Summerama serves Rockford area families by providing a fun and caring day camp experience for kids entering grades 1–6 in the fall. Campers choose from a variety of activity focuses each week and participate in daily crafts, games, Bible lessons and singing.

Our 2023 theme is Summerama at the Museum! Camp activities vary week to week, but all will give your camper the chance to discover the HEROES of the Bible.
