Summer Camp & Summer Preschool

During the summer months, Messiah has programs available for children aged 3-9 years old. All children participate in weekly music classes (on Mondays and Tuesdays), Chapel services with Pastor Lynne on Wednesday, and assorted field trips - generally one trip/week on various days.

The pre-school (for children 3-entering Kindergarten) program is similar to our year round program with stories, lessons, art projects and plenty of time to interact and play with friends. Weather permitting, the children spend as much time as possible outdoors.

Our Day Camp program is designed for children who have completed Kindergarten through 9 years of age. In the mornings, the children participate in a sports program and in the afternoons, they work on arts and crafts. They, too, spend as much time outdoors as possible and take part in the weekly field trips. The Day Camp is available 2, 3, 4 or 5 days/week either full or part days.
