom look like?

Camp Zoom check-in begins at 9:00.  During check-in kids have outdoor free-time play where they can choose from many different activities.  During check-in some of our leaders are assigned to areas, while others are moving around, greeting kids and getting them involved. After check-in we gather the kids inside for our all camp cheer and quest of the day to earn the ever popular snow cone points! From there the kids break into their activity groups for themed activities and outdoor time.  Our high-energy large group includes worship, bible stories and our favorite friends, Kiki and Lou!  After lunch and some free-time play (like recess) the kids move inside for some quiet time. Quiet time is followed by all-camp games, small group time, and more time in their activity groups.

Please note:  Though we do provide quiet time following lunch at Camp Zoom (such as a short movie or stories), we do not provide a nap time for our youngest campers.  We also ask that all campers attending Camp Zoom be fully potty trained before registering for camp.  All campers must be age 4 to attend.
