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.

  1. Hello im looking for something very simialr to what you offer only I needed to be a lot closer because you are a weeks drive away and I don’t necessarily feel comfortable letting my 7-year-old be six days away from where I am for a whole week. It would be very hard to access her if there was ever an emergency. Can you help with that direction?

    1. Lauren, Thank you for your interest in our program. We will not be having the Peanut program this coming summer, but hopefully, next summer. If there were an emergency we would call you. If there was an emergency on your part, you would just call the office. Many Peanut parents come and volunteer for the time the Peanuts are here. Since she is 7, she could still attend next summer (2020).

    1. Cheyenne, We are not that type of Boot Camp. Our purpose is to introduce our team members to mission opportunities. We know you are hurting and we would love to be able to help, but that is not our focus. Please contact a local pastor who should have some local resources for you.

      1. Looking to enroll my two children in the program. Prior to June 10. Is there still availability. Whhat are the requirements. Will there be another session after June 17th.

  2. dear pastor in christ, We are ministry from india namely RUACH MINISTRIES especially we are conducting many kids seminars and camps to build the kids about our almighty.Hence we are planning a seminar in march 2017 and is it possible to send any trainer from your side? Please pray for us and be in touch with us to lift our almighty name in high.Pr.Isaac nelson india

    1. Naomi, We do not have scholarships. However, we do provide prayer cards that you can hand out at church or send to friends and family to help you raise the needed support. It would be helpful if the girls wrote a little note accompanying the prayer cards.

        1. Cassandra, Have you registered? Did you include a picture? Have you received a confirmation email that you were registered? Please call the office 321-453-0350 and ask for US/Canada Teams.

    1. Michelle, I am sorry, but we only have the Peanut program here in Florida. Perhaps you could call one of your local churches and maybe they could suggest a program that could help your son.
