Solid Rock is a not-for-profit, interdenominational Christian youth camp owned and operated by Solid Rock Ministries, Inc.
Information for Winter Day Camp 2020
Winter Day Camp 2020 includes lots of fun activities! Tubing, crafts, games, snow fort building, plus a daily snack and bible lesson. We will have warm up times by the fire (and indoors, depending on temperatures) but most of our day will be outdoors.
Please dress your child ready to play outside for several hours! We recommend a baselayer (long-johns), a mid-layer (cozy pants, not jeans, fleece sweatshirt), and an outer layer (warm waterproof snow pants and coat). Your child should have warm socks, snow boots, gloves, and a buff or scarf. Please send an extra pair of gloves and socks. Also, remember to dry your child’s snow gear each night.
Indoor time is carefully planned to avoid large groups sharing space. Campers will not be asked to wear face-coverings. Solid Rock staff will be wearing face-coverings at specific times, such as serving the snacks.
If your child is experiencing Covid symptoms, including fever, cough, loss of taste or smell, please do not send them to camp. If your child has been exposed to a person who has tested positive for Covid in the last 10 days, please do not send them to camp. We will happily issue you a refund!
Solid Rock’s COVID-19 mitigation for the summer of 2021 has not yet been set as the situation continues to change. Below is some information from the summer of 2020. We look forward to seeing you in 2021!
FAQ for Summer 2020 and Covid-19
Will campers and staff be wearing masks?
Campers will be asked to wear face-coverings at specific times, such as waiting in line for food or snackshop. Solid Rock Staff will be wearing face-coverings during times of close proximity with campers not in their group, and during chapel times. Campers will not be asked to wear face-coverings during most outdoor activities.
What about hand-washing and hand sanitizer?
We have added outdoor handwashing stations to the Lakeside Dining Hall, the Wagon Train Cafe, and at the barn. Additionally, we have hand sanitizer at activity areas, cabins, the entrances to buildings, and food areas. Your child is also welcome to bring their own hand sanitizer they can carry with them.
Will there be fewer campers in each cabin?
It depends. We have a wide variety of cabin sizes and layouts. Instead of looking at numbers only, we are considering how much space there is between beds, how much ventilation is possible, and how much floor space there is for campers. In general, our camp numbers will be lower to prevent crowding in the cabins, the dining room, and the chapel.
What about Wilderness Camps?
Wilderness Camps are running as scheduled!
Will any day camps be offered?
Yes, we have two day camps, Wilderness Munchkin camp (k-1st grade) and Wagon Train Munchkin/Primary (K-3rd grade).
What’s the plan for the Family Camp?
We know routines have been turned upside down, plans cancelled, and milestones missed. Our Family Camp is designed to help families spend quality and peaceful time together exploring and playing outdoors, but also to give parents some time without the kiddos.
Can I send my child for multiple weeks?
Yes! We would love to have your kiddos join us!
What about the snackshop?
Snackshop will be open! We will have a variety of snacks, drinks, water bottles, t-shirts, and other fun stuff for sale. You can purchase a snackshop card for your child to use throughout the week.
My child was already registered for one of the cancelled camps. What should I do?
You have 4 options.
- Transfer your registration to a day camp, a camp in July, or family retreat.
- Get credit towards 2021 camps at guaranteed 2020 prices.
- Donate your payment to support Solid Rock and receive a tax receipt.
- Receive a refund.
What precautions are you taking regarding COVID-19?
Our group sizes will be smaller. We will be avoiding or changing big group games that promote physical contact or use a shared object like a ball or flags. Indoor time will be minimized and we are increasing the frequency of our cleaning and sanitizing. Incoming campers are screened before check-in. We are working within state and CDC guidance for cleaning and sanitizing equipment and activity areas. We will be washing hands and/or using hand sanitizer before and after meals and before and after each activity. And most importantly, we will be outside as much as possible, exploring and enjoying Solid Rock’s forest, fields, and lake! Please let us know if you have any questions!
