Peanut Kids Camp (7-9 years old)

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.

Cookies, anyone? Here’s an opportunity to bless others with your delicious handiwork!

Your team will also learn to use puppets, music and Wordless Books as a way to share the Gospel. You’ll travel with your team to local police stations and fire departments, and hand out goody packages filled with your cookies. These hard workers will enjoy a song from you as well as encouragement from the Scriptures while they eat their cookies. Join us and spend this fun-filled week serving the Lord. You’ll make many new and exciting friends along the way.


Nehemiah’s Trusses

Peanut Kids Camp 2015 trusses

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, you will enjoy learning what goes into a real building project. Your team will nail together and assemble first hand the wooden trusses that will be used to cover the sidewalks 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 project time. 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 want to be a big blessing this summer, come make some memories at The Lord’s Boot Camp.
