Bezalel Project is a free after-school program and summer day-camp program for kids 8-13 years of age. During the school year our program is usually 3 days per week starting in late September and going until early May. During the summer we operate a 6 week long (4 days per week) Summer Day Camp program beginning in late June.
What exactly do we do at Bezalel? In short: we have fun! Through the catalysts of academics, arts, and leadership; we help each child learn to see themselves as being made in the image of God. We encourage learning and literacy in our program by providing homework help during the school year and reading/writing time during the summer to help children expand their literacy abilities. We play games and participate in a variety of activities together such as; taking part in a photography project, cooking a meal together, jewelry making, and even guest-led Holy Yoga, soccer, and Zumba sessions plus lots and lots of art activities. We provide children with a variety of experiences through field trips, from horse-back riding and ice skating to a baking workshop at a local bakery. We teach our students the value of service by serving our neighbors and community together in a number of ways; including painting murals to beautify the city and fight blight, raking leaves, and shoveling snow. Lastly, we surround youth with healthy relationships and connect them with positive mentors who encourage them along the way. These are just some of the things we have done in years’ past. This year we would love to provide many more opportunities for our children to explore their interests, develop their God-given abilities, and have fun while doing it. And of course, we'd love for your child to be apart of the fun.
