WHY WE DO KIDS CAMPS

Kids Camp gives us the amazing opportunity to present the awesome message of God to kids in extremely creative ways. Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and create fantastic crafts.

Camper FAQ

  • Can I request that my child be put in a group with their friends?
    • We can honor one friend request from the same grade/age group (i.e. a 4th grader cannot be in a 5th grade group). There is a spot on the registration form for you to request one friend be placed in your group.
  • How do I change the group my kid was put in?
    • You can request a change when you pick up your t-shirt; after that there will be no group changes. We will do our best to honor your request, but please understand we cannot guarantee a change.

    • You will immediately receive a confirmation email. If that doesn’t happen, please contact Stacee Eggers at seggers@arvadacovenant.org.

VOLUNTEER FAQ

  • When do I get my placement?
    • You will receive a confirmation email that your registration has arrived in our office. Please be patient. It takes some time to place all of our wonderful 250+ volunteers in their positions. We will do our best to honor one of your three position requests. Although we can’t give you an exact date when you will receive your placement, we will contact you as soon as possible.
  • Do I have to take the on-line training course if I’ve volunteered for Kids Camp before?
    • Yes, safety is our first priority and this in how we ensure both our kids and volunteers are safe. With so many volunteers in so many different areas, this is the best way for us to rally the troops and be on the same page for a great week!
  • When do I get my t-shirt?
    • T-shirts will be handed out at Kick-Off on June 15th, 6pm. Since we do not have in person trainings this year, it’s crucial that you attend Kick-off. Plus, Kick-Off is super fun!
  • Do I need a background check; I’ve had one done before?
    • Arvada Covenant Church renews background checks every three years. You will be contacted if your background check has expired and you will need to fill out another form. This will also be done through “Ministry Safe.”
    • **NOTE!! – If you do not have a current background check on file with our church, you may not volunteer for Kids Camp.
  • Do I have to be there every day?
    • If you want to volunteer and don’t have the entire week free, we do have a few positions for substitutes. Please indicate this on your application.
  • Do have I have to attend ACC in order to volunteer?
    • No, we welcome volunteers from other churches who display a mature, growing relationship with Christ.
  • Childcare & minicamp:
    • If you are volunteering and have a child who is under the age of 5 and not starting Kindergarten in the fall, then you may sign your child up for nursery or minicamp.
    • Please note: You will sign your mini-camper up through the volunteer registration site, not the camper registration site.
