God and Country Camp

 

All young people in first through sixth grades are invited to join together for God and Country Camp at St. Anne’s Episcopal Church from July 17th to July 21st from 6 – 8 pm each evening.  Registration is necessary by July 10th, as each child will have a workbook and receive a patch at the completion of camp. Youth do not have to be in scouts to participate. Youth in grades 1-3 will be in God and Me while youth in grades 4-6 will participate in the God and Family program.   

The God and Me program is designed to help children become best friends with Jesus as they tell their story of God and Me together. Children will make a GAMEBOX (God And Me Exploring BOX) to help them explore God’s love with their families.   

God and Family is for youth in grades 4-6 and is designed to help youth understand the importance of family and God’s role in a healthy family. Children will read about different families in the Bible, which can teach them about God’s plan for strengthening families. To remember these lessons, children will compare families and “pizza.” The six steps for making pizza will give students a concrete, “hands-on” model on which to build their understanding of God’s love for their families. They will make a pizza as they study how families can grow together in God’s love, and they will choose “family projects” to be done with their family at home.

Celebration of the completion of these programs will be held with a pizza party and recognition ceremony on July 21st. The cost of camp is $10.00 (some scholarships are available; please do not let cost keep you away).

God and Country programs are officially recognized by Boy Scouts of America as the religious awards program for youth in Protestant and Independent churches. Call Sherry Sivret at 454-8016 for more information or to register for the program.
