Apr 26 @ 9:30 am – 3:30 pm

Sparks Camp-a-Rama is a day camp for Second Grade Sparkies who are graduating into the Truth and Training Club next year in Awana.  The only requirement is that they should have finished a book in their Sparks career at your church.  You only need to provide one leader for every 5 Sparks that you bring to the Camp.  The day starts at 9:30 AM and is over at 3:30 PM.  We consider this a Celebration of their time in Sparks and a Welcome to their time in T&T.

The Adults and Sparkies will receive a special T-Shirt, do a craft, play games, go on a hike and many other exciting activities during the day! Lunch and snacks will be provided throughout the day. We will also honor all Sparky Award winners!
