Your child will be busy and active all day long! Comfortable, modest school clothes that can get messy are perfect. Closed-toe shoes are required.
What if my child has food allergies?
We want to be sensitive to all allergies. A sack lunch will be provided each day. If your child has severe food allergies we recommend he/she bring their own lunch. Please indicate all allergies on the registration form so we can be aware and properly care for your child while he/she is with us.
Will my child be with his/her friends?
Your child will have opportunity to connect with friends during the day, and will also have the chance to branch out and meet new people. Children will be divided up into Bible Study groups and track times. CentriKid staff is very aware of friend dynamics and concentrate on the best situation for your child's day.

What in the world is OMC??
CentriKid is known as the home of OMC! It is our large-group recreation game that takes place on the last full day of camp. If you have never experienced OMC before, here are the basics:
OMC stands for Organized Mass Chaos, and that pretty much sums it up!
The game lasts anywhere from 10-20 minutes based on supplies and location and the weather. The kids are split into 4 different groups and the goal is for your team to collectively complete the most task cards.
All the kids play at the same time, picking task cards and completing them as quickly as possible.
Even in the middle of all the fun, CentriKid staff will be very intentional about sharing the gospel. When the game is complete, staffers will make real-life Biblical application in a way that makes sense to kids.
An important note for parents: OMC is messy! Be sure your child wears clothes that can get messy on OMC day.
