Do you like to do puzzles? Would you like to build something for Jesus this summer? At the Lord’s Boot Camp you will be trained how to put trusses together that will be used to make covered sidewalks on the Teen Missions property. The wood will already be cut and you will put the pieces in a jig (pattern) and nail them together.
Other training will include how to share the love of Jesus through music, puppets and Wordless Books. Your team will use these skills to bless residents at a local nursing home. At the end of your project time, you can take home memories of friends, fun and a finished work project.

Peanut General Information
You needto be 7, 8 or 9 years old to be part of the Peanut program. You must turn 7 before the program ends. You cannot turn 10 before or during the program.
Length of Involvement
Sunday, June 17 – Sunday, June 24. If coming by plane, you must arrive between 8 AM and 5 PM on Saturday, June 16. Teen Missions will pick up team members at the Orlando International Airport. If driving, you must arrive between 8 and 10 AM on Sunday, June 17. The program ends after Commissioning on Sunday, June 24. Parents should plan to pick their children up at that time. Children flying home from Orlando Inter- national Airport should depart after 9 AM and before 12 NOON on Monday, June 25.
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.
