ABOUT THIS SESSION: Kids Camp is the perfect introduction to overnight summer camp for children. Kids can experience overnight camp without having to commit to a whole week away from home. By the time these campers "graduate" out of Kids Camp, they are super excited about going to the Junior Week session the following year.
We play lots of games each day. Kids Campers have a lot of fun while making memories that last a lifetime - they can be found canoeing, swimming, playing kickball, singing around the campfire at night for a rowdy campfire, attending fun action-oriented Bible classes, doing crafts, singing at worship in the evenings, and more. See some of the moments we've captured over the years by browsing through photos on Facebook.
STAFF: We are pleased to have Jonathan "Coach" Holland, Children's Minister at College Avenue Church of Christ (El Dorado, AR) serving as the Kids Camp session Director beginning in 2019. Many of our counselors and staff grew up attending Camp Kurios every summer as campers and chose to continue being a part of camp by helping to create a special experience for today's campers. A lot of our volunteers are also moms, dads and grandparents of current campers. Each and every one of our counselors and staff are individually selected each year by the Camp Directors under the guidance of the Camp Kurios Board of Directors. The application and selection process includes a review of relevant experience (most of our staff and counselors serve at Camp Kurios year after year) and multiple reference checks with trusted sources from those who personally know each applicant.
REGISTRATION AND COST
REGISTRATION: We encourage you to apply online. However, if you prefer to go the old school route, a printable application is available at campkurios.com.
COST: The cost for Kids Camp is an incredible value at $90 per camper for the weekend. Everything is included: lodging, food, snacks, crafts, and a t-shirt. The price that campers pay is much lower than the actual cost to hold camp each year and we depend on donations of Camp Kurios friends and supporters to fill the gap. Thank you!
DEPOSIT: In order to reserve your camper's space for this session, a minimum of a $20 deposit is due with your completed application.
WAYS TO PAY:
- Pay online - you can do this at the end of your application process using the online registration tool. You can also just pay the deposit online initially, then come back and pay the rest before camp starts. [See the note below about transaction fees.]
- Mail a check to the following address: Camp Kurios, P.O. Box 42, El Dorado, AR 71731
Paying the Full Balance: If paying only a deposit with the application, the full balance must be paid no later than the day your camp session begins. You are welcome to pay it in installments from now until then online if you'd prefer.
Note about Online Payment Transaction Fees: We are happy to be able to provide a convenient online payment option. However, there is a transaction fee associated with it. The fee is $3 per Kids' Camp session camper using the online payment feature. Rest assured, that even if you only paid the $20 deposit online today, when you go back to the site to pay your remaining balance later, it won't tack on another transaction fee - you'll just have this once for your entire registration cost. As always, mailing a check only costs a stamp. And an envelope. And the drive to the post office or walk to the mail box. And your time.
