We will be at Louise Hays Park by the amphitheater from 6:00-8:00 PM for our second event: COMPETE. Wear closed-toe shoes and bring sunscreen and a towel! Week 1 was drippin' in finesse as Team Finesse took home the W! Can Team Lit, Fresh, Gucci or Dope reign in week 2? There's only 1 way to find out!
What exactly is Way Cool Wednesdays?
This summer, the kids and youth ministries at Kerrville Church of Christ (KCC) are collaborating to bring one of a kind events for elementary students on five Wednesdays this summer! (Maybe bringing five of a kind events...) Each week we will have a new activity and we are going ALL OUT! We'll have teams, we'll compete, we'll have fun and we'll develop relationships among teens and kids.
What if I'm not a member of KCC?
No problem! We are stoked to offer these events ABSOLUTELY FREE to any elementary student who wants to be involved! We just require the parent/guardian of each child fills out our online medical release form.
What if I can't make it to all of the Way Cool Wednesdays?
You can still be Way Cool! We want you to be here as often as you can, but you can jump in whatever week you would like with no strings attached!
What can I expect?
You can expect 2 hours of fun and fellowship! We will partner background checked adults and high school students with elementary students to create "teams." These teams will get to know each other well, have a great time together and maybe even learn a few things. Each night will consist of different activities and may even be at different venues. Stay tuned to keep up to date! As for which events we'll be doing each night, well, part of what makes these Wednesdays Way Cool is the mystery! Read the one word description and use your imagination. You may or may not be right!
What does my child need to bring?
Each night will be different. Look at each event card (graphic) to see what you need to bring each night. Many nights will need closed-toe shoes. Water and sunscreen are always a good idea!
Will there be food?
We will not be providing a meal at Way Cool Wednesdays, but we will have a halftime and get a snack. If your child has any food allergies, please have your child bring a personal snack. We will also have water available, but it's never a bad idea to bring your own!
Can my child bring a friend?
Absofruitly! Please direct a parent/guardian of the friend your kid is bringing to the online registration page so that we can be prepared. The online registration page is the "sign up free" button next to the above graphic. Ask friends to fill out the question saying who invited them. The person who invites the most new participants this summer will get to shave Mr. Clark's head!
What about social distancing?
Events such as these are certainly tough to manage in terms of social distancing. In a perfect world, we won't need to worry about it by the end of summer. However, we are preparing to implement some strategies to help with social distancing and the spreading of germs. Getting kids together makes it impossible to maintain 6 feet of space between each person. However, we will serve pre-packaged snacks and water bottles. If other snacks/drinks are served, they will be prepared only by gloved hands. We will do our best to utilize our "teams" (see above for definition of teams) as natural ways to maintain limited contact. We also ask that if anyone in your household is feeling ill or running a temperature at or above 100 degrees, please stay home that night. This is a large kids event and, while we hope we can manage the spread of germs, we cannot guarantee social distancing.
Can I volunteer?
As long as you fill out a background check and are cleared through that, we would love for you to volunteer! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested and we can get rolling!
