A Letter from the Director
It is hard to believe we are already to our last week of camp! We are so thankful for the time, fun, and countless memories we have made with your children this summer! As we see our summer come to an end, your campers are going to LOVE everything we have planned this week.
We started our day out today working on our weekly verse and learning what it means to live a life of action. Our campers will be putting into action everything we learned this summer as we work to raise money for a wonderful cause. We will be raising money for a children's home in Eldoret, KENYA. This children's home has a special place in my heart as I spent two months serving there during college. Each group will have a jar they will try to fill throughout the week with spare change. All moneys earned will go directly to the children's home As a special incentive, the group whose jar weighs the most on Friday, will get to PIE THEIR COUNSELORS!
This afternoon we started our week with a special yummy surprise as our kids DECORATED COOKIES under the direction of Northlake's Junior High Cheerleading team. Tomorrow our tasty treats continue as we gear up for our last TASTY TUESDAY SNOWBALLS of the summer! On Wednesday your campers can look forward to THE BIGGEST WATERSLIDE YET!
Thursday our campers are going on one of the favorite field trips of the summer. Campers K-4 will be going to the DISCOVERY CENTER and our 5/6 grade campers will be enjoying laser tag fun at SAFARI QUEST. Both of these locations are in Hammond. Our groups will be enjoying a picnic lunch after our field trip at a fun park in Hammond.
Friday we will bring our summer to a close with our ANNUAL TALENT SHOW! You do not want to miss this special performance from our campers as each group will have a special performance. If your camper wants to do an individual act or an act with a small group, they will need to fill our the permission slip attached in today's email. We look forward to seeing you all on Friday AT 1:00 PM for this special Camp Northlake tradition!
