Summer 2019 – Hennepin Kids for LYFE

Hennepin Kids for LYFE
2019 Summer Camps

Earth Camp was wild!

Kids Grades 1–6 made new friends and reconnected with existing friends on the lovely shores of Lake Sylvia!

Campers celebrated God’s creation and learned about their role in creation care–all while enjoying some of their favorite outdoor activities including swimming, hiking, bonfires, tie-dye, fishing and the ever-popular gaga pit!

Vacation Bible Camp: To Mars and Beyond was a BLAST!
To Mars and Beyond was a huge success! In our first ever all-day VBS, we had over 50% more campers than last year–what a blessing to be able to share the love of Jesus with so many kids! Thanks to all of our “To Mars and Beyond” campers that joined us! We had a great time learning about how God can do “far beyond all that we can ask or imagine.” Our imaginations went wild with our science experiments, crafts, storytelling and music. A very special thanks also goes out to our amazing group of volunteers for the week! With over 50% more campers than last year, our volunteers rose to the exciting challenge of leading all of these amazing and energetic campers throughout the week!
