Who Are We?
Circle P Day Camp is an extension ministry of Parkdale Baptist Church and has been serving our community since 1976. Our many trained and dedicated volunteers from the church work as a team to provide the best summer camp experience possible!
Campers, ages 6-12, enjoy a full week of crafts, games, sports, competitions, Bible discovery, singing, swimming and much more, FREE OF CHARGE!(children under 6 cannot be accepted)
40+ years of providing this free camp to the children in our community.
Our 2017 camp will be held the week of July 10-14, 2017.
If you would like to register your child for this summer’s day camp, our online registration will be open as of May 15, 2017.
Where Are We?
The camp is held at Ashfields Farm, a beautiful, 100-acre farm just west of Richmond. Open fields, fresh air, and a lovely country setting make it an ideal place for the wholesome activities of a Christian Day Camp.
Each day of camp the bus will leave the church at approximately 9:30 a.m. More children are picked up at their street corners along our bus route. Then they enjoy the pleasant 25 km journey to the camp. Children will be dropped off at the same stop between 4:30 and 5:00 p.m.
We take your child’s safety very seriously. All our volunteers have taken a child safety course and are required to have a police background check. We also have “camp nurses” who are fully trained in first aid.
Camp Activities Include:
Each child will create a special craft of their own, depending on their age. The crafts will involve skills such as woodworking, painting, stenciling, leather work, and string art.
The campers participate in various team sports and games that encourage good sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership skills.
Chapel Time consists of camp songs, Bible lessons, missionary adventure stories and memory verse competitions.
From Monday to Thursday, the campers will enjoy a supervised swim time at an indoor pool in Ottawa, before heading home.
On our last day of camp, campers’ families are invited to join us for the closing ceremonies at 5:00 p.m. The campers will perform some of the camp songs they have learned and team and individual awards will be presented.
After the closing ceremonies, there is a barbecue, for which we provide hundreds of hamburgers and hotdogs, drinks, chips, and dessert.
Contact us if you have any further questions regarding our camp or your child(ren)’s registration.
