Church’s camp takes on patriotic hue for nation’s birthday
Tuesday, July 3, 2012
Running carefree around the gymnasium, pre-kindergarteners were generating their own breeze to watch the red and white streamers trail behind their blue, decorated windsocks.
At Trinity Lutheran Church’s Camp TLC, Meredith Muenks is tasked with providing art, music and movement activities each day for four different age groups for 11 weeks.
This week’s theme, “Happy Birthday, America,” helped Muenks develop fun curriculum.
As an art education major at Missouri State University, Muenks was happy to put her knowledge to work.
“When I first heard about this camp (from my roommate in college), I thought it was amazing,” said Muenks of Westphalia. “It’s educational and fun.”
