Summer Camps

MRCA SUMMER CAMPS

After reviewing CDC Guidelines for camps, and after much thought and prayer on the matter, MRCA has decided to cancel several summer camps and reschedule others. Please be assured that MRCA is continually assessing the situation and if the social distancing and other guidelines were to be lifted, MRCA will consider hosting the sports camps (Sports, Soccer, and Volleyball camps) later this summer. This is an unprecedented situation and we are making the best decision we can with the guidelines and resources available. We appreciate your patience as we balance and weigh the various outlooks, views, and safety expectations of operating camps at MRCA.

The camps available to register for at MRCA for the summer of 2020 are listed below. (Please know these are subject to change as we continue to monitor the situation in South Carolina.) We welcome current MRCA students as well as children outside our community! To register, fill out an MRCA Summer Camp Registration Form for each child coming to camp. This year, we are accepting payments through FACTS (for MRCA families) or with a check. Please pay by June 15.

If you have any problems or questions, e-mail Shannon Jillson at sjillson@mitchellroadchristian.org.
