All the fun of summertime squeezed into one week!
Feeling the pressure to plan the perfect spring break? We’ve done that work for you! Day-campers take part in traditional Warren Willis Camp activities like swimming, archery, group challenge course, field games and more. Each day is centered in a Christian atmosphere with an opportunity for daily small group Bible studies. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday we will travel offsite to enjoy a unique local location.
The cost of day camp is $140 per camper. Registration for individual days is available and costs $30 per day per camper. This includes camper care from 7:30 AM – 6:00 PM Monday – Friday. We provide breakfast, lunch, snacks, and a full day of fun!
We maintain a 1:5 staff to student ratio and our camps are accredited by the American Camp Association because of our dedication to safety and the quality of our programs.
Spring Break F.A.Q.
What should I send to camp with my child?
**Be sure to label everything with your campers first and last name.**
Water Bottle-Campers will be outside all day, so a water bottle is a must! The camp has many water fountains so that campers can refill their water bottles.
Clothing-Please wear a swimsuit and bring a fresh towel for each day swimming is scheduled. Please also send a change of clothes with your child for after the pool. When picking clothes to send with your camper, take into consideration the weather forecast and the camp activities. Camp activities continue rain or shine, so on rainy days campers may need a poncho or raincoat with a hat. We encourage you to have your campers wear old clothing to camp since they will be swimming, participating in outdoor games, and hiking through the woods.
Shoes-Campers should wear either old athletic shoes or sandals with a tight back strap. Due to the running activities athletic shoes are better for the campers. Flip Flops are not a good idea for footwear at camp except for using at the pool.
Sunscreen and Bug Repellant– Lotion, pump-action, or wipe only. Please no aerosol sprays.
Putting it all together-A backpack is a great way to bring items to camp, and bring everything home. Please mark child’s name on backpack.
What are the pick-up and drop-off times at camp?
Drop-off at camp is between 7:30 am-8:15 am. Pick-up is between 5:00-6:00 pm. Late fees may be incurred if your child isn’t picked up by 6:00 pm. IF you need to drop-off later or pick-up earlier, please come to the front office, in the main lodge. Day Campers could be participating in activities all around the camp, so please allow yourself extra time for drop-off and pick-up if you are coming at a non-traditional time.
Where is the Warren Willis United Methodist Camp and Conference Center?
Warren Willis Camp is located on 150 acres on the shores of Lake Griffin with a physical address of 4990 Picciola Rd. in Fruitland Park, FL. Please look for signs to direct you to drop off and pick up locations.
What precautions are taken when campers are swimming in the pool?
All campers must take a swimming test during the first full day of camp to demonstrate their swimming ability. We have a shallow area in our pool which allows for all non-swimmers to be in the pool, but campers who are not able to pass the swimming test will not be allowed onto our slides or deeper areas of the pool. Campers will be outfitted with a colored band to let lifeguards know their swimming ability.
What water activities will my child participate in while at camp?
The campers travel to the water activities as a group. The campers will swim in the pool for one hour each day, weather permitting. On Thursday, they also have the opportunity to participate in water games.
What happens if it rains?
Warren Willis Camp is blessed to have such a magnificent natural setting to implement our programs. When it rains our camp day proceeds as usual. Campers may come home wet or muddy on rainy days. When rain is accompanied by thunder and lightning, all campers are moved to covered areas. Indoor activities may include, arts & crafts, movies, games, etc.
