Holiday Clubs REALLY do work.....
Fun activities that tell kids more about Jesus really do have an impact on children, the Barna group has found. Fun missions activities for children can have a significant spiritual impact on those who attend, a survey by the Barna group has shown. The US group surveyed thousands of children who attended 'SuperKids', one and two week outreach missions run by Scripture Union USA during the summer of 2010.
It found that as a result of the programme, 85% of the children who took part felt more loved by God and that over 80% said they learned new things about God and Jesus. More than 30,000 largely at-risk children took part each day in some 90 Superkids outreach missions held in major urban centres and beach resorts across the States.

I think we can conclude that God loves holiday clubs Be blessed as you plan them, even now as you read this!
