Histon Holiday Club 

 

Dates: 26-28th July 2022

Times: Morning 10-12.30

Location: At Histon Baptist Church


For all children currently at Infant or Junior School and is advertised in the local schools during the summer term.

The Churches Together in Histon and Impington are delighted and excited to announce that we will be running a Holiday Club  for three days from July 26-28, 10am-12.30pm.  ?Our theme this year is ‘Catastrophe Castle’.

The action is set in a Fairytale land where a group of unlikely dragon-slayers are on a journey to Catastrophe Castle, to try their hand at slaying the fearsome dragon who has put the King under a sleeping spell and locked him in a tower. Our three heroes are all misfits - there’s Oopsy-Daisy who’s super clumsy…Grumpy Gordon - half human, half donkey and H8PO, an alien robot from Planet Sci-fi. Our heroes have never felt like they’ve fitted in, but as they journey together through the Fairytale Kingdom, they meet some interesting characters and work together to save the day.

Every day the characters, along with the children, will hear true stories from the Bible about people who didn’t fit in either and they’ll be learning about how Jesus loved them, welcomed them and restored them to society. We hope to share with the children the amazing truth that there is a real Kingdom - God’s Kingdom - where everyone is loved and welcomed, where no-one gets left out.

There will be Bible stories, singing, drama, games, messy challenges, crafts, chill out times and some more Wonky-Donkey Olympics! It’s a safe place to be with friends and to make new ones, to try some new activities and some you already enjoy. We aim to make Holiday Club as inclusive as possible to all children including those with special needs.
