Base Camp, Summit’s Children’s Ministry, is for our 3-month-olds to 5th grade kids. Each Sunday, your child will learn about the Bible and how it relates to them in an age-appropriate way. The lessons are fun and approachable and taught by committed volunteers and staff members who serve Jesus by serving you and your kids. Ultimately, the goal of Base Camp is to get kids excited about Jesus and to encourage and equip families to talk about him together throughout the week!



Stepping Stones

In Stepping Stones, we want your child to walk away knowing three things: God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever! It is our hope that your child would love church, and everything we do is designed intentionally with them in mind.

Stepping Stones is for 3-month-olds to 5-year-olds and is available during all services at our Herndon, Lake Mary, and Waterford Campuses.

In Foothills, our elementary students hear how to make the wise choice, to treat others the way they want to be treated, and to know that they can trust God no matter what. On Sunday, you can expect Foothills to be teeming with volunteers who love kids, are playful and fun, and who want to show your children what a growing and meaningful relationship with Jesus can look like!

Foothills is for K-5th graders and is available during all services at our Herndon, Lake Mary, and Waterford Campuses.

Base Camp Live!

BCL is Summit’s 25-minute family production that kids get to take their parents to after Sunday morning worship services. It involves a lot of high-energy music and a cast of lively and relatable characters who walk through life learning how God’s truth can transform us.

Weekly at the Herndon Campus; select Sundays at the Lake Mary and Waterford Campuses during the months of August through May.


Special-Needs Buddies

At Summit we are equipped to provide buddies for kids in our inclusive classroom environments to make sure Base Camp can be enjoyed by children of all abilities. A sensory-friendly classroom is also available at the Herndon Campus. We would love to work with you to make sure Summit is a place that is safe and enjoyable for your kids. Please contact the Children's Ministry staff member for your campus to discuss how we can best welcome and support you and your family.
