A Summer of Fun... One Week at a Time!
Looking for some fun for your children this summer? Have them spend the summer with friends going on field trips and exploring all the fun our campus has to offer.
Why spend your summer at school?
- high-quality, licensed Christian Day Camp for ages 2-12
- your student's friends are here
- we go on a lot of field trips
- we have a playground, gym, baseball field, softball field, football field, and running track
- our team of fun, caring believers love summer as much as your children
- we spend time in the community giving back through service projects the kids choose
- you can still attend DMCS specialty day camps if you are in Lion's Club - we handle the transportation and give you a discount
The best part is you are not locked into choosing our program for the whole summer. You only pay for the weeks you need us. Our flexible scheduling lets you send them to grandma's or a residential camp for a week without having to pay for child care on top of it. Those special times are important for a child's development, and we support that.
Little Lions Club is geared for preschool children ages 2 through 5. Three-year-olds and older go to the park once a week and have a few special trips throughout the summer. We also stick to the same basic routine each week to allow children to feel secure and happy. We also incorporate extended outside time and water play. Please note that the camps for 2's and 3's are full. Contact Lisa Mickelson for more information.
Cubbies Club is for students entering kindergarten or 1st grade. Most of our summer is spent outdoors and going on field trips 2 times a week. Some of the places we'll go this summer include Pump it Up, local parks, the Science Center of Iowa and we will go a splash pad once each week. Every week has a theme to keep things fresh. This program fills up quickly, so enroll soon.
