York Community Day Camp is a 4- week summer day camp for children from York City and surrounding areas who are entering grades 1–6. Providing safe and stable care for students is our highest priority. The vision of the Christian-based camp program is to share Jesus with children from our area while providing them with a structured and nurturing environment for 7+ hours each weekday. The goals of the day camp are to develop a Christian community among the campers, to experience weekly field trips to community parks and public places for recreation and to learn life and leadership skills that will serve them throughout their lives. York Community Day Camp is a ministry of Messiah Church of York, and governed by an independent board of directors representing local churches, the community and parents of campers.
A typical week at camp includes daily Bible studies using a Christ-focused curriculum. Camp staff lead fun hands-on lessons to teach Biblical principles and challenge campers to apply them in their community. Music, dance, crafts and physical recreational activities compliment the classroom instruction and expand the daily learning. Water days and outside team games such as basketball and gaga ball are provided daily on the Messiah campus. Weekly field trips supplement the learning experience and reinforce the value of community.
