June 6-9 and 27-30

The earth is the LORD's and the fullness thereof,

the world and those who dwell therein,

for he has founded it upon the seas

and established it upon the rivers.

Psalm 24:1-2

July 18-21

When I consider your heavens,

the work of your fingers,

the moon and the stars

which you have set in place,

What is man that you are mindful of him?

Or the son of man, that you take care of him?

Psalm 8:3-4

The Bible teaches us that God created everything. He hung the moon and stars in place. He established the earth and filled it with plants and animals. Our world is big, and we occupy only a minuscule part of it. Yet despite our relative insignificance in the universe, the same God who made it all cares about us. Join us for STAR Camp this summer, where your child will learn about God's love and care for us as we explore the fields of science, technology, arts, and recreation (thus the acronym STAR). We'll SOAR THRU THE FOREST the weeks of June 6 and 27, and then we'll SOAR THRU THE HEAVENS the week of July 18!

Frequently asked questions
What is STAR Camp?
STAR Camp is a summer half-day camp for kids going into to Kindergarten-5th Grade. Each day campers participate in age-appropriate activities in the fields of science, technology, arts, and recreation (thus the acronym STAR). This year STAR Camp has two themes: SOAR THRU THE FOREST during the weeks of June 6 and 27, followed by SOAR THRU THE HEAVENS the week of July 18.
 
What is the structure of camp?
Each day campers rotate with their age group through several stations which focus on different fields (science/technology, arts, or recreation). We also have a large group session in which campers will be served a healthy snack and listen to a short biblical lesson on God's creation.

Is the camp open to everyone?
Yes! We invite children of all faith, ethnic, educational, and family backgrounds to attend.
 
What does my child need to bring each day?
Only a resealable bottle of water with your child's name clearly marked on it. Please do not allow your child to bring toys or show and tell items because time is limited and these things can be distracting to other campers.

Is each camp identical? Can I bring my child to multiple camps?
This year STAR Camp has two themes: SOAR THRU THE FOREST (weeks of June 6 and 27) and SOAR THRU THE HEAVENS (week of July 18). Activities will be based on the theme for each week. You are welcome to send your child to as many camps as you'd like!

Are you going to pressure my child into making a major life decision about what he or she believes?
No! When it comes to children, we believe major life decisions about faith and belief in God are more appropriately left to parents/guardians and the spiritual leaders that they select. We will share what we believe to be the truth about God from the Bible, but we will not pressure children to make specific faith decisions.

I'd like to attend, but I don't have the money. Do you offer scholarships?
Thankfully we have some generous donors who never want to see a child turned away because of finances. The cost of the camp has already been offset for everyone by a generous gift. If your family needs additional help paying for STAR Camp, we can offer partial and full scholarships to a select number of campers based on need. You may be asked to submit pay stubs or your most recent tax return to demonstrate financial need. If you'd like to be considered, please email contact@vccellijay.com with your request.
