You’re Invited! June 15–19

Kids entering grades K - 5 in Fall 2020

High Five is an all day, camp adventure of worshipping Jesus! It’s a week of finding your true identity in Christ, discovering how special God made you, and telling others about Jesus and why He deserves a High-Five!

This summer, you have the chance to spend five days filled with fun and excitement, sharing Jesus with your friends and neighbors!

With hearts and hands lifted high, give Jesus your very best, your Five Highest days of worship, by making BRAVE Disciples! At BRAVE, we want to stop everything to tell Jesus Christ, “I celebrate You!” And tell others, “I celebrate and appreciate the way God made you, special and unique with purpose!”

High Five is Denver’s premier day camp for everyone!

How do you care for my child with allergies?

Note your child’s allergies when registering as all allergies are reviewed by our Camp Nurse Team. We request that you help us keep High Five free of peanuts when packing your child’s lunch.

PICK UP / DROP OFF

Can I pick up my child early?

We apologize, but we do not allow early release or pick up. High Five is all day. Please schedule other camps lessons and doctor’s appointments for a different week.

How do I check-in?

Bring your BRAVE Kids swipe card to check-in each day. Your child will receive three name tags every day – one for the AM elective, one for the PM elective and one for their lunch selection. After they are checking in Campers go to the Worship Center.

How do I check-out?

Campers are to be picked up from the Worship Center. Children will only be released to an adult showing an ID and their name listed on our approved pick-up list.

CLOTHING

What should my child wear?

Your child should wear their High Five t-shirt every day, shorts, and comfortable shoes (consider having them wear gym shoes if they have chosen an active elective). Swimsuits should be worn under their clothes. Everything gets dirty, stained and worn-out this week. Please do not send your child in anything you love. This is a camp, and they play hard. Some electives will require a swim suit. If that is the case, we ask for girls to be in one-piece suits or a tankini and boys in swim trucks (no speedos).

How do I get my kids’ t-shirts?

T-shirt’s can be picked up the weekend of June 13 & 14 in room 101. Please label the camper’s shirt with the first name ONLY in a sharpie marker. All campers receive a t-shirt. Label volunteer shirts with Mr./Mrs./Miss and your name. Additional High Five t-shirts will be available for purchase ($10).

I missed t-shirt pick up weekend.

No problem. Your t-shirt will be available for pick up on Monday morning of High Five at check-in.

What if my child loses something or needs to change their clothes?

Losing something is a normal occurrence at High Five. We have a lost-and-found table in the Lobby. However, we strongly suggest you send your child wearing and carrying nothing of value. They get dirty, and their clothes and shoes will never be the same. Many children need to change. We have custom-built outdoor changing tents that protect privacy, yet allow a child to change their dirty, wet clothes. We recommend that ALL items be labeled.

MISCELLANEOUS

What if I need to contact staff during the week?

There will be a staffed High Five Headquarters counter in the lobby, or send an email to us at info@bravechurch.co,or you may call the church office at 720-398-9378. Sending a message through High Five Headquarters is the best way.
