Welcome to Compassion Camp Virtual At-Home Vacation Church Camp SignUps!
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, First Parish Congregational Church is excited to offer this At-Home/Virtual Vacation Church Camp geared toward both preschool-aged children and K-5th graders where kids and families explore what it means to have compassion for others, ourselves, and the world.
Similar to past Vacation Church Camp programs, Compassion Camp will feature a musical opening, entertaining bible story, a fun mix of crafts and games to practice our compassion skills, physical engagement to connect our minds, bodies and spirits with God. Next, our Compassion in Action activities help campers think creatively and act tangibly about sharing our love and compassion followed by a prayerful and musical wrap-up!
We are extremely excited to share this new format with everyone! For your convenience, sessions will be pre-recorded weekly for five weeks and be available on or before the following dates: 7/7, 7/14, 7/21, 7/28, 8/4. All updates and links to the videos and materials will be e-mailed to everyone who signs up, so it is very important that we receive an e-mail that you check often. When coming to pick up materials on either Thursday, July 2nd or Friday, July 3rd between the hours of 10 - 12 at First Parish Congregational Church at 47 East Derry Road, East Derry, NH 03038, please stay in your vehicles and your materials will be brought out to you safely. If you are not able to pick up your materials during these hours, please contact Christine Lehoullier to schedule an alternate pickup time at [email protected] or 603-264-9261 or the front office at [email protected]/603-434-0628. When signing up your camper, simply indicate whether you'd prefer Thursday or Friday pickup next to their name.
We look forward to thinking big and getting creative about Compassion this summer with all of you!
