First Baptist Church schedules Kidz Kamp

First Baptist Church, 1750 N. Mountain St., Carson City, will hold its Kidz Kamp from 9:30 a.m. to noon daily, June 6-10 for ages 4-12.

Kids will go on an adventure like no other, deep within the mysterious sea. They will be submerged in God’s Word and discover Jesus didn’t just see what’s on the outside of people. He looked deep down on the inside.

So it’s time to grab some goggles, step into some flippers, and dive in to find truth below the surface. There will be music, crafts, missions, games and snacks. There’s no cost for the camp.

Theme of the camp is Jesus sees. Jesus knows. Jesus saves.

To attend the camp, complete a pre-registration form, which are available at the church office or can be downloaded at For more information, call (775) 882-1851.
