The Great Kingdom Caper - Cracking the Character Code™
The Great Kingdom Caper - Cracking the Character Code was our 2003 Vacation Bible School and about 40 children ages 3-11 were registered.
Hillside held its adventure on June 23-27. We investigated amazing Bible stories, play action-packed games, create fun crafts, learn great new songs and choreographed action moves, enjoy jolly good snacks, and much more! Despite the heat wave that insisted on joining us for the week, the kids had lots of fun and learned a lot, and we had fun working with the kids (and lost a few pounds to boot!).
We traveled the vibrant streets of London on an intriguing mission to crack the elusive Character Code as sleuths (AKA the children) and inspectors (AKA the adult leaders) solved The Great Kingdom Caper. This caper was an exciting and engaging escapade filled with twists, turns, and surprises.
Our trained group of excellent inspectors led sleuths on an investigation that the children were glad they did not miss. Sleuths were on special assignment to investigate and uncover clues to the Character Code and ultimately discovered how to live with Christian character.
