Tomorrow is the last day of school, and though it does not feel like summer is coming, it indeed is. I thought that I would take a couple of minutes and explain the summer activities that we have planned for Kids Live!
June 21-25 (8:30-4:00 each day): Take Flight Day Camp. I am particularly excited this year about day camp. Take Flight alludes to an aeronautical theme. Just as trust as we must put our trust into many people when we buy a plane ticket, board a plane, and set sail to the wild blue yonder, so we must put our trust into God in different areas of our lives as well. We’ll be talking in our chapel times about the different ways to put our trust in God, and see how that correlates with different people in the Bible.
Field trips include: Evergreen Aviation Museum (home to Howard Hughes’ Spruce Goose), Clackamas Aquatic Center, Roodbridge Park for some team competition, OMSI, and the Oregon Zoo. Cost is $125 per camper. This event is for kids going into 1st-5th grades. Space is limited and going fast, so if your kids want to go and their forms are not in yet, please get them in fast!
July 12-16 (9:00-12:00 each day) High Seas Expedition VBS, exploring the mighty love of God! We’ll be diving into God’s love, learning about how deep, wide and great his love really is (well, as much as we can understand it). While learning all these things, we’ll be having as much fun as kids going into 1st-5th grade (see how I slipped that in there) are allowed to have. This is a free event, we will gladly accept any donations to help offset the costs. If you could be so kind as to send me an email and let me know that you are planning on sending your kids, that would be great!
August 16-20: “Celebrate U” overnight camp. This is the district camp where we will join with kids from all over the western side of Oregon and have fun, worship God, and learn more about His awesomeness. This is a university themed camp, aimed at celebrating the unique qualities that each child has. We will be at Kellogg Springs campground in Sutherlin, Oregon. Cost is $190 per camper. Registration is due by July 22, after that the price increases to $215, and registration closes August 9th.
This year, we have been gifted with a generous scholarship fund, so please do not let money be a reason that your kids miss out on anything!
