REGISTRATION OPENS APRIL 24, 2018!

June 25-29, 2018

FOR RISING FIRST–SIXTH GRADERS

Camp JAM (Jesus, Arts, & More) combines the best of SAPC’s past Music & Arts Camp and Vacation Bible School to minister to the whole child, training them to apply the gifts, talents, and abilities that God has blessed each of them with, so that they may be bright lights for Christ through their thoughts, actions, work, and play.

This year, come and learn about Daniel and how a life TRANSFORMED by God leads to faithfulness. God uses people like Daniel and his story to point people to Jesus!

Our Bible lessons will focus on Romans 12:2-
  • Day 1: Be different – (Daniel 1) Daniel and his friends obeyed God.
  • Day 2: Renew your mind – (Daniel 3) Daniel’s friends did not give in.
  • Day 3: Be wise – (Daniel 5) God gave Daniel wisdom.
  • Day 4: Trust God – (Daniel 6) God was with Daniel.
  • Day 5: Be transformed in Christ

  • Camp JAM will be Monday-Friday, June 25-29, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the church campus. Lunch is included! Children may be dropped off as early as 8:45 a.m., and must be picked up no later than 1:45 p.m. ALSO, plan to join us on Friday at 6:30 p.m. for our Showcase!

    CLASSES:

    Rising 1st & 2nd graders are grouped together in their own special Bible, Choir, Music, Movement, and Hands-On classes. They do not choose their own classes.

    Rising 3rd-6th Graders will take a class from each of the following categories:
  • Music
  • Movement
  • Hands-on apps
  • Plus, everyone takes Bible and Choir!

  • Each student will take one class per category and will number in order of preference his or her top five (5) preferred classes for each category. Class placement will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, and will be determined by class schedules, class-size limitations, and teacher availability. Though every effort will be made, exact placement cannot be guaranteed.
