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

May 7, 2020

Dayplayer Campers & Families:

We have received official word from the Hamilton County Health Department that day camps will not be able to open for summer 2020 until further notice. All information is included in a press release dated May 6, 2020. We are sad to say that we have made the decision that Dayplayers will be cancelled for the summer regardless of any changes made by the Health Department because we understand you need to prepare a concrete childcare plan for your family as soon as possible.  We hope to resume Dayplayers with the summer 2021 season.


We know this news is not what you want to hear- and this is not what we were hoping to be able to share.  Pray for the city of Chattanooga, for our country and for the world.  We sincerely hope that Dayplayers will be able to open for summer 2021 and that we will be able to provide “Summer the way it should be!” next year!  


If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at


Take care and stay safe- we will miss you!

Dayplayers Summer Camp Director
