Children

Hello Friends!

The Children’s Ministry is for children ages preschool through grade 6. We have an awesome group of parents and volunteers that are committed to the spiritual nourishment and growth of kids. We are active in our local community, participating in the Angel Tree at Christmas, and providing opportunities for children to learn about God’s love and to share God’s love expressed through his Son Jesus Christ! Seasonal Activities include: Fall Festival, Parent’s Night Out, Easter Outreach & Egg Hunt, “Thrilling Thursday’s” and VBS in the summer.

FOOD:  Lunch in a bag with the camper’s name on the bag.  Do not bring a lunch box — we store all lunches.  Drinks and snacks will be provided.

CLOTHES:  Everyone needs tennis shoes

GIRLS:  Wear a swimsuit under a shirt and shorts.  Since this is a church sponsored event, young ladies are asked wear an appropriate one piece suit, or a “swim T-shirt or tank top” which provides full coverage of the midriff while at the pool.

BOYS:  Wear a swimsuit and a shirt

There are no facilities to change clothes, so please wear your swim suits to camp as directed.
