It’s Jungle Rapids time on Friday! Each camper is encouraged to bring flip flops or water shoes for the park. The asphalt and sidewalks get really hot. Please make sure your child’s name is on EVERYTHING! A change of clothing and a towel is needed also. On the first Friday that your child goes to Jungle Rapids they will receive a t-shirt. They need to wear this t-shirt EVERY Friday. Please make sure your child’s name is on their shirt!! Let’s not forget the sunscreen! Feel free to “lather” up your child before they come to camp. We will reapply if the permission slip is signed [K – 1st grade]. When you send sunscreen, please put your child’s name on the tube.

Our Program and Policies
Wilmington Christian Academy Summer Day Camp is a ministry of Grace Baptist Church, located at 1401 North College Road, east of the I-40/Gordon Road interchange. We provide a recreational day camp filled with enjoyable activities and learning experiences. It is staffed by experienced professionals who have dedicated themselves to working with children and providing a program filled with exciting activities in a fun, safe environment. Trained personnel will provide emergency care if needed.
WCA Summer Day Camp provides a recreational program for children of parents who need summer childcare. The camp’s mission is to provide each child with a loving atmosphere designed to help the child develop physically, socially and spiritually, and to increase the child’s interests in recreational activities.
With any grouping of children, control must be maintained for safety and program continuity. Appropriate measures will be taken to ensure control and safety in the camp. Parental support is essential to achieve these goals.
Our 85 acre camp has excellent equipment and facilities for a variety of recreational activities. These are used in a positive manner to encourage children to actively participate in a well-rounded program. Our facilities include athletic fields, a well-equipped gymnasium, inviting playgrounds, computer labs, and a library.
WCA Day Camp offers activites that make our program unique. In order to form an appreciation of new experiences, all children are encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities. These include field trips to area businesses and sites of interest, bowling, aerobic exercises, water activities, indoor/outdoor games, library time, sports skills, skating, and visits to the water park. A calendar of events is sent home monthly.
Children are encouraged to bring their own “special toys”, if they so desire for personal play time. Personal items must be labeled with the child’s name, and the teacher should be made aware of the item.
Lunch is provided everyday by WCA. Snacks are to be provided by the parents. A variety of snacks and beverages will also be available from the Summer Snack Cart.
