As Suzette Knox, the camp coordinator explains,
"Kids are into sports these days and it's popular with the kids and they come and they have a great time. "
So the Everett Assembly of God turned their Vacation Bible School into a Mega Sports Camp with a biblical message.
This "Going the Distance" camp has grown as an outreach for the community over the last few years.
Coach Bryan Nave says, "They don't realize that we've got them runnin' around going through drills and stuff workin up a sweat getting the exercise that's lot of them probably don't get at home."
Coach Nave's in charge of flag football where Johnathan's been haging out.
"I'm good at stealing flags - if they're going up, like coach taught us, I try to go around and hit them on the dot."
There's also basketball, soccer, volleyball and cheerleading.
Why do the kids like this type of Bible camp?
Ask Johnathan. "Runnin around gettin' exercise and stealin' other people's flags."
