AOK Is Ready for Amazing SOAR Summer

AOK is in full-blown prep mode, readying for an awesome summer season at CMDS! This is your last week to register for SOAR before the registration fee goes to $50 per child. (It’s still $35 per family from now through Monday.)

Our community of teachers has really turned up the heat on the enrichment camp offerings this year. We have so many to choose from for girls and boys of all ages, from rising PK to rising 7th grade. Everyday I’m Calculatin’, Camp Read-a-Lot, Mad Scientists, Summer Spa Camp, Cheerleaders for Christ, Edible Gardening, Girl Power!, Summer Olympics, Mary Poppins 101 (babysitting), Minions, Dino-riffic Fun, Star Wars, American Girl Doll Sewing, LEGO Mindstorm Robotics. The list goes on and on.

If you haven’t had a chance yet, be sure to download the PDFs at to find at least a few fun weeks for your kids to come to SOAR. You’ll need a break, and they will love it!

Here are the SOAR Day Camp weekly themes for 2016:

June 6-10: Let’s Go on a Safari
June 13-17: Space is the Place
June 20-24: VBS (See note below)
June 27-July 1: Under the Sea
July 11-15: A Camping We Will Go
July 18-22: Champions for Christ
July 25-29: Fear Factor
August 1-5: If I Ran the Circus

(NOTE: SOAR will be closed the weeks of May 30, July 4 and August 8.)

Priority registration for CMDS families has passed, and we are operating on a first-come, first-served basis. And we do expect to have weeks when we are completely full. We really don’t want to see any of our CMDS families to get left out if they need a spot at SOAR!

These are the materials we need to confirm your child’s SOAR attendance: a completed registration form, a weekly options form​ and the registration fee. If any of the required information is missing, your child or children will NOT be registered. All of the forms are available for download here.

We also have a great new SOAR T-shirt this year. Be sure to check the T-shirt box on your registration form! If you have already registered, it’s not too late to order a shirt. Just email us if you want one.

And one more important note: If you register your rising JK-7th grader for SOAR the week of CUMC VBS (June 20-24), there is no need to separately register on the church website. Once registered with SOAR for that week, your child or children will automatically attend VBS. (Rising PK students will not attend, but will have VBS-related activities in their rooms.) The SOAR and VBS registration deadline for that week of June 20-24 is June 13; there will be NO exceptions to this deadline!
