It wasn’t just an ordinary five-day Bible camp, as children with their plastic spoons decorated doughnuts and cupcakes.
The camp, which ran from Nov 24-28, was called Cool Kingdom Party – Mary Leads us Closer to Jesus.
The theme served as a reminder to the children, about 60 of them from K2 to Primary 6, as well as the facilitators, that God’s Kingdom is “cool” enough for all people to enter.
During the camp, which took place at the Church of St Mary of the Angels, children participated in fun-filled activities by going to five different stations – snack, faith, games, music and craft.
Activities that they took part in were all different and were based on the virtues of obedience, purity, faith, love and joy.
There was good feedback about the camp, which was organised by the West District Bible Camp committee of the Church of St Mary of the Angels, Church of St Ignatius, Church of St Francis of Assisi, Blessed Sacrament Church and Church of the Holy Cross.
“I liked the fact that the kids weren’t shy and tried to learn as much as they could to be good children of God,” said Jiannah Bianca, a 13-year-old volunteer from Blessed Sacrament Church. She was among the more than 50 volunteers.
In an appreciation note, a parent wrote: “ I just wanted to express my deep gratitude to all who helped out in the West District Bible Camp.”
The Office for the New Evangelisation provided advice, support, guidance and resources to the committee in the planning and implementation of the camp.
