SUMMER PROGRAM INFORMATION
Welcome to Bodyworx Laboratories, where amazing research allows children to be miniaturized and transported inside the human body. While there, children can tour such places as the eye, the digestive system, the heart, and more–all from the inside! Throughout this exciting adventure, children will be taught how the body testifies to God’s majesty and wisdom as they participate in Bible stories, Scripture memory, object lessons and more.
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.
More than just a play camp, our preschool summer program (18 months -4 years) and our School Age program (5-12 years old) are designed for children to practice essential skills in order to be better equipped for the new school year. Children in our preschool program will be engage in language development, whole group and small group activities, arts and crafts, music and movement and more.... Our school age children will be engaged in daily enrichment activities in reading, writing, math concepts, science, social skills, team building and arts & crafts.
Our school age children will be divided into two groups. Group one will consist of 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).
