Our signature 9-week, full-summer day camp runs from 7:30 am – 6:00 pm, Monday-Friday just outside of Rock Hill, SC. All of our day camp programs are age-specific with campers being divided into classes by age:
Campers can attend for one week or for multiple weeks of the summer – it’s up to you and your kiddo! Our lead counselors work diligently to design unique activities each week of Summer Camp. Challenging activities are the building blocks of each program; our staff adds the Cramazing to every day of Camp!
Camp Canaan is located just south of Charlotte, NC. To assist with easy drop-off and pick-up of your camper, we provide a shuttle service from the Big View Diner in the Ballantyne, NC area. For more information regarding our daily shuttle service, please review the Camp Canaan Parent’s Handbook.
Campers will need to bring a lunch and water bottle (clearly marked with their name), swim suit, towel, water shoes/ sandal with a backstrap, suntan lotion and other items that specifically pertain to trips. Campers will also have an opportunity to purchase additional snacks in the afternoon at Canteen. A full packing list can be found in our Parent Handbook.
While we do our best to include as many activities in a week as possible, some factors affect what activities are completed in a week including but not limited to: weather, time, age of child, camp program and behavior.
This year Junior Day Camp is all about FUN! The campers will have the opportunity to experience more adventure activities like Archery Tag, exciting Relay Races, and Water Slide Kickball! Junior Day Campers will be able to develop close relationships with their counselors through small groups in age specific categories to allow a more comfortable and safe environment to grow in Christ, in relationships with others and to just have FUN!
Senior Day Camp is all about skills and activity in 2017! Our campers will develop new skills while participating in activities like fishing, kayaking, drama, team building, and swimming. Our Senior Day Camp utilizes small groups to allow for a more comfortable and safe environment for campers to have FUN, build relationships with their peers and counselors, and grow in Christ!
“To my children, Camp Canaan IS Summer! They look forward each year to coming back to reunite with old friends, to build new relationships and be challenged to step outside their comfort zones. Every day is an adventure! As a parent, I value the outstanding staff that directs them and guides them spiritually. It’s great to see the bonding and growth among the campers and counselors from year to year.”
