Summer Camps

Young Engineers Retreat

March 5th-7th, 2021

Calling all Young Engineers! Come join us as we dive into various STEM challenges that will cover a host of science topics that focus on engineering. Our very own Mr. Josh Brackbill and Mr. Dan Vallette will be our lead engineers as we discover some amazing truths about the Lord and the incredible world He created for us to explore!

Coed, Ages 11-16

Cost: $95.00

While engineering projects and Bible teaching are the focus of the weekend, we will also enjoy some indoor and outdoor camp activities throughout the weekend. Campers will stay 2 nights in our winterized retreat cabins and will enjoy 4 delicious meals and 2 evening snacks.

You don’t want to miss out!

We have been praying all year that your child is continuing to grow in the Lord. And we are specifically praying that that this weekend will be a refreshing & fun experience that will equip your child to take on the rest of the busy school year! We hope they will come out & join us as we dig into God’s Word & focus on Him, all while having an absolute BLAST with some whacky activities around camp!

To see all the safety measures and protocols we put in place for our summer camp programs you can Click Here.

As we seek the safest and most effective ways to continue running our programming, we will be tracking the latest CDC and PA Health Department recommendations. Our goal is to maintain a safe environment by educating our campers and staff on safe practices and risk management. This will include a regular routine of sanitizing the facilities as well as regulating proper hygiene for the campers and staff within their daily routine. Camper group sizes will be regulated and cohorted to manage exposure potential. Common areas will be used only by one group at a time and will be completely sanitized/disinfected between groups.

Masked/gloved staff members will be serving food to campers from behind serving tables with plexiglass barriers. Rigorous sanitation of food service and dining areas will be in place. Campers will be provided areas where they can eat their meals in a socially distanced setting.

While we will not be requiring campers or counselors to wear masks all day, we will ask each camper and counselor to bring a mask along for certain settings where social distancing may not be possible. For outdoor play and indoor activities where the campers can spread out, we will not be requiring masks. However, as parents, if you prefer that your child wear a mask, they are welcome to do so.

Campers will be reminded to wash hands often, socially distance where possible and practice good hygiene during camp to preventing the spread of Covid19 and other illnesses.

Campers will undergo a health screening at drop off which will include a temperature check and health risk questions. We ask that families keep sick campers at home. Families will not be charged for campers that are kept home because they are sick.

Campers should come prepared to spend time outside every day the weather permits. We are thankful for the 150 acres and spread-out facilities here at camp, and we believe that we can still offer a fun, safe, spiritually enriching experience for your child under the guidelines in place.

$95 per person-includes snacks, 5 meals, two-night stay & all programming. Registration requires payment in full. Cancellations later than 3 days in advance will result in loss of the $95.

DROP OFF: 7:30 pm on Friday evening. Please park in the main parking lot & check-in at the Scott Building across the street (white building with green trim) for your cabin assignments & instructions.

PICK UP: 8:30am on Sunday morning. Please pick your camper up at their cabin. Our goal with this timeframe is to create an opportunity for our campers and our staff to return home to attend church with their families.

**Parents, due to Covid-19 we are asking that only one accompanying adult get out of the car for drop off/pick up. Thanks for your cooperation!

Please bring any medications your child may need in their original as prescribed containers. During drop off on Friday evening, you will have the opportunity to discuss dosage & instructions with our staff who will be issuing the medications.

Please be sure that you have noted all medications on your child’s “Retreat Health Form” online. Please bring any medications your child may need in their original as prescribed containers. During drop off on Friday evening, you will have the opportunity to discuss dosage & instructions with our staff who will be issuing the medications. Placing your dosage instructions on a 3×5 card and enclosing all medications and instructions in a ziplock bag is recommended.

We are experienced with accommodating most special dietary needs. But we need your help with making us aware of dietary restrictions & needs in advance so we can make sure your child’s mealtime experience here is great. Please fill in as much detail as possible in the special diet section of the retreat health form (part of the online registration already) & contact our Director of Food Services (Amanda at foodservice@campsankanac.org) no later than the Monday prior to the weekend to discuss the menu & substitutions. Thank you!
