How Do I get started?

The twelve steps below are provided to aid churches and ministries in the development of summer sports camps and/or afterschool programs. These best practices will equip churches to holistically meet the needs of children, teens, and families, especially those affected by Adverse Childhood Experiences. If a church is just beginning to explore ways to meet these needs, consider starting by hosting a one-week sports camp in a community of need. This ministry can be expanded by hosting a month-long sports camp or school-year afterschool program.
