Are you wanting to do something different with your church this summer to reach your community? Vacation Bible school may be your immediate thought, but with that you may be wanting to try something your church has never done and the community has never seen. That something can be MEGA Sports Camp!
There is something special to be said about going on a trip with the kids in your ministry to a place designed just for them where they can encounter God with no distractions. Summer camp is a valuable tool for leaders and should be utilized as much as possible in guiding kids to a Christ-centered life. Here are three reasons why.
Every year in the run-up to camp, I get so frustratingly busy that I end up thinking of all the reasons in the world why our church shouldn’t go next year. It’s expensive, it’s messy to organize, not every child can attend, and it’s annoying to chase down parents. Yet each year, as I pull into the crowded parking lot of the campground, I begin to realize that all the hard work is worth it.
Creating outreaches that kids will love has never been the problem. But finding volunteers to pull it off is another story. So what kinds of summer activities make recruiting the right workers easier? Not every activity needs to require a lot of manpower to plan or pull off. Tours and road trips are my favorite style of low-prep activities that both kids and adults love.
“Bees’ll buzz, kids’ll blow dandelion fuzz.” I promise I won’t finish singing the entire song “Summer” from the movie Frozen, but summer is one of my most favorite seasons! Growing up I remember days spent on the lake, times with my family, barbeques, swimming in the pool, and going for walks. Summer is a BLAST and such a key time for families to get outside and spend some quality time together!
