Day Camp

A FREE community Day Camp where kids (completed K-6) enjoy dramas, games, live music, crafts, fishing, and friends.


Day Camp (June 13-16) 2017 – Friendship National Park

Bloomingdale Church welcomes all kids who have completed Kindergarten through the 6th grade (2016-17) to our annual Day Camp on June 13-16, 2017 from 9:30am-12:45pm. Register now or complete paper form at the main office or on first day attending camp (264 Glen Ellyn Rd, Bloomingdale).

Kids love the games, crafts, fishing, and story times with their grade level class, and the high-energy large group program with drama and music. This year’s nature theme, “Friendship National Park,” encourages children to be a friend in order to have good friends. Day Camp promotes the qualities of Character Counts (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship). Bloomingdale Church has been offering Day Camp as a free service to the community for 38 years.

Past Camp highlights include a youth band, animated story times, tie-dyed t-shirt crafts, group games outside in the sunshine, fishing at nearby Westlake Park, and free iced coffee for adults at check-in.
