St. Charles Summer Camp, a curriculum-based program providing 30 hours of religious education, was held in the St. Charles School building from July 11 - July 22, 2011. A record number of 269 children, grades Kindergarten through 8, brought life, energy and enthusiasm to our community. St. Charles Summer Camp boasts a full staff of catechists - most of whom are professional educators- as well as hard-working assistant catechists. The theme this year - Prayer in My Pocket- was carried through all activities, reminding the children to pray anytime, anyplace. The children shared prayer together in the gym, enjoyed snack time and even had periods of art and music in addition to the religious ed. The 2 weeks culminated in a wonderful prayer service on Friday, July 22 in our church, led by Deacon Lon Smith. Family and friends joined the children for prayer, scripture and music, music, music!!! Jim Morgan's adaptation of Bon Jovi's 'Livin on a Prayer' got everyone singing and clapping along. To view photos from camp, visit St. Charles on Flickr!
