After School & Summer Camp

Pre-Kindergarten through 5th Grade

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and with people.

Luke 2:52

After School

Our After School Program is currently full and we can no longer take requests for our wait list.

We understand selecting care for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. The After School/Summer Camp Program at Celebration can help make the decision easier. This program was founded in 2004 on the principle that young children flourish when placed in a nurturing environment. We offer your child a loving and safe haven – a home away from home. We are dedicated to teaching and ministering to Pre-K through 5th grade children with a desire that these children grow spiritually and come to know Jesus Christ in a real way.
OUR STAFF
Our teachers specialize in TLC – they are trained, loving and committed. Our staff is made up of enthusiastic leaders with a passion for touching the lives of children and a desire to work for the Lord in all they do. They are expected to fully engage and exemplify a high, strong, consistent work ethic and to be the hands and feet of our God.
OUR GOALS
  • Meet both the physical and spiritual needs of each child.
  • Lay a strong Biblical foundation that leads them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • Disciple them and encourage them to grow in their walk with Christ.
  • Meet the needs of the children in our ministry and their families.
  • Provide parents and caretakers with encouragement and Biblical principles.

Are you ready for a summer camp your kids will never forget? We are thrilled to announce Celebration will offer seven weeks of Summer Camp Monday, June 14 - Friday, July 30. We will be closed on Monday, July 5.

To say we are excited about this year’s epic Summer Camp theme, Secret Agent, would be an understatement. As the Holy Spirit has guided us through the development of the 2021 Summer Camp experience, He has blessed us with a level of expectation that exceeds anything we have experienced before. In our hearts and in our spirits, we are extremely excited about all that the children will encounter while going undercover.

The Secret Agent curriculum for this summer is creatively designed to encourage children to see that they can be a vital part of God’s great Mission to love others and to tell the people in their lives about His great love! Each week we will study a story from the book of Matthew and learn how to make the Mission of God known throughout the world. We will learn how Matthew became a disciple, discover who the greatest influencer for Christ was, and study how Peter's faith grew once he kept his eyes on Jesus.

While most programs for children place the focus on the activities, our model for success is built around the process. Our mission as a staff is to provide a nurturing, loving, and fun-filled environment that allows your child to actively engage in worship, teachings, and hands-on-activities to increase their knowledge and faith in Jesus. We believe this year's exciting program will drive home these critical messages in a meaningful, powerful, and truly memorable way.

Registration Dates & Time

This year, families will only have the option to register for all seven weeks. Parents will also be responsible for payment even if their child does not attend. Our goal is to limit our group sizes and serve the same children all summer long. I know change is hard and new policies and procedures do not always allow returning families to do what they have done in the past…but these are the decisions we have made to help us as we navigate through Covid19 and prepare for this summer. Celebration will not take field trips and right now we are anticipating having to continue requiring masks to be worn.

Registration will only be available on the days listed below so please plan to register on the correct day and time. Registration will take place in the Broom Tree from 12:30-2:00pm and 4:00-6:00pm on the dates listed below. We anticipate a line so please be prepared to wait as we meet with parents dropping off their application. Please note that we will not accept applications from families during any other time than what is designated in the information below. We did make changes to the process this year, so please pay close attention and plan accordingly when the application is emailed. Summer Camp Fees will be posted by February 15.

  • Monday, March 1- Summer Camp Applications will be emailed.
  • Tuesday, March 9 and Wednesday, March 10- Currently enrolled AFS families may register.
  • Tuesday, March 23 and Wednesday, March 24- Celebration Members and Returning Summer Camp families may register.
  • Tuesday, March 30 and Wednesday, March 31- New Families may register.

Once registration has opened, we ask that you check the website to make sure space is available. We will continue to receive Summer Camp applications by appointment.

Breaking Up Registration & Tuition Fees

We understand that registering your child for Summer Camp is a large expense. To help with the extra financial burden of the registration and upfront fees, we are offering families the option to split the fees into two equal payments. The first payment is due on the first day of registration; the second on Tuesday, April 27.

I know this is a lot of information to absorb, so please feel free to email, text, or call me with questions. To receive an application, please email Holly Mills at hmills@icelebration.org.
