1, 2, 3...Akita!

What is 1, 2, 3...Akita?

1, 2, 3…Akita! provides faith-based summer fun and an outdoor adventure for children who will be going into 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade in the Fall of 2021.

The first two days are spent exploring ideas about God through play, song, activities, and craft led by the amazing K-5 staff. On the third day, our campers will travel to Camp Akita by bus to have fun with our summer camp counselors. Bring a swimsuit, because we plan to be outside with lots of messy and wet games!

At Camp Akita we will have guided tours, crafts, games, and lake activities. Lunch will be provided for our campers. We hope this will be a great opportunity for our youngest campers to become comfortable and confident at Camp Akita.
