SUMMER CAMP FAQ
How much does it cost to attend camp?
It costs $175 per week to attend Thrive Summer Camp. There is also a one-time registration fee that covers your child’s camp t-shirt and Myrtle Waves Season Pass.
What ages attend camp?
Thrive Summer Camp is open to all rising 1st-6th graders. If a student attends Southeastern Christian Academy, the ages are extended to rising 1st-8th graders.
What will my child be doing?
Summer Camp is a week packed full of games, crafts, field trips, snacks and fun. On top of all of the fun, we will be having both large and small group sessions where we teach them about God concerning a specific topic based on our weeks theme. Also, we do at least one very fun STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Math) activity designed to make them think, and work together as a group.
How does the season pass work?
Every camper who has paid their one time registration fee has a season pass reserved for them. The pass will remain inactive and under the supervision of Thrive Summer Camp until the child attends Myrtle Waves with the camp. When the child arrives at the water park with Summer Camp staff, Myrtle waves will activate the pass by taking the child’s picture. At the end of that trip, Summer Camp will keep the child’s card so that they can get in to the park on those field trip days.
Do I have to buy an extra copy of the season pass?
No. Myrtle Waves does not mandate that park attenders present their cards. If you do not have a card, you simply have to go into the customer service building, tell the attendant your child’s name, and they will be admitted into the park. The extra copy of the card is only there for convenience to keep you from having to go inside. Thrive Summer Camp will keep all of the campers cards together and they will be distributed following the last week of camp. If you know it is your child’s last week of attendance, let a summer camp staff member know and you can then take your season pass card.
Do I have to pay registration fee if I already have a season pass?
Yes. While your child may already have a pass in their name, as part of the deal we have made with Myrtle Waves, all students must have a pass made with Summer Camp present.
When do I need to have my child wear their camp t-shirt?
Students wear their camp t-shirt on field trip days. We do this to help us maintain safety when we are off campus. To ensure that all students are dressed appropriately, Thrive Summer Camp will keep all camp shirts and wash them. On your child’s last week of camp, let the summer camp staff know and you can take the t-shirt home with you.
Do I have to attend all 10 weeks?
No. Summer Camp is on a week-to-week basis.
Is there a multiple child discount?
There is not a multiple child discount at this time.
Is there a discount for registering for multiple weeks?
There is not a multiple week discount at this time.
When is too late to register for a week of summer camp?
You may register for a week of summer camp all the way through the Monday beginning camp. However, any registration taking place after the close of camp on the Friday before, will incur a $10.00 late registration fee.
What will my child be eating?
On days that we remain on campus lunch will be provided. There will always be a menu provided beforehand, so that if the meals prepared are unwanted, students can bring lunch. Usually, one of the days is a standard sandwich, chip, fruit, cookie, while the other meal is a hot prepared meal such as, but not limited to: spaghetti, tacos, hot dogs, etc. Fridays we order pizza!

Can I pick up my child early?
Yes. A detailed schedule will be given out and any pick up is allowed anytime that we are at camp, providing that the person picking up is on the authorized pick-up list. If you need to pick up a child while we are off-campus, the legal guardian must be present or have already provided info on the pick-up.
