Kids Ministry at Rock Creek Church

At Rock Creek Church our kids (infant through 7th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way. Our kids have their own programs, but are an integral part of the Rock Creek Church community. 


At the moment, in-person Basecamp Kids Programs are offered for kids 3rd through 7th grade. We are preparing to expand this age range as soon as we are able to do so safely, given the difficulties with managing younger children and following COVID guidelines. We make your children’s safety one of our top priorities! All of our volunteers working with minors have passed Colorado State background checks. We also have a detailed check-in process for our Basecamp program the first time that you visit, so you’ll want to leave yourself an extra 10 minutes to get your family checked-in for the Basecamp experience.


We would love to see you and your family visit Basecamp Kids.

Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting with kids for the first time:


First, let one of our greeters know it's your first time. They will guide your family to the check in area where you can meet our Basecamp Team, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.


Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):


  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
