Summer Camp Starts July 6th!
Westminster Academy offers summer programs for rising JK-12th grade boys and girls from across Memphis. Our mission: to use the summer months to nurture the hearts, minds, and bodies of campers so that they would know the Lord Jesus Christ and worship him with all of their being! Every camp features a devotional time for campers to explore what God says about himself, our world, and how we fit in it. Campers will see God's truth in action through all sorts of camps: sports, service and stewardship, the arts, and technology. Come join the fun!
***If you sign up for a morning and afternoon camp, there will be complimentary supervision in the break for students. No food will be provided; send a sack lunch.
In order to create a safe environment for students to play, learn, and interact, we have made some difficult but important decisions for summer camp:
- We are delaying the start of camps to July 6, so that we can be in compliance with local and national recommendations for social distancing
- All travel camps have been cancelled for the summer (Civil War Battlefield Tour, Outdoor Challenge, Memphis: Learn & Serve)
Based on recommendations from the CDC and public health authorities, policies and procedures we are putting in place include:
- Temperature screenings upon arrival
- More rigorous self-screening requirements (for example, fever-free for three days and seven days from onset of symptoms)
- Regular and thorough handwashing
- Hand sanitizer stations in all classrooms, bathrooms, and gyms
- Daily cleaning and disinfecting protocols for rooms and equipment
- Limitation on interaction of different groups
All staff, coaches, and counselors will receive training in the new protocols to help ensure a clean and safe environment for campers.
