Christ Church is proud to present a one-week, full-day Vacation Bible School (Summer Day Camp) for children from Rising Kindergarten through Rising 5th grade.
Monday, July 6 to Friday, July 10, 2020 from 9:00am – 5:00pm
Christ Church (West Campus) | 140 Green Pond Road, Rockaway, NJ
Montclair Shuttle (Roundtrip)
We will be providing a shuttle from our Montclair Campus to our Rockaway Campus (site of VBS) for the entire week at a cost of $30. Tickets are limited, so don’t wait! If you would like to take advantage of this service, please select “Montclair Shuttle Roundtrip Fare” when registering.
$65 for the first child and $45 for each sibling or guest thereafter. This is our Super Early Bird Registration rate, only available from (February 15–March 1).
Vacation Bible School (Summer Day Camp) will be happening at Christ Church’s West Campus located on 140 Green Pond Road, Rockaway, NJ from Monday, July 6 to Friday, July 10. To assist our families’ work schedules better, drop-off will be between 8:45am–9:15am and pickup will be promptly at 5pm.
All participants in Vacation Bible School (Summer Day Camp) are required to be fully potty trained. While we do recommend parents of our younger ages, such as Kindergarten, provide additional clothing for “accidents,” consistent or daily accidents will be addressed directly with parents.
Yes! However as was the case last year, spaces are limited so early registration is encouraged. You will need to purchase a shuttle ticket at online registration to take advantage of this resource. Once all slots are filled, a waiting list will be made and all are welcome to be added to that list.
No. Due to proper child/staff ratios we cannot accept same-day registration at Vacation Bible School (Summer Day Camp). Christ Church has a requirement to abide by state guidelines regarding the handling of large numbers of children and adults. Therefore, to ensure that all of these requirements are met, all participants must be preregistered by the deadline provided.
Our Vacation Bible School (Summer Day Camp) has an on-site Camp Nurse at all times while activities are in session. This is typically either a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), Registered Nurse (RN), or Doctor (MD). If there is a medical emergency requiring EMT or hospital assistance, it will be up to the attending Camp Nurse to decide the appropriate course of action for each incident.
Yes! On the child registration form there is a location to specify if your child has a special need. There is also space provided to communicate what that special need is.
Once registered, one of our staff members will contact you to talk further about the needs of your child. Also, if you would like to discuss whether VBS is a good fit for your child before you register, please contact us at KLewis@ChristChurchUSA.org.
No. While we are happy to provide two small snacks (AM and PM) for each child, we are requesting parents provide a packed lunch every day for each child to prevent any allergies or dietary issues. Please still alert us to any possible allergies on your registration form so that we can be aware.
At Christ Church, we will promote your child to 6th grade prior to VBS in July, therefore they will not be eligible. However, there are various summer activities they will be welcome to participate in! For more information, please contact Teen Directors EJ Frain (Rockaway Campus) at EJFrain@ChristChurchUSA.org or Erwin Rodriguez (Montclair Campus) ERodriguez@ChristChurchUSA.org for more information about our Middle School program.
Please pick your child/children up promptly at 5pm (or 5:30pm for the Montclair shuttle) as we do not have any extended care available beyond this time. Failure to do so may result in additional late fees.
Yes. Parents are welcome at all times to be a part of the Vacation Bible School (Summer Day Camp) experience, however, if you need to be with your child throughout the week, we ask that you go through a standard background check in order to participate with their group. Our background procedures are required for all individuals 18 and over to ensure a safe and secure environment.
