Children's & Youth Programs

Programs for Children (0-12 Years)

Our programs for young people feature exciting times of fun, faith-building, and fellowship. Designed to put parents' minds at ease and to allow them to have an enjoyable week at WIM, our children's and youth programs are here during all sessions so you can relax and enjoy the adult offerings, knowing that your kids are having fun and being well cared for. Your kids will love it!

Please read a little about each program below: Children in both the early childhood and elementary programs will have a fun, faith-filled week. An experienced, loving, trained staffer will guide your children through a variety of activities this week. Kids will have fun learning the Bible stories and memorizing verses. Some favorite activities are small-group time, music, snacks, art and recreation.

Infants and toddlers will have a fun week being cared for in a safe, nurturing environment with lots of one-on-one time, singing, outside walks, playtime, and participation in activities as they are ready. We'll try to keep them as close as possible to their home routines with naps and feedings. A few weeks before the program you will receive an e-mail requesting more information about your child and his or her routines so that we can be prepared to care for each child as s/he arrives.

If you have any questions about the programs for children, please contact WIM Children's Program Director Cindy Boldrick, at cboldrick@whitworth.edu.

Programs for Youth (13-17 Years)
The WIM teen group's week mixes worship with service and fellowship with fun all over Spokane. In past years we have led morning worship for the kid's program, kept journals and prayed over scripture. Additionally, we have been blessed with the opportunity to serve at a community garden in West Central Spokane, planting, weeding, putting up a fence and learning about the outreach programs West Central has to offer. As far as fun goes, we've done everything under the sun: water parks, thrift-shopping, berry-picking, scavenger hunts, mini-golfing, roller-blading and go-karting are just some of the activities we've enjoyed in the past five years. This year we're looking forward to another jam-packed, fun, and exhilarating week!
