A day camp will be hosted this month in Etna for area elementary school children to explore “God and His World.”

The camp will be hosted at Emmanuel Lutheran Church at Grant and Highland avenues.

It is July 29 to Aug. 2. Cost is $10.

Along with traditional activities like Bible stories and songs, there will be lessons geared toward science, art and robotics.

“Each day, we’ll open with a Bible story and follow it with group activities that demonstrate simple machines, engineering and other scientific principles,” the Rev. JJ Lynn, pastor, said.

“Children will gain an appreciation for the orderly world that God created for us to live in.”

Lunch will be served each day. Other activities include crafts, theater and martial arts.

Camp will conclude on Aug. 2 with families invited for a free dinner and an opportunity to see the week’s accomplishments, Lynn said.

This is the second year the church has hosted the Christian day camp. About two dozen campers attended in 2018.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
