Summer Enrichment Camp

The Summer Enrichment Camp is a strategic effort by Lighthouse Ministries to eliminate the loss of learning experienced by many students in our neighborhood over the summer months. Students will find this summer camp to be jam-packed with hands-on learning experiences.

Schedule

The Summer Enrichment Camp is held Monday through Thursday each week for seven weeks beginning June 10 and ending in July 25.

Students can count on nutritious meals, exercise, art, bible lessons, and interactive educational experiences as part of the daily routine. 

Each Thursday will be a day of special activities on site or field trips. Look for more information on this in May.

Camp Curriculum

MEALS

Breakfast and lunch is provided each day. Breakfast is served promptly at 9 a.m. upon the students’ arrival.

EXERCISE

Every student participates in 20 to 30 minutes of exercise each day.

EDUCATION

No desks here! Students have their minds and their bodies engaged as they learn by doing.

ART

Working with clay, exploring dance and creating music for an hour a day will keep the students creative side engaged.

RECREATION

Each day, students have at least 30 minutes of time to play outside on the playground or in the gymnasium.

BIBLE

Our staff leads students through a re-telling of the greatest story in all of history!

Camp Staff

The Lighthouse will be hiring High School and College interns as staff for the children enrolled. There will be at least one staff assigned to every five students!  We believe this will help the students remain focused on the tasks at hand and make for an excellent learning environment. The staff will work, learn and play with the students enrolled from the beginning of the school day until the end.

If you are interested in serving as a staff this summer please visit our Camp Staff Page to review expectations and to apply!

Camp Luz

Children enrolled in the Summer Enrichment Camp are also registered for a week at Camp Luz. A Christian camp located just 30 minutes west of Canton. Girls attend Girls Camp and likewise the boys attend Boys Camp. Our male and female Lighthouse staff serve as staff at Camp Luz the week their students attend.

Registration Process & Cost

Registration Process (unfortunately we are no longer accepting registrations for Summer Enrichment Camp.  You are, however, still able to register for our field trip program )

  • Complete the general registration form online and submit a deposit of $20 per child
  • Complete the Title 20 application to see if the state of Ohio will cover your child’s camp fees. The deposit is returned once the Title 20 application is submitted and the Lighthouse has received notification of acceptance or denial from ODJFS.
  • The camp fee is $350 per child, which is removed if you qualify for Title 20 to cover fees. All parents who don’t qualify for Title 20 are then eligible to apply for a Lighthouse Program Scholarship where they can submit the amount they feel they can afford for the program.
  • You can download the Parent Handbook here.

* The actual cost of the camp is $500/child

Please note that across all Lighthouse  programming, spots are reserved first for children who live inside the Lighthouse neighborhood (within 10 blocks of the Lighthouse). If spots remain open or unfilled, the Lighthouse will open spots up to to students and families who live outside of that 10-block radius. A more complete explanation of how this works will be emailed to you once your child is registered or you can reach out to Tasha McClain via the contact info given below with any question you may have.

June 1, 2024 Deadline

  • Camp registration fees are due by June 1. If the camp fee is not fully paid by this date, your child will, unfortunately, lose their spot and any money you have paid, will be refunded and the next child on the waiting list will be admitted.
  • All registrations are non-refundable after June 1. After this point we are too far in the process of putting together staff, class sizes and paying for services.
