About Us

Our Vision

Our vision is to see children and youth reach their highest potential in everything they set out to do. Our goal is to serve the local community by providing an affordable summer day camp program for families in the area that would give children a safe place to have a great time, grow in their skills and talents, and learn more about God so that they can be a positive influence on the world around them.

SKY Summer Camp was opened in 2013 by Pastor Teresa Conlon, the President of Summit International School of Ministry, and it is run by staff and students of the school on our 100 acre premises. We started small, with just 15 campers when we opened, but now we serve over 80 children per week coming from about 200 families per summer. We are so thrilled that our service is appreciated, and returning campers always bring more friends with them the next year.

Summit International School of Ministry is also home to Summit Community Church (our inter-denominational church open year round) and Twelv2Athelete (a sports program featuring year round training as well as Summer Sports Camps).

You are more than welcome to come and visit us anytime that is convenient for you. Just give us a call or email us and we will be happy to schedule a tour for you. Feel free to read our Statement of Faith.

Our Staff

SKY campers are surrounded by a leadership that maintain a Biblical worldview. We have developed a program that nurtures and encourages campers’ growth through a variety of sports and creative arts in a safe Christian environment. We delight in diversity, culture, community and friendship. We encourage self-development by teaching life skills through hands-on activities and by life examples of the camp staff. We hope to cultivate a positive change in children’s lives that will last a lifetime.

Our energetic and dedicated staff include a registered nurse, certified lifeguards, and trained camp counselors who are committed to providing a fun and safe summer for your children. To help ensure personal safety and individualized attention, our counselor/camper ratio is about 1 to 6. Our staff members undergo an extensive background check before joining our team. At SKY Summer Camp, we believe excellence is taught through example, therefore we are intentional about hiring counselors who share our values and desire to see kids succeed.

Flora Iton, Director

Aloha everyone! I don't know if anyone is as excited about SKY CAMP as I am! Blessed to have been here since day 1, when we first opened in 2013. What a joy to see campers return every year taller, smarter, and even more excited about our summer adventures. I love kids, and I have over 20 years of experience working with children and youth in schools and churches around the world. My favorite things are the pool, games, morning assemblies, field trips ... um ... basically everything! I love to sing, dance, rap, travel, and eat! I believe the best things in life are FREE like JESUS! One of my main goals in life is to have as much fun as possible without dying ... or sinning. You'll hear me laugh real loud at camp and sometimes I get my mords wuddled. Anywayz - this summer is gonna be awesome - because it's always awesome at SKY CAAAAMP!

Bethany

Dearest SKY Camp Campers, I am so glad to be at Sky Camp once again as Drama Director! My favorite thing about SKY Camp has been seeing all the campers learn as we have fun with costumes and plays together. Going down the “Sky Fall,” our 200 ft slip n’ slide, is pretty awesome too! Throughout out the rest of the year you may find me teaching theater to college students in Summit International School of Ministry, and managing their Front Office. In my free time, I love hiking and writing songs, and I love strawberry milkshakes! I await the summer with expectation and hope to see you all there as we learn about God’s love and have fun together.

Hannah

Hi everyone! They call me Hannah-O! I’m an alumni and intern of Summit International School of Ministry. Last year was one of the best summers of my life. I got to spend every day playing outside, swimming, going on field trips, and having fun with all the AMAZING kids! And I can’t wait to do it all again this summer! I love hanging out with friends, going on adventures, and playing music – which are all things that you can do at Sky Summer Camp!

Boris

Hey everyone! I am a student here at Summit International School of Ministry, and it's been really amazing learning more about God. Some of my favorite things to do include playing the piano (I don't play much, but it's still fun! ), playing video games, a little basketball, and a little volleyball. I really became dedicated to following Jesus when I saw how important He is in my life. That was about 4 years ago. I'm really excited for Sky Camp because of all the new friends I'm going to make and all the fun stuff we're gonna be doing. Really looking forward to it!

Manny

... but you can call me BatMann. I love being crazy, having fun, hearing people laugh, and laughing with them (guess that makes me a Joker). I am a student of Summit International School of Ministry, and I'm really excited to laugh, grow and learn with you. I love to weave imagination, bang drums, swim, eat, sleep, and play volleyball...but I'm not partial. I also enjoy reading, chilling and-- most of all-- praising God. If I'm not working laughter, I am spending time with God through prayer and reading my Bible. I've taught Sundays school grades 1-8, Vacation Bible Schools of varying age groups and a preteen youth group. That said, if you ever need someone to talk to, I'm always willing to listen.

JP

I'm a student at Summit International School of Ministry. I'm looking forward to meeting you all, and I know this summer is going to be awesome! I love music and playing guitar. I also love hiking, camping and just being outdoors in general. I've been saved since I was about 16. I like chilling out and having a good time with kids. I was an only child. If I seem quiet or something don't worry I don't always say a lot, but if anyone needs something or just a person to talk to feel free to ask me anything. Oh yeah! by the way I have a cool scar next to my right eye, from where I survived a car accident when I was younger.

More camp staff profiles coming up shortly!
