Bellingham, WA COVID Response Details

During these uncertain times, our children need us more than ever. Our staff at Fircreek is ready to provide safe and healthy opportunities for children to play in the great outdoors of Lake Whatcom.

Utilizing guidance from the WA DOH and the CDC we’ve modified our programs to keep kids safe while they have fun this summer. From social distancing to additional cleaning procedures & health screening at check-in, we're open & ready for another safe, fun & incredible summer at The Creek!

<10 kids

Taking the childcare guidance from the CDC we’re keeping groups at a maximum of 10 people including a staff member. As a result groups will be assigned to new activities each day to participate in as a small group so that each child gets to experience all that Fircreek has to offer.

Health Screening

Following the guidance of the WA DOH and the Bellingham School District we are daily screening all staff, children and parents who step foot on the Fircreek grounds. Checking for fever, cough or shortness of breath. Also, we are asking all parents to keep their kids home if they aren’t feeling well.

Additional Cleaning & Hand Washing

We have added additional cleaning procedures to the management of our facilities using recommended practices from the CDC and WA DOH. We also champion hand washing at Fircreek including scheduled hand washing times twice daily.

We believe that each child is important to God.

Although we do not focus on denominational or religious distinctions, we are consistent with our mission by presenting the Biblical message of Jesus. We have a blast and we let kids know that God is a part of it.

Fircreek is a place where healthy, positive love flows and we give God credit for it while respecting your child’s beliefs and freedoms.

At Fircreek Day Camp, there are more activities than there are hours in a day! From tree houses, zip lines, archery, various sporting activities, fabulous arts and crafts, to endless adventure on Fircreek’s own private waterfront, campers will never run out of things to do. Each week we explore the many “Adventure Zones” of Fircreek along with wild and zany all-camp games and team competitions every day!
