On Friday, January 26, you will experience world-class teaching on the 7 C’s of History that will equip you to answer the questions your kids are asking.
On Saturday, January 27, you’ll sample snacks, watch demonstrations of the crafts and science experiments, gain an overview of the Bible lesson time, enjoy a snippet of the daily drama, hear decorating tips and tricks, engage with the Jungle Journey kit and product line, and more.
