Sending your child to camp is a significant decision – one that requires trust, clear information, and financial commitment. Our desire is that you would feel comfortable with each of those steps, so that your camper could experience a transformative week at Covenant Point this summer!
Trust. Covenant Point is fully accredited by the American Camp Association – a continuous process that includes 300 rigorous standards for health, safety and program quality. Our carefully chosen staff is equipped with two weeks of training in child development, risk management, first-aid/CPR, programming, and spiritual formation. They’re here to serve as caring role models, to bring passion and fun to each day of camp, and to make Christ real to our campers through personal and trustworthy attention. A volunteer nurse or physician is always onsite, and our kitchen staff is ready to manage dietary allergies and restrictions safely.
Clear information. The summer 2015 brochure, paired with our website , are your best resources for logistical details, videos that show what camp is like, and our programming philosophy. We are also just a phone call or email away, and ready to field any questions you may have about camp.
Financial commitment. It is our commitment that finances should never be the reason a child does not come to Covenant Point – a week at camp is just too important to allow money to be the only obstacle. If you are in need of assistance, contact us and we will be ready to help. If you can help, our scholarship fund is a meaningful way to offer a life-changing gift to another child.

This summer, we have a staff of 32 fantastic young leaders on board to serve at Covenant Point. Many of these counselors, program directors, waterfront staff, and trips guides are choosing to say “no” to internships or more income at a job back home in order to lead and grow at camp. The value of serving in a camp setting is something that generations of staff members have known for a long time, and it was affirming to read more about this benefit over “summer internships” in the New York Times:
“[In encouraging my daughter to seek a summer internship] I forced myself to parrot conventional wisdom because there was at least a chance that it was true. But the clinching argument came from my daughter’s impassioned defense of camp counselors, and her outrage that someone glancing at résumés would believe that a 20-year-old [intern] who fetches coffee at Google is more impressive than one who spends days and nights nurturing, teaching, organizing, comforting and inspiring.”

To be entrusted with the lives of children, to learn how to function as part of a dynamic and complex community, and to improvise as a leader carrying out our mission as each day unfolds: these are experiences that foster immeasurable growth of all kinds! If you’ve chosen to work at camp at some point in your life, I bet you know what I mean. Thank you for prayerfully supporting this summer’s team of staff members, and their choice to participate in the vital work at Covenant Point.
The sixth annual World Autism Awareness Day is April 2, 2013. Every year, autism organizations around the world celebrate the day with unique fundraising and awareness-raising events.
At Covenant Point we want to celebrate by announcing our very first ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) Family Camp Week a Covenant Point family camp week designed to build community and support among families who have children with autism.
The week will take place August 6-10, 2013, and will cost only $150 per family. The remaining funding is raised through our Annual Triathlon Fundraiser, which brings in annual funds to enable ministry to campers with special needs.
