I was horrified to just discover that, whereas, our new Tab is up on the Blog, this post, which was intended to be published at the same time, was still in the “Drafts”. So here it is REALLY late!!!

 The Parents and Families Tab-

    Welcome to the new Tab on the Day Camps
Blog!

  This new tab has been set up in the hopes of providing
resources to the parents and families of our Day Camp Campers. Crosstalk
Ministries is not only interested in the lives of these children during the
week they attend Day Camp, but also throughout the year and so we are hoping to
build up a reserve of ideas to which you can turn for use at home, and in your
church community.

   At the close of Day Camps our Team Leaders
give the Clergy and Coordinator a copy of our Follow up Brochure, perhaps
parents and families do not know about this document? It offers a variety of
ideas by which the wider Church Family can offer child inclusive worship and
fellowship throughout the year. A copy of this brochure is now available here
on this Tab. If you are a parent of family member who is already active in your
church community, we hope you will encourage those in leadership to consider
including some of these suggestions in your church calendar.

  Secondly this Tab offer a brand new concept
in Day Camp follow up- the

Follow
the Leader eBook!! This book has been prepared in pdf format to be downloaded
and printed on a home printer and includes the five stories enjoyed by Day
Campers this past Summer.

  The committee would like to thank a member,
Anna Irish for her extra work in preparing this book and we hope you will
decide to access it and give it to your children.

  What is planned for the future? Well we would
like to include other resources for good home-based Christian activities. We
plan to add everything from recipes for a good play dough to ideas for
celebrating Advent in the home.

  Form time to time the regular weekly Blog
posts will flag that a new idea has been added to the Tab and we hope you will
make a point of checking it out.

   We also invite comments; suggestions and
content (to be included at the discretion of the Day Camp Committee) so if you
have a valuable idea to share please do send it to us –office@crosstalkministries.ca

   There
is a real interest among families for good Bible-based home activities, here is
a platform where CTM can respond by carrying out our Mission: –

People of All Ages to Become Strong Disciples of Jesus Christ”
