Cool kids club for ex­plor­ers

Rutherglen Reformer - - NEWS FROM THE PEWS - Jonathan Ged­des

Young­sters at Cam­bus­lang Parish and Flem­ing­ton Hall­side churches were cool cus­tomers re­cently.

That’s be­cause the churches were hold­ing a com­bined hol­i­day club, with around 60 ea­ger kids tak­ing part.

And even though it was the first week of Au­gust, there was a frosty at­mos­phere around, as the club had a spe­cial theme of Po­lar Ex­plor­ers.

Jan Ritchie, who helps with the hol­i­day club, felt the chil­dren had a great time.

She said: “We had on av­er­age 56 young­sters each day, rang­ing from P1 to P7.

“Our arc­tic ex­plor­ers ‘ Bare­foot’ and Sir Ran­dom McFines guided the chil­dren through a week of fun, games, messy chal­lenges, and fol­low­ing the sto­ries of a num­ber of peo­ple from the New Tes­ta­ment.

“There was also the ‘ big sledge’ chal­lenge, where each group have been de­sign­ing a ‘su­per sledge’ with the win­ner be­ing cho­sen at the hol­i­day Ser­vice last Sun­day.

“The sum­mer camp also fea­tured great singing and danc­ing, not to men­tion joke time and drama.

“We had an amaz­ing num­ber of ‘Young lead­ers’ who helped in many ways all week, too, about 14 in all.”
