SpringHill may be a big camp full of fun activities - but your camper will never feel lost. They will spend their entire camp week with the same cabin mates and counselors. The intimacy of the small group will help your child build meaningful relationships with others and give them the confidence to get out of their comfort zone.
We have a very low 1:6 counselor-to-camper ratio at this age level. Our staff is trained to address the emotional, mental, spiritual and behavioral needs of a 1st - 3rd grade child in order to better serve and accommodate every individual.
The campers in Explore love imagination and creativity. We purposely tap into both of those awesome traits through our programming, housing, activities, and curriculum. Explore is designed to help captivate your camper's imagination.
Every camper wants to have as much fun as possible. Explore is full of amazing adventures and activities designed just for this age group. your campers will have plenty of opportunities to be high-flying or get soaking wet during the week!
Every experience your child has at SpringHill has been intentionally designed to integrate faith and teachable moments into the fun activities. We use questions and Bible stories that campers in Explore will understand to challenge them to live out their faith everyday.
We eat our meals family-style at SpringHill. The counselors will help serve each camper and then join them during the meal to make sure each camper is drinking water and eating well. We always have fruit and salad bar avaliable as well as an alternative to the hot meal.
"We thought our first grader would cry herself to sleep. When we picked her up, she was crying because she did not want to leave SpringHill. She has been back every year since."Camper Parent
As parents, we know you want to see your children grow in their faith. This is also extremely important to us, and one of our main goals while your child is at SpringHill. Our counselors are young, passionate, and fun role models who are open about their love for God and God's love for your child. While at camp, your child will be around counselors who are young, fun role models that are open about their love for God.
And our top goal is to integrate faith and fun throughout each day of camp. Counselors are always looking for teachable moments throughout the camp day.
Your child will be with the same counselors the entire week. This gives counselors the time to get to know your child and become emotionally invested in their lives. A counselor's sole purpose is to build relationships with your camper and make sure they are well taken care of and included at camp.
Counselors stay in cabins with campers and spend the whole day with these cabin groups, participating in activities and leading small group sessions. We have additional counselors who run activities during the day and stay with your campers at night to provide extra support both at activities and in the cabins. This ensures that campers are never left alone and still get the individualized attention that they need.
Homesickness is not uncommon at camp - usually because it's a child's first time away from home for an extended period of time. We are aware of this and love to care for and pray for each child who is having a difficult time being away from home. Most of the time, homesickness occurs right before bed, so our counselors are trained in how to anticipate and care for your child.
Working with our professional medical staff, counselors ensure campers receive the treatment and medications they need. If your camper takes medications, they will receive the right dose at the right time, every day.
At every level, staff members are not permitted to be alone with campers. Campers and staff must always be within view of others or in groups of at least three. Additionally, we make it a point to help educate parents on how to keep their children safe.
