What To Bring & Dress Code

Our goal is to provide every child with the same experience, tools and as much one on one time as we can. This means we don't require much to be brought from home. We will provide breakfast, lunch and a mid-afternoon snack each day. Please make sure to let us know about any food allergies.

Swim days will be announced and will only be only one afternoon. On swim days days your child will need to wear a bathing suit under their clothes and bring a towel. No pool toys or flotation devices will be allowed. Please let us know the first day of camp if your child cannot swim as we will not have one on one instructors. Lifeguards will however be on duty.

FAQ'S - Frequently Asked Questions

1. What will my child/children learn at RCLA Camp?
RCLA provides a faith based program and atmosphere where we teach about Jesus and preach the Gospel. This summer we will be learning about and focusing on Ephesians 6 'Putting on the whole Armor of God'. We encourage families to read this chapter together and talk about what was learned at camp that day. We will also have crafts, sports and performing arts classes every day.

2. Do you provide extended care hours?
Yes. 'Before Care' is available starting at 8am every day and 'After Care' is available until 5pm every day. Please make sure to let us know when you sign in on Monday.

3. Where will my child/children be all day?
The majority of camp will be held on the church property. Middlers and Juniors will walk to the park for some activities in the afternoon. Pool days will be announced if and when we are going.

4. Will my child/children need to wear a bathing suit?
Only on pool days, bathing suits should be worn underneath clothing. We will provide the schedule as soon as we coordinate with the City of Lynwood Parks & Rec Dept.

5. What will you serve for breakfast/lunch?
Breakfast will be a quick grab and go, muffin or nutrition bar with juice and fruit.
Lunch will vary each day but will consist of a protein, fruit or veggie and snack item.

6. When will breakfast/lunch be served?
Breakfast will be served at the check in station at the front of the church upon arrival to camp each day.
Lunch will be served to all campers between 11:30 - 12 every day in the fellowship hall.

7. Will my child/children be outside all day?
No, we will have indoor as well as outdoor activites, but we do recommend sunscreen be applied everyday. We will have sunscreen at camp to reapply during the day.

8. Who will be my child's/children's counselor?
We have a volunteer staff of college kids from a program called The Navigators as well as RCLA counselors in training.

9. Can I pick my child/children's group?
Unfortunately not. We will place children in groups based on their grade with 2 or more counselors per group of 8 or less. We find when siblings and other family members are placed in different groups new friendships are made and it cultivates a culture of inclusion for all.

10. Can I pick my child/children up early from camp?
Yes, we do prefer campers stay all day so they can participate in all our activities, but we understand busy schedules. Please make sure to let us know on the first day of camp when you sign in and we will make sure your child is on campus and ready at the time agreed on.
