Waitlist Information

Please understand that many groups fill up. Once registration has started, campers can be added to our waitlist. If you wish to add your name to the waitlist, you can create an account and add your name to the specific weeks. You are not required to pay the registration fee if you are only signing up for the waitlist.
How will you know if you get a spot for a particular week?
If a spot becomes available, you will receive an email from the financial office and will have 48 hours to accept or decline the spot. Many families who are on the waitlist at the time of registration eventually move to a registered spot before or during the summer. 
As a reminder, only the $30 deposit per week holds a spot. 

Completing Registration

At the end of the registration process, your account will NOT say 100% complete (unless you pay upfront IN FULL). Do not be alarmed if your account says, for example, 75% complete. Also, once you press submit, the system could say “working” as if it is still processing. If you receive a confirmation email with the weeks you are registered or your card is charged, you are done and may close out of the window.

What is Camp Adventure?

Summertime should be a wonderful time for kids. We’ve planned eight great weeks of camp for the boys and girls in your life that will make their summer days the greatest days of the year. It’s a fun, safe place for kids. Here’s what we’ve planned!

There are eight weeks of day camp centered around the beautiful wooded campus of Shades Mountain Community Church in Bluff Park, Alabama. Camp is from 9:00-4:00 each day for grades K5-8th and 9:00-1:00 for ages 3-4, and we also have an early and late program for grades K5-8th (see details under the early/late show). The facilities are great, just right for an awesome time all summer long. You’ll love it here. 

For the 2024 camp year, our camp is for campers entering grades K3-8th, and they enjoy learning a lot as they have a great time.  They go home feeling that they’ve spent the day with good friends who really care about them as individuals as well as an important part of the group. It’s just the thing for kids enjoying their first camp experience, as well as for “seasoned pros” who have previously been to camp. We’re planning everything carefully to make each week great. We expect most weeks to fill up, so plan on selecting the weeks at the time of registration so you won’t be disappointed by a full camp.

Why Camp Adventure?

It’s the people at camp who make those memories. Parents tell us our staff makes their kids feel loved and important. We work to help campers build good relationships with adults and other kids. Camp is like a big family whose members encourage and strengthen each other. We’ll do what it takes to make sure your child “fits in” and feels at home with the other campers.

Just wait until you see what we’ve planned for your kids. We’ll make sure your child has a safe and fun time each day at camp!

Once you register, we’ll send you a complete Camp Information Packet in May with all of the details you’ll need to know before camp begins. Also, look at the “important documents” section for the latest information. Camp is more than a vacation; it’s the best summer of your life! Parents tell us their kids can’t wait. Weeks fill up fast, so be ready for registration day!
Attendance at Camp Adventure is open to all children regardless of race, color, religion or ethnic background. Please remember that Camp Adventure is a Christian camp that teaches Biblical principles to our campers.

What is Jr. Adventure?

This camp is designed with our younger campers in mind (ages 3-entering 1st grade in the fall of 2024) and will provide all the fun and excitement of our regular camp, but in an environment that is just for them. They’ll have all of the fun of each of our themed weeks but they’ll have a camp rally that’s all their own, waterslides just their size and counselors who love to get down on their level and play. We think your littlest camper will love what we’ve got planned.
  • Ages 3-4: Hours are 9-1. Carpool begins at 8:45 and runs until 1:15. Campers must be three years old by May 1st to participate and must be potty-trained
  • K5-1st: Hours are from 9-4 with the options for early (7:15-8:45) and late care (4:15-5:45). 

Get ready for the best summer of your life!
