C24/7: Father's Arms Ministries holds students in our arms and helps them combat fear, hunger, and academic loss throughout the summer. We do this by hosting:
1. Summer Day-Camp
During the month of July we provide a meal, Bible Study, and fun activity 2 days a week for 3 hours each day. Some of the fun activities we host include: picnics at the beach, "Minute To Win It" games, cooking, swimming in the lake, and arts and crafts.
2. Summer Reading Program
Through this program we assign each student a book according to their specific reading level and unique interests, and provide a safe and quiet environment each program day for them to engage in quiet reading or reading aloud to an adult.
3. Summer Retreat to Covenant Harbor (Lake Geneva, WI)
In 2017 we had the great opportunity to travel with 13 of our students to attend a three-day camp on Lake Geneva. Getting our kids away from the city provides them an opportunity to free themselves from the worry and responsibilities many of them hold while back home. We were able to participate in water sports, a low ropes course, mountain boarding, rock climbing, bonfires, a boat ride, and buffet style meals (which was a real treat to our students!). This year we hope to bring even more students!
