It is hard to believe that Life Camp is celebrating its 8th summer this year!! We are pulling out all of the stops to make this the best, most memorable summer yet.
Each year we have added new features to our summer program. This year, we are adding more locations to serve more families. Last year, we added sports to our program and this year we are adding Life Prep Academy to the Life Camp experience. Because our foundation is Proverbs 22:6 - Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Every program we develop for Life Camp keeps this principle in mind.
Life Camp is a state licensed summer day camp. Our staff is hired through the Life Camp standards and process which comply with the requirements of the State of Maryland. We are are inspected by the State of Maryland each summer.
NEW FOR 2015? REFER-A-FRIEND AND SAVE One way to make summer camp more affordable is to spread the word! Any parent referring a NEW camper will receive one FREE week of camp. The new camper must not have ever attended Life Camp to qualify. If the referring parent has more than one child attending Life Camp, credit can only be applied towards one child. The more campers you refer, the more you save!
Summer 2015 will offer three locations in Maryland for your child to enjoy the Life Camp experience. We will offer two convenient drop off and pick up locations for parents in Bowie (The Life Center) and Camp Springs (New Chapel Baptist Church). Campers will be taken to our base location at Camp Springs Community Church located at 8040 Woodyard Rd, Clinton, MD 20735. Parents can also drop off and pick up from that site. Complete with a full gymnasium, instructional rooms and outdoor recreation areas, Camp Springs Community Church offers everything needed to facilitate our programs. Campers coming from Camp Springs and Bowie will be returned to those locations by 4:30pm daily. All locations will close at 6:00pm this year.

SPORTS The Sports Program offers an introduction to the fundamentals in various sports. This year, basketball will be the focus of the Life Arts and Sports Experience. Whether your child is a beginner or more experienced, this program will enhance their current skill level.
Life Camp offers at least three weekly field trips (except for the week of the production where more time is devoted to delivering a top-quality production). Our goal is to expose campers to fun and educational field trips that support physical activity and stimulates learning.
We are excited to announce that our finale performance this year will be Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory! Every year, parents are amazed by the talent their children possess. The Life Camp finale production is designed to build confidence and create lasting memories. Our goal is to deposit positive experiences into the lives of our campers over the course the summer.
