Day In At HICLC…

Christian Summer Camp & DIVE In Reading Camp Have Begun!!

This year we have over 30 children registered for each of our Summer Camps!! This is a milestone year at HICLC because it’s our 10th year for Christian Summer Camp! The aim of these weeks together is to impact the hearts of 3rd, 4th and 5th graders so they can learn more about who God is and who they are in Him! This is done not only through time in God’s Word, but time spent discovering the gifts and talents that the Lord has given through academics, sports, field trips and relationship building!

Our DIVE IN Reading Camp is for K-2nd grade and is partially funded though a grant from the Alabama Department of Education. The goal of this camp is to incorporate reading enrichment into a variety of activities to sharpen skills and provide an academic edge for the upcoming school year. This summer we are blessed to have 2 certified teachers on board, as well as a variety of volunteer support providing enrichment activities. There will even be a therapy dog on hand to listen to our kid’s read!

Volunteer Orientation Dates: Saturday, August 24th 10:00AM-Noon & Thursday, August 29th 5:30-7:00 PM

The Huntsville Inner City Learning Center provides children Kindergarten – 8th grade with a highly structured, disciplined after school program from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. We also have two Summer Camp programs in June and July each year. Our aim in all that we do is to provide children with a safe environment and for them to learn who God is and who they are in Him. Our volunteers are more than tutors, meal makers or enrichment guides. Our volunteers model the love of Jesus and His faithful by building relationships with our students. We are called to love the Lord and to love one another; therefore, we believe that a relationship with Jesus and with one another is foundational in all that we do.
