UUFHC is proud to offer a great Summer Program for kids entering Kindergarten through 5th Grade!
Come learn about a different country every day! Kindergarten-5th Grade students will learn how children live in other countries: the games they play, the songs they sing, the food they eat, and the languages they speak.
Each morning will begin with a few clues and then we will reveal the day's country. A guest speaker will join us to tell about the country. Then we will celebrate a popular holiday from that culture and make a craft. There will be story time with a book about the mystery country. We will snack on some regional food and play a game that's popular with the children of that culture. At the end of each day, the campers will put stickers and fun facts they have learned in their
passports, which they can take home at the end of the week.
We allow the volunteers to choose when they're willing to come in so we have a few weeks of classes led by congregants who teach the children about their favorite activities, like, coin collecting, gardening, zentangling, and Yoga. During other weeks, we have a summer-long social justice project. We have a guest speaker and then spend the summer collecting and creating things that will help that group. So one year, we met with the outreach coordinator of the humane society. The kids collected old towels and food for the animals, made toys, and then loaded these things into the coordinator's car at the end of the summer. A job well done.
