Welcome to FOF (The Family of Faith) Summer Camp 2013! This summer at FOF Summer Camp promises to be filled with fun, friendships, skill building, and faith.
Our goals at Summer Camp are simple. We want for every child to:
Summer Program hours are from 6:30am-6:30pm. Camp hours are from 8:45am to 3:30pm.
Each morning of the week that your camper is here we ask that a parent or other adult come into the building to sign-in your camper. On the first day of camp each week come in to look at the weekly schedule, pay any tuition that is due, receive notes about the day/week, etc.
Likewise, if there is anything the Summer Camp staff needs to know about your camper during the week – this is the time/place to communicate/confirm information. There will be a space for “notes” on the attendance sheets. Please communicate important information here so we can have a “hard document” of important information. Examples of important information to share are: alternate pick-up person, needed medications, requests to miss an activity, etc. If something is more personal and private, you may leave a note for the Director.
Please drop-off your camper by 8:45am daily. Important information for the day is shared at our opening at 8:45am. We also don’t typically have staff to just ‘man the door’, unless we’re planning for it. If you know there’s a high probability that you’ll be late, please let us know in advance. We may be able to accommodate you.
A legal guardian, as noted on the enrollment form, must enter the building to sign-out and pick-up the camper. If someone other than who is noted on the enrollment form is needed to pick-up your camper you must inform the Summer Camp office or note it on the sign-in sheet in the morning. Identity verification will be asked of the authorized pick-up person. These are security measures intended to protect you and your child.
If your child will be picked-up before 3:30pm, please notify Summer Camp in advance, either by calling the Summer Camp office or by notifying us in the morning. Our scheduled activities may be located all around our campus. Prior notification will help to expedite your camper pick-up process.
Please Note: All campers must be picked up by 6:30pm. Campers not picked up at this time will incur a late fee of $1 for each minute after 6:30pm.
Campers are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing. We will go outside daily, so please keep that in mind. Closed toed shoes are recommended for outside. Campers are welcome to leave a pair of shoes at Camp in their cubby.
All clothing must be tasteful and not contradict Christian values through wording, pictures, and/or design. Clothing must cover midriffs. Swimwear must be appropriate. Also we ask that children wear a swim shirt that will help protect their skin while at water play. If the Director finds any swimwear to be inappropriate, the camper will be asked to wear a t-shirt to cover the swimwear.
Every day we will meet at 8:45am to start our day’s activities together at FOF Summer Camp. In Opening time we learn how we are Creations of God. When we tell others about God, forgive, share, and serve others – we are Missionaries for God! We are all on God’s Team – so let’s work together to share His love with everyone we encounter. At Summer Camp, we will learn and practice some of the ways we can serve God. We will also encourage our campers to be active in spreading God’s Word and Saving Love, not just at Camp, but at home and in their neighborhoods.
Feel free to join us at our Opening. We meet every morning at 8:45am in the gym.
Throughout the day we will also join together to pray, whether it’s before a meal or when we start a special activity
Campers will have free time in the gym or Breezeway until the morning opening begins at 8:45am. Throughout the rest of the day campers will participate in group games, crafts, computer lab time, library time, use of the gym and outdoor playground, and any camp activities for that week. Movies shown will not have a rating higher than PG, and any music played will be tasteful and not contradict Christian values.
Every other Friday will be movie day at FOF Summer Camp. A movie will be shown on the big screen, popcorn and other possible refreshments will be available for campers for a real movie effect.
Every other Friday will be water play day. We will play with sprinklers, water toys, get soaked in our water slide and cool off during the summer day. Campers will need appropriate water play attire (including water shoes) and a towel.
JUNE 10-14 Messy Art Week
We will spend this week doing really messy art outside. We will squirt paint from spray bottles, do spaghetti art, sponge and roller art and display our work throughout the week. Bring an old t-shirt and get ready to get messy!
June 17 –21 Karate
This camp was a hit and a kick last summer! Pastor Larry Wong takes each class through a series of moves, poses and techniques to get strong bodies and strengthening our faith while learning focus, self-control, self-discipline and self-defense.

Create robots that rock and robots that roll! Using the LEGO™ WeDo Robotics Kit build a robotic monkey that plays a drum to a rock & roll beat, a lion that roars, a bird that flaps its wings, and a boat that will rock on the rough seas.
