Cookie Command

2010 Peanut Kids CampDates: June 17 – 24 — Evangelism

Do you love cookies? Did you know baking cookies can be missionary work?

Join us at the Lord’s Boot Camp to find out how your love for cookies and the words of Jesus can be used together in missions work. During Boot Camp, you will be trained to use puppets, music and Wordless Books to share the Gospel with others.

Your team will also mix and bake the dough for yummy cookies that you will share with military personnel at a nearby Air Force base. Each cookie will be packaged with a Bible verse so these men and women who serve our country will know just how much Jesus loves them.

Peanut General Information


You need to be 7, 8 or 9 years old to be part of the Peanut program. You must turn 7 before the program ends. You cannot turn 10 before or during the program.

Length of Involvement

Sunday, June 17 – Sunday, June 24. If coming by plane, you must arrive between 8 AM and 5 PM on Saturday, June 16. Teen Missions will pick up team members at the Orlando International Airport. If driving, you must arrive between 8 and 10 AM on Sunday, June 17. The program ends after Commissioning on Sunday, June 24. Parents should plan to pick their children up at that time. Children flying home from Orlando Inter- national Airport should depart after 9 AM and before 12 NOON on Monday, June 25.


The Peanut program is a blend of training and actual mission experiences. Peanuts will learn how to share the Gospel, and they will go and do just that. Peanuts on work teams will learn how to do the work and then they will do it. Some elements of the training, such as music, puppets and the Obstacle Course—just their size with a rope swing, tunnel and wall—continue throughout the Peanut program. Peanuts will be taught about the customs and people of other lands by nationals from countries around the world, who will share about their country while dressed in national costume. There will be daily devotions, prayer, Bible memory and Scripture lessons on topics such as Neatness and Order, Talking Back, Authority, Stealing and Lying. During evening rallies under the Peanut Big Top, each team shares their cheers and singing, Miss Piggy gives cleanliness awards and the Obstacle Course results are announced. A missionary speaker will present the evening message.


Each team stays in their own tent site, two or three Peanuts to a tent. The sites are close to the bathrooms and the Peanut Big Top Tent. Peanut teams eat together. The day begins around 6 AM and the rallies end at 8 PM. At least one fun craft or activity is planned each day; these activities include swimming in the pool, making hand puppets, coloring, block printing t-shirts (the same way they’ve done in India for centuries) and using Wordless Books and Bracelets to practice evangelism.

Provided by Teen Missions

Provided for each Peanut is a canteen, food tray, bowl, cup, rain poncho, ID badge, activity pack and hard hat (if on a work team). A list of what each Peanut should bring will be sent before the Peanut Boot Camp. Each Peanut will receive a team picture and a DVD of their experience.

  1. Wanting to come with my son. He loves soldiers and he loves to bake cookies! I think this would be perfect for him. Can you give me some info on helping and volunteering there at TMI while he is on his team? I’m a little bit nervous sending him on a plane all by hisself. PS – Its nice to be able to get my kiddo into TMI. FTM here from Trinidad 96!

  2. Could a teenager apply to be a leader for one of these teams?
