Big Picture does Camp Kids Place work?

Camp Kids Place Policies

This website represents the official policies of the camp. Particularly as camp time approaches, please read each page of this website as it contains important and specific information regarding how we do camp and should include most everything you’ll need to know. As a religiously operated day camp, Camp Kids Place is not licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia, but is registered with the state and meets or exceeds all requirements and standards. In other words, we do camp right! Have more questions? Just reach out to Luke Polito, Camp Director, at

When & Where?

       Camp runs for 8 weeks from June 24 - August 16. A basic day at camp is from 9AM until 4PM. You can arrive 15 minutes earlier or stay 15 minutes later at no additional cost. We suggest you check-in by 8:50am to get your camper to their Team Meeting on time!

       Camp Kids Place is a ministry of Cherrydale Baptist Church in Arlington, Va., at the corner of Lorcom Lane and Military Road. We’re just a few minutes from Georgetown, Ballston, the Pentagon, and the National Mall. We occasionally travel to nearby swimming facilities, parks, and other places where campers are well-supervised as they participate in great activities. If campers are off-campus with us you will be notified in advance and can be assured they are as safe and well-protected as if they were at the camp facility.

       Attendance at Camp Kids Place is open to all kids from all backgrounds. Please remember that Camp Kids Place is a Christian camp that teaches biblical principles to our campers. Participation in the camp is a privilege, not a right. In order to participate in camp, children must be able to successfully function in a large-group community setting. While all children make mistakes while growing up, for the safety of our campers we cannot accommodate children who cannot or will not properly relate to authority, who fail to show respect for equipment, the facility, and for other campers, or will not submit themselves to camp rules and policies.


       Campers are divided into six teams by gender and grade-level this coming fall, although many activities are camp-wide where everyone participates as a group with their counselors. Each team is identified by a different color.
