2021 Virtual Summer
Compassion Camp and Youth Music Camp
Registration closes on June 14, 2021!
There is no charge to attend Compassion Camp (Preschool-5th Grade). Each Tuesday morning will introduce our theme, and share a Bible story, a song and an activity. On Thursday morning we will engage the theme through a variety of adaptive movement (yoga, stretching, Compassion Games – based off the summer Olympic games, and more) as well as learn from a variety of local and wider church speakers who teach us about how they do compassion in action. Look for more detailed reflection on Compassion Camp in the August/September’s Lux newsletter.
This summer our Compassion Camp service project is all about leading kids to learn and grow in local benevolence and empathy – asking, what are your favorite books in which the characters show compassion in action? We will be accepting donations to equip our ULC Book Nook with these children’s books. Children will be given the opportunity to share a new or gently used book; financial and physical book donations from our congregation are always welcome. Please let me know if you have ideas about children’s books for the Nook, so that we can keep track of donations and content.
Themes for Compassion Camp include:
All Around Me – Exodus 2:1–10
For Myself – 1 Kings 19:4–8
To the Neighbor – Luke 10:25–37
With the World – Acts 2:1–13, 42–47
Along the Way – Romans 16:1–16
Children age 3 through 5th grade are eligible. If you have an older youth who is interested, I would appreciate their help! Please let me know. I welcome and encourage youth 6th grade and up to engage in Compassion Camp as a youth leader! Help us prepare leaders of every age in compassion and loving kindness.
Our Summer Youth Music camp (3rd - 6th Grade) will offer Choir, Ukulele, Recorder, Handbells and Sign Language.
Youth Music Camp Instructors:
The cost to attend the Summer Youth Music Camp is $65 per camper + $20 for each additional camper per family, and includes the cost of one handbell and one recorder.
Ukuleles will be available for a refundable deposit as needed. For more information on borrowing a ukulele please contact the church office. Students may use their own instrument or if you would like to purchase one, we have suggestions to help you do that.
