Welcome to Cedarkirk Day Camp!

We are thrilled to offer our first summer of on-site day camp programs!

Day Camp at a Glance
Our adventure-based, faith-focused day camps will provide your camper with a week full of outdoor adventure. Day campers will play outside, make friends, try some new adventures, and grow in their faith. Cost for five days of day camp (Mon-Fri) is $220 per session.

How We Do Day Camp
Your camper will be part of a “family group” – a group of campers with two counselors. It is with this small group that each camper will experience all of Cedarkirk’s activities. A few times a day the family groups will join together (lunch, large group games, etc.). With this family group model your camper can expect to make new friends, try new things, and grow in their faith. This model allows our counselors to focus on each camper as group member – and as an individual. It also ensures the highest level of supervision so that every camper feels safe, included, and part of something bigger than themselves.

Adventure-Based
Much of your camper’s day will be spent outdoors participating in camp activities like the climbing wall, arts & crafts, devotion, creek stomping and shark’s tooth hunting, zip lining, swimming in our pool, and more! One of Cedarkirk’s greatest assets is our beautiful, wooded property and we use it fully for our camp programs. Even though we’re just down the road, driving onto camp property feels like you’re leaving the world far behind! Of course, summer days in Florida are hot and we build in ample down time to cool off, hydrate, and get ready for the next activity.

Faith-Focused
In addition to the exciting camp activities, the core of our program is daily devotion and opportunities to explore faith. Once a day our counselors lead campers through a weekly curriculum that will help campers learn more about their faith and strengthen their relationship with God. We want every camper to know that God loves them and that this is a safe space for them to ask tough questions and figure out how to connect more with God in new ways.

Our Staff
The best part of our program is our exceptional summer staff. We go to great lengths to select and train enthusiastic, dedicated, and responsible young adults to ensure a safe, meaningful, and fun experience for your child. Each staff member is background checked to Florida Level II standards, trained in first aid, CPR, and the use of an AED, and participates in a rigorous staff training. If you have questions about how we screen or train our staff, please reach out to one of our directors (contact info below).

Lunch
Along with the daily items on the Day Camp What To Bring list, every camper should bring a packed lunch. Day Camp groups will break for lunch in the middle of the day before resuming with their scheduled activities. Cedarkirk will provide a snack to every camper toward the end of the camp day. (If your camper has a special diet or food allergies, please include that in their Health Form during the registration process so we can accommodate them.)

Drop Off & Pick Up
Day Camp programming runs from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

  • Preferred camper drop off each day is from 8:30 am to 9:00 am. For those who need a little extra time in the morning, we offer early drop off from 8:00 am to 8:30 am.
  • Preferred camper pick up each day is from 4:30 pm to 5:00 pm. Late pick up is available from 5:00 pm to 5:30 pm.
  • We do not accommodate drop off before 8:00 am or pick up after 5:30 pm. Repeated violation of the drop off / pick up timeframe may result in removal of your camper from the program.

*Please allow a little additional time for Monday’s drop off so you can verify your list of authorized pick up persons and review the health and contact info you submitted for your camper. Do note that we require any person picking up a camper to present photo identification and be on your pre-approved list of authorized persons.
