Register for Day Camp

Camp Cherith of WNY presents a day camp that will be held July 2-6, 2018 (M-F), 9 am-5:15 pm daily, with an open house on Sunday July 1. This is a great opportunity to experience all the excitement of Camp Cherith but go home overnight. It is designed especially for girls and boys ages 7-12 years entering 2nd through 6th grade.

Camp Cherith Day Camp offers a wonderful way to ensure your child is spending time outside, developing new skills, and learning about Christ, all while having a FUN!. Every day, campers will participate in Bible studies, swimming, small and large group games, as well as choosing some of our traditional camp activities for the week. Camp is an electronic-free zone to allow campers to interact with nature, engage in creative-outdoor play, and build solid relationships with other campers and staff.

Week long activity classes will be chosen at the start of camp and are age-appropriate. The choices could include archery, fishing, crafts, nature, swimming, hiking, art, drama, and more. Campers will also enjoy lunch in the dining hall with great staff and new friends. One lunch will be a cookout in the woods with their cabin group!

Afternoon special events will promote problem-solving, cooperation and learning in an exciting theme-based variety of activities that will encourage creativity, provide unique experiences, and be just good, wholesome fun!

Register by June 25 to reserve your child’s spot for $90. After that, the cost is $100.

You can register online (new this year) or download our day camp form to register by mail. Contact us if you have any questions!

Ready

Get 'ready for anything' this summer! Our theme comes from 2 Corinthians 9:8

God is able to make all grace abound to you so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

This verse comes from a whole section about Paul encouraging believers in Christ to be cheerful givers towards God's work in the world. Many people think this just applies to money, but it also includes our time and talents. God created us to work, and He created us to do good work! What does that look like? When your parents remind you to do a chore, do it joyfully and to the best of your ability, not grumbling, complaining, and sloppy quick just so that it's done. When your little sister is annoying you and begging you to play with her, do it with gusto! Play to make her happy and not shoving her away. I'm sure there are many other things that you can find to apply this principle.

Jesus came to earth as a human, but was still fully God. He taught us how to live as the humans God created us to be, sacrificed himself on the cross, and was raised from the dead so that God could fix us completely. God also gives us the grace to be 'ready for anything' including the difficult things in our lives, like facing our fears, insecurities, or heartaches. The Holy Spirit lives in Jesus-followers and gives us the ability to be overflowing in good work. 

Ready? Set.... Go!
