Backyard summer camp: bolt

We want to help you and your kids create more space for one-on-one ministry, and this year’s Backyard Summer Camp: BOLT is an amazing opportunity to do just that. Our prayer is that BOLT will help your kids grow in their own walk with God while sharing the hope of Christ with others in your community.

How Does Backyard Summer Camp Work?

This three-day Backyard Summer Camp requires minimal preparation and is designed for you to do with friends, classmates, teammates, neighbors or your own family at home. By registering for camp, you’ll receive an email with step-by-step instructions, links to worship songs with hand motions and videos that will lead you through each day’s content. It’s that simple!

When is Backyard Summer Camp?

You choose! When registering for BOLT, you’ll receive all the digital materials you need to participate in camp any time throughout the summer. Whether you choose to do it in three consecutive days, three separate weekends, or all in one day, you get to decide what works best for you! Each daily video is only 20-30 minutes!

Will I Have to Prepare Anything Ahead?

This Backyard Summer Camp is different than anything we've done before and it's designed to be done with minimal materials. Each daily craft is a simple paper origami activity and the games require minimal materials that you will most likely have around the house. If you want to get creative and add more activities, that's up to you! But our goal is for this to create an opportunity for you to slow down and focus on building relationships with your own kids or those you've invited to participate with you.

What if I Need Help Connecting?

Connecting with one another is a huge part of camp this year, but we know it’s not always easy. Whether you’re new to Woodmen or have been attending for many years, our hope is that you’ll grow in your walk with Christ and your relationship with others this summer. During the registration process, you’ll have a chance to mention whether you need help connecting or if you’re open to inviting people to join your camp. If you need further help, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us! We’d love to get to know you and help you connect with others.

In light of Woodmen’s Year of Sabbath and One Another, we are praying that this opportunity will impact each of our Woodmen families as well as those in our community who have never before heard the hope of Jesus! If you have further questions, please contact Jennifer, our Woodmen Kids Administrative Assistant.
