NCCS SUMMER CAMPS
Get ready to have the summer of a lifetime!
NCCS Summer Camps ARE ON for 2020, beginning May 26 – July 31! We are offering a 100-percent, risk-free refund policy (if camps have to be canceled due to governor closure), in addition to the utmost adherence to Governor Kemp’s criteria for summer camps. These protocols include social distancing measures, daily temp checks, state-of-the-art disinfection systems and MORE. We’re offering ALL the summer fun, buckets of lifelong memories, and lots of outside time … in a small-group format with your child’s health as the top priority. Find full safety details HERE and the full camp schedule + registration HERE.
NCCS Summer Camps, which are open to the community and to NCCS students, are purposefully designed to be engaging, fun, and relational, providing a safe and nurturing environment for 3-year-olds through rising high-school seniors.
Our array of camp themes allow students to grow in the areas of academics, arts, athletics, and student life, as they dive deep into explorations of the world around them. And, of course, having FUN is always at the center, whether it’s coding or crafting, sports or STEAM. From our high-energy Camp Eagle to Driver’s Ed, camp life at NCCS pushes students onward and upward in their areas of interest.
The best part about summer camps at NCCS? The same high standards for student safety, emotional support, and biblically based spiritual growth apply to our summer programs that apply to our school all year round. Here, students are nurtured, cared for, and empowered to have the BEST summer of their lives! Our experienced counselors and top-notch instructors are dedicated to creating a happy, secure environment where each camper feels confident to explore, discover … and make memories that last a lifetime.

SUMMER CAMP POLICIES
Campers are accepted until camps are full. Space is limited, so please register early for the best availability! Fees cannot be prorated for partial week attendance, and ALL fees are non-transferable between camps.
2020 COVID-Compliant Policies
- Summer Camps will be available May 26 – July 31, with strict adherence to Governor Kemp’s criteria for summer camps.
- We will stagger pick-up and drop-off times to follow social-distancing protocols. Daily attendance will also be tracked.
- Parents / guardians will remain in their vehicles during camp drop-off and pick-up. Parents / guardians will not be allowed within camp areas or inside any buildings on campus.
- Temperature checks will be done on all camp staff and every camper before admittance into camp each day. Campers and staff must have a temperature below 100 (which is lower than the CDC guideline of 100.4).
- A deep-cleaning fee of $15 per half-day camp and $25 per full-day camp has been added to the rate for each camp, to cover the employment of two additional facilities members who will be solely responsible for cleaning and disinfecting all camp areas daily.
- A state-of-the-art hydrostatic sprayer graded to kill the coronavirus will be utilized to disinfect all camp areas. The disinfectant has a two-week kill-time for viruses, and the campus will be retreated every two weeks.
- Additionally, every camp area will be disinfected daily, including all toys, supplies, desks and surfaces.
- Sharing of food, drinks and toys will be prohibited.
- Touchless hand-sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp, and regular hand-washing will be practiced.
- All off-campus field trips are being canceled, to keep campers onsite in our controlled, socially distanced, and safe environments.
- Camps will be spread across campus to allow for social distancing.
- Each room will be limited to nine or fewer people, including camp leaders.
- Face masks will be optional for camp leaders; parents can send face masks with their children, if they would like to. (The camp is not requiring or providing face masks for campers.)
Child Release | Custody Issues
If there are any custody issues, or if a parent is denied contact with a child, our staff needs to be alerted promptly, and we must be given a copy of the court order to keep on file. NCCS Camps cannot release a child to an individual who is not listed on the authorization form. Please list any and all people who might be picking up your child during camp. Staff members will be checking identification to verify the identity of each pick-up adult. Please have a driver’s license ready when you sign out a camper.
Due to the unprecedented impact of the coronavirus pandemic, NCCS is offering a 100-percent, risk-free refund policy for ALL camps held during the summer of 2020, in the event that camps are canceled due to social distancing restrictions. Some activities or field trips may be altered or replaced to comply with safety protocols at the time of the camp.
During normal summers (not 2020): Refunds can only be issued THREE weeks prior to the first date of camp. After the three-week point, refunds cannot be issued as supplies and staffing have already been secured.
Refunds during normal summers (not 2020) are as follows:
- Cost of a camp minus a $50 processing and handling fee.
- Cost of a clinic minus a $25 processing and handling fee
Our greatest desire is for each camper to have a wonderful, safe time at NCCS Summer Camps. In the event that a camper’s behavior does not align with this mission, the camper will be clearly informed and given every opportunity to adhere to the policies of the school regarding self control, respecting the rights and property of others, and proper conduct. However, we reserve the right to dismiss any camper from the program whose behavior is detrimental to him/herself, to other campers, or to school property.
Modesty in dress is expected at all times, and appropriate clothing is required. The use or possession of alcohol, drugs, tobacco products, or weapons is not allowed, and any camper in possession of such items will be dismissed from the program, and the appropriate authorities will be contacted. No refunds are issued if a camper is dismissed.
It is the parent’s responsibility to monitor the daily health of their child. If your child is ill, he or she may not attend the program. If your child has a fever of 100 degrees or more, vomiting, diarrhea, or any other contagious symptoms, he or she may not attend the program. When a child shows signs of illness at camp, the parent will be notified and must pick up their child immediately.
If a child is to receive medication while at camp, we must have a completed authorization form on file to administer medication. All medication must remain in the original container from the pharmacy.
In the event that a child is injured while attending camp, the following steps will be taken to ensure the proper care for the child:
- Minor scrapes and cuts will be cleaned and bandaged by a counselor.
- If there is an extreme emergency, 911 will be called. Parents will be immediately notified. A staff member will go with the child to the hospital if transport becomes necessary. The staff is not allowed to transport a child in their private vehicles.
- Accident reports will be completed for all accidents and must be signed by a parent.
- NCCS Camp does not provide medical insurance for its participants.
In the event of an emergency or a natural disaster, the following procedures will be in effect:
- All campers will remain at the site until a parent or other authorized person can pick him or her up.
- In the event of a site evacuation, campers will be taken to a local emergency center. The location will be posted on the front entrance of the building. Efforts will be made to contact parents if an evacuation becomes necessary. Summer camp staff will remain with the child until he or she is picked up.
Every year, we encounter many deserving children in need of financial assistance to attend camp. Through the generous giving of individuals and corporations, we are able to offer scholarships to some of these children. If you would like to invest in the life of a child with a tax-deductible donation, contact Patrick McDonald at 770-975-0252, ext. 195.
