Breakthrough is a five-week summer camp designed to engage young minds, strengthen academic skills and form cross-cultural friendships. Exciting weekly themes will be explored through a variety of activities designed to improve competency in reading, writing and STEM (science, technology, engineering, math). Our classes are culturally diverse on purpose to increase awareness and understanding of cultures that are different from our own. Each grade level is taught by an experienced teacher who works alongside other classroom staff to help each student succeed, providing opportunities to develop decision-making skills, cooperate with others, choose positive behavior, and learn other life lessons. On Friday, kids will enjoy a VBS program led by FBW's student ministry filled with all the things kids love, games, crafts, stories and music. VBS is open to all kids Kindergarten through grade 5, not just those attending camp Monday—Thursday.
