While this Summer may be different than how we anticipated it would be, we are happy to share that KidsMania will be hosting in person small groups for kids during Summer 2020. In order to ensure the safety of your kids and our staff we will be limiting the groups to 15 children each. This allows us to limit any potential spread of the virus. The groups will be divided by grade (the grade your child will enter in the fall) and become a sort of cohort. Each group will meet once a week for six weeks (July 12 - August 21), and work through a fun video series or book, catered to their age group. Each week will have dscussions, crafts, and games! There will be a $10/kid (max $35/family) fee to cover the cost of supplies. Below you will find information about the specific groups and how to register.
Story Seekers (Kindergarten to Grade 2)
This group will watch a fun video series called The Jesus Stories (found on Right Now Media). These videos take Jesus' Parables and bring them to life in a way that is relatable for kids. Each week we will watch an episode, play games, and make a craft to tie it all together! This group will meet from 2:00PM to 3:00PM on Tuesdays.
Blast From the Past (Grade 3 to Grade 4)
In this small group we will read The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls (book 1), an exciting book that follows a brother and sister as they travel back in time, right into the Bible. These books will be provided by Devon Community Church. When we meet together as a group we will discuss the adventures encountered in the book, make crafts, and play games. This will require some at home reading to be done by your child, or with your help. For more information on this book click here. This group willl meet from 2:00PM to 3:00PM on Wednesdays.
Summer Voyagers (Grade 5 to Grade 6)
This group will read the about remarkable adventures in Little Pilgrim's Progress, a children's adaptation of John Bunyans classic novel. These books will be provided by Devon Community Church. Each week we will meet to talk about our reading, play games, and make crafts/try experiments together. This will require some at home reading to be done by your child, or with your help. For more information on this book click here. This group will meet from 2:00PM to 3:30PM on Thursdays.
