AWANA CLUBS | WEDNESDAYS at 6:30pm

Glenkirk AWANA is a perfect place for kids to become who God created them to be. AWANA is a midweek program for children 3 years old, up to 5th grade. It is a great way for kids to be able to connect, have fun, and learn more about Jesus and how to show His love. For questions, please contact Amber at AFlores@GlenkirkChurch.org.

Full calendar of 2021-2022 AWANA (CLICK TO ENLARGE):

AWANA Clubs will take place in person on Glenkirk’s campus once again this year. We will begin on Wednesday, September 8th! We will be continuing to follow all COVID regulations put in place by LA County, which currently includes a face mask requirement for everyone ages 2 years old and up, regardless of vaccination status. 

AWANA is a midweek program for children 3 years old-TK, and Kindergarten-5th grade. Please see below for more information on each specific age level:

Cubbies (3-4 year olds, and Transitional Kindergarten): Meeting Wednesdays from 6:30pm-7:30pm

Cubbies will be lead through a fun lesson, engaging puppet show, worship time together, and small group time with activities to emphasize the memory verse of the night. Our Cubbies leaders are excited to engage with these kiddos each week.

Sparks (Kindergarten-2nd grade) and T&T (3rd-4th grade): Meeting Wednesdays from 6:30pm-8:00pm

Sparks and T&T will focus on verse memorization through age-appropriate handbooks that each clubber will be given. Children will have fun memorizing scripture, playing games, listening to a lesson, and worshipping together each week! As they learn and memorize scripture and move through their handbooks, they will have opportunities to earn awards by completing sections and reaching milestones. 

Trek (5th Grade): Meeting Wednesdays from 6:30pm-8:00pm

5th graders will be able to participate in a more age-specific curriculum through AWANA called “Trek”. They will get to interact as a group more structured like a small group that will help to prepare them for moving up into Middle School after the year is done. They will still get to participate in games and fun with the other children as well.


AWANA bags are available for clubbers to purchase all year long! These bags are great to help clubbers carry their books, Bible, and other supplies to and from club each week.

Have you lost your book, vest, or anything else AWANA related? New items may be purchased by clicking on the vest picture. Children will be given them at handbook time one week after if we have it in stock.

CURRICULUM

We currently feature Lifeway’s Gospel Project!

Show Kids the Big Picture of God’s Story – The Gospel Project® for Kids immerses kids in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project® for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.

Elementary Winter Camp 2022 | January 7-9

Elementary campers spend a weekend at Forest Home for a time of worship, fellowship, and adventure. The cost is just $195 per camper. 
 
 
 
How do I know my child is ready for camp?

They’re Showing Interest

Sometimes it’s best to let your kids judge when the timing is right. If they start to show interest in camp or ask for permission to go, it’s a strong sign that they are ready to pack their bags and head off for a weekend or week of fun.

 

They’ve Slept Away from Home

Making the decision to send your child away overnight can be worrisome for parents. However, if they’ve spent the night away from home or even extended periods of time with grandparents, aunts or uncles, then camp should not be a problem! This is not a requirement, however we do find children who have slept away from home before handle camp better.

 

They Can Bathe on Their Own

Heading off to sleep-away camp means parents are not around to help with bed time and bath time routines. As we are happy to remind your child and strongly encourage them, camp is really a time for becoming self-reliant. Being able to shower or bathe and brush their teeth on their own is often a good indicator that your little adventurers are self-reliant and ready to rough it at camp!

 

They Can Follow Instructions

There will be counselors and other grown-ups leading the show at your kids’ camp, and they need to be able to follow the instructions. If your kids listen well at home and demonstrate the proper behavior and rule-following on sports teams or at school, that is a good sign they are ready for camp!

 

YOU Are Ready to Let Them Go

Your child may be jumping for joy at the thought of spending a week or more with friends old and new, but ultimately, you as the parent have to be ready to let them go. But if you just don’t feel comfortable or have an inkling that it’s just not the time, then listen to yourself!

 

The bottom line is everyone is ready for camp at different ages, so trust your instinct and if you feel that it’s time for your child to have an amazing time at camp. Sign them on up! 


Drivers to camp are always needed. Must be a Glenkirk attender, pass a background check, and provide license and insurance information. CLICK HERE to email us about becoming a camp driver.
