Wondering what to do with your children this summer?
“All You Need Is Love!” is a summer day camp for children ages 5-11, with camp taking place in Cumberland and Courtenay, July 2-5 and July 8-12 respectively.
Co-ordinated by Rev. Ingrid Brown, minister of children, youth and families at St. George’s United Church in Courtenay, and founder of Cumberland’s Weird Church, the programs are open to all children.
“All You Need Is Love!” Summer Day Camp combines storytelling, arts, games, crafts, and activities to nurture the spirit of each child, in order to support children and families to live lives of faith, hope, and compassion in the world.
The camp provides a safe, welcoming, high quality, faith-based and affordable summer day camp experience, centred around encouraging children to explore the “Great Commandment” to love following Jesus’ teachings and example: what it means to welcome; what it means to love God, self, and others; what it means to care; what does it mean to grow seeds of love within; and what it means to share the story of God’s love with the world.
This camp also provides opportunities for youth helpers to be mentored in leadership skills.
Camp runs 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. and costs $60 per week, per child. Some bursaries are available; contact Rev. Brown.
