OVERNIGHT Family Camp
Since 1977, FVCA (also known as Riverwoods) has been providing a free summer camp for qualified children in the Fox Valley. This summer FVCA is offering a FREE Family Camp for families whose children qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch at their school. Family Camp will be held at our 85-Acre campus in St. Charles. Family Camp will run from Saturday at 11 am to Sunday at 7 pm.
WHO: Families whose children qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch at school and live in the U-46, D300, D129 or D131 School Districts are invited to participate in Family Camp.
WHAT: Family Camp at the FVCA campus in St. Charles includes all meals and camp activities: canoeing, biking, nature walks, sports & games, arts & crafts, opportunities to grow in faith, good food and great fun!
You will have a full cabin just for your family including a living room with a kitchenette and three bedrooms. You are welcome to register all of the members of your household to participate. You must have at least one adult participate for every five children.
FVCA is accredited by the American Camp Association This accreditation means that Fox Valley Christian Action thoroughly reviews operational practices, seeks the wisdom of other camp professionals, and continually makes improvements to comply with more than 300 written standards. Only one-fourth of the camps in the US have earned this mark of distinction and FVCA is committed to the highest standards in health and safety for your children. This includes carefully screening and training all of our staff. All of our staff are at least 16 years old and most of them are 18 or older. We operate in small groups, usually no more than 7 kids per staff member and staff members are never alone with your children. Designated staff members have been certified in First Aid and CPR. Accreditation also means we do practical things like wearing helmets when we ride bikes and life jackets anytime we’re in a boat! We are also committed to the highest standards of health and safety regarding Covid-19 including daily health screenings for all staff and campers, regular hand sanitizing, masking, proper social distancing for all activities, and consistent sanitizing of our vehicles and facilities. We are proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association.
4th of July Holiday Weekend – NO CAMP
WHY: Family Camp provides an amazing opportunity for kids and families to grow and experience new things together in a safe and fun environment. This may be the first time that you and your children get to paddle a canoe, ride on a pontoon boat, or create an art project using only things you find in the woods! Camp at FVCA also provides a unique opportunity to experience God, to learn more about Jesus, and to grow in faith if you choose to do so.
