To keep a relationship with


you have to keep watering the tree! — Camper

DEAR PARENTS, With a vision of Creating Space for Life Change, our entire staff looks forward to welcoming your camper this summer!    Camp is a safe place for your child to enjoy a break from the fast-paced normal routine of life and unplug from distractions. Our programs are intentionally designed to enable each camper to learn invaluable life skills and to grow in faith and understanding of God’s love. Campers discover how much fun life can be without the distractions of technology.    While at camp, campers build confidence as they make lasting friendships and overcome fears in a supportive environment. They learn how to encourage others as they spend time in cabin groups discussing what they learn in the worship times and through the Bible program.    Our summer staff is prayerfully and carefully chosen to Love Kids and Share Jesus. They undergo extensive screening before they are hired and complete detailed training before summer begins. Staff guide campers through growing in their faith, understanding God’s love, and what it means to have a relationship with Jesus.    As we embark on our 73rd summer of ministry, staff are excited to provide a life-changing week of camp for all campers!   Ray Warren  Executive Director

Registration Instructions & Policies



Day campers love Covenant Harbor. From the moment they jump out of the car, day campers are enthusiastically welcomed into new experiences, relationships, fun, and growth. They throw their backpacks on a hook and start the day on the playground or at a carpetball table with friends.

They can’t wait to hear the big idea in the session and sing their favorite songs with the worship leader. Day campers love to go to the camp store. Kids meet new friends, soak up some waterfront time, learn something new at electives,and before they know it, it’s the end of the day. They’re back on the playground, waiting to get picked up to do it all again tomorrow.

Every week of day camp welcomes campers entering 1st-7th grade, and each week is purposefully programmed to be different from the last. We provide the best experience for every camper, and offer age-appropriate activities and lessons. Campers thrive in our exciting daily structure. Every day is a little unique at Day Camp. While campers are trying out a new activity, talking with their counselor, winning a carpetball tournament, or eating lunch with their friends, they’re learning about themselves, each other, and God. Whether your camper comes to one week or many, they’re sure to learn, grow, and have a blast!

Campers entering 1st-7th grades can enjoy the chance to come to Day Camp every week of the summer!

We create teams of campers entering 1st-3rd grades and 4th-7th grades, but there are plenty of times where everybody is together, making it a great opportunity for siblings, neighbors, and friends to be at camp together!

Classic Adventures. Campers can’t wait for summer at Pier 30. They are so ready for the engaging experiences each year holds. They dream of joining in their favorite camp activities like swimming, banana boating, rock climbing, arts and crafts or carpetball. They can’t wait to belt out some campfire songs while roasting marshmallows with their cabin, or to pie their counselor with shaving cream during a messy game. Many campers also try to guess what new adventures await -– maybe a new big game, new lunch menu, new lip sync battle or something completely unheard of -– created just for summer 2020. There may even be special options only available for this age group of campers! Each year brings new

memories that make Pier 30 the best option for this summer. Big Impact. Pier 30 is more than fun and games. Pier 30 grows with campers entering 4th-9th grade. The schedule offers many opportunities for campers to learn about themselves, others, and Jesus. Daily worship sessions engage campers of this age through crazy games, worship music, and relevant, life-changing Bible teaching. Cabin groups allow campers to learn with their peers and their incredible counselors. The activity options invite campers to challenge themselves and to grow in skills, independence and confidence. Whether campers notice right away or not, their holistic experience at camp impacts them for a lifetime.

to God I have been all my life! — Camper

High school campers have a six night program intentionally designed and crafted just for them. BaseCamp is distinct. With deep teaching, unique challenges, and more independence, our oldest campers are able to experience camp in a whole new way.High school students are in a time of personal growth and change, so the week is focused on learning about who they are and God’s plan for their future. Special BaseCamp activities, unique speakers and meaningful discussions provide a healthy balance of challenge and

encouragement and help students through their unique journeys.

BaseCamp goes beyond fun. The week is fun and exciting with access to all the classic camp activities: waterfront, campfires, arts and crafts, high ropes, low ropes, boating and more. But what really makes BaseCamp memorable are the relationships — with peers, with staff, and with Christ. Campers take time out of their busy summer and slow down, meet people who could become lifelong friends, learn about themselves, what they are capable of and who God has created them to be.

The Alpha program is a two-week experience focused on discipleship and daily service. Alpha is hard work. Alpha campers make camp happen, serving the ministry of Covenant Harbor in areas such as maintenance and food service. Campers sweat, get sore, learn a lot and build meaningful relationships with their peers and our staff. Every Alpha camper receives a letter certifying they have served 60 community service hours upon completion of their session. Alpha campers are still campers. Of course, there’s also time to play! All of our camp activities are open at different times throughout the session.

The Alpha team also has access to Alpha-only activities. Alpha campers have a ton of time to hang out with each other and our staff, with more freedom in their schedule than other campers. You’ll want to come back. Many Alpha campers return year after year because they love the experience, but also because of the relationships they build and the growth they experience. Our collegiate Alpha staff work alongside campers while guiding them through intentional times of learning, relevant Bible teaching and deep discipleship. Due to the work component of the Alpha experience, Alpha campers are required to be at least 15 years old.
