Missions day camp at SBC to explore ‘I Can Do It, Too!’

ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP)–Special activities are planned again this year for children of parents attending the Southern Baptist Convention in Atlanta. The “I Can Do It, Too!” day camp will be Tuesday and Wednesday, June 15-16.
The day camp is for boys and girls who will have completed grades one through six by June of this year. It is contracted through the mission education team of the North American Mission Board with Duane Ortego, childhood education consultant and former missionary to South Korea. Ortego coordinated day camp activities last year in Salt Lake City.
In addition to the regular mission education emphasis, career missionaries will be on hand to share their testimonies with the children. The day camp also will include field trips and mission points.
Registration is open to the first 200 children, and pre-registration is available by calling the LifeWay Christian Resource Center Advanced Registration line at 1-800-254-2022 or through the Internet at [email protected]. This year the cost is $70. The schedule is Tuesday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (lunch included) and Wednesday 8 a.m. to noon. Parents also will be required to sign a medical release for their children.
Volunteers staff the day camp, and anyone who is interested in volunteering should call Ortego at (770) 704-0267.
Day campers should dress comfortably and are required to wear a day camp wristband, day camp T-shirt, soft-sole recreation shoes and socks.
