In God’s Backyard Preschool and Summer Camps 2018

Welcome to In God’s Backyard!  We’re so glad you’re interested in Summer Camp at Sterling United Methodist Church!

A little about our summer camp program:

In God’s backyard is an exciting and energy filled summer camp where kids can come and join other kids as they play and experience GOD’s love.  Kids participate in fun outdoor games, sing Christian songs, learn important Bible lessons, watch live magic shows, field trips, dig into yummy treats and make lasting friendships.  We will have a Preschool Camp in June for kids age 2.5 to pre-kindergarten and a two-week session in July for kids age 3 to rising 6th graders.  For the two week camp, you can sign up for one or both weeks!
