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.

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 and Volunteers

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.

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!
