Cougar Camp is open to boys and girls from ages 5 to 12 years old (entering first grade through completion of 6th grade). Campers enjoy 9 weeks of organized activities that combine faith, fun, fellowship, exercise, and education. Campers can daily, one week, or multiple weeks. Themes vary each week, such as Mad Scientist Week, Circus Week, Mock Olympics Week, and Red, White, and Blue Patriotic Week. Favorite Cougar Camp activities include STEM activities, weekly field trips, swimming in the lake at nearby Sleepy Hollow Campground, playing ga-ga ball in the air-conditioned gymnasium, drawing and painting, and cooking healthy snacks made from fresh produce picked from the school garden. Worshiping God through music and Bible story time are also part of the daily program.

Early Ed/Preschool Summer Program 2017

The ACS Early Education and preschool summer program is open to children from ages 6 months-5 years (including those entering kindergarten). Qualified and trained staff provide a warm, loving environment with fun and educational activities. Preschoolers look forward to the weekly “Water Day” where they enjoy playing in inflatable water slides and pools.

All summer program participants bring their own lunch, but every Friday is pizza day as an option for a small fee. Snacks are provided daily.

Cougar Camp 2017 and the Early Education summer program will begin Monday, June 26, 2017.  For more information, contact Heidi Sray at 609-653-1199 ext. 307 or at

ACS Band Camp

Band Camp gives students enrolled in ACS from the 4th to the 12th grades a head start on preparing to play in band during the school year. Campers spend one week in August learning to play an instrument or improving their skills.  Campers can bring their own instrument or ACS will provide campers with an instrument. No need to purchase or rent your own to participate.

The fee-based program offers two tracks: beginning and progressing. There is one-on-one instruction and small group rehearsals, culminating in a performance on the final day open to family and friends. In addition to the instruction and rehearsals, campers participate in a variety of fun and challenging group games and team-building activities. Snacks are provided.
