Friday was our final time for our church's summer camp called BREAKAWAY TO THE ARCTIC FREEZE.
Over 3000 kids attended in 3 different sessions. We had 1800 volunteers to help with the amazing program.
Even though the temps were in the 80's an iceberg or two could be sighted around the campus.

This was some of the wall decoration in the 4 year olds art room.

Not the best picture but I wanted to show these bouncing, happy 4 year olds singing and doing lots of hand motions to the songs led by some amazing workers. I believe there were around 200 - 4 year olds( total )in the day sessions and just a bit less in the evening session. That is a lot of little 4 year old kiddos.
The 4 year olds had their own rooms, separate from the older kids, for their activities, story time, theme plays and outdoor play area. It really makes for a safe and fun learning environment . They especially loved the water play and using their outside voices.

Isn't he a cute decoration? The art room was just a delight to see

Wow! That was some VBS! Ours starts this week. The theme is archeology I think.

What a ministry! Loved the energy your image captured of the four-year-olds in motion. Also especially liked your closer "W" windmill photo that was more of a closeup. Something about that sky and the colors in the structure.
