Peanut Kids Camp Program Description
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.
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.

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 making Wordless Books and Bracelets for use in evangelism. Provided by Teen Missions Provided to 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. Included in the involvement expense, each Peanut will receive a team poster and a DVD of their experience.
Cookie anyone? Here’s a chance to use your baking skills at Teen Missions!
Your team will also train with puppets, music and Wordless Books as a way to share the Gospel. Don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of time in the kitchen! Over 100 cookie cutters are just waiting to be used. Shape and bake to your heart’s content and use this as an opportunity to bless others with your delicious handiwork. You’ll travel with your team to local police stations and fire departments and hand out goody packages. Bless these hard workers with Scripture to read while they enjoy a cookie. Join us and spend this fun-filled week serving the Lord. You’ll make lots of new friends along the way.
Get ready to grip that hammer and nail some boards!
No matter what age you are, you can come and serve Jesus this summer. If you love to build, here’s a chance to learn what goes into a real building project. Your team will nail together wooden trusses and learn how they are assembled first hand. In fact, you will help build the sidewalk coverings here at Teen Missions. Training will be done with construction tools, as well as puppets, music and Wordless Books. You’ll have the opportunity to go out and do a presentation at a local nursing home at the end of your training. All of these skills can be used serving the Lord and as a way to bless others. If you want a fun work project and a way to be a big blessing this summer, come make some memories at The Lord’s Boot Camp.
Let’s get dirty for God this summer!
Spend a week having fun with your team as you train to pour some concrete pads. You will learn what it’s like to mix, pour and work with concrete. Teepees all around the Teen Missions base will sit on the concrete pads that you form. A lot goes into one of these projects, so get ready to put on your hard hat and work those muscles. While at The Lord’s Boot Camp, you will also train with music, puppets and Wordless Books to do a presentation at a local nursing home. Serving the Lord comes in all forms and when you go home you will feel blessed knowing you have accomplished so much. We hope to see you soon!
