Summer Living is Easy with FLCP’s fun and flexible Summer Camp Programs
Summer Day Camp Program
NOTE: We have turned off the online registration form. You can still enroll in camp by completing a paper registration form and emailing a pdf of it to email@example.com.
(entering Grades 1-8)
Summer Camp is a great way to keep your child active once school is out. But finding the right place for your children, and your family, is important. Our programs were developed with families in mind, allowing for flexibility for the parents and variety for the kids. Campers are grouped by age to enjoy group and camp-wide activities, which include: music, drama, arts, sports, games, crafts, nature, and dance.
Flexible Schedules to Fit the Needs of any Family
Our Summer Day Camp program is designed to meet the needs of any family in the greater Portland, Maine area. Our ability to offer single day or full week packages, enables us to accommodate your schedule and the interests of your child.
Qualified and Experienced Counselors
Many staff members have worked in the summer day camp for up to five years and have trained in the CIT program at First Lutheran; they are selected for their experience, training and knowledge in the fields of camping, education and youth leadership. Staff is carefully screened for employment and certified in First Aid, CPR and DHHS water safety. A low counselor to camper ratio allows for a more individualized experience for the campers.
Integrated Approach to Leadership, Variety and Fun!
Older campers and CIT members are involved in leadership learning like planning and implementing camp-wide activities and events while younger campers get variety in programming including hiking, games, crafts, nature study, swimming, sports, and the arts. In addition to normally scheduled camper activities, each week of camp will have its own theme that will serve to enhance a fun camper experience.
