Customer Reviews for Standard Publishing Around the World Camp

Standard Publishing Around the World Camp

Kids learn about a different country during each session as they make a human pyramid; see the leaning tower of pizza; and enjoy 6-foot burritos, gondola races, and mimes. This non - dated curriculum includes 12 lessons for children in Grades 1 - 6. Every session includes material for large group time, rotation activities, small group enrichment, plus Bible challenges and more fun activities. Just add your own high-energy worship where you choose your own songs and you can use CAMP almost anytime-Sunday evening, Sunday morning, midweek, VBS or day camps, weekend retreats, special events-and can be adapted to fit any size church.

The dustjacket description starts with these words: "Every session includes HIGH-ENERGY WORSHIP..." with the word worship in bold oversized print. While the program is definitely high-energy, I'm not sure that I would emphasize the word "worship."
The program is very heavy on recreation, crafts, games, and snacks, but it is rather weak in the area of worship. In fact, with the exception of a memory verse, the worship sessions consist of singing two songs (not included) and then playing a silly game. That's it.
Also, do not expect to find any music, videos, or other interactive helps. The CD only includes printable files.
The product has some really fun and creative ideas, but I'm not sure how well it helps "kids develop an intimate relationship with God." That is the part you will have to adapt to this program for yourself.
