June 22–26, 2020

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, our theme is Race of Faith. We will be focused on Training Kids for Life and Godliness using 1 Timothy 4:7-8 as our guide. Our Olympians (aka, kids!) will be inspired to respond personally to the Word of God and run on His team as true champions in life’s marathon Race of Faith!

Camp JAM will take place Monday-Friday, June 22-26, from 9:00a to 1:30p on the church campus. Lunch is included! Children may be dropped off as early as 8:45a and must be picked up no later than 1:45p. ALSO, plan to join us on Friday at noon for our Showcase!

CLASSES:
Rising 1st & 2nd graders are grouped together in their own special Bible, Choir, Music, Movement, and Hands-On classes. (They will also enjoy some free-play time on the playground.) 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, AND everyone will take Bible and Choir!

Each student will take one class per category and will number in order of preference his or her top three (3) 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.
