Get Pumped Up at First Christian Church!

Kidcam is excited to partner with First Christian Church on Robert and Christian. This location is two doors down from the library on Robert in between Gause and I-12. Campers will enjoy the same 44-year Kidcam programming & staff and committment to summer excellence. First Christian offers Kidcam large indoor classrooms, outdoor playing fields, and the perfect space for our summer fun. Weekly field trips & swimming and a curriculum built around Kids Choice will help make up the perfect Kidcam summer.

Campers swim 3 times a week at Pinewood Country Club and take one day for off-campus field trips.

Kidcam’s engaging weekly themes are action-packed with activities that promote fun, fitness, friendship, and creativity each week of camp.
