International Costume & Clowning

2010 Peanut - Kids Camp 7-9 years oldDates: June 17 – 24 — Evangelism

Are you the kind of kid who loves to clown around? How about doing it while singing and praising the Lord?

If so, this is the team for you! Your team will practice singing music at the Lord’s Boot Camp, along with running the Obstacle Course, memorizing Bible verses, and learning how to use puppets.

These new skills will be useful tools as you have opportunities to share the love of Jesus in the communities around the Teen Missions base here in Florida. You and your team members will wear either clown or authentic national costumes from around the world as you sing and share the Gospel message. Remember, no one is too young to share the Gospel and no one is too old to hear the Gospel.

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.
