How does it all work?
This week is specifically designed to help your child connect and build relationships with their peers while learning more about who God designed them to be. Each day the message is brought to life through dynamic drama elements that directly connect to Biblical stories that help kids realize God's plan for their life. Students also have the chance to learn more about their gifts, talents, and abilities through the elective of their choice. These electives will teach kids how to us their God-given passions to glorify his name. 

Electives—Each student will choose one elective for the entire week.

Design It: This exciting hands on class will give kids the  chance to learn design elements around fashion, jewelry, and merchandise while learning how to present their designs. 

Explore It: No matter if it’s indoor, outdoor, or in the lab, science enthusiasts will enjoy hands on experiences that will change the way they see the world around them!

Play It: All sports fans will find this the elective to keep them moving! Students will learn how to compete and properly participate in team related sports of all types. 

Perform It: Combining gymnastics and cheer while incorporating elements of stomp and production, this class is sure to bring music to life!

Create It: Draw, paint, and sculpt your expression to life! This class is a hands on art experience. 

Act It: Act it out while learning how to create great videos! 

Sing It: Join the choir as they build a memorable worship experience that will last a lifetime!

All elective choices are final. There is no guarantee that your child will be with their friends even if they choose the same elective. We work hard to intentionally connect all kids that come to Camp NXT Kids. So, no matter who is in class with them, we promise they will make new friends and still have plenty of chances to connect with existing friends. 

How much does it cost?
Early Registration is $125, if registered by June 25.
Late Registration is $155, if registered by July 16.
Registration closes July 16 at 11:59 p.m. 

Early registration is strongly suggested! We will do our best to accommodate as many kids as we possibly can for each elective. However, various electives have a definite limit to the amount of kids who can participate at a time. All electives are subject to closure during registration. 

If my child can only attend a couple of days, does the price change? Due to the planning and purchasing of supplies, all registration is calculated for the entire week. There is no discount for children who are unable to attend sessions during the week.
