Fun in the Sun - Leaders

Join us for a week in God's creation! This summer, St. Christopher's is partnering with A Rocha, an international non-profit organization which promotes environmental conservation through the lens of the Christian faith. Their summer children's program teaches kids to get up close and personal with nature to learn about our special mandate to care for God's good earth.

 

As in previous years, campers will be assigned to teams which rotate through worship, story,  science, arts, and active living. A healthy (nut-free) snack will be provided each morning. In response to the feedback we've received from parents and parishioners, we're offering just one week of camp this summer, with the option to attend for either a full day or a half day.

 Kids who come for a half day of camp will learn and play from 9-12 as in previous years. Those who stay for the full day will bring a (nut-free) bag lunch and stay until 4pm. The afternoons will be an extension of the morning, with opportunities to explore the day’s theme in greater depth. We will go to the park, visit a farm, and explore plant life at the Royal Botanical Gardens.

Tween Club

Tween Club (ages 10-14) is a free after school program which runs as part of our Tuesday
‘Open Doors’ program. It offers tweens a safe and creative space for crafts, games, movies and snacks.

Shine is our music and theatre program for kids ages 6-12. We meet from 4:30-6:00 PM on Monday evenings during the school year. The group does either a series of skits or a short play at the end of each season, normally at Christmas, Easter, and the end of the school year. A new term began on September 18, but students interested in joining us for January are welcome to drop in at any time.

Young people are involved in every area of our faith community including; serving in the Sanctuary during our Sunday morning worship, reading and leading prayers, caring for children in ‘Grannies place’ and representing our youth group on committees.
