what your kids will experience & learn
A child’s spiritual life can be greatly impacted by their home environment, church involvement, and unique experiences like camp. CentriKid is committed to providing a place for kids to get away—even for a little while—to hear loud and clear that God loves them and has a plan for their lives. Safety in our programming, within relationships, and on campus are top priorities. We believe powerful things can happen when kids feel safe to be a kid!
From Morning Worship to Bible Study, Recreation to Track Times, everything at CentriKid is designed with the heart of a child in mind. Our staff members are carefully chosen for their energy level, love of fun, and ability to connect with kids, and every week culminates with the whole camp playing the most fun game ever: OMC, which stands for Organized Mass Chaos!
What will camp be like for my child?
I was excited for my son to have an experience with camp, but also in a Christian environment. This was an opportunity for him to grow closer to our church pastor, as well as learn more about Jesus. My favorite thing about CentriKid is how they make the gospel tangible and exciting for the kids to learn. They make it real and incorporate it into every activity, like recreation, quiet time, and Bible study.
5/5 stars from this mom & veteran chaperone!

May younger children come to camp?
We want group leaders and adults to be able to spend time with loved ones during their busy summer, and we understand that, in some situations, parents or guardians may want or need to bring younger kids to camp. Infants or toddlers who do not require additional bed space or meals may come at no charge. Younger kids who need a bed or who will eat meals at camp should be registered as a participant at full price. Younger kids should remain under adult supervision at all times, and may not participate in Bible study, recreation, or track times. Please also consider the needs of your campers, and ensure enough adults accompany your group to build relationships and focus on their camp experience. All participants (even younger kids) must have a completed camp waiver and release (found on step 3 – important forms).
Are accommodations made for kids with food allergies?
Many of our locations are able to accommodate food allergies and sensitivities. Please let us know ahead of time of any allergies so we can communicate them with our locations – we will let you know if they are not able to accommodate your child’s food allergy.
How do you handle medication at camp?
Adult Leaders are responsible for medication brought to camp. CentriKid staffers are not responsible for dispensing medication to campers.
Can guests come visit camp?
Safety is our #1 concern at camp. Please talk with your Kids Minister or Group Leader to have them inform your Camp Director about any visitors during your week of camp.
Should my child bring money to camp?
There will be a camp store open throughout the week where they can purchase fun camp souvenirs. There will also be a missions offering that they will hear about and can give to if they would like.
What will the accommodations look like where my camper will stay?
Click on Find-A-Camp page and select the location your group is attending. From there you will find information about the facilities, housing, and other fun stuff. When you have questions, your Kids Minister or Group Leader may have answers from our regular updates, or they can get in touch with our office!
Are there theme nights or anything special my child should pack?
There are no “dress-up” nights at CentriKid. For OMC, our all-camp event on the last full day, kids and adults are encouraged to wear their team colors! This could be as simple as packing a t-shirt in that color. (Refer question above to find out what color team your child will be on)
Where can i find lost items after camp?
At the end of each day, misplaced items are displayed near buses in the hopes of returning them to their owner. If a camper’s name is on the found item, we do our best to return it to the camper that day. At the end of the week, we discard dirty socks, beach towels, and half-full water bottles. All remaining items left at camp will be kept until the end of the summer and then donated.
