The Children’s Corner

Children are love, valued, treasured, adored, celebrated… let’s see, how else can we say it? We love kids at Custer Road UMC! And this blog is the space where you can find out the latest going on with our children’s ministry. We hope you’ll check in often!

  • Summertime Fun at Camp Bridgeport!

    It is freezing outside and we are thinking about the warmth of summer and all the fun we’re going to have in the sun at Bridgeport!

    We want all of our favorite third through fifth grade students to join us this summer for these awesome weeks at Camp Bridgeport! Church camp is something that every child should experience. There is nothing that compares to connecting with God through nature and fellowship in an environment that encourages the campers to make their faith their own, build confidence, and nurture friendships. I can’t recommend the experience enough and hope that you all will prayerfully consider joining us! Custer Road will have volunteers attending 2 sessions. Pick one or pick both- each will offer a unique and powerful experience! Adult and college aged volunteers are needed to help make the week a success. Contact Heather for more info!

    Music Camp | June 5-9: Enjoy all the fun of camp while singing and making music! Music camp is great for your campers interested in making music and performing for their families at the end of the week. During their camp experience, campers will have choir rehearsals, plus an opportunity for a special interest group, which could include handbells/chimes, human video, recorders and more! The campers get to choose one special interest group for the week. PLUS there are daily rounds at the pool, fun evening activities, talent show, crafts, worship and more, all in the beautiful 200 acres on the shores of Lake Bridgeport. Camp concludes on June 9th with a concert for family and friends. Children’s Music & Arts Camp is fun, musically rewarding and spiritually enriching. It is a smaller camp, with maximum enrollment of 60 campers, which allows the campers to form great bonds together as they grow in their faith walk. No prior music experience is necessary! All that is required is a love of music and a willing heart! This unique week of camp would be great by itself or in addition to C3. Gospel Gang choir teachers Ms. Scottie and Ms. Karen will help lead campers in making a joyful noise to God while experiencing all of the fun that Bridgeport has to offer!

    C3 – Camp Bridgeport | July 9-13: A week at Camp Bridgeport is a week like no other! Campers will enjoy swimming, games, small group Bible Study, and lots of fun special activities. Some favorites include interest groups (archery, fishing, dancing, crafts, spa, and many, many more!), the infamous shaving cream war, and annual lip sync battle. Campers will sleep in cabins with their Custer Road Friends and Leaders. Ms. Heather and Ms. Lauren can’t wait to spend another week at camp and we have some AWESOME dads that are planning to join as well. Your kiddos will be well taken care of and loved on all week!
