Two Camps in One!
St. Andrew Kinder Camp is this week, which means that 23 three-, four- and five-year-olds are having a great time playing with playdough, telling stories, painting, doing crafts, playing on the playground and so much more!
What it also means, is that in addition to our wonderful adult volunteers, we have approximately 40 youth ages 10 and up helping make all of that happen! We couldn't do Kinder Camp without them.
We have also known that for Kinder [and Day Camps] we are running two parallel camps, but this year we are investing even more in our helpers by offering a leadership track in the middle of the day. It's just 40 minutes or so, but we are talking about the gifts and talents God gave them, learning how effective teams work and how good leaders lead! And we're having lots of fun along the way!
Thanks to Christy Londreville for putting together some lesson plans from her experience doing this with youth in private schools. And thanks to all of you who support summer camps in so many ways. We are not only sharing the story with little ones, we are also investing in youth who are already leaders!
