Cost $40 per child until June 15, with a maximum of $85 per family.
After June 15, cost is $45 per child with a maximum of $95 per family.
A little about this year’s program:
Imagine a world where curious kids become hands-on inventors who discover they’re lovingly crafted by God. Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and dig into yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible discoveries, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of Jesus’ love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with a Funshop Finale that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.
