Schaumburg Christian Day Camp exists to provide a physically and spiritually safe environment where campers can learn, play, and grow.
SCDC has been providing excellent care to the residents of Schaumburg and its surrounding areas for over 30 years. We have a large staff of qualified, Christian individuals; many of which hold degrees in education. Our campus is situated comfortably in the middle of Schaumburg, which gives us access to wonderful field trip venues and beautiful parks.
In addition to a Christ-honoring atmosphere, competitive programs, and below-average pricing, SCDC has the most flexible schedule on the market. Bring your children three days this week and five the next. No problem! We also don’t have those unnecessary activity fees and deposits.
My child didn’t come to Day Camp; can my tuition/fees be reimbursed?
Can I pre-pay the summer? Can I pre-pay activities and camps?
Yes, you may pre-pay anything you wish. If you do so before May 4th you will receive a 10% Early Bird Discount on everything you pre-pay. But please be aware that Day Camp fees are non-refundable and be sure to plan accordingly.
How do I pay for camps and activities?
How do I clock my child in/out?
There are two kiosks for clocking your child in/out in the Day Camp lobby and at Late Stay. Simply type your attendance PIN, select the campers you wish to check in/out, and press submit!
Can I change the number of days my child attends during the week?
What do the campers do if it’s too hot to go outside or is raining?
If it’s raining outside or the heat index is 100º or higher, our campers follow a schedule that keeps them having fun indoors. As soon as the heat or rain is gone, they get to go back outside.
What happens if my child becomes ill?
At Home - If your child becomes ill before coming to Day Camp, we require they wait 24 hours from A. the time their fever broke, or B. the last time they vomited before returning to Camp. Ill campers who are taking fever reducing medication cannot come to camp because they are still contagious.
At Day Camp - If your child becomes ill or is injured at Day Camp, they will visit our health office and we will contact you. In the event the illness or injury is severe enough, we reserve the right to call emergency services
To whom do I give my child's medication?
Please turn in all inhalers, EpiPens, and other medications (with instructions for dispensing them) to the Day Camp office.
How early can I drop off my child? How late can I pick them up?
Early Arrival is free and begins at 6:30 AM. Late Stay goes until 6:00 PM. Check out the Summer Starter Camp fees for more details concerning Late Stay.
How often do Day Campers go on field trips?
What happens if we arrive after the bus has left for the Field Trip?
In certain events we can provide you directions to the venue. If that doesn’t work, we will keep your child on campus and provide an alternate schedule for them to follow until their fellow campers return.
My child is not a Summer Starter Camper; can they go on the field trips?
Nope. Only Summer Starter Campers (SSC) may participate in the field trips.
Can my personal information be carried over from SCS’s files?
Unfortunately not. Please create a Day Camp account. After that, your information for Day Camp will only need to be updated from year to year.
Do SCS students have to pay the Day Camp registration fee?
Can Day Camp tuition/fees be billed to my SCS account?
The summer is almost over, can my registration fee be waived?
What is the dress code for Day Camp?
All dress is expected to align with the scriptural principles of modesty and association. Therefore pants & Capri’s must be loose fitting. All shorts and skirts must be loose fitting and extend to the mid-thigh. Shirts must also be loose fitting. Tank tops, halters, clothing with inappropriate advertising, and excessively worn/torn clothes are not allowed. Boys' hair should not extend over the ears, into the eyes, or over the collar.
What kind of food is available for lunch/snacks?
Our summer menu can be found on the parent dashboard!
Is lunch included in the cost of Day Camp?
No. We provide two complimentary snacks a day, but our hot lunch program is available for only $6.00. You can download our Hot Lunch menu from the parent dashboard.
Does my child have to be potty-trained?
My child is a Half Day camper and the field trip is running late. Will I be charged late fees?
Does my 3-5 year old have to take a nap?
Not necessarily. We have non-nap rooms for the 4’s and 5’s which you'll be able to sign up for on the first week of camp. Of course, we have found that most 3-5 year olds enjoy camp so much more when they get an afternoon nap.
My child lost something at camp; how do we find it?
The Day Camp office will be more than happy to show you our lost and found. However, campers must take full responsibility for all personal effects. BBC, SCS, SCDC, nor any staff member will be held responsible for campers’ lost, damaged, or stolen property. We encourage campers to keep all personal belongings in a bag and out of sight when not being used.
