Children's Ministry Leadership: Service Camp for Kids


Service Camp for Kids is a unique concept and offered an experience for elementary kids that focused on serving God and translated into actual community service by the kids and their leaders. During the week kids participated in skill stations specifically for use for service in the community. As a result the campers fed the homeless, presented songs in sign language at a senior retirement home, sewed pillowcases for a children's hospital and made balloon animals/objects at a service agency family picnic. This could be adapted in many ways for your children's or youth programs.
