Peanut Kids Boot Camp | 7-9 Years Old

Peanuts learn about other countries and cultures, survive camping in a tent, conquer a unique Obstacle Course and learn truths from God’s Word in just 10 days of action packed training at the Lord’s Boot Camp. Teams also perform work and evangelistic projects that make a real difference.


  1. I have a 9 year old daughter who lies and steals little things here and there. She continues to be disrespectful and is out of control. I don’t know what to do anymore. She seems to take all my disciplinary actions as a joke and would like more information for this boot camp.

    1. Lanyka, I am sorry you are having problems with your daughter. At this time, we are not running our Peanut program. You might want to contact a local pastor who may be able to help you.

  2. my daughter is 9 years old she is out of control she does not listen she is always grounded and she does not listen to no one she is disrespectful and rude I don’t know what to do anymore

    1. Jodi, I am so sorry for what you are going through. At this time, we are no longer running the Peanut Program. Please contact a local pastor who should be able to direct you to someone who can help you.

  3. I have a 9 year old who does not listen. I am ready to send him away.. He burned my house down when he was 4 years old. He is a run away. Refuses to listen was kick out of school in kindergarten. Now that he has gotten older he fights with his siblings lie terribly nobody wants him around just the other day he busted a lady window out in her home and tonight he found a knife and bust a older lady tires up… My mom steps and won’t allow me to do what I have to do to my child… She always hollering you have to talk to him.. There is no talking with him. It’s so bad that his father or step father don’t deal with him. Just me and my mom. And I’m passes stressed out. As of tonight he can never in his life go back out side… He got us band from the pool this summer. He’s costing me money for all the things he has been doing.

    1. Audreyanna, I am so sorry about what you are going through. We did not have the Peanut program this summer. If you read the information, it is not a “discipline” Boot Camp for behavior, but training to introduce the kids to mission opportunities. I would suggest you contact a local pastor who can refer you to someone who would be better equipped to help with your son’s behavior.

  4. Hello my daughter is 7 and came from an abusive father background he is dead now n she hits herself yells n cries over her sister looking at her I have tried grounding spanking n even ignoring her but as it happens day after day I am losing my mind I’ve taken her to church but she tells them what they wanna hear I’ve takin her to dr and they put her on adhd meds she goes to a neurosycoligist next month but I dont really want her on meds. What can I do to help her b a happy kid

    1. Kelly, I am sorry for what your family is going through. We are not doing the Peanut Program this year. Our “Boot Camp” is not a discipline-type camp, but a camp to introduce the kids to mission opportunities. I would suggest your contact Focus On The Family. They should have a local agency you could contact.

  5. I have a 7 year old and we just moved about a month ago and he is acting out so bad lies about everything he does even if he is the only kid. It’s so bad that now in school he is darting away from his teacher almost getting hit by cars and when he gets talked to about it he yells at his teacher he doesn’t care. Everytime he gets in trouble he throws this Hugh fit as if he is being beat. He is hitting little girls. He spits on other kids while waiting for the school bus. He looks at me ( step mom) as if I don’t matter. He has told me that I’m only here to make sure he eats and is taken care of til his dad gets home. He blames other people for making him mad is why he a acts up or because he wants attention. We r to the point of not knowing what to do with him. We first thought it was the move but it is just getting worse. We get calls all day long from school and he has gotten refferals to the principal and he doesn’t care. The list goes on his behavior is bad.we need some assistance please.

    1. Nicole, I am so sorry that you are going through this. Please contact a local pastor who can probably refer you to a professional or service who might be able to help him. You might also want to contact Focus On The Family who could refer you to someone locally.

        1. Raskisha, I am so sorry for what you are going through. The focus of our Peanut program is to introduce the kids to mission opportunities. Do you have a local pastor who could maybe refer you to someone who might be able to help you during this year.

    1. I have the same problem with my daughter an am out of options and what little sanity I have left remaining and I have asked practically begged for help from 5 churches and got no help of any sort. I guess we are to white and not on drugs and from this country so we are qualified for help from no organization not even a church our home churches at that! Just a single Mom trying to survive on my own and no support of any kind… What am I to do?? I am married to satan and I am tired of his abuse and lies..!!! There’s no way out of hell till I’m dead and even that ain’t promising…

  11. I have a almost 7 year old boy that don’t listen in school or at home. I can’t handle him anymore. Im going have a heart attack at 24 years old with him. Do you have something in michigan

          1. If your website wasn’t so misleading, maybe you wouldn’t have to respond to dozens of parents with the same answer.
            These are parents seeking true assistance for their kids. Hence why I’m looking on here as well! your website is a falsified distraction!

          2. Monica, I am sorry you feel our website is misleading—that is not our intention. We have been using the “Boot Camp” name for our training since the 1970’s which is years before “Boot Camp” meant a camp for discipline issues. There is a clear description of the program if you click under “Go” and under the “kids camp”. It describes that we want to introduce the kids to missions. We do have classes on several topics, including the usual issues that this age group may face. Unfortunately, I think many are seeing the words “Boot Camp” and are assuming it is a discipline camp. However, we have been known by our “Boot Camp” training since the 1970’s.

  12. I have a 7 almost 8 yr old son and he is so disrespectful and treats me terrible never listens or follows rules

          1. Trina, I am sorry your son is having behavior issues. The purpose of our training is to expose the children to missions. Is there a pastor you could speak with who may be able to refer you to an agency that can help you with these behavior issues?

    1. Did you find somewhere? I have the same issue with my almost 8 year old son. he is so rude and disrespectful and I do so much to make him happy…I was wondering if you found somewhere that made a difference? Good luck…I find it exhausting

    2. We are in the same situation with our 8 year old girl! We need help she never listens and is breaking a rule every day and lying and she knows it’s wrong and won’t stop!!! What can I do?? She is in counseling weekly and is not working

    1. Debra, I am sorry for your son’s bad behavior. You can register him for the Peanut program, but we are not a discipline type Boot Camp. We are exposing children to mission opportunities.

    1. Michele, As stated on our website:

      The Peanut kids camp is a blend of Bible training and actual missions experience. 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.

  26. Hello there. Im having problems with my 8 year old daughter. Fallowing directions. Listening to others when being spoke to. Lieing about things. Stealing money out of my wallet. And keeping her hands to herself. Ive tried everything in the book including spankings and groundments where she cannot play outside. Watch tv or play on her tablet. And chores like dishes etc. .. Im afraid its not getting through to her properly. And i feel as if she is challenging me. And my parenting abilities. I feel like im a bad mother sometimes. And i dont know what else there is to do besides have some one else pump the fear of god into her heart. Can you please help me. I dont want my child to end up on these streets locked up in prison like her father or dead like my friends.

    1. Carla, We have the Peanut program for children of that age. It is not a Boot Camp for those with discipline problems. We are a ministry that introduces these children to mission opportunities. Perhaps you could contact a local church for help with your child.
