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


YOUTH AGE REGISTRATION (Rising 7th - 9th graders) HAS CLOSED. 

All other age groups are still available but limited.



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 for rising Kindergarten through Rising 6th graders.  Rising 7th through Rising 9th grade registration is full.   When you are registering FULL TIME children you may use coupon code 2021KID2 to save $25 on your second child's registration.  If you register a third Full Time  child use coupon code 2021KID3 to save $50 off that child's registration.


PART TIME registration is open.   This year's part time option is Monday/Wednesday/Friday only for the full summer with no other part time option available.  We will not be registering Juniors in the part time option. 


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.
