Camp Bayshore is a fun, Christian-centered, and child focused program that provides a fun and safe place for families and children from all around the Tampa Bay area. We started our program with just a handful of campers in the early 1980's. Now, over 30 years later, we see over 100 campers on campus during a typical camp week!
Bayshore summer campers learn through hands-on experiences as our staff challenges them in fun and exciting ways. Campers enjoy structured and free play, off-campus field trips, shows, music, art, science projects, service projects, and many, many other activities.
Camp Bayshore 2015 will be in session June 1, 2015, through August 7, 2015. The camp is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Camp tuition includes all daily activities and field trips. We do not assess an additional cost for before or after care.
We require a non-refundable registration fee of $35 per camper at the time of registration. The registration fee increases to $50 after May 25, 2015.
We offer a $25 per week discount for additional children of the same immediate family that attend camp during the same week.
We only select Camp Bayshore staff members who profess themselves as Christians and who have an obvious love and previous experience caring for children. We conduct a background check on all potential counselors with final approval of counselors granted by camp and school administration.
We assign an adult counselor who has at least three years prior experience to each age group at Camp Bayshore. All of our adult counselors have received CPR and first aid training. Counselors, at least 16 years old, provide back-up assistance. Male counselors work only with children in 1st grade and up.
