The cost of this program is $230 with a $50 deposit due at the time of registration.

* Space is limited. Please choose only one overnight session.

Overnight camp participants will receive a Summer Camp t-shirt at the end of their camp session. The cost is included with registration.

Jay Novicki programs: Year-round

Jay Novicki Camps provide participants with special needs an opportunity to make new friends, enjoy the outdoor setting and grow in faith.

Participants will enjoy a fun camp experience including activities such as a hay rack ride, boating and fishing, a cookout, creative arts project and sharing in prayer and worship. An accessible golf cart, hay rack and pontoon boat make activities available for all, including those who use wheelchairs. 

Day Camps are usually four hours long and give participants a taste of camp. Come join in the fun of boating and fishing, cooking a tasty meal over the campfire, studying the Bible, praying together, creative arts and more! Each month will bring new activities and a new theme; and at only $10/session you can’t afford to miss out on the fun!

 

Since the Jay Novicki Program has been generously subsidized by a donor, the cost for the program is just $10 for Day Camp. Full payment for Day Camp is due at the time of registration. Reservations will not be honored until payment is received. Spaces are limited and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration deadline for all events is one week prior to the event.

We use UltraCamp for registration. The first time you set it up, you fill in a lot of information - contact, medical, emergency contact. Every time after that, you just update information. It's pretty intuitive, but if you have any trouble, contact our Registrar, Jessica. We're here to help!
