HTCS Summer Camp
Week three of Holy Trinity Summer Camp was exploding with fun!! The theme was “Mad Scientist Week,” which revolved around Psalm 111:2 - “Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them.” The campers learned about some of the world’s most incredible scientists who studied what the Lord has given to the Earth! The week was packed with science experiments such as growing beans in a bag, mixing vinegar and eggs, soaking white flowers in colored water, making crystals with epsom salt and water, searching through owl pellets, mixing Coke and Mentos, and so much more!! Campers collected items on a nature walk and got a closer look of them under a magnifying glass. A crowd favorite was the germ experiment that used a blacklight to show just how many germs were on their hands and helped teach the importance of hand washing.
Another successful week at HTCS summer camp Under the Sea! This week was centered around the verse: “God created the creatures of the sea…and He said it was good.” (Genesis 1:21) We had fun discovering life that God created under the sea while making paper plate crabs and fish, colorful sea horses, fun sea stars, and origami sharks. Campers used oil, water, and glitter to make their own water bottle aquariums, and also experimented with some shaving cream fun. They had delicious nautical snacks and even got to decorate their own rice crispy beach balls on Friday!
The theme for week one of camp was Superheroes. It centered around the Bible verse, “I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me.” (Phil 4:13). Campers learned about the superheroes we encounter in our everyday lives, such as firefighters, policemen, and healthcare workers. They unleashed their inner creativity by making cityscapes with superheroes and designing their own superhero masks. They also experimented with homemade slime and made their own parachutes out of coffee filters and cups. In the midst of all the fun, the campers learned about the importance of giving back to the community. They prepared 100 bag lunches for Kings Kitchen to distribute to the homeless in our community. The campers also made cards for Dunbar Village. To end the week, the group visited Ruth’s Roots to enjoy some outdoor fun in the beautiful weather with intentions of donating to the garden in the future.
