Hi potential summer camp families! Believe it or not, Camp Chestnut Ridge online registration is LIVE. First UMC Cary will be taking kids to church day camp June 27-July 1 and August 1-5. Kids do NOT have to be church members to join us – come on, come all! What is Chestnut Ridge? An excerpt from their website:
“Each summer, we welcome over a thousand campers who come to share in a warm welcome, good food, friendship, campfires, stories, worship and songs. Each week of camp forms a community that experiences the love of God through a dedicated staff, well planned activities, and a beautiful outdoor setting.
Chestnut Ridge is a fun place to grow. It is a place for first-time campers to gain new life experiences and new friendships with campers and staff. It is a place for returning campers who come each year to make new friendships and renew old ones. It is a place where all campers recreate and reconnect with others, with the created world, and with God.
Nestled in the Heart of Carolina, Chestnut Ridge offers residential and day camp experiences for campers. Summer Camp offers the very best residential program we can conceive: a small group with which to live and grow, and a choice of program activities for older elementary and middle school aged campers. Day camp features an abundance of program selections, and finishes each day with campers returning home before dinner.”
Yes, we are already planning for summer 2016, crazy, right? But to get the best choices in majors for your camper, you DO want to sign up early. Click HERE to register.
Scholarships are available, if interested, email Stacy Harrell at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Church Day Camp ages are rising 1st grade through 8th grade. We will set up a ‘sign up genius list’ so parents can help taking turns driving/chaperoning the vans in a bit and will post that link when we have it, just be aware that signing your child up for camp also includes signing up to drive or chaperone at least one trip out to CCR from FUMCC.
There has always been special pricing for Church Day Camp, but it is being applied via “discount code” now. This is the same as last year. It is still $50 off the regular price. Here’s how it works:
Your church day camp DISCOUNT CODE for both weeks is: Cary
You will need to use this code in order for the Church Day Camp pricing to be applied to your accounts. Here’s how that will work this year:
You will log into the Online Registration Portal like last year and will update all family information then select the camper(s) being registered. After you have selected the Day…Week session appropriate for your camper and have selected the “Option” for your camper, next are a few different required forms pages for you to complete. When you get to the page that has “Proceed to Checkout” on it, you will need to click the “Discount Code” link for a box to populate for you to enter your discount code of Cary. Once you enter the code and click the “Add Code” button, you will see the camp fee cost adjust. Then you will proceed to payment.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
