Your Child's Welfare*

Your camper's health and safety is our highest priority as we prepare for camp. In response to COVID-19, YOM is taking proactive measures and will continue to be responsive to CDC guidelines, current conditions, and local health department advisement including

  • Limiting capacity to 50%
  • Implementing increased cleaning
  • Conducting routine health screenings
  • Practicing appropriate social distancing

We are doing everything we can to make sure your camper has a fun, exciting, and safe experience.

*For your camper’s security, those picking up campers (including parents or legal guardians) must present a photo ID.

Biblical Truths

Bible truths are taught to help lead youth to a knowledge of Christ. The Bible gives the best light for this life and the only hope for the life to come. No other book can so enrich the minds and hearts of young people as the Bible.

Staff

Along with our camp director, three assistant directors, camp nurse, and chapel director, our staff is composed of students and staff from Pensacola Christian College and staff from Pensacola Christian Academy who’ve dedicated their summer to serving children. Before camp begins, each staff member goes through training in preparation for the arrival of the campers. Camp leaders stay with the campers through every activity—including the pool, water park, and chapel times—and challenge the campers with exciting games and activities throughout the day.

Activities

At Sports Center Day Camp, each day is filled with fun! Children ages 6–12 (and 5-year-olds who've finished K5) swim, play miniature golf, ice skate, and more. The older kids (ages 8–12) also get to go bowling. Whether you enroll your children for a week, a month, or the entire summer, you won't have to worry about their not getting enough exercise or feeling like there's nothing to do.


The physical welfare of each camper is always of utmost importance. A lifeguard is at the swimming pool during all swim periods, and supervisors monitor all activities in the Sports Center. Lunch, snack, and a rest time are included in the daily schedule.

Frequently Asked Questions

General

What are the age requirements for my child to attend camp?

Sports Center Day Camp is for children ages 6–12 and 5-year-olds who have already completed K5.

What is the deadline to register for the next week?

Registrations for the next camp week need to be received by 8 a.m. on Friday to allow time to process everything on Monday. Payments must be made online or by phone prior to check-in.

When does camp open?

Doors will open at 7:30 each morning. Camp will start promptly at 8 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. with Extended Care (additional cost and sign up) running from 3–5:30 p.m. Because no supervision is provided prior to 7:30 a.m., please do not drop off your camper before that time.

Do you have a Lost & Found?

Yes, there is a lost and found bin in the backpack lock-up room. At the end of each week, all the items that are still in the bin are placed in a bag labeled for the week and placed in a storage room. Leaders can help campers look for items left during the previous week. Parents may ask a director to let them look through the lost and found for missing items.

What do I need to pick up my camper?

For your camper’s security, those picking up your camper (including parents and legal guardians) must present a photo ID.

Activities & Facilities

What activities do the campers participate in?

We have ice skating, swimming, miniature golf, air hockey, ping pong, foosball, and many more exciting games in the gym for the campers to participate in. Campers that are 8 years or older get to go bowling as well. Teams are grouped according to age and birth gender.

Is there a lifeguard at the pool/waterpark?

Yes, there are certified lifeguards at the pool, and CPR trained water park staff monitoring campers in the waterpark.

May I see the camp before registering?

Yes. Before camp starts you can call the camp office and we will set up an appointment to take you on a tour. After camp has begun for the summer, you can come into the Sports Center and ask about the availability of a tour, or you can call the camp office and set up a tour time. The last tour time available each day is 2:30 p.m.

Medical

Is there a camp nurse?

Yes. We have a camp nurse available to distribute medication.

What do I do if my camper needs to take medicine while at camp? Is a Medical Release form required to attend camp?

During the registration process, parents may authorize the nurse to administer some basic medication as needed (Benadryl, Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Tums, and swimmer’s ear drops).

A Medical Release form must be submitted for all campers if any of the following conditions apply:

  • The camper has a medical, emotional, behavioral, or physical condition.
  • The camper has a food or environmental allergy.
  • The camper will be bringing any routine or as-needed prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, vitamins/supplements, or essential oils.

Campers are responsible for picking up their medications before leaving camp. We cannot administer prescription or over-the-counter medications, vitamins/supplements, or essential oils without a healthcare professional's signed authorization on the Medical Release form.

What to Bring

Should I send my child with a lunch/snack?

We provide both a lunch and a snack each day of camp. Campers enjoy balanced meals prepared by experienced cooks. The dining menu is on a two-week rotation, providing a variety of meal options for campers who attend consecutive weeks. Each week’s menu is updated online on Sunday afternoons. Campers also have the option to bring a sack lunch—if they have special dietary needs or do not prefer what is on the menu for the day. Because of potential allergy issues, campers should not bring food to be shared with other campers (this includes birthday cakes, cupcakes, etc.).

Will my child need any money for food/drinks at camp?

No. We provide both a lunch and a snack. We do sell Icees at the Sports Center Hub that the campers can buy at the end of the day. However, campers need to be accompanied by an adult who is picking them up from camp to buy one.

How do I get a camp t-shirt?

Camp t-shirts are available for $10 at the Hub during camp weeks. Campers who wear them on Fridays get free candy—as much as they can consecutively catch!

What should my camper bring?

We recommend that campers bring a bag with swimwear and a towel, socks and a light jacket. Some campers like to wear gloves or long pants when ice skating. Campers may bring a blanket for siesta.

Are toys allowed at camp?

Toys, stuffed animals, Legos, trading cards, etc. are not allowed at camp to prevent them from being lost, broken, or becoming a hazard to other campers. Sports Center Day Camp has all the equipment needed in order to have a fun-filled day.

May I send a cell phone with my camper?

We ask that no electronic devices be brought to camp. This includes cell phones. If anything happens and you need to reach your camper, you can call the camp office and we will pass on a message to your camper. If it is an emergency situation, and you need to speak to your camper, a camp director will assist the camper in calling you.

Are there items that my camper should not bring to camp?

  • For the safety of other campers, personal bowling balls and ice skates should not be brought to camp. These items will be provided by the camp.
  • Because of food allergies and other physical issues, any food to be shared with other campers (including birthday cakes, cookies, candy, etc.) should not be brought to camp.
  • For safety reasons, Heelys or other shoes with wheels are not to be worn at camp.
  • To prevent items from being broken, lost, or becoming a hazard to other campers, the following items should not be brought to camp: Toys, stuffed animals, Legos, trading cards, etc.
  • No weapons of any kind should be brought to camp. This includes pocket knives, files, scissors, or other sharp objects.
