Summer Mini-Camp


If you have children who are too young to attend summer camp or
if your church doesn’t plan a summer camp, hold a Mini-Camp at your
church. At our church, we began our Mini-Camps for children ages 4
to 6. We wanted them to get used to summer camp and not get
homesick when attending future summer camps.

Our Mini-Camp begins on a Friday evening around 6 and ends at 2
p.m. Saturday with water fun — including sprinklers and wading
pools. Kids choose whether they want to sleep in tents or in the
designated girls “dorm” or boys “dorm,” which are Sunday school
rooms. We have a camp theme, devotions, meals, snacks, games,
awards or certificates for all campers, and camp T-shirts. Past
themes include Run the Race, Strong in the Lord, and We’re on a
Mission. Young teenagers help as counselors in training. Church
members provide food, meal preparation, and cleanup. We charge each
camper $15 to help defray costs of extra utility use, any food not
donated, and T-shirts. Our kids look forward to this event each
