Epic Adventure is an affordable day camp based at The Master's School campus in Simsbury, Connecticut. Operated by high energy leaders and overseen by Valley Simsbury Church, the camp consists of two programs — one for students currently in Grades 1-4, and the other for middle-school students in Grades 5-8. The Master’s School property is beautiful, spanning 75 acres and complete with a gymnasium, dining hall, athletic fields, hiking trails, and adventurous terrain. The camps will also take special day trips to adventure parks and various locations that are age appropriate. Students will learn about the "Epic Journey" God has for our lives as they debrief activities and engage in Team Time discussions throughout the week. 

Registration is closed for both 2023 camps.
Hope to see you next summer!

Frequently Asked Questions

How are teams arranged and can my child be with a friend?

Campers will be assigned to a team with counselors and supervised at all times. Requests will be made in the final prep packet (due in May) to be paired with friends. We will do our best to accommodate friend requests and ensure kids enjoy camp together.

How does the registration, releases, prep packet, and payments work?

Registration will close when the camps reach 60 students for each, so we encourage interested families to register early. The early-bird pricing will end on January 31. A non-refundable deposit of $75 reserves your camper's place. The remaining balance must be received by May 19, 2023. If the remaining balance is not received by May 19, 2023, your space may be forfeited. A "Final Prep Packet" including final payment, camp schedule, a packing list, emergency contacts, camp safety and release forms, etc., will be sent to you at the beginning of May. 

What is the leadership and staff structure?

Our Camp Director is Holden Worth. Holden is a state licensed and employed elementary school teacher and will be licensed by the CT Office of Early Childhood education to direct the camp. In addition, a licensed director of First Aid, alongside adult interns, high school counselors (16+), and an executive staff director will make up the camp leadership team. A counselor-to-student ratio of 1-to-6 will be followed. All personnel will undergo a background check, reference check, interview, and be trained to supervise kids in various camp scenarios. Adventure activities (for Grades 5-8) related to rock climbing, zip lining, cliff jumping, high ropes, etc., will occur under the supervision of companies and officials who are licensed for such elements. (ie. The Adventure Park at Storrs; Brownstone Park.) A full description of activities and waver for camper participation will be submitted as part of the final prep packet.  

What are the drop-off and pick-up plans?

Camps run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Kids are dropped off between 8:45-9 a.m. and picked up between 4-4:15 p.m. Drop-off and pick-up policies and procedures will be explained in the final prep packet.

Campers are responsible to bring a...

  • morning snack
  • lunch
  • water bottle. (a water refill station will be available at all times)

High energy snacks will be provided each day (ie. snow cones) to boost energy for the afternoon and the "Big Theme Day" activity. Allergies will be reported on health forms and alternate snacks will be provided. 

Does my child need to be "adventurous" to attend?

Activities will range from fun games, water activities, cool crafts, hiking, swimming, relaxing -- and while the camps will offer various thrill-seeking activities for the brave-at-heart (age appropriate), we're confident there are activities that will appeal to all children. 

What's the transportation and off-site supervision plan?

Kids will be transported in buses. At locations, kids will navigate the parks or locations in groups and be supervised by counselors, staff. and approved leaders. The comprehensive safety and supervision plan will be explained in the Final Prep Packet. 

Is there financial assistance for those experiencing a hardship?
