Smiley Face

Kids Camp


Get Dirty for God this summer as you help beautify the front entrance of the Teen Missions headquarters. The large Smiley Face says, “Smile, Jesus Loves You” and it is a great reminder for all those who drive by daily.  Training at the Lord’s Boot Camp will include instructions in landscaping skills like digging and planting flowers of various kinds.  As you use these skills, make sure you keep an eye out for the abundant wildlife—birds, frogs, turtles and lizards that roam around the property! After completing classes in music, puppets and the Wordless Book, your team will then have the opportunity to share the Gospel in local nursing homes and ministries. You will be excited to tell your family all about the work you did and the Bible verses and stories you learned.

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 prog

ram ends. You cannot turn 10 before or during the pro



Length of Involvement


Saturday, June 15 – Saturday, June 22. If coming by plane, you must arrive between 8 AM and 5 PM on Friday, June 14. Teen Missions will pick up team members at the Orlando International Airport. If driving, you must arrive between 8 and 10 AM on Saturday, June 15. The program ends after Commissioning on Saturday, June 22. Parents should plan to pick their children up at that time. Children flying home from Orlando International Airport (airport code MCO) should depart after 9 AM and before 12 NOON on Sunday, June 23.


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.
