Christmas is quickly approaching. For most, it’s a time of joy, celebration, and wonder. It is a time to come together with family and friends to celebrate the birth of our savior with a spirit of peace and love. Join us as we celebrate with families in need and show them the love and generosity of Jesus. You may never know how your gift has impacted the lives of children and their families. Share the love and hope that Jesus brought with those that need it most. Stop by the tree in the lobby beginning, Nov. 11th & 12th, and choose your tag. The simple act of giving a gift can change the world of a child.

We also have the need for many volunteers to sign up to serve to pass out the tags from the trees, collect gifts as they are returned, and serve at the shopping events that will take place during the month of December.

How many leaders are going?  Campers will be in small groups with other kids of their gender and grade with a group leader.  Ratio approx. 10 kids/1 leader.  Other support leaders will be attending as well to help with games, events, etc.

What if my child can’t swim?  All swim activities include licensed life guards who monitor the safety of the group.  Leaders will be present with kids at all times. If your child is not a proficient swimmer, swim vests are available. We highly recommend packing a personal, clearly labeled swim vest for your child to ensure the best fit.

What if I need a scholarship?  Partial scholarships may be available on a case by case basis.  Each child must be registered first, before a scholarship request can be completed.  Once the registration process is complete, please contact your fpKIDS Campus Director for more information on how to pursue additional assistance.

What will my child learn?  We will use a variety of group & individual activities to creatively teach your child these practical truths to deepen their faith and relationship with God.  As a parent, you will receive a tool that unpacks the daily scripture focus during camp week, how it can apply to your life and how you can apply it to your relationship with your child after camp week.
