Then they’ll journey back at the end of the day for powerful reminders that they can always count on God…the greatest treasure of all!
Zip Line Bible Time
Zip right to the point with hands-on activities and small-group discussion to help kids work through how and why they can always count on God. High above the jungle floor, amid a dense tangle of treetops, kids experience the sights and sounds of the jungle canopy as they learn who God is. They’ll dig into Bible stories to discover that no one but God could be their Creator, Provider, Protector, Savior, and King. Hands-on activities and meaningful small-group discussions will help kids work through how and why they can always count on God.
Serve With A Mighty Purpose through activities and projects that help kids put their faith into action and impact the lives of others. Slug-A-Bug S.W.A.M.P. is a one-of-a-kind destination where kids impact the lives of others—in their communities, countries, and around the world! As they learn what it means to count on God, kids have the opportunity to put that faith into action by participating in practical mission projects to help out kids across borders or friends just down the block.
Fuel up, jump up, and get moving with games that focus on what’s so great about God. Run with the big cats and eat like them too! Fuel up on a wide variety of yummy, low-prep snack options at the Jaguar Junction snack hut, then jump up and get moving with games that challenge the mind and muscles. Food and fun are designed to pair up just right with the theme and keep kids focused on what they can KNOW—they can count on God, their Creator, Provider, Protector, Savior, and King! Choose from indoor and outdoor games, and even special science-based fun! Whether they are getting soaked, running relays, or testing their Bible memory might, kids will learn to count on God while building teamwork, confidence, and excitement!
Jump to the jungle beat and make musical crafts while learning lyrics and matching motions. Watch kids’ imaginations grow by leaps and bounds as they take creativity to new levels—sound levels, that is! Through the challenge of creating instruments, learning lyrics and matching motions, kids will stretch their talents and strengthen their passion to praise God—the greatest treasure of all!
