Thursday nights in Bithlo.

Inside one of the classrooms adults and children love craft time! Jean from Avalon Church brings craft supplies for them to do every Thursday before the meal is served. I've really enjoyed getting to know Tara. She's the adult in the photo. She is teaching the kids how to design with fuse beads...very fun!
Hanging out on the swings! The three girls on the right are students at Orange County Academy.
Young people from various churches come out on Thursday nights and play games on the lawn. The kids love this!!!! Last night they played football!

Information Meetng

We will have a brief meeting at my house on Friday, June 3 at 6:30 pm.
I will provide dinner.
Email me for my address.

The Curriculum

Here is the general information:

The camp will run from June 13-Aug 19th, Monday-Friday 10am-1pm.
18415 11th. Avenue Orlando, Florida 32833

The camp is for children 5-12yrs but if you have younger child you can bring them as long as that child stays with you.

There are a couple a weeks in there where there are some groups coming in to do VBS.
You can still help out then too. I'm sure they'd be glad for extra hands who know the children.

Church from Powdersville, SC June 25-July 1
Metro Church in Winter Springs , FL July 4-8
First Presbyterian of Maitland, FL July 18-22

Check out this curriculum! It looks like so much FUN!!!
I'm expecting it to arrive today!
I just want to get to really planning...Hee hee hee!
I pray I can get some people signed up to help on paper today. We'll take whatever time you can give. Maybe you can commit to once a week from 10am-1pm. If you want to come out every other day or all week that would be great too. Can you lead singing? Help parents fill out registration forms? Be in a skit? Lead a small group in discussion? Tell corny jokes? Kick a ball? Run the AV equipment? Apply a band aid? Smile? Hug a child? We can use your help. Talk to God about it and then I'll get you on the schedule!

We are serving a delicious spaghetti dinner in Bithlo tonight.

The adventure begins!!!!

I'm really thrilled about this Summer camp! I love to see God work! I'm praying that it will pleas e God and make Him famous. He loves these little ones and wants them to know Him & His word. He wants them to know how much He loves them. I hope to love them in Jesus' name.

This blog will serve to provide information and photos of what God is doing.
