Schoolz Out Days

This event is designed to be a fun way for kids to get to know each other and members of my leadership team. The event runs from 8:30-4:30 on Tuesday-Thursday, and it happens the first full week that kids are out of school.
This year for day 1 we created our own "waterpark" here at the church with slides and squirt guns. It was a huge success and the kids came back on day 2 ready for more fun. On Day 2 we took the kids to a place called Main Event. It is an arcade/bowling/laser tag facility that the kids really enjoyed.
The final day we spent at Hawaiian falls water park. This was the highlight of the week, and I was really glad we made the decision to go there for Day 3 this year.
Over all, the event was a tremendous success. We had 125 kids registered, and I was turning kids away over the last few days leading up to it.
This event is strictly for fun. We don't provide any scholarships for this event, and it is aimed at kids 7-11 years old.
