The title comes from a Bible verse, Mark 10:27. Faith and imaginations will soar as kids discover that everything is possible with God, organizers said.
SKY will be held from June 18 to June 22 at the church, 11628 N. Church St.
Kids participate in memorable Bible learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and dig into yummy treats, experience Bible adventures and test out science gizmos.
Kids at SKY will join an international mission effort to quash malaria in the African country of Mali by helping to send more than a million mosquito nets to protect Malian children.
How does it differ from day camp? Huntley Patch sought an answer to the question, and others, from Tom Heling, one of the organizers and volunteers.
Huntley Patch(HP): What is vacation Bible school?
Heling: It runs for a week, Monday through Friday. It’s an opportunity for children ages 4 through sixth grade. What it does is it allows them to come and learn about things about God.
HP: What is SKY?
Heling: The theme this year is a presentation group company called SKY. There are five stations; each one is built around a biblical reference. It gets young children in touch with God at their level.
HP: Do you do things like traditional summer or day camps, like make S’mores?
Heling: I don’t know if they are on the menu, but we do have a kitchen. There are four ladies who will be providing food around the storyline that day at the five stations. One (menu item) had to do with making ice cream floats.
HP: Is it more fun than regular day camp?
Heling: I think so. This one is very much a hands-on camp. The kids will be doing things they can take home. One station is working with chemistry. I think it will be very exciting for the children.
