There’s a lot more to teaching than standing up in front of a class and giving a lesson

Find out what makes a helpful visual
teaching aid. Then design and create your own. At the end of the week, put it on display, and then
take it home with you for future use.
See how to make Bible stories,
children’s books, and art projects come alive in the classroom. Then plan and teach your own
lesson for the class.
Learn how to capture attention. Then
practice with mock classroom scenarios.
Discover how to incorporate technology in
the classroom. Then use them during everyday activities.
However you spend your free time, you’ll be spending it with your newfound friends. You can
explore the Sports Center—climb the rock wall,
bowl with friends, cool off in the ice-skating rink, or make a splash at the water park. You can
grab a smoothie at the Common Grounds Café and
just hang out. Each day, daily challenges will be a time to come together and grow spiritually.
Teachers from Pensacola Christian College and Pensacola Christian
Academy with years of teaching experience—and a passion for teaching—work
alongside you all week. They share personal insight and helpful tips that you can apply in your
future classroom, while helping your younger siblings, or even while babysitting. You may want
to be a teacher, or you might just want to see what teaching is like. Either way, every camper
