Weekly Themes

Week 1 – Farm to Fresh (June 3-7)

Bible Story Theme: The Parable of The Sower and The Seeds. (Luke 8: 5-15)

No better way to kick off summer than spending a week down on the farm.  From the depths of the earth, God’s love is sprouting for us, and we can see that all around us. Join us for a week of gardening, farming, tasting, and learning about farm animals.  Our campers will plant flowers, have hands on experiences learning about farming, taste farm fresh food, make butter, and learn how we can gently care for God’s animals!

Week 2 – Travel Back in Time (June 10 – 14)

Bible Story Theme: Praise God for all He does. (Psalm 147)

The young, the old, and the new, God’s got an amazing tale for you! It’s going to be a great week taking our campers on a journey through time, exploring a variety of Nursery Rhymes! Campers will hear traditional songs and rhymes and can use their imaginations to act out, sing, and create their own rhymes! Props and stages to be included! The loudest songs we sing and the greatest stories we tell come from the Lord!

Week 3 – It’s a Great World After All (June 17-21)

Bible Story Theme: Jesus loves all. (1 John 4:19)

Join us for a week of exploring our amazing world! Mark 16:15 says, “Go into the world and preach the Gospel to all nations.” The world is an incredible place with so many unique and special cultures. This week, we will take a trip around the world, learning about different cultures and how together we can further grow God’s Kingdom!

Week 4 – Summer Bucket List (June 24-28)

Bible Story Theme: God is the creator of everything, all seasons. (Psalms 74:17)

Calling all summer lovers! God gives us four seasons and each of them comes with the opportunity to create endless memories. We want to give our campers a week to have some of the best summer memories with their peers.  Our campers will enjoy water exploration, go on a camping adventure, make ice-cream, have red, white, and boom day, and eat popsicles!

Week 5 – STEM/STEAM Explorations (July 8-12)

Bible Story Theme: Each of our gifts comes from up above! (James 1:17)

Calling all of God’s inventors! God has gifted each of us with an imagination and special skills and abilities.  Campers will invent, create, use teamwork, and problem-solving as they explore science, technology, engineering, art, and math. God is in every detail and each camper will shine in who He has created them to be.

Week 6 – Summer Olympics/Sports (July 15-19)

Bible Story Theme: He is our strength and our power. (Isaiah 40:29-31)

Get ready to move and groove!  This week, we will finish summer strong.  God is our greatest source of strength, and He has created in us an ability to move our bodies.  This week we will use music, movement, sports, obstacle courses, and talk about foods that help us build strong muscles! We will use our individual talents and abilities to glorify His name!
