EWALU Day Camp

Elementary Day Camp 

for 1st-5th graders will be JULY 10-14, 2017

2017 Day Camp Registration – Please fill out thoroughly and return to the church office as soon as possible.

Water is something we use every day, but we often take it for granted. We need water to live. This summer, campers will explore water as one symbol of Christian spiritual life. Day camp kids will dive into Bible stories that shower them with awareness of God’s love for them – especially the life-giving grace God gives us through Jesus Christ. Campers at Ewalu experience and celebrate God’s grace in ways that have a lasting effect on character, empathy, and faith.

Daily Themes

Monday – From the Deep – Goodness and Gift
Tuesday – In the River – Birth and Belonging
Wednesday – At the Well – Enough for Everyone
Thursday – In the Pool – Seeing and Being the Light
Friday – By Still Waters – Resting in God
