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 June11-June 15 and July 30- August 3, 2018. Kids do NOT have to be church members to join us – come one, 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 2018! To get the best choices in majors for your camper, you DO want to sign up early. Click HERE to register. Returning campers can register November 1st using the password “2018CAMPFAMILY” and all other campers can register December 1st, 2017.
Scholarships are available, if interested, email Alicia Shelton 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 using a FUMCC Discount Code, also includes signing up to drive or chaperone at least one trip out to CCR from FUMCC.
There is special pricing for Church Day Camp, it is applied via “discount code” . This is the same as last year. It is still $50 off the regular price for Day and Residential Camp.
Your church day camp DISCOUNT CODE for June 11th -15th is: Cary1 and for July 30th -August 3rd is: Cary8
You will need to use these codes in order for the Church Day Camp pricing to be applied to your accounts. Here’s how that will work:
You will log into the Online Registration Portal 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 either Cary1 or Cary8 depending on the week you are signing up for. 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.
And click HERE to be taken to the page on our website that lists all summer 2018 activities, so you can plan on VBS, Music/Drama Camp and other fun stuff – these registrations all open February 1st.
