Summer DOCK

Seven-week summer session, July 8 – Aug. 19 (Sundays)
Completed Grades K-5

DOCK (Disciples of Christ Kids, our children’s education program) continues into summer for children in grades K-5. The seven-week session will explore the life of Moses: a man on a mission! Each week will highlight a different story and include hands-on learning activities to make the story of this important Bible figure come alive.
Join us for any Sunday worship service — 8:45 or 10:15 a.m. in Great Hall or 9 or 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary. During the summer, all children start in worship with their families and are dismissed for DOCK from there. No registration required.

Children who have not yet attended Kindergarten are invited to join the nursery, where they will read the same story and have the opportunity for a related craft/activity.

Counselors from Green Lake Bible Camp near Spicer, MN, bring sleep-away camp as an on-site day camp at St. Andrew’s.  The day includes great music, Bible lessons, fun games and crafts — led by Green Lake staff.  We invite day campers to “Get Lost!” (“Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it” Matthew 10:39) in the things that bring us closer to God. Day campers will focus on the daily themes of getting lost in Love, Prayer, Service, and Sabbath. St. Andrew’s is excited to offer this new day camp option for summer 2018!

God chose some unlikely characters to be leaders and share His word with the world! We’ll experience a different “misfit” each day through hands-on activities and games.  This four-day camp gives an opportunity to dive deeper into the Bible in a smaller, yet energetic group environment. Learn how you could be the next “misfit” God uses to share His love in the world.


camp1Summer Camp at Camp Wapo:

Come to Camp – where fun and faith collide! You’ll meet Jesus in new and exciting ways through friendships, inspiring worships, fun games, caring counselors, blazing campfires, and more. Learn how we are called to live in community… together! Camp Wapo is located in Amery, WI, about an hour from the church.

Register now to attend a camp session with other children from St. Andrew’s. All registrations are handled by Camp Wapo and families are responsible to bring their child to and from camp. St. Andrew’s staff are onsite through the week to be a familiar face for children. If these dates don’t work for your family, sign up for a different week or other Wapo offering.

Space is limited!  Camp Wapo holds spots for St. Andrew’s until March 15. After this priority registration period, spaces will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Camp Wapo does ask for a deposit up front, but will work with anyone who desires to attend camp — do not hesitate to ask for assistance. For questions on the registration process, contact Camp directly; campwapo@campwapo.org or 715.268.8434.
