Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I GET MY KIDS’ T-SHIRTS?

A T-shirt can be picked up the weekend of June 8 & 9 in room 101. Once you have the shirt, please label your camper’s shirt with the first name ONLY in a sharpie marker. Label Adult Leader and Youth Camper Leader worker’s shirts with Mr./Mrs./Miss and your name. All campers receive a t-shirt based on elective. You may purchase an additional Summer Quest t-shirt during registration.

HOW DOES LUNCH WORK?

Camper’s lunch will be delivered to campers 1st elective and will stay with their 1st elective during lunch. Campers bring their own lunch packed in a cooler lunch bag with their first and last name clearly marked. You may purchase a boxed lunch for $25/week. Box lunch includes Meat sandwich, chips, fruit, and a dessert. If your child needs to eat in an allergy-protected area, that information is noted at registration and check-in.

HOW DO YOU CARE FOR MY CHILD WITH ALLERGIES?

Please note your child’s allergies when registering. All students specific allergies are reviewed by our camp nurse. Every elective director for the elective your child is participating in is notified of your child’s allergies. We provide an allergy protected lunch area for your child as well. You must fill out a yellow card at check-in on Monday, and we keep your child’s lunch separated at a designated table.

CAN I PICK UP MY CHILD EARLY?

We do not recommend early release or pick up. Summer Quest is all day, except for MORNING ONLY pre-k campers (in the VOYAGE elective). Please schedule other camps, lessons, and doctors’ appointments for a different week. However, if essential for a camper to leave early, please report this to the check-out tables in the lobby before picking up your child. Since safety and security are top priorities, it is essential we check your child out accordingly. Thanks in advance for helping in the process.

DO YOU PRORATE THE COST FOR THE WEEK IF WE LEAVE EARLY?

We do not prorate the cost for the week for those who choose to leave Summer Quest early.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CONTACT STAFF DURING THE WEEK?

There will be a staffed administration counter in the Lobby, or you may call the church office at 720-398-9378 to reach us.

WHAT IF MY CHILD LOSES SOMETHING OR NEEDS TO CHANGE THEIR CLOTHES?

Losing something is a normal occurrence at Summer Quest. We have a lost-and-found table in the Lobby. However, we strongly suggest you send your child to Summer Quest with 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.

WHERE DO I PARK FOR CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT?

All parking is in designated parking areas. Parking attendants will be directing you accordingly. For 3:00pm check-out, you will pick up your child from either the Worship Center (pre-Kinder-5th) or Voyage (3/4’s) downstairs at BRAVE Kids. Please keep your ID wristband and show it to your child’s leader before taking your child. Adhering to this safety standard may take a couple of minutes after the conclusion of the last session each day, so please be patient.

WHEN IS FINAL PAYMENT DUE?

Final payment is due Tuesday, June 4th through an automatic charge to your original form of payment. If that is not possible, please contact BRAVE Kids (720-398-9378) by Monday, June 3rd to make other arrangements.

HOW DO I CHANGE OR CANCEL A REGISTRATION?

You may request a change to your child’s registration before May 20 at no charge. On or after May 20, there is a $30 charge plus any additional fees if the new elective is more expensive. You may cancel your registration before May 20 by emailing BRAVE Kids (summerquest@bravechurch.co with “Cancel Registration” in the subject line) for a full refund.  On or after May 20, we will refund your deposit less a $30 fee.

HOW DO I MAKE A REQUEST FOR MY CHILD TO PARTICIPATE WITH A SPECIFIC FRIEND?

You choose two electives for your child to participate in, one for the morning (am) and one for the afternoon (pm). If they have a friend request, you must register your child for the same elective at the same time (am or pm) as their friend.

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR?

Your child should wear their Summer Quest t-shirt, shorts, and comfortable shoes. 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).
