Family Camp At Home Experience
Friday
Mar
19

March 19 @ 6:30 pm - March 21 @ 12:00 pm

While we can’t travel this year during March, we know that you still want to make special memories with your family. We would love to come alongside you to experience a fun time of connection and create special camp-like experiences with your family. “Family Camp” is traditionally a time that you set aside for the purpose of strengthening the connections within your family through fun, laughter, and healthy community living.

When you sign up for “Family Camp At Home”, you will be placed into a “Cabin” group with other families from our Southridge community. Your group will be led by a “Cabin Leader” who is excited to connect with you and help facilitate fun and engagement between families while you are each in your own homes. Families will stay connected through the Marco Polo app, sending each other videos as they engage in the family experiences throughout the weekend. There will be age-appropriate experiences for babies through to teenagers, and definitely fun for just the parents! We will provide you with suggestions of activities you can do throughout the weekend, but you will have the freedom to choose which activities will work for your family.

Surprises will be revealed throughout the weekend, but you can expect to walk together, cook and/or eat together, do minor physical exercises, be creative, and have conversations about life, family, and faith. Oh, and you’ll laugh a lot! Regardless of what you spend your time doing that weekend, the ultimate goal is to cultivate deeper connection within your family. You can adapt any activity to suit the needs of YOUR family.

We will kick things off on Friday night with a Sing-Along and Story-Time Zoom Event, followed by a special devotional time for Parents (after the kids are asleep). You will receive ideas of activities you might choose to engage in on Saturday, both indoors and outside. Activities will include service ideas, outdoor activites, conversation starters, and themed meal ideas. On Sunday, we’ll close off Family Camp by taking in the Sunday morning online service.

Suggestions of how to best prepare for the weekend to be able to be fully present and engaged in the experience (including a suggested shopping list of some simple supplies) will be emailed to you 5 days in advance. You will also receive emailed information in advance and throughout the weekend about your cabin group, how to set up Marco Polo and Zoom on your devices, the suggested activities, and safety and confidentiality information.

We hope you decide to create some fun memories this March by engaging in this experience with us. We can’t wait to see families strengthened and journeying together, as we remain at home doing our part to keep each other safe.
