Wildside Camp

WILDSIDE-PATCH

WildSide Camp

WildSide is our junior high camp for campers who have completed grades 6 through 8. During the week at WildSide, your camper will become better equipped for his or her walk with Christ through many opportunities to discover who God is and what He does in their lives.

Every aspect of WildSide is designed to challenge campers to develop their faith. Through our fun and exciting experiential learning model, campers develop a deeper understanding of God and His will in their lives. Campers make new friends and are surrounded by caring mentors. Each year the WildSide experience is handcrafted to meet the need of campers in a culturally relevant way.

We know that God is going to do powerful things through our time together and are confident that He is already pre-registered to come.

2017 camp dates: July 9 – 15

  • WildSide Camp fees $335
  • Early bird camper discount (through May 15) – $25
  • Volunteer staff: $85

Frequently asked questions

Do you have financial assistance available?

Yes, don’t let financial need keep your child from missing out on summer camp. Daybreak has an active campership fund that individuals donate to each year. If you need assistance please email rich@daybreakcamp.org or call the office at (831) 335-2756. We would love to talk to you and offer the help you need so your child or family can experience camp. We do not turn anyone away.

When is my balance due and can I pay by credit card?

There are a variety of payment options. Your balance may be paid online through the registration website while you register or you can return to pay. You may use VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express or E-check, you may also mail a check to: Daybreak Camp, 6676 Rose Acres Lane, Felton, CA 95018. Please put your camper’s name in the note field when paying by check.

Your camper’s balance must be PAID IN FULL prior to the beginning of camp. If you are not able to meet this requirement for any reason, email rich@daybreakcamp.org or call the office at (831) 335-2756.

What if someone else is picking up my son or daughter?

For the safety and well-being of our campers we request that if you, the parent or guardian, cannot pick up your child, please email registration@daybreakcamp.org indicating who you have authorized to pick up your camper.

What is the food like? And what if my child has food allergies?

Camp offers high-quality, healthy, kid-friendly food. For any special dietary needs—including allergies—there is space on our online registration form where you can indicate any such allergies or dietary restrictions. These are then compiled and given to our food service staff. For Adventure Camp, these dietary concerns are also given to the cabin leaders so they can assist the camper.

What if my child needs to take medication while at camp?

All medications will need to be checked in with the nurse and must be in original packaging with the doctor’s instructions. The nurse is responsible to administer all medicines at the appropriate time. No medications are allowed in the cabins, the only exceptions are epi pens in cases of severe allergies and inhalers.

Does my child need spending money?

No, at Daybreak all snacks, crafts and ancillary items are provided in the cost of camp. Please do not send any money with your camper.

Can my child request a bunk mate?

You can make a bunk mate request on our online registration form for Adventure Camp. Most campers make a bunk mate request. Please know we will do our best to accommodate all requests but it is virtually impossible to do so. We do honor bunk mate requests for WildSide and FDC under special circumstances, such as a participant being new to camp and coming with a friend.

Can I visit my child at camp?

Your trust in us to provide the best possible camp experience for your child is something we take very seriously. We request that family and friends not visit campers and staff during camp; visiting can often disrupt the camp by dividing our focus and causing homesickness.

Can I call or email my child?

Yes you can email your camper. The email address is mail4camp@daybreakcamp.org. Please place your child’s name in the subject line.

Remember, your child will not be able to email you back.

If it is urgent that you talk to your child you can call the office at (831) 335-2756. For after hours calls there will be an emergency cell number given to you in the confirmation email.

Can we send mail to our camper?

Yes, our address is:

6676 Rose Acres Lane
Felton, CA 95018

Mail is delivered on a daily basis.

What if I need to cancel my child's week at camp?

This is a text block. Click the edit button to change this text.

Cancellations must be made prior to June 15. The $85 per camper deposit is non-refundable if cancellation is made after this date. Refunds for payments collected beyond the nonrefundable deposit are not issued for any cancellation of camp made within the two weeks prior to your camper’s scheduled week. In the case of a medical emergency, or if you have any questions or concerns, please call Rich at (831) 335-2756.

Can my child have a cell phone at camp?

In our increasingly connected world, we find camp is a natural respite from endless amounts of useless information. Camp is a place where relationships are developed in a Christian environment. The use of cell phones can be isolating and somewhat anti-social, and are not allowed at our camps.
