Summer Fun at Camp Bayshore

Camp Bayshore is a fun, Christian-centered program for rising kindergartners through rising sixth graders that provides a fun and safe place for children from all around the Tampa Bay area. We started our program with just a handful of campers in the early 1980s. Now, 40 years later, we see over 300 campers on campus during a typical camp week!

Ready, Set, Fun!

Bayshore summer campers learn through hands-on experiences as our staff challenges them in fun and exciting ways. Campers enjoy structured and free play, off-campus field trips, shows, music, art, science projects, service projects, and many, many other activities.

Camp Hours of Operation

Camp Bayshore 2024 will be open May 29 - July 26. Camp is open every day, unless otherwise noted, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Camp Costs and Fees

Camp tuition includes all daily activities and field trips. We do not assess an additional cost for before or after care.

  • Crickets (Rising 1st and 2nd graders):  $325 per week
  • Bullfrogs (Rising 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders): $325 per week

We offer a $25 per week discount for additional children of the same immediate family that attend camp during the same week. In addition, we offer a $25 active duty military tuition discount per week.

Cancellations:  To not be charged the weekly tuition, you must notify the camp director of the cancellation two weeks prior to the week being cancelled.  Otherwise, the account will be charged for the tuition. The non-refundable registration fee will not be reimbursed. 

Camp Staff

We only select Camp Bayshore staff members who profess themselves as Christians and who have an obvious love and previous experience caring for children. We conduct a background check on all potential counselors with final approval of counselors granted by camp and school administration.

We assign an adult counselor who has at least three years prior experience to each age group at Camp Bayshore. All of our adult counselors have received CPR and first aid training. Counselors, at least 16 years old, provide back-up assistance. Camp Bayshore follows the same policy as Bayshore Christian School - Bayshore Christian School is an equal opportunity employer and educational provider committed to a policy of non-discrimination for any member of the school's community. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, nationality, or ethnic origin in hiring practices, policies, and administration. This policy applies to faculty, staff, students, visitors, applicants, and contractors in a manner consistent with applicable laws, regulations, ordinances, orders, school policies, procedures, and processes.

Child to counselor ratio:
10:1 for 3 - 5 year olds
12:1 for 1st - 6th graders

Camp Bayshore Director

Welcome Mrs. Joli Morejon, our new Camp Bayshore Director!  

While this position as Camp Director has just begun, she has a long history with Camp Bayshore and Bayshore Christian School.  From 2011 – 2019, Mrs. Morejon served as a Camp Bayshore Counselor and Head Counselor.  In addition, she has worked as an educator at BCS since 2019. Mrs. Morejon is Bayshore Christian School’s 5th grade teacher and Lower Division Coordinator. A graduate of Plant High School, she received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of South Florida in 2015. When away from work, she enjoys being with her kids and husband.  They love going to the beach and spending time outside. 

Her new role with Camp Bayshore has special meaning, as she has always recognized, understood, and valued the joy each summer brings a camper. “I am thrilled to be coming back to Camp Bayshore. Each year, I looked forward to the start of camp and everything that came with it-- from the off-campus trips to showing team spirit on field day!  I feel blessed to be able to continue the incredible work of each director before me. I know the Lord has big plans for us and that this will be an amazing summer!”
