Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be a Christian to participate in Maker Camp Junior?
Absolutely not! You do not have to be a Christian to attend, we welcome anyone who is interested in participating. Since it is hosted by a church, God and the Bible will be integrated into our projects, so hopefully you are comfortable with that.
Do you offer after-camp care?
Sorry, we can’t offer after-camp care. Many of our volunteer leaders will need to head to work or back to their families when camp ends, so we are unable to provide additional childcare after 12:15 pm.
How do I register more than one child?
You can register multiple children for Maker Camp Junior (1st-4th grade, June 18-22) through our registration portal: https://the-river.churchcenter.com/registrations/events/95021
Sign ups for Maker Camp (5th-8th grade, June 25-29) are separate and can be found here: http://rivermakercamp.org/shop/
What is your refund policy?
We hope you won’t change your mind, but we understand there are sometimes extenuating circumstances that come up between now and the beginning of camp. Because we are hosting this camp for only one week, and we’re trying to keep costs low for everyone, we can only allow refunds if they are requested by May 1st. After that, we can’t issue refunds since we will begin purchasing materials and preparing for camp.
What about food allergies for snack and the final lunch?
We will provide a nut-free, vegetarian snack for all the campers every day. We’ll try to include gluten-free and dairy-free options for those who need it. If your child has additional food preferences or allergies, please send a nut-free snack with them each day.
What should I send to camp with my child?
Campers should wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Each day will have some indoor and some outdoor time. Please have them apply sunscreen before they arrive, and bring a water bottle.
You don’t need to send anything else with your child, unless they need a special snack from home.
Please do not send cell phones or other electronic devices with your kids, as they are a distraction.
