Weird Church’s Summer Day Camp program provides equipped leaders to nurture the spirit of each child, in order to support children and families to live lives of faith, hope, and compassion in the world. The camp provides a safe, welcoming, high quality, faith-based and affordable summer day camp experience (consistent with United Church Theology) for children between the ages of 5 and 11 years old. Children have the opportunity to share in the ancient stories of Christian faith in creative and exciting ways, encouraging them to deepen their own relationships with God and the community.
This Camp also provides opportunities for youth helpers to be mentored in leadership skills.
In keeping with the vision of Weird Church, this camp is a fully inclusive, safe space, for children who come from all the different ways family is broadly defined and understood. Children (and their families) do not need to belong to this or any church to attend, are welcome from any faith expression or none at all. Ancient Christian stories will be wondered about together and explored through song, storytelling, play, and acts of service while being rooted and grounded in love and belonging.
July 2-5, 2019 (Tuesday-Friday) 9 am - 3 pm at Cumberland United Church
$60 per child
“All You Need is Love!”
Through storytelling (biblical and contemporary), art, crafts, games, and activities, children will explore the “Great Commandment” to love, following Jesus’ teachings and example: what it means to welcome; what it means to love God, self, and others; what it means to care; what does it mean to grow seeds of love within; and what it means to share the story of God’s love with the world.
