JUNE 15-18, 2020 - Cancelled due to Public Health Emergency
We regret to announce that we've had to cancel Redeemer's Soccer Camp for 2020. It was a hard decision in the sense that we have held the camp for 8 years in a row, and we have as much fun as the kids do. But it was an easy decision in that it was our only option. We can't ask people to register their children for a camp in mid-June that would host 100 people when we still aren't able to gather in groups of more than 10 well into the month of May. We hope that you understand.
We will be returning the registration fees to families who have done so already. We look forward to the 2021 Camp and will leave the information below to share details of what our next Camp will be like.
We invite your child to enjoy a fun week of soccer and Christian fellowship at Redeemer Lutheran School.
Children ages 4 - 12 are invited to attend. The sessions will emphasize individual ball skills as well as fun games to put those skills into practice and develop teamwork. From fun introductory sessions for the youngest players to more intensive technical and tactical sessions for advanced players, all players are grouped by age and ability to ensure the best balance of fun, challenge, teamwork, and skill development. Our youngest campers will also enjoy VBS-style indoor activities including crafts and lessons.
MOMS & TOTS JOIN ON THURSDAY
Children ages 0 - 3, along with their parent/guardian, are invited to a special session on Thursday. This session is free. Activities will take place in the gym and on the playground, and are geared especially for the little ones. Snack included, as well as a picnic lunch beginning at 11am.
For our older campers, Thursday's line-up will include soccer skills (ages 4-12) from 9-10:30. From 10:30-11:30, we will get wet with fun water-related activities! We'll conclude our week of camp with a hot dog and chips picnic on the playground. Our littlest campers (0-3, along with parent) are invited to join us! Lunch begins for them at 11am, and our older campers (and families!) will follow at 11:30am.
EXPERIENCED COACHES & DEDICATED TEACHERS
Our Camp coaching staff is made up of experienced players who excel at sharing their passion for soccer with children. Our lead teachers have earned their degrees in elementary education. All have an enthusiasm for working with children.
DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP
On the morning of the 15th, bring your child to the school entrance at Redeemer. You will need to verify your child's registration at the table. At that time your child will be escorted to their team area by one of the group leaders. Your child will remain with their group and group leader throughout the course of the day until they are picked up at noon.
You will sign your child out by proceeding to their group area and signing the child out. If someone other than a parent/guardian is picking the child up we must know about it in advance. You'll pick up your child's camp t-shirt at Monday's pick-up. Children should be dropped off after 8:50 AM and picked up no later than 12:10 PM.
WHAT TO BRING
Shin guards (required)
Soccer shoes (recommended but not required)
Your favorite soccer ball (make sure your name is written on it). Under age 10, size 4 is best. Extra soccer balls will be available if needed.
Sunscreen before you arrive, if necessary.
A note about Thursday's water activities:
You may want to send a cinch-sack with extra sunscreen and a towel. Campers are encouraged to wear a swimming suit under their soccer clothes, if they choose, but no changing into swim gear will take place. Campers can simply choose to get wet in shorts and shirt as well! Water events will be more like "water balloon toss" rather than "swimming pool". Please label items sent along. We will do our best to keep "extras" organized!
*There is no need to bring water bottles and snacks. Water, Gatorade, and snacks will be provided.
In the event of light rainy weather, we will continue to run the camp. The camp participants are invited to keep participating as long as they are comfortable doing so. In the event of heavy rain and/or lightning and thunder we will go inside the Redeemer gym for inside drills and games, or until the weather passes and it is deemed safe to play again.
If the weather is so uncooperative (all-day downpour or lightning, thunder, etc) before the day’s camp even begins, we will cancel the day’s activities before children get dropped off. It will be announced on our website and Facebook page, if this is the case.
The fee for 4 mornings of Soccer Camp (4-12 year-olds) is $40.
The Early Bird Discount is $20/camper through May 31.
Families with multiple children will only be charged $70 maximum/family.
There is no charge for those attending Thursday's Moms and Tots program.
This fee helps to cover the costs of T-shirts, equipment and snacks. Your child's spot is reserved once payment is received. Please mail or drop off fees prior to first day of camp at Redeemer Lutheran Church & School.
