Summerama Day Camp
Summerama serves Rockford area families by providing a fun and caring day camp experience for kids. Campers choose from a variety of activity focuses each week and participate in daily crafts, games, Bible lessons and singing.
What makes us the best day camp in Rockford?

Summerama is our day camp program for children entering grades 1–6 in the fall. Every week offers four exciting choices for activity themes or focus. Campers may register for as many weeks as they would like! While campers pack and bring their own lunch each day, we provide plenty of drinks throughout the week to keep campers refreshed, and every camper goes home with a picture to commemorate their week. Summerama Day Camp runs from 10 a.m.–3:30 p.m. Monday–Friday. Extended care is available starting at 7:30 a.m. before camp and after camp until 5:30 p.m. for an additional cost.
For campers who are too young for Summerama but still want to have fun this summer, Totarama is offered for preschool children who are three through five years old. Totarama is from 9:30–11:30 a.m; no extended care available for tots.
UPDATE: Our volunteer team signups are now full for the 2021 season.
