SUMMER PROGRAM INFORMATION
The Bible tells us that God gave us the Ten Commandments as a guide to teach us right from wrong. The Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1–17 and Deuteronomy 5:4–21) are key to understanding the Old Testament and by extension the ministry of Jesus. The Commandments show us God’s moral standard for how his people should live. Come journey with us as we explore why God gave us the Ten Commandments.
About Our Program:
The mission of our summer enrichment program is to:
Teach children about God’s Love and how they should obey his word.
Present clear and correct observation, interpretation, and application of Biblical truths in a fun and engaging program.
Equip teachers and assistants with clear guidance and instructions to change spiritual growth in students at all age levels. In addition the program provides successful opportunities that enhance creativity, imagination, social, cognitive and teamwork skills.
Provide daily schedules that include age appropriate activities related to the week’s theme in a fun, professional and spiritual supervised setting.
While learning the Ten Commandments and completing daily activities, campers are exposed to the beauty and excitement of God’s Word. Moreover, they are introduced to the transforming power of a deep faith and love for Jesus Christ. More than just a play camp, our Preschool summer program (18 months – 4 years) and our School Age program (5-12 year olds) are designed for children to practice essential skills in order to be better equipped for the school year. Your child will experience the thrill of learning in a fun hands-on way. After each lesson, the children will demonstrate an understanding of the Ten Commandments by being able to state a few of them each week. Please review the commandments with your child at home.
Our children will be divided into two groups. Group one will consist of Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd grade. Group two will consist of 3rd grade and up. There will be two staff members assigned to each group. Children should bring their Bible, notebook, (2) No. 2 pencils, a change of clothes, bug spray and sun block.
Through the employment of a well-trained and highly motivated staff, Antioch strives to provide an environment in which children can benefit from both personal relationships and one-on-one discipleship and interaction. Our extraordinary teachers provide a highly engaging learning environment – while encouraging continued learning through enrichment learning, indoor and outdoor activities and off site field trips (5-12 year olds only).
