When I consider your heavens,

the work of your hands,

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. The universe 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.

Frequently asked questions
What is STAR Camp?
STAR Camp is a summer 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).
 
What is the structure of camp?
Each day campers rotate with their age group through several "revolutions" which focus on different fields (Science/Technology, Arts, or Recreation). There is also a large group session in which campers will be served a healthy snack (gluten free, organic) and listen to a short biblical story in which stars play a prominent role. Drop off begins at 8:45am and pick up is at noon each day.

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. On the last day of camp, if weather permits, we try to play water games outside. If it looks like the weather will cooperate, we will ask you to send a change of clothes and a towel on that day.

Is each camp identical? Can I bring my child to multiple camps?
Each camp has the same general structure and will possibly have some overlapping activities, but we do our best to keep activities fresh for campers who come to multiple camps. 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.
