Softball

Through the course of the summer, teams from each of the churches compete against one another.

Workshops focus on relationship building with babies and toddlers, food and nutrition, etc. Workshops are typically held on Saturday mornings.

VBS: Trail Mix Day Camp

Trail Mix is a summer day camp that is held during the month of June. Each year the camp has a different theme. The camp is run by enthusiastic leaders and students to provide a fun and welcoming environment for children and volunteers. During the camp, children have fun, go on field trips around the city and learn a variety of things.

Many of the children and youth have developed great relationships and look forward to returning each year.

Scouts

Every Thursday night the 1st Rouge Valley Scout (ages 11-14) and Beaver (ages 8-10) groups meet at the church. The accredited leaders and volunteers provide a safe and fun environment for the youth.

During this time the children play games, learn survival skills, and develop leadership. With the church neighbouring the Rouge Valley, the group has many opportunities to practice what they’ve learned! The group also goes offsite for camping trips, archery, ropes courses, and many other fun things.
