School’s Out for Summer

Most kids are getting out of school this week. While I think that parents generally enjoy the freer schedule, absence of school paperwork and perhaps, some extra snooze time in the morning, summer break also poses a huge dilemma….what to do to keep those kids occupied?

ACC has some great activities going on this summer to keep the kids busy, out of the house and off the video games! Many of these events also offer a wonderful way for adults and teens to serve right here at ACC :

June 25-29: Join us for Halo Hoops Basketball Camp. Dave Davies and Co. will be traveling from North Carolina to engage children ages 6-13 years in a Christian basketball camp. Campers will learn drills, skills and fundamentals during their week of camp, along as hearing the gospel message throughout the week. Registration is still open at www.halosports.org

• How can you help? Dave and his crew of coaches will be hungry. Think about signing up to provide a meal for the coaches during the week of camp. Lunch should serve 10; dinner should serve 3-4.

July 9-13: Sky Day Camp is here! Register your child now to enjoy a week full of fun. In the mornings, children will be learning about the truths of God, while venturing through exciting and engaging stations. Each afternoon, campers will enjoy fun field trips. The week culminates with an on-site family picnic and closing ceremony. Camp is open to children entering 1st – 6th grade in the fall. Register online at www.acchurch.org

• How can you help? We still have a few openings for adults or teens to assist station leaders during the mornings from 9-12 each day. See Kris to find out how you can help!

Teens need to keep busy too! There are also exciting things happening this summer in the Middle School and High School Ministries:

June 22-23: Pit Stop kids enjoy a night of games, fellowship, campfire and sleep out in tents right here at ACC.

June 25-July 1: Oasis students will engage in a local mission trip, followed by a weekend trip to the Wisconsin Dells. Registration is open through June 10th.

July 15-21: Join your Pit Stop friends for a great camp experience at Lake Geneva Youth Camp! Open to students entering 6th-8th grade, LGYC offers great outdoor activities as well as meaningful time with God. Contact the ACC office for registration information, or register online at www.lgyc.org. To receive a discount and ensure our ACC children end up together, please note on the registration that you are from ACC.

July 27: Oasis students will venture up to Warren Dunes in MI. Kids will enjoy hiking, swimming and just relaxing and soaking up some rays on the beach.

August 1-8: High school students will join a group of ACC adults in traveling to Honduras for our 3rd medical mission trip to this impoverished country. Guaranteed to be a life changing experience!

• How can you help? Support our youth by attending the All-Church Cookout this Sunday, June 10th. All donations will go to help fund the trip for our high school students.

There is a lot going on at ACC over the summer for our children! Sign up your child, or volunteer yourself for one of these great opportunities!
