Children and Youth:
The Summer School Children and Youth program offers children and young people age-appropriate Bible teaching and activities with an exciting mission focus. There's craft, games, activities, singing, Bible study and of course lots of fun!
The program caters for children aged Prep (2014) to Grade 12 and a crèche is available for children aged 0 – pre school. The Children and Youth program is run by an enthusiastic team of leaders, who have a passion for ministering to young people and for global mission.
The program runs in the morning from 8.45 until lunch time at 12.45, for all ages and again in the evening from 7pm onwards (sessions are between one and two hours) for those aged 6 to 17. No crèche is offered in the afternoons or evening and young children remain with their parents. Everyone under the age of 18 who attends a Children and Youth Program session at Summer School, will need to be signed in and out of the session by their parent/guardian.
Please be aware that NO Children and Youth Program is offered in the afternoons and parents are responsible for children during this time. To register for the program, please ensure that all parental consent forms are completed prior to Summer School and lodged with your registration form.
