Crossover Week – July 9-13, 2018
Afternoon events taking place after VBS program
For students going into grades 6-9

Each day after VBS (July 9-13) we run Crossover events for those going into Grades 6-9 to help students "cross over" from kids ministry to preteens, and from preteens to youth! This week-long afternoon program is FREE! Just be sure to bring your signed waiver, lunch, and any other needed supplies with you.

Crossover begins each day right after VBS is done, but is a separate program. It runs until 3:00 pm each day (except beach day, which is until 5pm). This program is open to those who attend or volunteer for VBS, and also for those who don't! As long as you are going into grades 6-9, you are welcome to join us.

Students who attend Bethany and are going into Grades 10-12 can register as teen volunteers for Crossover events. This volunteer position includes food preparation, leading or preparing games, etc. You will still need a Summer Event Waiver as you will be able to participate in many of the activities that don't require active leadership (e.g. beach day, Paint Wars, etc.).

What happens during Crossover Week?

Monday, July 9 – Hot Dog Lunch & Icebreaker Gross Games!
Hang out with your friends and make some new ones with games designed to help us get to know each other better! Lunch provided this day only (hot dogs, juice, chips and veggies). Bring: a signed Consent Waiver if you did not hand one in during the school year, and a change of clothes; Gross games are messy! Pick up time is 3 pm.

Please note - Today only is 5:00 pm pick up.

Thursday, July 12 – Paint Wars!!!
Join us for a wacky afternoon of paint-based games at McLean Park! We use tempera paints that do wash out of hair and skin, but bring some old clothes (dark clothing works too) and a WHITE SHIRT that can get colourful. Paints generally wash out of clothing but may leave some residue depending on the fabric. Parents, we will hose your kids off outside before they go inside to change into a clean outfit to wear home. Bring: lunch, old shoes/shorts, WHITE SHIRT, towel, change of clothes, water and sunscreen. We provide plastic bags to take home wet/colourful clothing.

Friday July 13 – Wrap-up Movie Day
Bring your lunch and watch a movie together. Concession will be open, so bring some change to get some candy AND support our Compassion Child, Mukire. We will be showing the movie “Wonder”.  Bring your lunch. Pick up at 3 pm.
