Big Sandy Camp kicks off summer with Sprouts Kids Camp, a camp designed for kids in 2nd through 4th grade. This is a half week of camp for elementary students to see what it is like to be at camp and see if they would like being at camp for a whole week.
They then have what we call “Combo” weeks here at BSC. A combo week is a week where we have Junior Camp and Junior High Camp running simultaneously. Junior Camp is for kids in 4th through 6th grade, and Junior High is for kids in 7th through 9th grade. The campers will eat meals and have free time together, but they have separate housing, activities and chapels. This separation is important for us to be able to serve the campers to the best of our ability, and to be able to meet them at the maturity levels they are at. Senior High Camp is for campers in 10th through 12th grades. During Senior High all chapels, meals, and groups activities are done together. This is a week where we are able to really dig deep into scripture and have some great conversations with campers.
The last type of camp that we have is Wakeboard Camp. This year we are introducing a second week of Wakeboard Camp, that way we can have one for Junior High and another for Senior High. Wakeboard Campers will attend meals and chapels with our other campers, but they have the unique opportunity to spend the week out on the lake wakeboarding for a majority of the day.
Every week of camp, with the exception of Sprouts Kids Camp, begins Monday morning and runs through Saturday morning. Registration for camp opens Monday morning at 9:30 and goes to 11:15. During this time campers will be given their cabin assignments, meet their counselor, meet with the nurse for any medical needs, and settle up any balances that are due. Sprouts Kids Camp registration works the same way as our other camps, the only difference being that camp starts Wednesday morning instead of Monday morning. All camps end on Saturday morning with our Closing Rally. Parents are more than welcome to join us for our Closing Rally at 9:15 in Fisher Chapel. Anyone not able to make it to the rally can pick up their campers at 9:45.
