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 group and all of the Explore staff are trained on the 1-3 grade age group. They are trained in emotional, mental, spiritual, and behavioral needs in order to better serve and accommodate each and every child.
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. Parents want to see their children try new things. Explore is full of both! Amazing adventures and activities tailored to your child: water slide, blobs, crafts, and much more. Explore even has its own lake designed specifically for this age group!
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 all of the children in Explore will understand, to challenge them and encourage them to begin thinking abstractly.
We eat our meals family-style at SpringHill. The counselors will help serve each camper and then join them during the meal as well to make sure each camper is drinking water and eating well. Meals are prepared on site and are served three times daily.
"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 want to see our children grow in their faith. While at camp, your child will be around counselors who are young, fun role models that are open about their love for God. This always make a strong impression on campers and helps them grow in their faith.
And our top goal is to integrate faith and fun throughout each day of camp. Counselors are always looking for teachable moments during fun activities.
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 are on duty 24/7. Counselors stay in cabins with their campers and spend the whole day with these cabin groups, participating in activities and leading small group sessions. This ensures that campers are never left alone.
Homesickness is common because camp is often a child's first time away from home. We love to care for and pray with each child that experiences homesickness. We keep parents in the loop so they know if their child experiences homesickness. Our staff is trained to handle homesickness in order to best serve the campers.
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.
