DayCamp 2017

What is DayCamp?

Maker Fun Factory is where kids will learn they were created by God and built for a purpose! We will help kids begin or deepen their faith by discovering our amazing God made each of us unique and perfect just the way we are. The week is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmo, team-building games, catchy songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the activities that will help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings.
