Sweet Home Camp Akita 1,2,3...Akita! Package

1,2,3...Akita! Package

Camp Akita is an integral part of First Community. 1,2,3...Akita! is a way for children going into first, second, and third grades to get their first Camp Akita experience. Each summer, campers and the K-5 team explore the culture of one of the countries where First Community has a mission connection. This is a time for our youngest Akita campers to learn about how kids in other parts of the world live while developing relationships with other campers and camp leaders.

This year, campers will experience "Mission to India," where we will explore Indian culture through movement, games, crafts, music and food. Each day will consist of live online sessions, videos, a Zoom chat with your Counselors and cabin group, a dance party, and extra lesson videos that can be explored independently. Participants will receive a packet of materials to support the activities, a Camp Akita t-shirt, and yard sign.
