Parents we are grateful you are here to take a closer look at Camp Pathway. We hope that you will send your child to Camp Pathway this summer! We will do everything we can to make this a safe, rewarding and wonderful experience for your child. We are excited to offer 10 weeks of summertime FUN packed with amazing adventures to challenge each camper as they journey on an epic quest in search of TRUTH. Each step campers take along the Path of Truth will reveal new and exciting opportunities with life changing impact and memories to last a lifetime. Careful thought and prayer has gone into every aspect of the program. Our counselors are solid Christian role models who will encourage campers to become the young men and women that God created them to be.

FAQ Q. What are the age groups? A. Children ages 4-12 may attend Camp Pathway
Q. How much does camp cost? A. $135/week if you register prior to the start of the camp week. There is a $25 non-refundable deposit due for each week you register to hold your child(ren's) spot for any given week. The deposit will later be deducted from your weekly balance. If you register on or before April 8th you can receive $10 off your deposit each week you register for. For an additional child in the family, $10 per week will be deducted. Thus, the first child will pay $135/week and all other children in the family will pay $120/week. If you wait until Monday to register for that week, there is a $10 late fee added to your account, bringing the total cost is $150/wk.
Q. What are the hours of operation? A. The camp program is schedule from 9:00 am-4:00 pm with pre-camp childcare available between 7:00-9:00am and post-camp childcare from 4:00-6:00pm (pre-camp and post-camp are available for all campers at no extra charge). We know that things happen, appointments need to be attended, etc., but we prefer that is at all possible you pick up your child after the official program is over at 4:00pm to allow your child(ren) to enjoy the full extent of the program.
Q. What activities will a camper participate in? A. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle boating, kickball, baseball, softball, basketball, dodgeball, gaga ball, soccer, inflatables, swimming, hiking, singing, daily devotions, movies, ropes course (ages 10 and older), arts and crafts, water games, archery, and more! There will be specialized activities according to each weeks themes.
Q. How should my camper dress? A. COMFORTABLE clothes. We suggest shorts and a t-shirt (but nothing fancy) as campers will be very active each day they attend camp. Campers must wear closed toe shoes to participate in the activities. Wearing Crocs, sandals, or flip-flops may prohibit a camper from participating in certain activities. Midriff shirts, short shorts, spaghetti strap shirts, baggy pants with underwear showing are not acceptable at Camp Pathway. If a child shows up wearing inappropriate or unacceptable clothing, a parent/guardian will be asked to take the child home to change clothes.
Q. What should a camper bring to camp each day? A:
A tote bag/book bag marked with their name and large enough to hold personal belongings such as a swimsuit, towel, lunch.
A swimsuit and towel. Campers will swim or participate in water activities nearly every day.
Sack lunch and drink(s). There are no refrigeration or microwave accommodations. A small cooler is recommended for sending a lunch and drinks in. Parents are encouraged to pack addition drinks (water is recommended over sodas). Camp Pathway provides water coolers at several locations around camp to keep campers hydrated during the day. Camp Pathway will also provide one snack and drink during each afternoon.
Sun Screen-SPF of 36 or higher is recommended. Water proof sunscreen is preferred. Counselors will make sure children over covered in sun screen before participating in outdoor activities.
For any item brought to camp, we strongly encourage parents to write their child's name on all items.
Q.What should a camper NOT bring to camp? A.
Jewelry-This includes real or fake jewelry. This also includes silly bands! You may ask what the harm of wearing silly bands is but the reason is very costly. When a camper goes swimming in our pool, silly bands tend to slip off and will eventually seep through our pumping system and can cause damage to the pool pumps. When enough silly bands circulate through the pump, it can cause $1000's of dollars to our pumping system.
Cell Phones-We strongly urge parents to not allow children to bring their cell phone to camp. If they need to contact a parent or if a parent needs to contact a camper, it can always be done through the Camp Office.
