Get ready to grip that hammer and nail some boards! No matter what age you are, you can come and serve Jesus this summer. If you love to build, here’s a chance to learn what goes into a real building project. Your team will nail together wooden trusses and learn how they are assembled first hand. In fact, you will help build the sidewalk coverings here at Teen Missions. Training will be done with construction tools, as well as puppets, music and Wordless Books. You’ll have the opportunity to go out and do a presentation at a local nursing home at the end of your training. All of these skills can be used serving the Lord and as a way to bless others. If you want a fun work project and a way to be a big blessing this summer, come make some memories at The Lord’s Boot Camp.

The Peanut program is a blend of training and actual mission experiences. Peanuts will learn how to share the Gospel, and they will go and do just that. Peanuts on work teams will learn how to do the work and then they will do it. Some elements of the training, such as music, puppets and the Obstacle Course—just their size with a rope swing, tunnel and wall—continue throughout the Peanut program. Peanuts will be taught about the customs and people of other lands by nationals from countries around the world, who will share about their country while dressed in national costume. There will be daily devotions, prayer, Bible memory and Scripture lessons on topics such as Neatness and Order, Talking Back, Authority, Stealing and Lying. During evening rallies under the Peanut Big Top, each team shares their cheers and singing, Miss Piggy gives cleanliness awards and the Obstacle Course results are announced. A missionary speaker will present the evening message.
Each team stays in their own tent site, two or three Peanuts to a tent. The sites are close to the bathrooms and the Peanut Big Top Tent. Peanut teams eat together. The day begins around 6 AM and the rallies end at 8 PM. At least one fun craft or activity is planned each day; these activities include swimming in the pool, making hand puppets, coloring, block printing t-shirts (the same way they’ve done in India for centuries) and using Wordless Books and Bracelets to practice evangelism.
