Teen Day Camp
The Bible tells us that teenagers have been fearfully and wonderfully made by God (Psalm 139:14). And even though they may be lost in their sin, they can be made alive through Jesus Christ (Eph 2:5). And to be alive in Christ is to be His workmanship, made for good works (Eph 2:10).
At TDC 2019, every camper will learn from God's word that they were made to BELONG, made to FOLLOW, and made to SERVE.
What is TDC?
Teen Day Camp is a high-energy, relational, all-day, fun summer camp experience exclusively for Jr. High students entering grade 6-8.
At camp, you'll make new friends and hang out with awesome camp leaders. You'll play crazy games, go on afternoon adventures, win prizes (hopefully), and cap the week off with a trip to Canada's Wonderland.
But most importantly...
You'll meet Jesus! The most amazing person in the world. And you'll learn about him from God's Word, the Bible. Our prayer is that each student who attends TDC will come to know God and His amazing love, which will result in a life forever changed.
TDC is for students ENTERING grade 6,7,8

On the first day of camp, Monday July 29th, we’ll be visiting the Junction Climbing Centre in London. Each camper MUST submit an online waiver in order to climb. Even if you think your child will not want to climb, you still need to fill out a waiver just in case, and for our records.
If they choose not to climb on that day, that’s fine, but they will still need to travel with us, sit and watch. Visit www.junctionclimbing.com to complete the waiver.
Tuesday; Laser Quest or swimming at Thames outdoor Pool.
Wednesday; Laser Quest or swimming at Thames outdoor Pool.
Thursday; Canada's Wonderland
Important Camper Information
FIRST DAY: Arrive early on the first day (8:30 am) as registration always takes a little bit longer on Monday. Campers will get their t-shirts at this time. Campers will get to choose their own small group and Wonderland group so they can remain with friends.
Your child will receive a coloured bracelet at registration, and it may be different than the colour of a friend. Please encourage them not to panic, those bracelets are only for choosing participants for group games during our session time, it does not mean they have to be separated from their friends.
FOOD: Same as school, campers will provide their own lunch and snacks each day. Please make sure all food is peanut-free. Bring a reusable water bottle with you as we have a water fountain on site. We will provide a snack for the campers on Tuesday & Wednesday. Students can pack food to eat on the bus to and from Wonderland.
CLOTHES: Campers should bring a bathing suit, towel, indoor/outdoor footwear,
and backpack with them each day to accommodate the various activities. They will be swimming on either Tuesday or Wednesday.
SWIM TEST: Please note that a swim test is required at Thames Pool to swim in the deep end where the diving boards are.
CANADA'S WONDERLAND: All campers will be chaperoned by an adult or high school leader.
Please go over the following rules with your child before the trip:
- All students must remain in their groups, with their chaperone at all times. For example,
if one student needs to use the bathroom, everyone in that group must go. Same applies for rides.
- All groups will meet up at the front gate at 7:00 pm sharp to depart back to the church.
- We will make up groups during the week and try our best to put friends together and those with similar ride interests. We cannot guarantee that each camper will get to do every single ride/attraction they desire.
