WHAT IS KIDSGAMES JUNIOR AND HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM THE 1ST-6TH GRADE CAMPERS?
KidsGames Juniors is our creatively crafted program for our small and mighty campers aged 4-5 years olds (PRE-K/Kindergarten) with activities, play, and a curriculum written just for them! Our Junior campers rotate daily between four different stations- Bible Storytelling/Worship, Creative Zone, Sports Zone, and Inflatables Zone.
Our 1st-6th grade campers participate in ‘Rotation Stations’ – a variety of sports and creative activities. As a Team, campers rotate to 3 different stations daily Monday-Wednesday with Thursday being an epic Water Day and Friday being an exciting variety of activities and a Closing Ceremony to close out the week. Campers will also spend time with their peers in fellowship, Bible Storytelling, and amazing worship each day!
ARE CAMPERS STILL ASSIGNED TO SMALL GROUPS?
This year our campers will get the full TEAM experience. Campers will be placed in Teams by grade (1st-3rd grade Teams and 4th-6th grade Teams). For accountability, safety, and building rapport with Group Guides, after being assigned a team color, campers will be placed in smaller groups of 8, and will experience all activities throughout the week.
HOW CAN PARENTS AND TEENS HELP WITH KIDSGAMES?
We love our VOLUNTEERS! We will be recruiting teens (must be in or entering high school) to help lead small groups of children within each Team. Other Volunteers (both teens and adults) can help oversee our creative arts activities and coach sports! Volunteers will also be needed in the areas of Production, Safety, and Operations, First Aid, Photography/Videography, and Station (Sports & Creative Arts) Coaches.
If time does not allow you to volunteer during the weeks of KidsGames, DONATING is another great way to give to our ministry and community. Your donations/sponsorships allow the ministry to reach other North Coast families who otherwise may not be able to participate in KidsGames.
WHAT IF I HAVE A FINANCIAL HARDSHIP?
NCCC would like all children who desire to participate in KidsGames to have that opportunity. If you have a financial hardship, please email email@example.com. KidsGames scholarships are limited to only one week so register early. You will be emailed a form to fill out and then someone will contact you to discuss more in detail. (DO NOT register your child online if you are requesting a scholarship until you have been given further instructions).
