. CAMP EXCEL - 2018

Camp Excel is a summer reading program for the area children.  This year we had 13 children each Saturday.  During the camp the children read to an adult with the hope that this break in their summer vacation will get them back into the coming school year ready to continue improving their reading skills.  Along with reading the children learned new church camp songs; ate lunch; made crafts; and welcomed special guests with exciting stories to tell about animals and the environment.  Camp excel is a blessing and our congregation is joyous over the ability to do it.  The theme this year was the environment.

 

Books, books, and more books.  The children can pick out their own book to read. Some of the adults wait expectantly for the children to show up.
A local farmer brought over his potato harvester.  We talked about the environment and how important the land is. The craft for this day was bat houses.  Bats are very important for our environment.
   
 Here the children listen to a speaker from N.E.S.T. They were learning about sea turtles and protecting their eggs on the Outer Banks. Crafts for each week gave the children a chance to be creative.  Here they are to make a bat book-marker.  Maybe they will get a book on bats for school!
   
 The kitchen crew was there every Saturday to give the children more energy before they left for home. Lunch was baked beans, chicken nuggets, fruit (which bats love) and juice.
