Camp FAQs 

How is Play Maker Day Camp unique?

Play Maker Day Camp is a ministry of Aldersgate Methodist Church. Our goal is to provide an excellent camp experience in a Christian environment. Every day your child will engage with a classic Bible story, participate in camp songs and worship, and grow in their faith.

What kinds of activities will be at camp?

We believe that kids should enjoy an active summer. Our name, Play Maker, is in part about making sure we provide a safe and fun camp experience. Campers will have the chance to participate in various sports, play outdoor large group games, be creative outdoors, make crafts, learn camp cheers, participate in skits, have water days, have wheels days, and enjoy playground time. These are just a few of the fun camp activities awaiting your child.

What do campers get with registration? 

Every camper will receive an age appropriate Bible, and a great summer camp experience!

Campers can either bring their lunch or buy lunch through the camp on select days.
