Camp Zoom

Camp Zoom is a high-energy camp designed for kids 4 years old to those entering 1st grade in the fall and is located at Elmbrook Church in Brookfield.

 We are a faith based all-day program, held weekdays from 9 am to 3:30 pm. Each day we will gather for bible stories, games, large group worship, and fun! But that’s not all… each week will also feature a  Bounce House Day, Hot Dog Day, and Water Day. 

Camp ZOOM 2019:

Kiki & Lou and the Mission to Block Planet

 

 

Are you ready for an adventure that is out of this world? Kiki and Lou have jumped in their rocket and are taking off on their way to the distant and mysterious Block Planet. Join our heroes alongside their robot dog, Rover, as they blast past Pluto, dodge asteroids, ride shooting stars and ultimately complete their amazing, intergalactic mission.

Activity Groups

Your camper will be able to choose an activity group per week to participate in during Camp Zoom! 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 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.
