Outreach: Basketball Camp

We hold a free 13-station basketball camp for kindergartners through sixth-graders from our church and community. We ask basketball players from high schools and junior colleges to help out with the camp and run 12 of the stations. At each station, kids learn the basics of the sport, including dribbling, passing, and shooting. At the last station, we lead a devotion and give kids the opportunity to make a commitment to Christ.

The camp lasts about four hours, and the church provides lunch for the kids. For parents bringing their kids and staying, we give tours of our church and tell about our children's ministry program. We have several stores get involved by donating money or letting us use lighted display signs or other items.

It takes a lot of volunteers, but it's a great way to reach out to the community. Last year we had around 200 participants, and several kids dedicated their lives to Christ.
