Kids Camp 2021

For children entering Kindergarten through entering 5th grade

Welcome families!  We are so happy to announce we will be offering an in-person summer program for your elementary grade children this August. We cannot wait to see your kids on our campus! If you have attended “VBS” in the past, there are a lot of updates.

Hope VBS has been reinvented, starting with the name! We are now Kids Camp.  We’ve added more interactive indoor and outdoor activities without sacrificing our goal of sharing the Gospel message with children each day. All children will be rotating to stations inside and outside the building, staying with their small group and small group leaders throughout the morning. There is a small fee this year. $25/child or $40/family.

Our Thursday night experience will look different as well. On Thursday night, we will host a private Family Fun Night for camp attendees and their families only.  Following Covid guidelines, free family activities will include, Land Inflatable, Indoor Playcenter, Games, a family worship time and opportunities for kids to spend their Bible bucks.  All children will go home on Friday with a Grow bag to continue learning and fun at home.

Kids Camp is one week only for 2021 and space is limited.

Dates: August 2 – August 6th

Time:   Drop off:  8:45 drop off begins (times will be assigned)

              Pick up:  12:00 Pick up begins (times will be assigned)

Fee:  $25/child.  $40 Family maximum.  

 All children registered on one form must live at the same address. 

Space is limited in order to accommodate protocols for Covid safety.

Please read carefully. If you still have questions, send them to  KidsCamp@sharethehope.org Please allow 24 hours for a response.

What is the grade requirement for Kids Camp?

Children entering Kindergarten through entering 5th grade.  

What if my child is eligible to enter Kindergarten, but attending preschool in 2021/2022?

Unfortunately we need to be consistent and enforce the grade requirement.  Children entering preschool are not eligible for Kids Camp even if they are turning 5 this fall.  

How are the grades organized for camp?

Two grades per range: Entering K/1st; Entering 2nd/3rd; Entering 4th/5th

Is registration required and when will registration open?

Yes.  This is a registration only event.  Registration opens June 1.  Registration is online only. 

How do I register?

The registration link can be found at the top of this page.  It will also be posted on our HopeKidsRoc Facebook page.

Is there a charge for Kids Camp?

Yes.  $25 per child/$40 per family maximum for children in the same household.  

Financial policy regarding sick children and refunds:
  • If your child cannot attend the full week of camp due to illness or injury and a doctor’s note is provided, a full refund will be given.
  • A “no show” to camp will not be given a refund or receive prorated fees. 

To be with a friend, can I register my child for a higher or lower age group than their actual grade?  

An older child may register one year lower.  For example, a 2nd grader may register for a K/1 group, a 3rd grader cannot register for a K/1 group.  A child cannot register for a higher grade.  For friends to be together, be sure to register both the same age range and group number. 

How will I know what group my child is registered in?

On the registration link, when asked to enter the child’s information, you will be asked to pick a grade range, within that grade range are numbered groups with 16 spots each.  

The Groups will be numbered for ease of registration and are for registration purposes only.  

Can I register friends with my child on the same form?

No.  Only children in the same household can register on one registration form.  

Will I be able to see the names of other children registered when I sign up my child?

No.

Hope Church reserves the right to update and edit First Aid and Covid policies as procedures may change based upon information received from the Monroe County Department of Health and NYS Department of Health.
