The primary purpose of the summer day camp program is positive youth development in a Christian based environment that educates children through moral values & ethical lessons. The program here at the All Nations Center allows children to make healthy choices in a safe and nurturing environment while interacting with caring adults.
Day Camp contributes to a range of positive effects in youth. A national study of youth development outcomes from the camp experience - conducted by the American Camp Association (2005) - found that camp participation led to increases in each of the following areas: self-esteem, independence, leadership, friendship skills, social comfort, peer relationships, adventure & exploration, environmental awareness, values & decisions, and spirituality.
Each of us here at the All Nations Center take our responsibility seriously when it comes to the care & guidance of the children in our day camp program. We hire enthusiastic Christian Counselors, who are responsible for guiding the campers during activities and ensuring their physical & emotional safety at all times. Counselors are assigned to smaller groups of campers who participate in activities as a group. Most of our counselors are in their late teens or early twenties, as it is an ideal job for high school or college students on their summer break.
