CREATION BIG CAMP PROGRAM
Children are exposed to evolutionary ideas from a very young age, through TV. day-care, books and even clothing labels.  Rejecting Biblical creation is often the first step in rejection of Christianity.  This is a seven day program to show what God made on each day and also explain why the world doesn't look like that any more.

This program aims to teach that: We do this by:
A big thank you must go to all the people in Far North Queensland who contributed to this program and made it possible.

The program is split into five possible sections:

Room Decorations:

The colourful banners were made using house paint on bed sheet material; some of them have felt or cardboard pictures attached with sticky-backed velcro; the banner for Day 4 has christmas light stars poked through and beach ball planets hung in front.  Balloon trees hide the poles in the middle of the room.  Walking-pet balloons and cardboard grass looked good with the Day 6 banner - the sections of grass have slots cut at each end so they can be fitted together in a zig-zag line or taken apart for easy storage.  


Estimated Costs of Program:

We were very blessed and mannaged to get many of our supplies on sale and others donated - Thankyou God!

Without sales I expected: Approx $17 per child for crafts, up to $35 if buying brushes, paint, pencils, scissors etc.  Approx $225 for room decorations; could be as much as $550 if also buying sheeting, paint, beach ball planets and felt for board etc.
