Godly Play Summer Camp
Wondering with the Christian Story throughMovement, Art and Community
Saint James offers a week-long summer camp for children (pre-K through 5th grade) that provides a contemplative atmosphere to nurture children’s spirituality and to cultivate empathy.
Godly Play’s innovative model creates the daily rhythm for wondering together in the community of children. During camp week, children hear sacred stories, create art, move, explore prayer practices, and learn peacemaking skills.
Professionally trained adults in the fields of spirituality and peace building lead and guide the camp week, drawing from their rich experiences, refined knowledge and deep faith. This exciting summer camp welcomes children from our parish, our diocese and the greater community to spend a week on Saint James’ beautiful historic campus. The sacred space of camp week fosters children’s developing spirituality, whatever their beliefs may be.
The camp typically takes place in the month of August from 8:45 AM to noon each day. Saint James follows state and diocesan requirements for the protection of children and youth.
