Age Groups: Campers are divided into two groups for game times and field trips. The younger kids range from K-2nd grade while the older kids range from 3rd to 6th grade. Campers will need to stay with their designated group.

Age Groups: As was previously mentioned, kids are divided up into groups ranging from K-2nd and 3rd to 6th. Campers will need to stay with their age groups throughout the day and may not opt out of group activities or field trips unless an early departure from camp is necessary. At that point, the child will need to be picked up from camp prior to the departure for the field trip.

Employees: All employees at Bellevue Christian Summer Day Camp have completed successful background checks. Day camp workers include BCS teachers, substitutes, aides, former students, and current students.
