Day Camp Sample Schedule
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Morning Celebration?
During Morning Celebration, campers and staff start the day with dance, music, and praise! We do a few energizers - which are silly, high energy dances - and sing songs led by Gilmont's Worship Team. The Spiritual Advisor of the week will also introduce the daily scripture.
What do campers do during Activity Blocks?
Campers enjoy one of Gilmont's many activities. These activities are led by Gilmont's staff who are trained and certified, if necessary, in the activity. Campers participate in activities with their family groups.
What is typically served for lunch?
Our lunch menu varies. Examples of some lunch meals include chicken fingers and mashed potatoes, nachos, and chicken sandwiches and tater tots. Campers also have access to our salad bar and fruit.
What is typically served for snack?
For snack, campers are served a combination of fruit, cheese, or crackers (pretzels, animal crackers, etc).
What is Pavilion Time?
Gilmont's Pavilion is home to many recreation options for campers. We have 9-square, carpetball, gaga ball, giant chess and checkers, basket ball, hula hoops, chalk, and more. Under the supervision of staff, campers can choose which activity they want to enjoy.
What does Bible Study look like?
At the beginning of each Bible Study, the Spiritual Advisor of the week discusses the scriptural passage for that day and leads campers in a discussion. Campers then join their small groups for activities that teach the main themes of that day and how campers can apply the themes in their day-to-day lives.
Gilmont's Bible Study Curriculum is written so that campers discern who God is and what this mean for how they live their lives. Themes include kindness, forgiveness, hospitality, service, and love for God, others, self, and creation.
Can I drop off my camper before 9 AM?
Can I pick up my camper after 4 PM?
Unfortunatly, Gilmont is not offering late pick-up options for 2023 Day Camp. We understand things happen. If you find yourself running late to pick-up, please call Gilmont's office at 903-797-6400.
