Who We Are
Who WE Are
Our team at KidOne Camps has a passion and purpose to work with kids. We are driven to do our best in investing in the next generation and making a difference in the lives of the people of Coeur d'Alene. We are all Christians and we are here to tell children about Jesus, what He did for them, and how they can grow and defend their faith. In a world filled with questions, we want children to know the answers from the Bible. We have a variety of experiences working with kids, everything from VBS to character class.
The safety of your child is very important to us. A background check is run on each member of our team as well as requiring three references. We have a strict child protection policy that must be followed by everyone. We are here to provide a fun environment for children. We do not tolerate any abuse at any level.
We take our responsibility seriously.
Here are a few details about me.
I've taught and worked with kids in multiple different ways. To start I have a number of nieces and nephews, and take my job as uncle seriously. Trust me, I've spent many hours working up to my favourite uncle status.
But my experience goes beyond my that. For 3 years I worked as an assistant for a summer science day camp. These camps would run twice a day for four days each week. We would do many fun science experiments including make slime and crush soda cans with air. It was quite fun.
I also taught character classes in 5 different public schools, using the Character First curriculum. I would enter into about eight classrooms each day and teach for 30 minutes on a character trait. I taught everything from PK to 6th grade, using puppets, games, skits, and object lessons.
I also taught at Bible club at several schools. This included giving Bible lessons, teaching verses, and being a small group leader. I received training in how to give a Bible lesson, share the gospel and more form the Children’s Ministries Institute course Teaching Children Effectively (TCE™) Level 1.
Creation and apologetics
Along with that, I’ve worked at the Creation Museum as a programs host. This included being a team leader for the Creation Museum Explore Days. Explore days are whole day camps with grades 4-12. Each camp focused on an area of science, such as biology, physical science, dinosaurs and much more. I've also completed an apologetics course by Answers in Genesis.
Teaching kids has been the focus of my life. The reason I teach kids is because God gave me a passion for them. A passion for teaching the next generation about Him. It is my purpose to teach truth, and equip them where they need it.
