summertime at first cumberland

First Cumberland's campus comes alive with all the sounds of summer once the weather warms up.  The Cumberland Youth Foundation was founded in 1958 here at First Cumberland to serve the area's children.  Current ministries under the CYF include The Dayplayers Summer Camp, The Cumberland Currents Swim Team and management of our Olympic sized swimming pool.... all located on the campus of First Cumberland Presbyterian just steps from the church itself.  We invite you to come find your spot in the sun at First Cumberland this summer...  we'll save a seat for you!

Dayplayers Summer Camp

Registration 2021 is open!


Out of an abundance of caution for the health of our campers and staff, Dayplayers will operate at approximately 50% capacity for summer 2021.  This will allow us to give ample space to the different age groups, especially when we have to come inside due to weather.   


Registration is now open for FULL TIME CAMPERS ONLY.   When you are registering a second child you can use coupon code 2021KID2 to save $25 on that child's registration.  If you register a third child use coupon code 2021KID3 to save $50 off that child's registration.


We hope to open up PART TIME CAMPER spots after assessing the number of spots left on March 15th. We are excited to welcome back our returning Dayplayer campers as well as new Dayplayer families joining us for summer 2021!  We have not issued official COVID policies at this time, however, once we receive guidance from either the CDC or the Hamilton County Health Department (or both) we will pass along our summer COVID policies.  Please be aware that we will be strictly adhering to all mandated guidelines.  


Some of you may be interested in swim lessons and we are currently working through the logistics of offering them this summer.  We will keep you posted on whether this will become available.  The option to add a pool membership at a discounted price for Dayplayer families is not available at this time but if that changes, we will notify you asap.


We have also suspended the Refer A Friend program for this summer.  We anticipate bringing it back for summer 2022.  


Despite the all the changes we have had to make for this year, we look forward to a fun and healthy summer as we return to Dayplayers.  We ask for your understanding as we move forward with plans for the summer with the goal of your child's safety in mind.   


If you have any questions, please feel free to call the church office.
