Day Camp at Spruce Lake

41.2266° N, 75.2676° W

  1. Spruce Lake Day Camp provides a growing experience for children ages 5-15 in a nurturing environment and natural, outdoor setting. Campers will have so much fun exploring nature, playing games, making crafts, taking off-site trips and swimming daily in the pool. They will develop new relationships, embark on exciting adventures and enjoy clean, wholesome fun. Our program is designed to help children develop good character and recognize their importance in the family, community and the world – all from the context of a biblical worldview.

Tuition includes two snacks a day and camp T-shirt.

COVID-19 Modifications for Social Distancing

Our groups will be constantly encouraged to spread out, (practice “social distancing”).  Our games and activities will be adjusted as needed, so that no one will need to touch each other.

Our daily guideline will be a no touching policy, so as not to spread any germs. Our group sizes
will be smaller and consistent. Large group times will be minimal with plenty of space to spread
it out.

a.  Be Outside. The air is fresh, we have hundreds of acres of God’s creation to
explore. Fresh air, sunshine, humidity, and heat are all things that we have plenty
of here in the Poconos. We believe that kids in the outdoors can stay healthier and

b. Scheduled Activity Times – Activities will be more strictly scheduled to limit
interaction between groups and allow for sanitizing equipment as needed.
