Opening Registration begins inside the church building at 845 on Monday. Bring your child and their soccer ball and we’ll give you their t-shirt (to wear Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday), confirm pickup persons authorized and medical information, and introduce you to their coach. The coach will walk you down to their field where you’ll pickup the child on Monday at noon as well as drop off on Tuesday morning. We will have a filled cold water bottle waiting for them at their field with their name on it!
Can I watch my kid on the first day?
Sure. Parents can watch from the parking lot after drop off until you and your child are comfortable.
Do I bring a water bottle?
We provide a water bottle for each child. On Monday it will be filled with cold water and waiting for your child on the field. They will fill it up multiple times during the day. You’ll take it home on Monday afternoon and bring it back full on Tuesday morning.
Do I need to stay the whole time during Camp?
No. Please enjoy your morning and be back at noon for pickup.
Where can I buy Soccer balls/cleats/shin guards?
I’ve purchased items from Academy Sports in Smyrna and Play It Again Sports in Murfreesboro and been very pleased with their quality and longevity.
Is the Camp just Soccer?
We provide a well-rounded experience including crafts, music, and a Bible lesson taught by experienced teachers involving your child in the story of Jesus love for them.
Can you tell me more about the BBQ?
On Sunday we want to celebrate the fun we’ve had all week with a free community BBQ with games, dunk tank, bounce houses, and more. You’ll receive an invitation during the week and feel free to join us with a friend! We’ll begin with worship at 10:30 where the children will sing their Camp song and then have the festival after.
