June 20–24, 2022

for rising first–sixth graders

Registration Goes Live Online on Wednesday, March 23, and Closes on Sunday, April 24.

Camp JAM (Jesus, Arts, & More) combines the best of SAPC’s past Music & Arts Camp and Vacation Bible School to minister to the whole child, training them to apply the gifts, talents, and abilities that God has blessed each of them with, so that they may be bright lights for Christ through their thoughts, actions, work, and play.

This year, our theme is “I Wonder…” We will be using Psalm 40:5 as our main verse.

“Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us.”

Kids will learn from God’s Word about early church leaders Paul, Peter, John, and Timothy, who helped the first Jesus-followers wonder what made their stories unique, what gifts God gave them (and how they could use those gifts to serve), what they could learn from others, and how they could spend time with God.

Camp JAM will take place Monday-Friday, June 20-24, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the church campus. Lunch is included! Children may be dropped off as early as 8:45 a.m. and must be picked up no later than 1:45 p.m. ALSO, plan to join us on Friday at 12 p.m. for our Showcase!

CLASSES

Rising 1st & 2nd graders are grouped together in color groups, which each have their own Bible, Choir, Hands-On, Movement, and Music classes. (They will also enjoy some free-play time on the playground.) These campers do not choose their own classes.

Rising 3rd-6th Graders will take Bible and Choir, and one class from each of the following categories:

  • Hands-On
  • Movement
  • Music

Each student will take one class per category. When registering, please be prepared to indicate (in order of preference) his or her top three (3) preferred classes for each category. (In case a camper’s most-preferred option is not available, we will place them in their second most-preferred option, etc.) Class placement will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, and will be determined by class schedules, class-size limitations, and teacher availability. Though every effort will be made, exact placement cannot be guaranteed.
