Willow Creek Park Pavilion (near Softball Field)
Highland Station Park Pavilion (behind High Country Elementary)
Camelot Square Apartments (behind Saginaw Rec Center & Police Station)
All three sites meet Friday at Fellowship Baptist Church for Celebration Night. Parents and family are invited to attend with their kids for a short opening rally where the kids will get to show off the songs and other things they learned throughout the week! We'll have a big party afterward on the church grounds with lots of fun activities and food!
What ages may attend BKC?
Kindergarten – 5th Grade (exceptions made for preschool siblings)
Does BKC cost anything?
Nope! This is a FREE event offered as a service to the Saginaw community.
What types of activities will my child be doing while at BKC?
Music (with fun motions!), Relay-type Games, Crafts (1 per night), Story Time (with captivating object lessons), and Snacks (allergy-free options available).
How is an evening at BKC structured?
After checking in with our attendance secretaries, your child will join the BKC leaders and the other kids for a fun time of music. Following this, the kids will divide into groups based upon grade level and rotate from station to station with their group leaders.
Grade level rotation groups will be as follows: K-1st / 2nd-3rd / 4th-5th.
Ten minutes before pickup, all the groups will come back together for a quick recap and final song before dismissal.*
*Note: Parents, please wait in line allowing us to sign out the children one at a time to help ensure safety at pick up time.
Will there be snacks and drinks at BKC?
Each night the kids will enjoy a yummy treat during their group’s snack time! Water and Gatorade are available throughout the evening in order to keep the kids well hydrated.
What if my child has a food allergy?
An allergen-free alternative snack will be available each night for kids with food allergies. These snacks will avoid the 8 major allergens (milk, eggs, peanuts, gluten, soy, tree nuts, shellfish, fish). If your child has a dietary need beyond the avoidance of these 8 allergens, please let us know in advance how we may accommodate him or her. Children needing an allergen-free snack will have a special color-coded sticker on their name tag so the workers may accommodate them.
What if my child cannot attend every night?
We'd love to see your kids every night, but if that's not possible, they may come any night they are available.
What should my child wear to BKC?
Kids should wear summer play clothes. Sneakers are preferable for game activities but not a requirement. Kids may get splashed a little by a few games involving water.
Who will be working with my child?
All areas at each site are led by background-check-approved adult volunteers from Fellowship Baptist Church. Teens from the Fellowship Student Ministry will assist the adult leaders.
How will BKC ensure the safety of my child?
A number of safety measures will be in place to ensure the security of your child:
Basic First Aid will be available at each site as well as individuals trained in CPR.
What happens if there’s inclement weather?
In case of bad weather, BKC will be temporarily relocated to the facilities at Fellowship Baptist Church for that evening (click church name for directions).
A text and email will be sent to all parents several hours before BKC if inclement weather arises, causing us to temporarily relocate. BKC sites will not be relocated for scattered light showers and no risk of lightning.
