As a part of our Mission and Outreach Programs, we have held a Summer Day Camp for over 35 years at our property located on Talahi Island that we call “Point Pleasant”. The IPC Day Camp runs for 8 weeks.

The Point Pleasant property offers your child a great place for a day camp experience this summer with a combination of excellent facilities, staff, and programs for an outstanding week of fun.

The Day Camp Program

Camp in 2022 will be comprised of eight one-week sessions from June 6 through July 29.  Camp will be from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday (campers may arrive at 8:30 a.m.). Important—We will have camp on Monday, July 4.
This year, we are celebrating Mr. Frankie Daniell’s 30th year at IPC Day Camp! Generations of Savannah area families have attended camp under Frankie’s leadership over this time. He has decided to retire from the full Camp Director responsibilities but will be at camp serving in 2022 as the Certified Challenge Course and Facilities Director. The new 2022 IPC Day Camp Director is Kenneth Crowe. Kenneth worked at camps in high school and college and served as a certified Challenge Course and Experiential Education facilitator at Berry College for many years. He is an elder at IPC and is excited and honored to continue the long time, Christ-honoring tradition at IPC Day Camp.
Independent Presbyterian Church Day Camp offers boys and girls ages 5 to 11 both an outdoor camping experience and a well-planned program. The purpose of the camp is to meet the needs of the whole child in a loving and compassionate, yet challenging, environment that emphasizes physical,    social, and spiritual development. There will be a limited enrollment of approx. 90 campers per session: a camper to staff ratio of 5 to 1. This excellent ratio and the quality of the staff make IPC Day Camp a wonderful experience for your child.
The campers will be divided into age groups, and they will have scheduled, supervised activities all day. Each group will be led by a high school staff person who will be with them for the whole week. The activities will be directed by college staff who also develop great relationships with the campers as the week progresses. Some of the activities already planned for this summer’s program are:

Bible

In keeping with the Christian emphasis of camp, there will be a Bible lesson each day. There are also assemblies of the whole camp with singing and a short devotional each morning and afternoon. The morning assembly helps campers and staff gear up for a day filled with activity, and the afternoon assembly provides a chance to reflect on the good time had that day before heading home.  The devotional talks focus on the Gospel or “good news” of Jesus Christ.

Swimming

All campers have a daily opportunity to swim with their particular group in the Point Pleasant pool. They are closely supervised by their leader and a Red Cross certified lifeguard.  The pool is always a favorite spot to visit each day of camp in the hot weather.

Arts & Crafts

This fun time is designed to stimulate minds and enhance creativity with activities such as painting, bead work, friendship bracelets, etc. Tie dye tee shirts have proven to be a hit and are a part of each week’s  A & C activities. You may order camp logo tee shirts to tie dye (see registration form) or send your own.

Sports & Games

A time of rigorous activity ranging from traditional team sports to crazy games and contests. With games tailored for each age group, we have everything from “Duck, Duck, Goose” to water polo.  Octoball has become a favorite.

CANOEING/KAYAKING

The marsh provides a sheltered and wonderful place for this great activity. It’s a time of adventure and enjoying the creation around us. We even see dolphins from time to time. The kayaks provide an opportunity for older campers to learn some solo paddling skills.  Our deepwater dock on Turner’s Creek provides all-day access to the water.

THE CHALLENGE COURSE

This course is made up of both high and low elements designed to build self-confidence and promote unity and encouragement among the campers. Our high elements include the Climbing Tower, Pamper Pole, Burma Bridge, and on the quad course (built in 2017), four exciting elements  –  the Multivine, Pirate’s Crossing, Cat Walk, and Flying Squirrel.
