North Scottsdale United Methodist Church invites children to compassion day camp. This camp adventure will be held Monday-Friday, June 12 - 16, 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at the church. It is open to all children in preschool through fifth grade (ages 4-12). The fee is $70 per child for the full week program.
Compassion Day Camp is a week-long program that will focus on developing compassion, empathy, and connection with the natural world. Through a combination of fun songs, games, crafts, activities, snacks, lessons, and reflection time, children will explore what living things need to survive, including shelter, food, water, air, and community. They will also learn how to become co-sustainers and participants in creation. This program will help children develop important skills like gratitude, wonderment, and reciprocity.
In today’s fast-paced, overstimulating world, it can be hard for children to connect with the world around them and develop empathy. The goal of Compassion Camp is to teach children to be understanding, empathetic, and loving towards one another and their environment.
Additionally, the curch will celebrate the campers and their newly acquired skills during the 10 a.m. worship service on Sunday, June 18.
Campers will enjoy a special activity, see videos of their camping week and share the songs that they learned with the congregation.
