A God and Nature Day Camp will be held at Willow Heights Park from July 15 through Aug. 2. Lee Byran, representing Alpine Resort Ministries of Hotchkiss, said the purpose would be to promote the use of outdoor spaces in town and to provide a character-based event that is fun, safe and free.
The event will serve local families and promote community. The events will be for kids between 5 and 12 years of age.
The cost of the events will be covered by weekly host groups. The events will be Monday through Friday for three weeks. Insurance for the day camp will be provided by an insurance rider with Calvary Baptist Church in Delta.
Activities will be games, Bible-based stories with kids playing key roles, crafts, snacks, songs and musical games. The games aren't athletic type games, but games that promote cooperation and interaction. The day camp will start at one o'clock and be over by 4 p.m.
On Friday each week there will be a closing event for the entire family. There will be inflatable playground equipment. Byran said the tear down on Fridays will be completed by 7:30 p.m.
Funding for the event will be provided by each group that comes. There will be no cost to the town. Byran is also contacting local businesses for sponsorships.
Among those providing resources are Colorado Baptist General Convention, of which Alpine Resort Ministries is a member, the Uncompahgre Baptist Association, Grace Fellowship Baptist Church in Alabama, Grace Baptist Church in Las Vegas, Mesa View Baptist Church in Mesa, Colorado, and Calvary Baptist Church in Delta.
Other local churches may be invited to participate.
The God and Nature Day Camp can accommodate 30 to 50 kids.blog comments powered by Disqus
