Weekdays between July 20-31 at 10AM CST, join Tyndale Kids authors for a free online summer camp featuring interactive art, writing, science, and Bible lessons! Host Brock Eastman will kick off each session and introduce the featured instructor(s) who will take kids through that day’s interactive elective. Stop by each day or tailor your child’s camp experience to fit their interests by choosing the elective days that most appeal to them.

All electives are led by and tap into the diverse talents of Tyndale Kids’ authors. Each week, kids will walk away with unique new skills like creating their own character voices and expressing worship through art. They’ll explore what it takes to turn ideas into written stories, and have their minds blown with science experiments they can re-create at home. Bible experts will also answer kids’ biggest questions about the Bible and feed their curiosity for God’s Word.

Scroll down for a complete list of elective descriptions and days they will be featured. All sessions will be saved to Facebook and can be watched or re-watched at later times.

Daily Courses

Art Monday 7/20 and 7/27
Author/illustrators Lauren Duncan (Made to Create with All My Heart and Soul) and Sarah Jean Collins (the God Made series) will show kids how to create beautiful art projects using a variety of media and techniques. The two artists have very different styles and methods—Lauren tends to use traditional tools and organic shapes, while Sarah Jean often works with digital tools and geometric shapes. Kids will learn that beauty and art can come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and colors.

Performing Arts Tuesday 7/21 and 7/28
Mike Nawrocki (aka Larry the Cucumber) will bring fun and hilarious lessons such as how to voice different characters and a behind-the-scenes look at film production.

Writing Wednesday 7/22 and 7/29
Dandi Daley Mackall (Larger-Than-Life Lara; Just Sayin’; A Child’s First Bible: Psalms for Little Hearts) will teach kids about the elements of story (character, plot, setting, etc.) and walk them through how to write stories of their own.

Science Thursday 7/23 and 7/30
Brock Eastman (Showdown with the Shepherd) will walk kids through simple but fun experiments and other science projects using objects easily found around the house. Each project has a biblical theme or application.

Bible Friday 7/24 and 7/31
Stephen Arterburn and Marcus Brotherton (Kirby McCook and the Jesus Chronicles) will answer questions about the Bible, both those covered in their book as well as new questions submitted by campers.
