Day camp is open to children going into kindergarten through sixth grade. Campers may choose to attend one or all four weeks of our five-day sessions. This fun and formative camp experience runs Monday through Friday, with the exception of the fourth and final session, which wraps up on Thursday afternoon. Camp days begin at 9 a.m. with check-in and opening ceremonies and conclude at 4 p.m. with parent pick-up or van transportation back to Rapid City.
Campers will check in with camp staff upon arrival and meet their counselors for the week. After flag-raising and prayer, campers will head over to Vespers, an outdoor amphitheater with ample seating and a breathtaking view of the lake below. Campers will hear any specific instructions for the day before settling in for a morning devotional and singing.
Campers will then transition to two rounds of outdoor activities -- with a healthy snack sandwiched in between -- before lunch. Following a nutritious meal, kids will have some quiet time to rest and regroup before beginning their selected track for the week. Campers may choose from four afternoon tracks that focus on specific areas of interest: Arts & Crafts, Music, Physical Education/Sports and Outdoor Education. A fifth and final track allows campers to spend one afternoon in each track.
Afternoon tracks run Monday through Thursday. On Friday afternoon, campers get to wrap up their final day of camp rotating between the lake and our giant waterslide.
Afternoon tracks run approximately two hours. Campers will receive some light refreshments and may choose from a variety of games on the lawn before parents arrive or the bus departs. On the final day of camp, campers have the option of buying ice cream, candy or a drink from the camp store.
Daily transportation to and from Camp Judson may be purchased for an additional $15. A van will depart First Baptist Church in Rapid City at 8:30 a.m. and arrive at Camp Judson at approximately 9 a.m. Boarding will begin around 3:45 p.m. for campers departing by van. Campers should arrive back at the church by 4:30 p.m.
