Discovery CampMaking Memories, Learning and Having Fun this Summer!
2020 Discovery Camp Update
After thoughtful consideration and many discussions, the decision has been made to cancel Discovery Camp for summer 2020. Our priorities include the safety of camp children and staff, as well as the quality of the program offered. This decision is aligned with local public and private entities. Please continue to pray for the state of society as a whole and for our Immanuel Community.
We look forward to seeing campers during our Holiday Camp programs offered over school breaks and to a MARVELous 2021 summer! Stay tuned for more information to come. We will continue to stay connected with families via emails and our social media platforms.
“Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
About Discovery Camp
Immanuel offers a summer camp program for children from four years of age through those entering Eighth Grade this fall. The program runs from the week after school is out (K-8th grade) in June until mid-August every year.
Children are provided with supervised playtime, indoor and outdoor recreation, field trips, arts and crafts projects, interesting educational experiences and Bible study. Activities will be planned around weekly thematic units and include swimming at the Palatine Pool. Weekly field trips are included in our camp program, based on the theme of the week. Children attending Discovery Camp during the third week will also participate in Immanuel’s Adventure Bible Camp.
Friendly and enthusiastic Christian counselors direct Immanuel’s Discovery Camp. Each counselor is selected based on skills and training, maturity, creativity, and sensitivity to the needs of all camp participants. Many of Immanuel’s counselors and directors have training in education and years of experience working with children. Several are also Alumni from Immanuel Lutheran School, choosing to give back to the school that meant so much to them. The 4 and 5 year-olds have a program designed to meet the needs of these wonderful children.
A maximum of 65 students will be included each day to ensure proper camper/counselor ratios. Enroll early if you are interested, since applications are accepted on a first-come, first-enrolled basis.
Camp is in session from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. “Before Care” is offered from 7:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m. “After Care” is offered from 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. These extended day programs are each charged at a rate of $6 per hour and will be billed on a weekly basis through tuition express. Students and parents have the flexibility to register for 2, 3, or 5 days a week across any of our weekly sessions. Each session can be adjusted as necessary to meet the needs of your family. Fees include breakfast, snacks and a Discovery Camp T-shirt. Students need to bring their own lunches and purchase a Palatine Pool pass or punch card.
