Summer Day Camp

Summer Day Camp begins each year in the last week of June and runs through mid-August.  A thematic idea is introduced to reinforce core spiritual concepts.  Each theme uses imagery that is familiar to children teaching them about Gods love and direction for their lives. 

Daily activities include upbeat chapel services, scripture memory, tutoring sessions, written reflection, drama, dance, recreation and crafts.  Once a week the campers gain experiential learning through field trips.  The week concludes with a trip to the pool and shopping at the camp store, resulting from bonus bucks that are earned throughout the week. 

Program Needs

Volunteers to conduct chapel services, chaperone fiels trips, lead elective classes i.e. drama, dance, and crafts.

Financial support for supplies, food, and transportation.

Prayer team to designate consistent prayer for the families we serve, the facility we use, churches, and organizations we parter with, and our staff.


AFTER SCHOOL LEARNING CLUB (ASLC)

After School Learning Club is a place where children receive help completing homework.  We encourage good study habits and provide assistance with difficult courses. 

Each student is asked to complete an assessment and release of information that enables ASLC to collaborate with school representatives in an effort to enhance learning. 

Positive behavior and strong work ethics are modeled before each student.  Affirming relationships are built, while children learn the importance of respect and good decision making.  ASLC staff and volunteers work with parents and school representatives to create opportunities that best serve each student.

ASLC begins in October and runs through June from 3:00 to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday.  Services are not offered during school breaks and holidays.  

Daily activities include homework assistance, specialized support in challenging areas, sport/recreational activities, arts, crafts, healthy snacks and lessons on health and nutrition.  Other activities may be offered including:

· Family Growth Night

· Holiday Assistance

· Junior Leadership

· Life Skills Training
