Join us for the best summer yet!

Program Overview:

During 1st, 2nd and 4th Sessions, CedarS will be offering a special "Sprouts" program for toddlers and children who are too young to be in a cabin.  The Sprouts will enjoy supervised, age-appropriate activities during the day while their parents work.  At night, they'll sleep in the parents' assigned room/cabin.

Sprouts with parents who will be leading programs or helping in key roles will be admitted first.

Some kindergarteners or rising 1st graders may be ready to join the youngest camp cabins for selected activities during the day.  We can work with families to figure out what best meets the needs of the Sprout and cabin.

Sample Schedule:

  • 8:00am- Breakfast (with parent)
  • 9:00am-9:30am-  Bible-based songs, stories, and crafts
  • 9:30-10:30am- Activity #1
  • 10:30-11:00am- Snack
  • 11:00am-12:00pm Activity #2

  • 6:15pm- Dinner (with a parent)
  • 7pm- Evenings with parents (Sprouts are welcome to participate in hymn sings and other evening activities, under the supervision of a parent)

Sample Sprouts Activities:

Activities will be flexible, based on the needs of Sprouts.  We can work with naptime and diapering needs.  It may be that a parent jumps in to support their Sprout during the day, if an adapted schedule is needed.

Here are some of the activities that you’ll get to enjoy:

  • Swim lessons
  • Sing-a-longs
  • Crafts
  • Nature
  • Horse petting

Meal Choices:

A variety of kid-friendly foods are offered such as pizza, chicken nuggets, tacos, hamburgers, grilled cheese, and spaghetti.  Breakfasts have a main entrée, plus selections of cereals, oatmeal, eggs, and fresh fruit.  Lunches and dinners include a main and side entrée, plus daily salad and PB&J options.  Each meal comes with vegetarian and vegan options.


What our campers say

"I loved how before each activity, we had a ‘met’ to explain how Christian Science applied to that particular activity. The ‘met’ helped me understand that I could use Christian Science in everyday activities."

- Camper

"Every time I get to go to Cedars I feel like I get closer to God. I learn more about spiritual ideas and how to use them in my life. I feel like the people at Cedars are a second family to me. They are my home away from home."

- Camper

"I love going to Cedars because of the love that is demonstrated everyday by the kids and the counselors and other staff. Everyone cares for each other at Cedars and no one teases you or puts you down like they do in school. When I’m at a Christian Science Camp I see the way the world can be when everyone shows love to each other."

- Camper

"After being at Cedars, I understand better what the lesson says every week, and use it in my everyday life. I love the mets before every activity, because they help clear my thought so I can have more fun in my activity or if I'm scared, to help me to know that God is with me."
