Currently, the LRC offers two after school programs in two neighbourhoods. The after school programs, one called Campsite and the other called Kids Connection, are a great way to build relationships with the kids who live there. The program offers snacks, crafts, games, and the sharing of simple biblical truths.
Boullee Street – We’ve been connected with this neighbourhood for many years and have run an after school program for the kids, called Campsite. In February 2017, a collaboration with Knollwood Baptist Church began, and we moved the program to their building and are working together to be a positive influence in the kids lives. This programs runs on Thursdays from 3:30-5:00pm.
1750 Huron Street – Kid’s Connection began in September 2016, and it’s been a thrill building relationships with kids and their families in this neighbourhood. This program runs on Mondays from 3:30-5:00pm.
Kids Day Camp – This summer we are offering a wide variety of camps to kids (grades 1-6). All camps are free and run from 9:00am-noon. Camps are such an amazing opportunity to spend a significant portion of time with the kids, and share who Jesus is with them. If your child is interested in participating in camp, or you want to get involved in some capacity, email email@example.com.
LIT – NEW this year! We are offering a Leader-In-Training program for students going into grades 7-12. These students will participate in the leading of the kids camps in the morning, and then the team will do some team building, and leadership and spiritual development in the afternoons. To start and finish off the week, there will be times for the team to just simply have fun and continue the relationship growth. Do I dare mention pizza and pools? If you’re interested in getting involved with this new initiative, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every Thursday night from 7:00-8:30pm, in the Boullee neighbourhood, we host a Boys and Girls night in parallel for youth ages 10-14. The boys typically play outdoor games like manhunt, before going inside for things like building competitions. The girls are in one of the homes of our leaders who live in the neighbourhood, and they do things like baking and crafts, and talk about stories from the Bible. Often this age group is missed, so we wanted to provide them with an opportunity to stay connected.
