Our Mission

Our mission is to create an experience that you can’t get in the cul-de-sac.  Camp Kerusso adventures involve a broad range of activities, including archery, laser tag, gaga ball, fishing, mini golf, blob, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking...and more!  It is our goal to create a safe environment where adventure, sports, and recreation facilitate lifelong friendships and an opportunity for kids to discover what it means to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Cancellation Policy:

All cancellation/change requests must be made in writing (via letter or email only).

At registration, all campers are charged a one-time, non-refundable $25 registration fee (included in deposit) per week registered. This fee covers the registration processing and transaction fees and all administrative costs associated with registration. This is an assumed risk and will not be refunded for any reason.

Through March 31st, all cancellations are covered by the $25 registration fee (included in registration deposit).

Beginning April 1st, each registration cancellation will result in the complete loss of your deposit ($79). We will waive this fee if you transfer your camper's registration to another available week not previously registered for.

We will not be able to issue refunds or transfer registration to another week within two weeks of the scheduled camp date except in documented cases of camper illness, injury, or a death in the immediate family.

*If for some reason camp were canceled due to COVID-19 or a similar emergency, you will be refunded your entire camp fee minus the $25 registration fee per week registered. If cancellation occurred mid-week, the refunded camp fee would be prorated appropriately.

Camp Policies

  • One T-Shirt per camper for each 2 weeks of camp (maximum of 2 T-shirts per summer) 
  • $2 Canteen credit
Clothing/Gear:

Campers should come ready to play hard, have fun, and get dirty! We require closed-toe shoes (no Chacos or heelys, please), a modest swimming suit (one piece or tankini), and appropriate t-shirts. Each day campers will need to bring sunscreen, a refillable water bottle, and lunch (except Friday). While lifejackets are provided, we HIGHLY encourage your camper to bring their own. Make sure that your campers name is on everything he/she brings to camp.

NO ELECTRONICS ALLOWED. Our goal is to help campers unplug, if we see cell phones, tablets, etc... your camper will be asked to put it away. Camp Kerusso is not responsible for any lost or damaged property.

Lunch:

SUMMER 2021 UPDATE: Unfortunately there will be NO shared food items this summer, which means NO Pizza Friday. Instead, tuition will include a $2 canteen credit. Campers will bring their lunch packed in an insulated lunch box with an ice pack for ALL days of camp, Monday - Friday. Campers should have a refillable water bottle every day.

Flex-Payment Plan:

At initial registration we only require a deposit of $79 per camper for each week of camp. After you are registered you can use the "Account Login" link on the main page to continue to make payments for your registered weeks. The final balance for each week of camp is due 14 days before the start of your week. If we have not received full payment at that time, your registration will be canceled and no refund will be issued. We will send out a balance due reminder email.

*Note, new this year, you will NOT be auto billed, you must manually submit payment.

Financial Assistance:

A limited number of scholarship assistance is available for families who cannot afford camp on their own. To apply for assistance please just email us and give a reason for your request in 300 words or less.

Gift of Camp:

We would love to provide the opportunity for some children to experience camp who otherwise would not have the opportunity. If you feel led to give, please indicate the amount when registering. Any amount is appreciated. Click here if you are interested.

Special Needs:

Although we desire to accommodate all children, we, unfortunately are not able to accommodate children who are unable to function within our camp/group structure. Please call Hannah Laible (678) 575 7391 with any questions.

PLEASE EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION when driving through the neighborhood on your way to and from Camp Kerusso. Out of consideration for our camp's neighbors, we kindly request everyone to drive slowly and more cautiously through the neighborhood as you approach and leave camp. There are many kids that play in the neighborhood and we value their safety, too! Thank you so much for your cooperation
